I have absolutely no use nor respect for Michael Savage, but one thing he says a lot (it’s kind of hard to avoid people quoting him) is that “liberalism is a mental disorder.” I dunno if I’d go quite that far, but I think I’ve started to notice that certain strains of liberalism do seem to have a poor medical effect.
In particular, on their hearing. They hear certain things, but for some reason, it comes out another way. Here are a few examples:
1) Bush says about the Plame leak: If any laws have been broken, appropriate measures will be taken.
Translation: As soon as there’s the slightest evidence that Rove might’ve been even tangentially involved in this, I’ll fire his ass. But for heaven’s sake NOBODY go to the horse’s mouth — Novak — and find out the TRUTH!
2) Bush says we have evidence that Saddam is pursuing weapons of mass destruction, and he is resisting our attempts to make sure he isn’t — in clear violation of the terms of the 1991 ceasefire.
Translation: Saddam’s got nukes! He’s gonna use ’em!
3) Bush says Iraq clearly isn’t an imminent threat, but we don’t have the luxury of waiting for him to pose one — he has to be dealt with BEFORE he progresses that far.
Translation: Saddam’s got the nukes on a five-minute countdown! We gotta hit him NOW before he hits us!
4) Ambassador Joseph Wilson’s report on his trip to Niger clearly supports other evidence that Saddam was looking to obtain uranium — despite his frequent public comments to the contrary.
Translation: Wilson found no proof Saddam was trying to get WMDs, and he’s being crucified for being honest!
I think it’s time for some serious federal funding into investigating this spreading disorder. It’s already showing signs of becoming an epidemic.
