Sea Change

Inquiring mind ...

Boned Jello

I've asked this before as an aside, or a comment,  but I really do want to know.  In the event that, say, the entire left coast fell into the sea, would California, Oregon and Washington's congressional delegation be unseated?  When?    Who decides?  I think this needs to be settled anon! I've been praying real hard, and there's a " tingling." 

How big?


A Shrink Asks:
What's Wrong with Obama?

Cuzzin Ricky brought this, what I missed, to my attention.  First thing I saw was this apparent lede --  The 9mm won't save your ass Obama!  It's actually an oddly placed advertisement for combat arms training, but it made me wet. 

Robin of Berkeley, a shrink from  ... you know,  begins ... "Obama's odd mannerisms intrigue a psychotherapist like me. He also presents a serious diagnostic challenge. "   Actually this is a good read even if it was about a nobody.  Here's a few snippets about Mr. Nutjob.

For one, Obama's teleprompter and the men behind the Blackberry keep him well-scripted. We know so little about the facts of his life.

But it's more than just a lack of information. Obama himself is a strange bird. He doesn't fit easily into any diagnostic category.

Many people attribute Obama's oddness to his narcissism. True, Obama has a gargantuan ego, and he is notoriously thin-skinned.

Yet a personality disorder like narcissism does not explain Obama's strangeness: his giggling while being asked about the economy; his continuing a shout-out rather than announcing the Ft. Hood shootings; or his vacations, golfing, partying and fundraising during the calamitous oil spill.

Take also Obama's declaring on the "Today Show" that he wants to know whose ass to kick. Consummate narcissists would never stoop to this vulgar display of adolescent machismo.

Obama is flat when passion is needed; he's aggressive when savvy is required. What's most worrisome is that Obama doesn't even realize that his behavior is inappropriate.

So if it's not just simple narcissism, what is wrong with Obama? Since I've never evaluated him, I can't say for sure. But I can hazard some educated guesses.

If I saw a client as disconnected as him, the first thing I would wonder: Is something wrong with his brain? And I'd consider the following theoretical diagnostic possibilities.

Nevada subcommittee seeks tire pressure check law

State Sen. Mike Schneider, a Las Vegas Democrat, says it will increase highway safety, save gas and reduce air pollution.

The bill would be considered during the 2011 legislative session.
Not all lawmakers were for it.

Republican Assemblywoman Heidi Gansert of Reno said while checking air pressure in tires is a good idea, she opposed mandating tire checks, saying it comes down to personal responsibility.

Tea party chucking another favorite

The pattern has become familiar in GOP primary fights this year, with "establishment" candidates such as Gov. Charlie Crist in Florida, Sen. Robert F. Bennett in Utah and Mrs. Lowden all pushed aside by more conservative rivals.

Without the Tea Party then, Crist.  'Nuff said.
