Just as I suspected!

It seems that a noted psychiatrist has determined that liberals are nuts.

Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder.

"Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded," says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." "Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave."

Wait, it gets better.
Rossiter says the kind of liberalism being displayed by the two major candidates for the Democratic Party presidential nomination can only be understood as a psychological disorder.

"A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do," he says. "A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation's citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do."
Now, as much as I would like to jump up and down and ROFL and all of that, I have to take the good doctor's premise with a grain of salt. Suppose some commie rat bastard had written a book in which he "proved" that Libertarianism was a mental illness caused by a psychotic Greta Garbo complex - then how would I react? I mean, these people can claim to have "proof" of just about anything, but that don't make it so, now does it?

Still...the thought of pinko heads exploding at the very idea that their cherished Liberalism is equated with being a spoiled, angry child...
