1) removal of the frontal lobe of the brain, causing the "patient" to lose all capacity
for higher thought, reason, etc. while still technically not considered a "vegetable".
2) a process that had been deemed unethical
and barbaric, but has evidently been stealthily carried
out on a truly massive scale, as shown by tell-tale
symptoms of lobotomization such
"Calvin pissing" stickers, voting
Republican, obsessive interest in NASCAR, membership
in the NRA (as opposed to responsible hunting, fishing, and conservation groups), calling it "moral values" to tell lies in order to start
unnecessary wars that kill or maim tens of thousands of people
as well as to lie, cheat, and embezzle in a manner befitting of Enron, Halliburton, Arbusto Energy, or Tyco, to destroy God's Creations with irresponsible & reckless abandon, especially while simultaneously ignoring all principles
of science and all available facts in order to promote
a theocratic worldview in the guise of "intelligent design" (an indoctrination ironically similar
to the Islamic fundamentalist wackos these same so-called Christians
purport to be opposed to), promote
the hatred of and discrimination against the economically disenfranchised
or otherwise most
vulnerable members of a society, particularly if it allows titillating discussion of sexual acts
these same repressed prudes
secretly fetishize under the flimsy pretense of "taking a moral stand".
That Dubya's a walking, talking lobotomy.
