     - No, no, darling. I believe you misunderstand.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 06:41 PM   #42 
        - On the contrary. The reason "it" came up is because "it" is accurate.  ErnestoG   Feb-23-08 07:36 PM   #102

                 - I think you are becomng unhinged about the word unhinged.  tabatha   Feb-23-08 07:03 PM   #64 
                    - Maybe it was used a lot because somebody told people to use it a lot.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 07:04 PM   #66 
                       - dream away - i think you are delusional in your fact-less charges  tabatha   Feb-23-08 07:06 PM   #70

  - My bad. I'll switch to "crazy-ass wack-job"  jgraz   Feb-23-08 06:33 PM   #33 
  - HA! I'll go with either.  ErnestoG   Feb-23-08 06:35 PM   #37 
  - But, as you may know, it's much more effective if the SAME word is used over and over.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 06:44 PM   #47 
     - It's almost like they xeroxed it  jgraz   Feb-23-08 07:21 PM   #87 
     - LOL! It is, isn't it?  yardwork   Feb-23-08 07:24 PM   #93 
     - Like "Obama cult", I see.  ErnestoG   Feb-23-08 07:37 PM   #103 
        - Yes, exactly like that, now that you mention it. Always used against Democrats.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 07:39 PM   #108 
  - Will all your little friends start using those terms at the same time?  yardwork   Feb-23-08 06:43 PM   #44 
     - That's it! Why it's keyboard vernacular telepathy!  BleedingHeartPatriot   Feb-23-08 07:51 PM   #114

  - the Unhinged one using dead Iraqi bodies to diss Clinton is not locked.!!  rodeodance   Feb-23-08 06:36 PM   #40 
  - Caveat: The RW word of the day only applies  NCevilDUer   Feb-23-08 06:43 PM   #45 
  - Don't forget "hysterical" and "wifey" nt  Bluebear   Feb-23-08 06:44 PM   #46 
  - I think that those might have been individual deviations.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 06:45 PM   #48 
     - I believe you're right. Hysterical has been used, and wifey was the word planned for 2/27  Bluebear   Feb-23-08 06:46 PM   #51 
  - unhinged.  loveangelc   Feb-23-08 06:47 PM   #52 
  - Tsk tsk. You're behind. Unhinged has been cancelled.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 06:48 PM   #55 
  - It's an odd word. Makes me think roid-rage, not so much politics. (nt)  Umbram   Feb-23-08 06:51 PM   #57 
  - Maybe someone on roids thought it up.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 06:52 PM   #58 
  - Unhinged is sometimes used to describe Bush. nt  Quixote1818   Feb-23-08 06:53 PM   #59 
  - Good work! You've now connected Hillary to Bush in one word.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 07:05 PM   #69 
  - It's a word that fits the moment as it fits many moments for different people  Quixote1818   Feb-23-08 07:39 PM   #109 
     - Ah! It's nothing more than the word of the moment. Like flip flop!  yardwork   Feb-23-08 07:41 PM   #110 
        - Bush has lots of "words for the moment" For example  Quixote1818   Feb-23-08 07:46 PM   #112 
  - Exactly. It is a gender blind term, no matter what the frantic shrieks to the opposite proclaim.  ErnestoG   Feb-23-08 07:38 PM   #105 
  - A good test of unhinged is to play the video and then read the responses.  rug   Feb-23-08 07:02 PM   #63 
  - maybe we should all start using unplugged  tabatha   Feb-23-08 07:05 PM   #68

     - If it makes you feel any better  yourguide   Feb-23-08 07:30 PM   #97 
  - It's a perfectly good word... even Michelle Malikin uses it  Kurt_and_Hunter   Feb-23-08 07:17 PM   #81 
  - Oh verrrrrrry interesting.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 07:18 PM   #83 
  - It looks like a typical, organized campaign (from Obama or republicans, I can't tell)  bigtree   Feb-23-08 07:23 PM   #90 
  - I believe it's the Republicans. I don't think Obama would stoop so low.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 07:26 PM   #94 
  - Pssst...Operation Unhinged is now officially over.  greguganus   Feb-23-08 07:35 PM   #101

     - You should be! You're totally on the Greatest!  BleedingHeartPatriot   Feb-23-08 08:14 PM   #124 
        - I don't know how it happened. My threads always sink like stones.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 08:16 PM   #127 
  - Anybody using the word "unhinged" in a post this evening is suspect.  workinclasszero   Feb-23-08 08:14 PM   #123 
     - No, but I could try to turn you into a newt, if you like.  yardwork   Feb-23-08 08:15 PM   #126
