Time for a Section 12*

By Libby

There's stupid, pig-headed stubborness like refusing to admit mistakes and desperate cluelessness like clinging to small moments of success that don't amount to any sort of victory. There's failure to accept reality like avoiding news reports that don't fit a preconceived scenario and there's deliberate deceit like knowingly telling outrageous lies even as the glaring truth makes a mockery of the words.

And then there is flat out bat shit crazy.
Friends of his from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated "I am the president!" He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of "our country's destiny."
Forget impeachment or frogwalking out of the White House. What we need is the men in white coats to take him away and get this man some badly needed treatment for a complete mental breakdown.

I've been thinking for some time that so many administration insiders have been speaking up against the Commander Guy not just out of political expediency in running from a lame duck, but also because they know he's having a mental breakdown and have a genuine fear of what insane measures he might take in his remaining months in office. That quote pretty much seals it as far as I can see.

[*Section 12 is a term used in Masschusetts courts for involuntary commitment to a mental health facility for the criminally insane.]

And the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution. However the entire enabling government should be removed, not just the one psychotic mass murderer.

That is the problem Nolo. It's not just the nutcase in the Oval office. He's loaded the entire system with corrupt and incompetent cronies. There's no easy fix.

In Florida we Baker Act these nuts, locking them up if they appear to be a threat to themselves or others. Hello, 3500 dead in Iraq alone, how much more of a threat could he be?

But that would leave ol' Dickie boy as President and the thought of that makes me want to curl into a ball and suck my thumb.

Clearly we have to impeach Cheney at the same time LLL or we would surely be in a worse mess.
