Evidence for the Insanity Defense

Click the graphic, watch the video—it's only 24 seconds long, but will tell you more than you might learn from a 300 page book or a year's worth of blogs. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the leader of the free world, sunk to such a depth of psychosis as would warrant an immediate committment order from the most "liberal" of psychiatrists. Technical terms for what we are seeing demonstrated here include word salad, derealization, perseveration, and flight of ideas. They are all found in persons afflicted with any of a range of psychotic diseases.

We now have a medical as well as a whole array of legal reasons to demand that this President be impeached, and that he and his cronies be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. They can always plead innocent-by-reason-of-insanity. And I wouldn't argue with that defense, as long as it puts them where they belong—out of Washington and into a competent psychiatric facility.
