Scott McClellan may not be done testifying before Congress, according to House Democrats with oversight authority. At least one Democratic subcommittee chairman is already preparing to have the former White House press secretary return to the Hill for more testimony about what he saw during his tenure in the Bush White House. Although the political correctness attack dogs went after Scott, Scott may be sending them running with their tails between their legs.
If you consider the fact that this is an election year and that the democrats may have caught the scent of republican blood, the fact that Scott McClellan endures after being attacked helps to prove that obsessive political correctness is a psychiatric disorder. There was no need for the attacks on Scott’s personal character in retaliation for his book “What Happened”, however it was the politically correct thing to do because the book may or did hurt someone’s feelings with reality. To hurt someone’s feeling with the truth is now considered politically incorrect and the apparent punishment is attack on the presenter.
Certainly there is political gain to be achieved by this, but more important that important facts come to light as to why the USA is fighting two wars. However that is not the topic of this post.
The topic is to point out that obsessive political correctness is a psychiatric disorder and Scott McClellan will just be one of the brave people to offer themselves to prove it. How this saga unfolds over the next several weeks will be watched and pointing out the clear signs tied to psychiatric disorders and that is it OK to not be politically correct.
Some of the signs include a ridged set of parameters that must be met (words that cant be used), and that clearly fits into the definition of Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder.
People with an Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder are so preoccupied with orderliness, perfection and control that they are unable to be flexible or open. As a result, while they may be reliable, dependable, orderly and methodical, they may also be unable to cope with changed circumstances.
They are so preoccupied with details, rules, lists and order that the point of an activity is often lost and goes unfinished. They will sacrifice leisure time, vacations and friendships to work, and are inflexible about moral and ethical issues. They are reluctant to delegate tasks to others and view money as something to be hoarded for future catastrophes.
Clearly people don’t see that obsessive political correctness is a form of mental illness, and this is one of the reasons it is getting so out of control. Once people recognize that it is a form of mental illness, then certainly they will have the incentive to stop as they certainly do not want to be seen as mentally ill. Spread the word!
