Clinton Losing Anger Syndrome

Clinton Losing Anger Syndrome (CLAS) is a terribly sad affliction: it grows out of the tendency of perfectly honorable supporters of Hillary Clinton to allow their fury over Obama’s likely nomination to cause them to blather silly things.

Case in point: I noticed that this pro-Clinton site linked to my recent post objecting to Hillary’s stated intention to obliterate Iran if it used a nuclear weapon against Israel (a stupid scenario, in any case, given that it’s unlikely that Iran’s leaders are suicidal and Israel has its own nukes). I noted in the post that the word obliterate, by its definition, would seem to imply wiping out Iran’s entire civilian population, which one might regard as being a bit over the top in a crimes against humanity sort of way.

To the blogger in question this apparently proves that I am a “pacificist dhimmis.”

So let’s add this up: one expresses concern over the irresponsible use of language that might suggest an intention to potentially eradicate millions of innocent people, and ipso facto you become a pacifist living under Islamic law (see definition of dhimmis).

The scourge of Clinton Losing Anger Syndrome. It’s tragic, really.

Update: The blogger in question has now posted an update in which he denies being pro-Clinton. If I understand his point correctly, he considers himself to fall more into the curmudgeon camp, unhappy with all the options. I am happy to take him (or her) at his (or her) word.

    Uh, they’re also infecting BuzzFlash, Steve - do you see the crap PM Carpenter has to put up w/from the Clinton Apologists every DAY?

    I don’t think these people ARE “honorable”, myself - I think they’re a bunch of DLC-sucking, Lieberman-luvvin’ closet bigoted Rethug Lite “centrists” who want Four More Years of the Same, which is EXACTLY what Hillary promises them!
