Steve Lonegan, the Republican candidate who lost handily to Cory Booker last night, didn’t take his defeat very well. Who woulda’ thunk it? His wife is seen trying to console him and he brushes away her hand as if it’s cootie dandruff.
Dude, you should have been pushing Sarah Palin away so that you’d get at least a couple more votes in.
This has been circulating on the Internet. That’s another thing Republicans never seem to understand. When you’re in front of a camera, we actually see you. Because, you know, there’s a camera right there.
Why do women vote Republican?
Dr. Anomaly says:
Diagnosis: Stockholm Syndrome.
Stockholm syndrome refers to a group of psychological symptoms that occur in some persons in a captive or hostage situation. It has received considerable media publicity in recent years because it has been used to explain the behavior of such well-known kidnapping victims as Patty Hearst (1974) and Elizabeth Smart (2002). The term takes its name from a bank robbery in Stockholm, Sweden, in August 1973. The robber took four employees of the bank (three women and one man) into the vault with him and kept them hostage for 131 hours. After the employees were finally released, they appeared to have formed a paradoxical emotional bond with their captor; they told reporters that they saw the police as their enemy rather than the bank robber, and that they had positive feelings toward the criminal. The syndrome was first named by Nils Bejerot (1921–1988), a medical professor who specialized in addiction research and served as a psychiatric consultant to the Swedish police during the standoff at the bank. Stockholm syndrome is also known as Survival Identification Syndrome.
The problem can be short lived if the patient votes Democrat.
