Amy Bishop and George W. Bush are both sociopaths. Their upbringing have a lot in common. Parents put these two people down constantly, comparing them with a 'better' sibling. They both crave parental attention and approval. George W. Bush got his 'attention' by involving us in two senseless wars; Amy Bishop did likewise by killing her brother, her numerous priors of 'flying off the cuff' and finally killing those academicians.
Her craving for parental attention - and their unconditional love ("I'll love you, Amy, regardless of what you achieve." triggered all of these events.

What I am musing about: What if she had gotten tenure?
She evidently would not have gone off then, but being a ticking bomb, what would push her over the edge after that?
Being as driven as she was in career, it floors me that she took the time to have 4 children. A real paradox.
More importantly: How many others are there like her, set to blow?

Huh? If you're saying I am obsessed with Obama (or any other politician), you haven't read my posts.

you didn't read the first post in this thread? Seems to me you are quite willing to give Bush haters a pass. But quick to blast others. You are right I don't waste my time looking at libtarded drivel
The first post bored me. I chat on the political threads sometimes, but I'm not that political and don't want to discuss politics all day.
(I apologize to whomever wrote the first post.. usually if I'm bored, I just don't say anything at all, like Thumper on "Bambi")
