Prominent DC Shrink Diagnoses Bush to be a Paranoid, Sadistic Meglomaniac

Prominent DC Shrink Diagnoses Bush to be a Paranoid, Sadistic Meglomaniac: "Prominent DC Shrink Diagnoses Bush to be a Paranoid, Sadistic Meglomaniac

My initial reaction to this article is that it sounds sound and reasonable but can we really support Kerry? The drinking, torturing animals, and the contempt for his opponents was a tip off for me. If you want to read a very scary book on Bush read Christopher Anderson's George and Laura. It is a Pro-Bush puff book but you can see what Dr. Frank is talking about all through the book. JBOC

A new book by a prominent Washington psychoanalyst says President George W. Bush is a 'paranoid meglomaniac' as well as a sadist and 'untreated alcoholic.' The doctor's analysis appears to confirm earlier reports the President may be emotionally unstable.

Dr. Justin Frank, writing in Bush on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President, also says the President has a ''lifelong streak of sadism, ranging from childhood pranks (using firecrackers to explode frogs) to insulting journalists, gloating over state executions ... [and] pumping his fist gleefully before the bombing of Baghdad.'

Even worse, Dr. Frank concludes, the President's years of heavy drinking ''may have affected his brain function - and his decision to quit drinking without the help of a 12-step program [puts] him at far higher risk of relapse.'

Dr. Frank's revelations comes on the heels of last week's Capitol Hill Blue exclusive that revealed increasing concern by White House aides over Bush's emotional stability.

Aides, who spoke only on condition that their names be withheld, told stories of wide mood swings by the President who would go from quoting the Bible one minute to obscenity-filled outbursts the next.
Bush shows an inability to grieve - dating back to age 7, when his sister died. 'The family's reaction - no funeral and no mourning - set in motion his life-long pattern of turning away from pain [and hiding] behind antic behavior,' says Frank, who says Bush may suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
