How does one know if they’ve been infected by the disease that is overly partisan politics?
Well, today’s events in Iraq provide a nice opportunity for self-diagnosis.
If your initial reaction to the news that Insurgent Leader Al-Zarqawi had been Killed in Iraq was either:
“Uh oh, that could be good for Bush especially with the midterm elections around the corner…”
“That oughta teach those left wing naysayers. We never would’ve got him if they were in power…”
Then you’ve got the disease.
Unfortunately, there is only one cure for this particular affliction: Critical thought.
So needless to say, the prognosis is not good.
