Liberal Tourette Syndrome… They simply can’t help themselves!

While many conservatives are coming down hard on those who used the funeral of Corretta Scott King as a platform to embarrass the president, I have decided to cut them some slack. Why? I believe they simply can’t help themselves.

It is my contention that their actions are consistent with an offshoot of another well known disease known as Tourette Syndrome. We’ll call it Liberal Tourette (Sounds French, so it clearly fits!)

Here is a brief description of this disease from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders:

Tourette syndrome (TS) is a neurological disorder characterized by repetitive, stereotyped, involuntary movements and vocalizations called tics.

Tell me that this does not sound like the constant rantings of Liberals?

“Weapons of Mass Destruction! Bush stole the election! Hurricane Katrina! K street project!”

No matter what the topic may be or how inappropriate the venue might be liberals cannot resist the urge to throw out the same old tired one-liners; as if civil, intellectual discussion is beyond them. And the fact that these instances are occurring more frequently can also be explained:

Tics are often worse with excitement or anxiety and better during calm, focused activities. Certain physical experiences can trigger or worsen tics, for example tight collars may trigger neck tics, or hearing another person sniff or throat-clear may trigger similar sounds.

Democrats have been out of power for so long that when they are finally given an opportunity to speak out, the stress and anxiety of constantly losing to Republicans just gets the best of them. And while not every liberal politician demonstrates the symptoms, you can bet it is only a matter of time before they do.

Although the symptoms of TS are involuntary, some people can sometimes suppress, camouflage, or otherwise manage their tics in an effort to minimize their impact on functioning. However, people with TS often report a substantial buildup in tension when suppressing their tics to the point where they feel that the tic must be expressed. Tics in response to an environmental trigger can appear to be voluntary or purposeful but are not.

So let’s take it easy on the liberals. They’re sick…
