If you want to see a beautiful(to use the word badly) example of PDS,

go to Best of the Web Today and look at the piece titled Hating Sarah Palin. It refers to an article in Salon by a first-class freakin' nutcase named Lamott who has such opinions as
I sat outside a 7-Eleven and had a sacramental Dove chocolate bar. Jeez: Here we are again. A man and a woman whose values we loathe and despise -- lying, rageful and incompetent, so dangerous to children and old people, to innocent people in every part of the world -- are being worshiped, exalted by the media, in a position to take a swing at all that is loveliest about this earth and what's left of our precious freedoms.

When I got home from church, I drank a bunch of water to metabolize the Dove bar and called my Jesuit friend, who I know hates these people, too. I asked, "Don't you think God finds these smug egomaniacs morally repellent? Recoils from their smugness as from hot flame?"

And he said, "Absolutely. They are everything He or She hates in a Christian."


If you can stomach it, or desire to see PDS in a fairly pure form displayed by one of the 'elites' who thinks they- using a government run by them, of course- should control your life, you can click on the link at the WSJ site; I'm not linking to it. You can pretty much get it all from this paragraph:
Everything you need to know about how to bear up during these two months is already inside you. Go within: Work on your own emotional acre. Stand still, and hurt, and feel crazy. Then drink a lot of water, pray, meditate, rest. Rest is a spiritual act. Now, I am a reform Christian, so it is permissible for me to secretly believe that God hates this woman, too. I heard God slam down a couple of shooters while she was talking the other night.

'It is permissible for me to secretly believe that God hates this woman'. I tend to have something of Harry Dresden's feelings about God, but in my most dejected moments I have not thought something like that about anyone. That's just plain wrong.

These people really, truly are effing insane.

Today was a good day, I'm not going to ruin it by going over to Salon's Crapsite.   Thanks Firehand for, as it's said, doing the reading so I don't have too!

This is why I hate some people. Perhaps God would like for me to tell this idiot and others to kiss my ass. (And I say, "Kiss my ass" in a holy way...so for all of you who might say, "You're Christian, and you speak like that? And feel like that? The answer is a very loud, "Hell Yeah!"

libs really don't get the 'God thing' do they?...it's something they can warp or just cast on or off...they need to read the instruction book that comes with it.
