I love when people become idiots^2
J Gaszhek , Adventures Of Brave Soldier Joseph Schweik, 1921
Two episodes qualify for the heading and both featured on MSNBC, Morning Joe:
- Jane Harman tells us about self-radicalization as a "new normal'.
Representative Jane Harman by Center for American Progress Action Fund
Kudos to Linda Milazzo, who in Y2010 already had described to us that colorful personality.
Now the Calamity Jane is back with a vengeance. Now she adopts the "self-radicalization'- the new rrrrr- revolutionary concept according to which people can radicalize on their own through Internet and then use pressure-cookers to make bombs. IMHO you can radicalize just from watching Morning Joe and seeing Jane on it but I might be wrong. On the Internet you can radicalize through watching movies like Revenge where perpetual violence takes place in the Hampton's or by reading Charles Krauthammer, or by just placing the Cheney's face on the screen and" looking at it for a while. Idiocy^2. Of course, if you assume the self-radicalization idea then the area for Jane's beloved home radicalization prevention measures significantly expands and the only way to prove thyself as a good citizen is to claim total imbecility. But that place is already taken by the hero of our second episode.

- GW opens his library.
The word "library' does not seem to fit GW although his wife was our Chief Librarian during his tenure. But they were all there: GW, the Decider, Bill W, the "terrible earthquake devastated Haiti but we have a lot of work ahead of us', Barack O, the "Droner'- they were all there, ready to read. Per the description of the library I doubt if there is anything there worth reading but I guess they can take the High -Schoolers there to take a nap and have some GW -- cola. High --Schoolers do not read anymore anyway; they watch pictures.
Carl Bernstein called the Iraqi war "Insane' on Joe's show. He got afraid of his own courage but even that was immediately confronted by Loyal Joe, who engaged into a long diatribe about "being in that chair', etc. Of course, NONE of them mentioned the victims, hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of people, horrible cultural disaster, death and destruction, subsequent Middle East destabilization with more tragedies in Libya and Syria, moral fall of the US and transforming of our country into the bully of the world. They did not mention Vincent Bugliosi's courageous struggle to show that GW stole the Y2000 elections. Insanity looked at them from the podium at that library but IT WAS A NEW NORMAL and they all succumbed.
A new normal indeed. Kudos to Gaszhek and immortal Joseph Schweik. I have the book and every day after Morning Joe's I reread a page or two from it and get my sanity back. I am immune to the new normal! I like my old normal the way it is.
