Fueled by Resentment

Lots of people are fueled by resentment. I suspect it’s the natural response to having been abused. People are resentful and, because they can’t take revenge without further injuring themselves, they take it out on someone else. So, they voted for Obama and then they voted for the dude from New Jersey.

Non-sequitur syndrome

There, I’ve invented a new condition for which there seems to be no cure. That’s because the non-sequitur, like third-party support, is the result of a missing cognitive link. Things don’t follow and people get side-tracked because some brains are simply unable to compute reality.

Which suggests that the non-sequitur and triangulation are signals of a common cognitive deficit.
