Re-targeting disgust & hatred

"Bush Derangement Syndrome" on the left has been replaced with "Obama Derangement Syndrome" on the right (see definition 2). Evidence from the vast majority of my engineering co-workers, Faux News, AM Talk Radio, and affluent distant relatives indicate to me (and I am not an epidemiologist, just a social observer) that ODS is becoming a pandemic in the US. I am not sure whether it is hilarious & delusional, or very sad.


  1. I see the #1 definition applies to Obama supporters. Seems to be fair that the #2 definition, that the derangement is on the part of the irrational detractors, since "bush derangement syndrome" also applied to detractors. But I guess "derangement" can only ever apply to liberals. Huh.

  2. Krauthammer is not only ugly, he's a douche as well. Fundamentally, I think it is he who is deranged. The whole "urban dictionary" 'thumbs up, thumbs down' is like carpet bombing... eventually something of substance gets hit with a whole lot of noise and wasted energy in-between. My point was that despising Bush for legitimate reasons Nationally has now been replaced with despising Obama for imagined and over-blown reasons.
