I think I am suffering from Pollimia
After watching the Sunday morning news shows for years...
I have a serious problem. Pollimia is nothing to laugh about.
For those of you who are not aware of Pollimia, it is in the same family of disease as Bulimia.
Bulimia nervosa is characterized by recurrent and frequent episodes of eating unusually large amounts of food (e.g., binge-eating), and feeling a lack of control over eating. This binge-eating is followed by a type of behavior that compensates for the binge, such as purging (e.g., vomiting, excessive use of laxatives or diuretics), fasting and/or excessive exercise.
Pollimia is characterized by recurrent and frequent episodes of watching unusually large numbers of politicians talking (e.g., shoveling shit), and feeling a lack of control over turning off the TV. This binge-watching is followed by a type of behavior that compensates for the binge, such as purging (e.g., vomiting, excessive use of curse words), and/or excessive exercise (beating ones’ head against the wall).
For years I have known that all politicians regardless of party quickly forget how to tell the truth once they are elected. Any time that they are interviewed they never answer the question asked. When pressed they employ a time-tested strategy – they lie. I’m convinced that by the time a politician has been in office for five years they have totally lost the ability to give people the straight story.
By the time they have been in office for five years they have a new set of moral values and answer to a new higher power – their ego.
I’m sick. Even though I know there is no good reason to waste my time each Sunday morning listening to the crap the politicians are telling us and that nothing good will come from this, I am still in front of that TV every Sunday morning.
Yes – I am definitely suffering from Pollimia.
