Liberals So Stressed By Election That They Can’t Exercise Or Sleep

(San Fran Chronicle) There’s no shortage of their kind in the politically bluest parts of California. Liberals so freaked out about the prospect of President Obama losing his re-election bid that they can’t sleep at night. Can’t talk about anything else. Can’t stop parsing the latest polls.

For the past several weeks, the 60-year-old San Francisco resident has frequently bolted awake in the middle of the night, in “a panic attack,” she said. She darts for her computer and checks the latest polls. Some days she’s so distraught that she can’t exercise.

Every morning, she gets e-mails from friends who’ve been just as sleepless. Most are so tense, they can croak out only a few words. “Very anxious.” “Worried.”

It’s a good time to be a mental health professional, especially if Obama loses. But, um, er, after Bush won re-election in 2004, there were quite a few mental health professionals who suffered PEST (post election stress syndrome) themselves. Will we get another round of liberals unable to get out of bed and go to work (or unable to spend lots of time looking for and applying for jobs in this pitiful Obameconomy)?

Anyhow, these same San Fran liberals were freaking out after the first debate, and it just got worse for them

Then Obama started dropping in the polls.

“Oh my God,” Ikels said. “I didn’t really start paying serious attention to the race until then. All the Republicans were tearing each other up during the primaries and they were all looking insane, so I thought (Obama) would be all right.”

I suspect this is an attitude common throughout Liberal World. And certainly Republicans are, as MKH points out, are “not immune to worry over the election or the fate of the country”, but I’m not losing sleep or too stressed to hit the gym every day I can. And, if I wake up and Obama is the winner, I won’t mope around for weeks. I’ll just get right back to work attempting to stop his far left agenda, as will most Republicans. Liberals take politics entirely too personally.
