There is a diary on the rec list that asks whether or not Mitt Romney has Alzheimer's Disease. No evidence whatsoever, just "asking questions" that Glenn Beck and Bill Frist would be proud of.

I am not an expert in Alzheimer's. I DO have Asperger's Syndrome, as I've diaried here in another diary not so coincidentally about everybody's least favorite serial liar. Like the comments about Asperger's and autism I can't help but think that people with loved ones with Alzheimer's should be offended.

There is another explanation.

Mitt Romney is a completely sucky human being. He lies so often and about everything whether trivial or huge and cannot believe the hubris of the peasants who question him.

I am a liberal. As such, the idea of a person like this existing, much less being the second choice for President of the United States, is reprehensible to me. So even I am sorely tempted to come up with a plausible explanation that will excuse Romney's behavior and explain it to someone who can't even comprehend the kind of evil that exists in this man. I can't understand a person like this. So I sometimes feel like I need to explain it just so I can sleep at night.

As AnnieJo noted in the comments in the Alzheimers diary Aspies/autistics tend to be scrupulously honest, often to their own detriment (I totally suck at little white lies intended to flatter people in social settings) so I doubt it's that. And as someone who has lived in Massachusetts all my life I can tell you this behavior is quite typical of Mitt so unless he has had early onset Alzheimer's since 1994 and nobody noticed that's out too.

Saying Romney has Alzheimer's or autism isn't just offensive to those and those with loved ones who suffer from them. Whether you intend to or not it also is a way of excusing his behavior.

Occam's Razor leads me to believe that Mitt Romney is simply horrible and is either too egomaniacal to see the damage he is doing to the country or too slimy to care. He sucks. He sucks harder than an automatic sucking machine. He sucks more than Galactus The Planet Eater fellating the black hole at the center of the universe. He's a sucky person. End of story.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
