From CBS News, November, 2 2015:
Man with rare disorder can't recognize his own reflectionA man who thought he saw a "stranger" in the bathroom mirror, when he was actually looking at his own reflection, turned out to have a rare neurological condition, a new case report finds.The 78-year-old man in France, identified in the report as Mr. B, noticed a stranger in his house. Mr. B said that the stranger looked just like him, but stayed in the bathroom mirror, according to the authors of the report published online Aug. 25 in the journal Neurocase....After a checkup, doctors diagnosed Mr. B with a condition called atypical Capgras syndrome.

It has smothered every honest attempt at healing what is broken in our culture, and provided the Right with a permanent alibi for every atrocity they commit...
Well now that we have come to the "reaping the whirlwind" portion of our show, take a good look at who cannot recognize his own reflection when it bleats "But both sides!" right back at him.
