Dr. Hadar comments on Zhirinovsky, Condi

Dr. Leon Hadar at Global Paradigms posts a very entertaining little piece worth reading. He takes a look at Vladimir Zhirinovsky's remarks about our Secretary of State (a la Pravda on line) and a retrospective psychoanalysis of Saddam Hussein by Dr. Jerrold Post (who for years was spending his time and your tax money preparing "profiles" of foreign leaders for the CIA and other government agencies) as profiled in a Guardian snapshot ('Saddam, tell me about your mum').

He quotes enough from both pieces to do each of them justice. But you can tell that he receives each of them with at least a grain or two of salt. This guy is a great commentator. Snips...

Zhirinovsky on Rice:
Condoleezza Rice needs a company of soldiers. She needs to be taken to barracks where she would be satisfied. On the other hand, she can hardly be satisfied because of her age. This is a complex. She needs to return to her university and teach students there. She could also deal with psychological analysis. The true reason of Ms. Rice's attack against Russia is very simple. Condoleezza Rice is a very cruel, offended woman who lacks men's attention. Releasing such stupid remarks gives her the feeling of being fulfilled. This is the only way for her to attract men's attention.

Hadar on Zhirinovsky:
I'm not a fan of Condoleeza Rice and have criticized her performance on the world stage. But that crazy Russian politician (and ex-presidential candidate) is taking it too far....What a jerk! But he does sound more intelligent that Dr. Phil...

Dr. Jerrold Post on Saddam:
"It all goes back to his mother's womb," Post declares with some professional satisfaction. "During the mother's pregnancy with Saddam Hussein, his father died, and another son died when he was only 12 years old. She both tried to commit suicide and to have an abortion." As the story goes, Saddam's mother, Subha, was prevented from killing herself and her unborn child by a compassionate family of Iraqi Jews. That family is now reported to be living in Israel, where it may think itself the tool of some huge cosmic joke. In any case, it does not seek publicity for its act of kindness.

Time permitting, check out a couple more of Dr. Hadar's piquant post pickles. I like how this man writes...
"Democraticialis, it's for my man whenever he wants it."
And on a more serious note, Christians Are Leaving the Middle East.
