Commentary: Palin, Beck suffer from 'Obama Dementia'

In 2003, Charles Krauthammer, a columnist and psychiatrist, coined a new term. Noting what he said was "the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency -- nay -- the very existence of George W. Bush," Krauthammer identified a previously unknown malady he called Bush Derangement Syndrome. No shrink am I, but it seems obvious to this untrained eye that B.D.S. has lately been supplanted by a new disorder. Call it Obama Dementia.
