New DSM V Diagnosis – “Blame Evasion Disorder”

This new diagnostic category may be introduced in the upcoming edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel – 5th Edition:  Blame Evasion Disorder.  Sufferers of this disorder tend to voice these precepts:

1.  Women practice and  are the cause of sexism.

2.  Minorities are racist and therefore promote racism.

3.  Washington, D.C., the territory conservatives owned from 2001 to 2009, is liberal.

4.  Poor people, undeserving of loans,  who possess very little ecomonic power, caused the housing market melt-down.

5. Gays and lesibians are out to destroy the concept of heterosexual marriage.

6. All Liberals are evil and racist.

People with this disorder tend to rant on and on at conservative blog locations.  Treatment for this very sad disorder is not yet available.  Psychosurgery options may need to be considered.

Thomas Frank helped do some of the leg-work on identifying this new condition.  Read more here.

    Iggy! I thought you were terrorizing trout!

    This is so true, I may use it in my next column. I’ve been working on a Thomas Frank piece. That oughta piss off the local taliban.

    Hey, if you all are coming through here, before or after the trout massacre, call me, ok? I’d love to see ya, even if it’s just for a Coke or something.

    • Poor Iggy, can’t catch a break here recently. Started out to the place he intended to slay trout in car with a $1,500 get it ready for the trip, looksee at being road worthy tune-up, and got to Garden City. In the email describing this, he didn’t sound real happy!

      • It was very disappointing to say the least. The wife’s VW Beetle is still in the shop. It doesn’t malfunction consistently which I don’t take as a good sign.
