Charles Krauthammer: Bush Derangement Syndrome
CharlesBush Derangement Syndrome: the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency -- nay -- the very existence of George W. Bush.
This is a pretty old article, but still perfectly applicable today. Other tidbits?
Even worse is the fact that he is now exhibiting symptoms of a related illness, Murdoch Derangement Syndrome (MDS), in which otherwise normal people believe that their minds are being controlled by a single, very clever Australian.
A couple weeks ago I was in my Political Parties and Interest Groups class and a girl behind me, chair of the Environmental Committee with all the views incumbent on such a position, mentioned the horror of "media consolidation" and "limited news sources." That otherwise intelligent and thoughtful people actually believe this stuff is what really scares me.
