DURST: Screw Amnesia
You got to feel bad for the modern scientist desperately trying to compete for press in a world tackier than a leopard skin lab coat with rubber frogs feet as buttons. The Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry has identified a condition it calls recurrent coital amnesia where sudden and dramatic memory loss occurs after sexual intercourse including the identity of the partner. Which might explain why Congress ignores us like a deflated Montana beach ball in December after gaining office. No, really, go with me on this. The London based medical journal recounts the story of a man who frequently suffered bouts of amnesia after sex, who would have no memory of intercourse and only the haziest recollection of foreplay. Think election and campaigning here. He was aware he was having mental difficulties and repeatedly asked questions such as "What are we doing?" and "What year is it?" Does that or does that not sound like Congress? Dick Gephardt and/ or Strom Thurmond in particular. You throw in a "Is Fire Good?" and you can include Alfonse D'Amato. The man apparently underwent cardiovascular and neurological tests and appeared entirely normal, although he did show unusual brain wave patterns. I'm telling you, it's Congress to the second "S". Appeared normal? Unusual brain waves? No, you're right. The existence of brain waves throws the analogy entirely out of whack. My mistake. Go back to your lives. Will Durst apologizes for wasting your time. On a daily basis.
