B. D. S.:

Just how crazy are the Dems?: A new poll on 9/11 indicates that they definitely have a paranoia problem. (Jonah Goldberg, May 15, 2007, LA Times)

Rasmussen Reports, the public opinion outfit, recently asked voters whether President Bush knew about the 9/11 attacks beforehand. The findings? Well, here's how the research firm put it: "Democrats in America are evenly divided on the question of whether George W. Bush knew about the 9/11 terrorist attacks in advance. Thirty-five percent of Democrats believe he did know, 39% say he did not know and 26% are not sure."

So, 1 in 3 Democrats believe that Bush was in on it somehow, and a majority of Democrats either believe that Bush knew about the attacks in advance or can't quite make up their minds.

Even loonier are the polls showing that blacks don't think Barry Bonds used performance enhancing drugs.

Bonds Derangement Syndrome? I thought that only affected holier-than-thou "baseball writers" who can't seem to realize that steroids do not affect the amazing eye contact Bonds always had.

Then again, I suppose I'd have B(onds)DS if Bonds treated me the way he treats the sports press.

This raises the question, to what historically oppressed minority group do Democrats belong? Or, to put it another way, what's *their* excuse?

Hand eye co-ordination so good you add two and half shoe sizes to your feet?

What about the jury that acquitted OJ (Simpson)?

While many of these respondents are just nuts, I'll bet vanity drives a lot of their answers (as in, "see, I've always known Bush was involved").

It's like the people who believe Mossad did it, because the Arabs are too dumb to have pulled it off.

I'm convinced marijuana use is responsible for B.D.S. Millions of our fellow americans are are walking around in a drug induced psychosis.
