DeLauro's Fashion Catches Eye of HuffPost

The online news website called the Congresswoman's outfit "awesome."


U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-3rd District), who represents Durham and Middlefield voters, won praise Thursday from the Huffington Post for the style she brings to Washington, D.C.

The website made specific mention of DeLauro's fashion choice on Thursday as lawmakers returned to the Capitol for the 113th Congress.

Is there a psychiatrist reading this who could look at slide No. 1 at the Huffington Post link above and perhaps give us an armchair diagnosis? I’m thinking narcissistic personality disorder with elements of avoidant subtype. This diagnosis would explain her delusional belief that “abstract caring” allows her an elite seclusion and detachment behind her massive wealth. As long as she calls for “pay-your-fair-share” tax hikes, or for more deficit spending, or fake “green jobs”, or middle class tax hikes—disguised as federalized healthcare—or a temporary, taxpayer-funded “jobs bill”, or a need to fix an imaginary “gender wage inequity”, or to stop nonexistent “Big Oil subsidies”—thus oddly implying that we should pay more for gasoline & heating oil—then she can feel absolved from guilt over her isolated privilege and can enjoy it without lamentation. And if one has massive enough wealth not to worry about a few more taxes or fees, then a mind at peace is a pretty good deal. DeLauro's pathetic repetition of the same talking points for 22 years is an elite person’s psychological investment in enjoying guilt-free affluence, allowing her to disengage from both the private sector, where one either makes a profit or goes broke, and the grimy processes by which we live one more day. Thus DeLauro's “elite liberalism” has become her psychological condition—not a serious blueprint on how to solve real problems in Connecticut and in our nation.

If you hate her so much, JUST LEAVE. Or better yet, if you think you can do a better job, run against her. Good luck. Nobody's beaten her in an election for the past 22 years.
