    Oh, if only they had the health coverage to afford it...

    Why don't they just top themselves? Prozac is expensive.

    If it was anything of this nature, then it's more than likey the staffer was talking about the Bush camp. It's more likely that Bushies are hearing complaints from their own kind (their co-workers) than it is that they're hearing complaints from people far-removed, their opponents.

    Sounds like a non-story. It's still amusing though.

    Dissidence will force us to re-educate you.

    There is a new healthcare proposal from our esteemed and duly elected Emperor: He has decreed, in his gracious wisdom that mood stabilizing compounds like Prozac to be presented as low cost health care to the working caste as a reward for their service to those of greater station.

    All praise the illustrious Emperor. Now eat your bread, cheer at the spectacle of our riteous war and take your prozac.

    I equate it to Mrs Kerry saying "shove it"

    Makes a great buzz story... but people will forget (or at least stop caring) it happened fairly quickly. And considering this was a campaign worker, in other words, nobody important, it will be cared about even less.

    Good citizen, I see that you are taking your allotment of Prozac. Continued performance on this level may lead to increased priviledges.

    Just shows the attitude of the RNC to those that "haven't gotten theirs". Their attitudes make me sick....

    Doesn't seem that she is denying making the statement. So it is not as much of a non-story as one might think. It goes to the roots of narrow minded thinking, and bigotry that exists within the RNC IMO.

    sorry to be nit-picky, Stelliform, but you got "infer" and "imply" backwards...I agree with your position, though (at least as a valid possibility).

    And possibly dangerous, considering the track records of some of its fellow mood-altering drugs.

    Mostly it was unhelpful for what it was supposed to do. Celexa is a much better choice, ime.

    It doesn't alter moods, it stablilizes (or is suppose to) brain chemicals.

    IOW, make them work like they do for "normal" people who are defined as those who can actually get out of bed in the morning and go to work AND do the dishes when they get home for work. What a concept, huh?

    Not to cheapen the topic (too late)...but I gotta love the market-names for all these drugs...wellbutrin, prozac, celexa and so on...who makes these names? People on them?...
