Herr Amos: Did you go to a shrink or did you heal your self with Dianetics?

3 December 2004
Suffering the Democrat blues

"Within days, therapists and psychiatrists confirmed that in many areas of the country - in both red and blue states - there had been a surge in patients suffering from stress and depression.

Newspapers, radio stations and TV channels inundated us with reports of Kerry supporters rushing to the couch exhibiting signs of 'hopelessness' and 'helplessness'. As Susan Brooks, a clinical social worker in Wisconsin, explained: 'Patients who I've had for a long time have come in absolutely devastated over the fact that the election went the way it did. They were just terribly distraught and continue to be terribly distraught.'

Many long-time therapists say they have never seen anything like it, and it wasn't long before the disorder got a name. Kerry supporters are apparently suffering from Post-Election Selection Trauma - or PEST, an acronym coined by the Florida-based American Health Association, a charitable group that is now offering free counselling to PEST sufferers until the end of 2004."
