Posted on 11/16/2004 3:03:11 PM PST by steenkeenbadges
Mental health officials in South Florida blasted Rush Limbaugh on Monday, saying the conservative talk show hosts offer of free therapy for traumatized John Kerry voters has made a mockery of a valid psychological problem. Rush Limbaugh has a way of back-handedly slamming people, said Sheila Cooperman, a licensed clinician with the American Health Association (AHA) who listened Friday as Limbaugh offered to personally treat her patients. Hes trying to ridicule the emotional state this presidential election produced in many of us here in Palm Beach County. Who is he to offer therapy?

Calling Mo Dowd
My parents live in Boca, aka Scarsdale (NY) South. I'll have to ask my mother (who's a family therapist) if she's had any issues with the countless blue people in the Blue city of Boca Raton.
I'd have so much fun, I'd probably lose my license for professional abuse.
They probably need therapy.
I just have to laugh at this. Hard. Then perhaps he might cure them? Rather than listen to their narcissistic rants for as long as the money doesn't run out? What a hoot! Bring back Bob Newhart!
I am reminded of a cartoon which makes the rounds in psychotheraputic circles: the caption is "Brief Psychotherapy"; the analyst slaps the client saying "Get over it!"
I think all the PESTilential demonRATs could use a course of Beck's Rational Emotive Therapy (not Glenn): a technique in which the therapist harangues the client with facts to discard irrational beliefs which are the basis of his or her misery.
People who don't listen to Rush may miss the sarcasm in his comments, especially if they appear in print.
That's because Rush speaks the truth, which always sets one free (provided they're willing to receive it). The psychobabblers have a vested interest in keeping clients "sick" and returning for $200 an hour sessions.
From someone who lives in the heart of demrat country - Palm Beach County - this is so assinine. Even the Mayor of Boca Raton, who is, thankfully, a Republican, said that he is not surprised about this junk psychology taking off in an area where people think mothing of spending thousands on plastic surgery and golf lessons.
I guess I should be thankful I'm a poor, working stiff and not a pampered rich b*tch.
Why do we need Rush when we have people like Sheila Cooperman that ae so self-unaware that they can unintentionally and very funnily mock themselves?
And this woman is a THERAPIST? Good grief!
Over-association with a client is generally considered a reason to refer a patient elsewhere is it not?
Boca Raton = Rat's Mouth! A Blue City.
No wonder Rush is having so much fun with this!
You just can't make this stuff up, folks. Maybe we could get them to define liberalism as a disorder in the next DSM...
Is there even an AHA? Nothing came up in my searches. There are similarly named associations, but none exactly. Maybe my search engines are running out of power?
Rush had a caller today that made a good point.
Liberals, he asserted, don't know how to lose.
It's like the Little League where they don't keep score. Or the Dodge ball thing where you couldn't hit the other guy with the ball. Or not correcting children's papers with red ink. Purple is more soothing whereas red is associated with losing.
This election lays such truth to that. Now I hear they're recounting in Ohio.
There is no such thing as a 'win' in their world. Their thinking is that we must 'negotiate' this win to an end acceptable to both of us.
I'm serious. That's how they think.
Speaking of Mo....I hated to do it to the woman, but I cut a swath through her verbiage in my last Blog that I simply must, with all due modesty, share it with you.
of course it is - you liberal POS couldn't continually be poor little victims if you didn't have a continual stream of valid psychological problems - besides the genetic one you were born with.
Hes trying to ridicule the emotional state this presidential election produced in many of us here in Palm Beach County. Who is he to offer therapy?
uh, excuse me dr. b*tch, who are you to offer therapy? From your quote, this same emotional state has somehow infected your brain also since you most certainly must be included in "us". Typical of the libs, the sickos wanting to treat the sickos, the blind leading the blind, the victims enabling other victims. I would love to see a survey on the percentage of liberals that seek "professional help" vs. conservatives - I would bet 4 to 1 minimum.
