Righteous Indignation Contest
by Nicholas Beaudrot of Electoral Math
Which is better, The Big Dog, smoldering and subdued?
Or Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy, going absolutely ape?
Clinton's performance, by the way, has to be the best public display of just how pissed off Democrats are about that m2#(*!*#&!(ing c#!*(##!@er Saxby Chambliss slandering Max Cleland. I really can't even write the Senator's name without getting very close to erupting into a string of expletives.

Perhaps you should refer to him as S@xb! Ch@mbli$$ from now on. To streamline things.

Anyone who has dealt with a parent in cognitive decline will recognize this seething, out of control anger displayed in public. Bill Clinton has always been rather angry, as people are who have had to swallow a lot of injustice in their childhoods. But when he was in full possession of his high intelligence, he controlled the public display of anger. He is now losing this inhibition -- and the loss of this inhibition is a cardinal sign of mental deterioration. A viewing of his interview with Chris Wallace a while ago, also shows this. This is not how he talked as president -- and it's wholly inappropriate to the dignity of an ex-president. He is just not what he was back then. She should keep him way behind the scenes.

mjb ... that suggestion has a good deal of merit. However, it doesn't have quite the punch as m*********ing c*******er.
Someone needs to point out to klein's normal nut that the world has changed an awful lot since 1996.

"and the loss of this inhibition is a cardinal sign of mental deterioration."
Or it is a sign of not having to run for office anymore and being willing to call out some of these hypocritical bastards for feigning outrage at a tactic they are more than willing to use when it suits them.

"not having to run for office" -- he is running for office. Remember two for one? You loved it then and you're eating it up now. If you run this video in slow motion and stop at some of the frames, you will see someone out of control. How am I sounding like a person from the 60's -- as opposed to someone who, in that profound formulation, crossed the bridge to the 21st century?

The coach ranting about how people who don't have children are bad people who can't possibly understand... kind of sucks.

klein's normal nut,
How about Bush's recent performance where he was so livid with Move On that he lost the ability to understand remedial English, to the point where he equated that organization's criticism of Petraeus with criticism of the very troops that originally coined the nickname "Betray Us"?

He doesn't seethe and fume at length the way Clinton does. Clinton's anger feeds on itself, and he gets himself wound up. It just spirals out of control, he reaches the point of literally hissing as words come out. No, but good try. There's no one currently in public life that I have noticed who has the anger control problem of Bill Clinton. But I'm sure you wish it were otherwise.
