Oh good blame the victim.
Go two posts up to see why the picture had political significance.
Could very well be a political “hit” similar to Clinton’s Dixie Mafia tactics.
Definitely not above those that MUST keep their political machine running no matter who gets “hurt.”
That picture was a bomb that detonated all over blogger. It was a stupid, politically naive and desperately amoral idea to think that such a tactic would work in McDaniel’s favor.
The blowback was completely obvious and predictable for even the average non-political person, so why would an above average politically engaged person do or get involved in such a politically dumb action.
That is what demonstrates the “defective thinking” involved. Only someone engaged in grandiose and magical thinking would entertain and carry out such a stupid idea, because they dismissed the instantly obvious downside. The whole operation evidenced a certain irrationality typical of manic thinking.
