The Insanity Of Bush Hatred

The Insanity Of Bush Hatred
By Peter Berkowitz

Hating the president is almost as old as the republic itself. The people, or various factions among them, have indulged in Clinton hatred, Reagan hatred, Nixon hatred, LBJ hatred, FDR hatred, Lincoln hatred, and John Adams hatred, to mention only the more extravagant hatreds that we Americans have conceived for our presidents.

But Bush hatred is different. It's not that this time members of the intellectual class have been swept away by passion and become votaries of anger and loathing. Alas, intellectuals have always been prone to employ their learning and fine words to whip up resentment and demonize the competition.

Bush hatred, however, is distinguished by the pride intellectuals have taken in their hatred, openly endorsing it as a virtue and enthusiastically proclaiming that their hatred is not only a rational response to the president and his administration but a mark of good moral hygiene.

Personally, I think they get off on the hate. I do.

Bush hatred is their mental masturbation.

As I keep asking, what are these "Children of the Corn'' going to do when this President leaves office? I'm telling you, just as sure as there is BDS, there is going to be some kind of ''therapy'' for the ''post-Bush Derangement Syndrome''. I'm serious.Becuase these twits are in for some screamingly wicked political cold-turkey. I sure would HATE to be one of them. J"Mac.
