His tongue in cheek shot at this being a 'medical condition' and siting various examples is thoroughly entertaining.
We'd all like to think we're not infected, but as you read on one starts to wonder, "I do seem to have that symptom, am I ill with Democratosis, or Democratitus?"
Some may be so infected they can do nothing but spread their contagious opinions.
Can these conditions be covered under Medicare?
This book is very timely and each chapter has surprises. I highly recommend it, especially if you follow politics - and all good citizens should!
Is this what William F. Buckley envisioned? Even the "Dittohead" Leader, Rush Limbaugh, rarely repeats a phrase.
Is this disease borne of laziness? Why read a book or a Time magazine when a TV or Radio host can "think" for you? I recall Limbaugh saying, paraphrasing, "now just turn off our brains and let me think for you". He sounded half-serious! Hundreds of millions of bucks later, Rush, that inspired College dropout, is the new Voice of America! Used to be Elvis Presley..now we have an awkward hybrid (we needed to be cured of the overuse of *that* word) - a modicum of knowledge with alot of charisma, alot of advance info. from the RNC...and a great Screener.
Limbaugh's success in discovering what Nixon discovered, "the silent Maority" [lookin' for a voice], begat many imitators. And as unemployment rose and the baby boomers aged, there was more time to invest in Rush's daily report of Liberals just being Liberals. Listen at home; listen at poolside; listen in the car on the way to the liquor store.
Then the Liberals themselves gave it a try - were successful on TV but not on radio. But none of that matters when one can confidently shout down the air-conditioner repairperson as he/she tries to fix the unit.
Let's not exclude all those left of center magazines purporting to be neutral and offering their own *hard copy* party (no pun) favors.
This book offers a structured program for self-healing. First, admit that slogans are fun, especailly when used defensively.
I think some cartoons might have helped to get the message across; maybe more asterisks. But if you catch yourself repeating the phrase your favorite cable TV Host used last night..and realize you could come up with something better..then grab this book!
