There is so much insanity going on today that I hardly know which way to blog. One psychiatrist cannot possibly keep track of it all--a battalion of them is needed.

Here are just a few on the international front:

"Sharon's Illness is a Gift of God" ; and what, pray tell, was Arafat's illness? And speaking of "gifts of God", I wonder if that is how the Egyptians are feeling about their new neighbors who are not Israel's problem any more?

Captain Ed discusses the enormity of Palestinian gratitude. But what could one expect when Palestinians encourage mothers to be sociopaths and all-around pathetic human beings?

And how about this "Miracle on Trentaquattro Street"? It must be a modern Italian remake of the old classic.

And on the home front:

The Anchoress has a good handle on the emotionalism and hysteria of a media that continues to let the public down. Personally, I don't care anymore and just wish they would run out of gas is some lonely, deserted part of the universe.

Meanwhile, Lefty blogs are absolutely aghast that Bush has dared (dared!!) to make some recess appointments! Why it is simply unbelievable that the President would do such a thing when no other presidents in history have ever.....nevermind.

And last--but not least-- the BLAME BUSH FOR EVERYTHING crowd is now gearing up to blame him for the Sego mining tragedy. Just as they blamed him for Katrina; and the Tsunami deaths; and ...well...EVERYTHING since the beginning of time (except, of course, for a roaring economy; increased freedom in the world; or for protecting the homeland for the last four years--those are all someone else's doing).

It is still the morning, but I think I'm gonna go have a drink. I hear that you can have a healthier and happier life with some free drinks. Oh wait...that's only true for homeless alcoholics.

Soon, science will "prove" that all addicts feel better with free distribution of their drug of choice! Soon it will become the government's responsibility through our taxes to provide it to them. I can't wait for the first FFDC (Free Federal Drink Center) to open in my neighborhood.

Then we have the latest on the scandal front--except that it has to do with Clinton (i.e., a Democrat) so don't expect much exposure in the MSM. I'll bet it won't even make the NYT since it is only a mere $700,000. I mentioned another instance of this particular derangement yesterday.

Let me balance some of the above insanity with a quote from Rep. Jane Harmon, ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, (from Power Line ) - not that a voice of reason will have any impact on the level of craziness and distortion surrounding the issue:

As the Ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, I have been briefed since 2003 on a highly classified NSA foreign collection program that targeted Al Qaeda. I believe the program is essential to US national security and that its disclosure has damaged critical intelligence capabilities.

And for the rest of the day's insanity forecast: more distortionscloudy with occasional hysteriarain and thunder.
