Blackwell's Perseverative Press Releases Actually Symptom of Rare Psychological Disorder
Two new emails just arrived: one from Merriam-Webster and the other from Ken Blackwell.

The MW email informed me that the word of the day is:

perseverate \per-SEV-uh-rayt\ verb
1 : to repeat or recur persistently
2 : to go back over previously covered ground

It also went on to provide an interesting history of the word- including:

In the early 1900s, psychologists adopted "perseveration" for the act of repeating a behavior over and over again.

And here I was thinking Ken was just an asshole for sending out nasty press releases over and over again...

It turns out he has a genuine pschological disorder- Perseveration- which causes him to send out crap like this every day:

"Michael Moore would be proud of Ted Strickland," LoParo added. "Even Hillary Clinton condemned John Kerry. Strickland just doesn't get it. He is an unabashed Washington D.C. liberal who doesn't understand Ohio values."
