    One way to define the dementia that has gripped the right in America would be to start with a list various synonymous phrases for dementia: derangement, insanity, madness, mental decay, mental deterioration, mental disorder, personality change, softening of the brain, unbalance...

    The list could go on but I think the point is made. What concerns me is that what once passed for wierdness in cyberspace, the hyberbolic thread titles on internet message boards, has now become unofficial party speak for the opponents and sworn enemies of everything Obama. It seems as if the right's opposition to everything Obama has morphed into a rightist red version of those crazy leftist progressive pink ladies. Just look at the news:

    On the subject of Nebraska Senator Nelson and the Nebraska Governor, was the word 'bribe' every used or has the right media invented the link between a deal and a bribe?

    Look at the death panel hoopla. On one hand Palin says the use of the term 'death panels' was a metaphor and on the other hand...

    YOu get the 'birthers' and tea baggers and other assorted fringe groups meeting with and being urged on by sitting members of congress , some in GOP leadership positions.

    One never saw (to my knowledge) any leader of the DNC urging those crazy pink ladies on.

    Have you read the stimulus bill yet?

    No, why then no wonder why you didn't know that "Health Benefit Advisory councils" are in the STIMULUS BILL...you know those things Sara Palin Dubbed "Death Panels"

    Sheesh Dev, don't be like John Conyors....read the bills man.
