U.S. News Digital Weekly;3/18/2011, Vol. 3 Issue 11, p10
The author shares his worries that the U.S. Republican Party is cracking up, or is literally going crazy. He explains the phrase "Bush Derangement Syndrome" coined by conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer in 2003 to describe the irrational reactions the 43rd president aroused in critics. He also notes the results of polls which revealed that many Republicans believe that U.S. President Barack Obama was probably or definitely born abroad.
