The "Diagnosticators"

Presumably, the "examination" of Shrub by old Ayman al-Zawahri was of the video variety...sort of like how Bill Frist "examined" Terry Schiavo.

That said, and not to defend a nutjob like al-Zawahri, but damn if his diagnosis is a lot more accurate than the cat killer's:

Al-Qaida's No. 2 said President Bush was an alcoholic and a lying gambler who wagered on Iraq and lost, according to a new audiotape released Tuesday...

"Bush suffers from an addictive personality, and was an alcoholic. I don't know his present condition ... but the one who examines his personality finds that he is addicted to two other faults — lying and gambling," al-Zawahri said in the audiotape.

Bush, who is now 60, has acknowledged he had a problem with drinking but gave up alcohol when he was 40 years old.


[Terry Schiavo] "certainly seems to respond to visual stimuli."

(Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner Jon Thogmartin concluded that…her brain was about half of normal size when she died. …

Thogmartin says her brain was “profoundly atrophied” — and that the damage was “irreversable.” He also says, “The vision centers of her brain were dead” — meaning she was blind.)

Now, again, remember: being more accurate than Bill Frist does NOT mean you aren't a complete nutjob, okay... (um, that's for wingnut edification...not that they'd understand anyway).
