Helen Thomas Clinically Insane?
The newspaper HILL first reported the startling claim on Thursday.Does she think this stand is going to cause nationwide demonstrations for Cheney not to run? What next - is she going to do a national tour a la Michael Moore and give away bras? Have these people been drinking too much Perrier or spending too much time in hot tubs? I'm beginning to believe that there really is something in the water:
"The day Dick Cheney is going to run for president, I'll kill myself," she told the HILL. "All we need is one more liar."
A new analysis based on animal studies suggests that showering in manganese-contaminated water for a decade or more could have permanent effects on the nervous system. The damage may occur even at levels of manganese considered safe by the Environmental Protection Agency, according to researchers from Wake Forest University School of Medicine....There must be some explanation. Brain damage is as good as any. See Tran Sient's Watch for another demonstration of odd, odd thinking.
The study is the first to show the potential for permanent brain damage from breathing vaporized manganese during a shower. It was conducted by reviewing the medical literature and calculating, based on animal studies, the amount of manganese people would absorb by showering 10 minutes a day.
He is sarcastic, but that's a little bit much even for him.
A vast Rethuglican conspiracy to make red-staters even more stupid, thus perpetuating their RepubliKKKan reign?
A conspiracy of Big Vitamin corporate greed-mongers to torture journalists?
You be the judge.
