Conspiracy Theory Hits Mainstream

Well, well, well...looks like the term 'Loony Left' has something to it after all! According to Dr. Krauthammer:

It has been 25 years since I discovered a psychiatric syndrome (for the record: "Secondary Mania," Archives of General Psychiatry, November 1978), and in the interim I haven't been looking for new ones. But it's time to don the white coat again. A plague is abroad in the land.

Bush 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.
Interestingly, this was the exact same 'theory' foisted on me by a delusional former friend a few days after the two year anniversary of 9/11 - so now there's an actual doctor saying that this kind of thinking represents a mental defect? Wow. That's what you call 'argument ammunition!'
