"Feelings of withdrawal Feelings of isolation Emotional anger and bitterness Loss of appetite Sleeplessness Nightmares Pervasive moodiness, including endless sulking Excessively worried about the direction of the country."
Hmm, that covers every Democrat in the country. Got themselves a money-maker here.
Check out the name on the graphic (right click --> properties)
"Feelings of withdrawal Feelings of isolation"
"Feelings.....nothing more than feelings......."
I also love the acronyms here...AHA, a PEST!!
Pandering to get your DX in the manuals and your name in the APA journal is a farce.
I just called the AHA, and spoke to an "associate" there. (Dr. Gordon, cited above, was not available.)
The associate said that the label has since been changed to "Post Election Stress Disorder," and that AHA no longer uses the term "selection."
I tried to get him to tell me whether the term "selection" was in any way meant to suggest that Bush was "selected, not elected."
I couldn't get a straight answer, though it was pretty clear from the conversation that this guy is NOT a Bush supporter.
He told me that the label "Post Election Selction Trauma" was first coined in 1996 to describe Republicans upset over the re-election of Clinton.
But apparently, the AHA has dropped the term "selection" and no longer uses it. He said it is the press that continues to use the term even though it is no longer operational.
Thought you'd like to know.
My new one is, rather than PC, call it Liberal Internationalist Speech Protocol (L.I.S.P)
When Republicans lose, we get over it. Methinks your typical Democrat is an emotional cripple.
Sounds like they are just having anti-Bush bitch sessions, LOL.
"He told me that the label "Post Election Selction Trauma" was first coined in 1996 to describe Republicans upset over the re-election of Clinton."
Sounds like typical liberal double-speak. I can't recall anything about 1996 except Republicans being disappointed but not surprised. We were sandbagged again by that Frank Purdue sound-alike Ross Perot.
I ended up debating a democrat this weekend at a party. He was everything the stereotype called for. He said trademark democrat talking points such as I must be racists because it is "impossible" to be a republican and not be a racist. Of course he made sure to mention this in the presence of a black man superior in rank (Captain). He also had to remark that only an idiot could believe that their was possibly a God. I got very frustrated, because logic made no dent in his close-minded opinion. We almost took it outside once. Luckily we have wives who look out for us. His wife however was a republican and a Christian. I was amazed at this. I respected her that she didn't allow his opinions to sway her, and that they got along so well when disagreeing on such key points, but...who knows what goes on behind closed doors?
Dr. Gordon supposedly had numerous cases in 1996 when Klinton won but fails to report this because it is supposed to be "private" info. Hannity then asked why he was speaking about this and Dr. Gordon was blaming the media for all of the publicity. This is total BS because I remember the guy was on either CNBC or CNN being interviewed about this garbage right after the election. The guy should be running for Chairman of the DNC because he is such a left-wing nut.
Partially paraphrased conversation:
Dr Gordon: "This man (BUSH) checks with God before he checks with his VP (on important matters)".
Hannity: "What's wrong with that?"
Dr. Gordon: "Nothing, but ..."
Hannity: "Why do you have a problem with God?"
OK, lets try that again doc:
Post-Election Selection Depression...
P.E.S.D. - PEST
sorry I found it hilarious
He is laughing all the way to the bank though...
Poor delicate sensitive disappointed idiots...What IS the world coming to?
Boca Raton is in Palm Beach county which voted 60% Kerry and 40% Bush. Here's how they get so isolated. Groups of couples who have been friends all of their lives decide to retire to Florida together, mostly from New York city. Many are Jewish. It is their sticking together and not participating in the larger society that renders them isolated and afraid.
As my parents live there, I know it well. My dad used to have his office right above Robert Wexler's and rode the elevator with him on many occassions.
Rob misspelled a wonderful blessing.
These "poor delicate sensitive disappointed idiots", as you quite accurately named them, are going to be the reason this country eventually falls to terrorism. Can you imagine a few generations from now, when society has turned every young person into one of these fragile-as-glass pansies, these dopes being our only hope to defend this country? We'd have a carbon copy of the French army.
