If You Have Mental Illness, You Can't Apply!

Senator Mitch McConnell, a republican from Kentucky, is in the news this morning for being a "victim" of an unauthorized recording in his private strategy room. Mother Jones, a news outlet that features “investigative, political, and social justice reporting,” released audio tapes of Senator McConnell’s attack against Ashley Judd, a prospective challenger for his senate seat in the next Kentucky State election.
 
The senator’s plan was simple—expose Ashley Judd, a Hollywood actress, feminist and humanitarian, for being emotionally unbalanced and erratic. The tapes feature his staff talking about her admitted mental illness as a viable strategy for proving this point. The topic of discussion heard on the tapes extends from her 6-week stay in a hospital because of psychological issues in the 90’s to her religious beliefs.
 
Whatever plans Senator McConnell made have been foiled thanks to these tapes. While the senator, who has served in the U.S. Senate for the last 29 years, is concerned about who made the tapes, you have to wonder about the integrity of a man who believes that someone’s mental history is fair political game. Does Senator McConnell know that over 17 million Americans deal with depression every day? Does the senator know that women are twice as likely to suffer from depression as men, which makes his political tactics not only grimy, but sexist?
 
One of the goals of Psych37news.com is to decrease the stigma associated with mental illness and raise awareness for mental health issues. Senator McConnell’s plan is in direct conflict with those goals. Might I add that Psych37news.com shares these goals with some very important mental health organizations like the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), American Psychological Association (APA), Mental Health America (MHA), American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) and the American Psychiatric Association (APA). All of these organizations have thousands of members, thus some considerable political power.  
 
What makes Ashley Judd, a woman stable enough to star in 20 Hollywood films, several television shows and two Broadway shows, unfit to run against Senator McConnell? Is it the thousands of fans that she has throughout the state of Kentucky that may actually vote for her? Is it her down to earth quality that makes others relate to her?
 
I have to wonder if the Senator has ever considered that, with so many Americans struggling with mental illness (over 60 million), isn’t it highly possible that our Congress is made up of mentally-ill people? You can’t tell me that, out of the 535 elected officials (100 senators and 435 representatives), American citizens have managed to vote for the most psychologically-healthy people we could find.
 
From the senator’s poor, little, slanted view, he is the victim. However, in the psychology world, he is a scared bully who is grabbing at straws to save his political career. Even though Judd decided not to run, it looks like she stayed in the race just long enough to unveil the heart of McConnell.
 
I wonder if he has started a campaign to have segegrated water fountains at Capitol Hill..."For Mentally-Healthy Only."

Psychology IEverywhere!
