I do hope the chap is OK. He always appeared a little too tightly wrapped for me.

Mental ward is not a very PC term.

Loony bin would be more precise though when speaking about Brock.

I'm sorry folks. Some of the comments that come out at times like this does not reflect well on Free Republic.

Finally, someone has recognized this guy's problem.

Wouldn't it be nice if he could be joined by Carville and Begala in a well-padded ward?

Actually, it may show the "man" has a conscience. After telling all those lies and getting busted for it, a tsumani of guilt has overcome his psyche.

We'll find out when he makes a public statement...

After reading the account from some of his ol' college buddies and the Hitchens piece on it, a visit to the Ha Ha Hilton seems just about right for Brock...

I dislike David Brock as much as the next guy, but Drudge seems to be enjoying this a bit too much, considering the big bold headline.

I would prefer a headline of Brock's book doesn't sell, or nobody listens to him. Maybe I am not as cynical as I used to be, but a guy flipping out, and having a mental break down isn't something I am so glib and gleeful about.

"committed to mental ward"
This is what happens when you believe your own lies, but no one else does, when even the interviewers on CNN tell you that your work is mean-spirited and full of lies.

I wonder if this is related to the recent East Bay newspaper story that analyzed portions of his book and proved that he is/was a FRAUD?

So does this mean that we was in the Nut House earlier or does that mean he is currently swinging the Butterfly Net at the Funny Farm?

Well, you see, with the media smearing the President as squelching information on the 9/11 terror/war attack, it's a little nice to see something bad happen to the other side.

What is the German term for it? Schadenfreude?

"Still, I wanted to take an extra shower after trudging through this dismally written, pick-nose, spiteful and furtive little book. It glitters with malice and the more cowardly kind of "disclosure"; it's a dank, filthy tissue turned inside out."

The end result of what happens to a "conservative" who tries to re-embrace Liberalism. Kind of reminds me of that scene in the Arnold Schwartznegger movie "The Running Man" where that prisoner wearing the internment collar runs outside of the designated area for prisoners.... and his head explodes. Hah hah hah hah haaaaa.
