Stellaaaaaah! Stellaaaaaah!

Charlie Pierce revists our gal Stellaaaaah! Tremblay, after we learned that in addition to all of her other skills, Stellaaaaaah! is also a diagnostician.  In the world according to Stella, Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the Boston Marathon bombing is suspect because he wasn't in shock or in pain. She could tell. Just by looking at the pictures. The woman is gifted!

This is eerily reminiscent of the diagnostic skills displayed by Tennesseee's answer to Dr. Mengele, Bill Frist, when he determined that Terri Schiavo was NOT in a persistent vegetative state, and was responding to visual stimuli. (The autopsy later proved that her brain had atrophied to half the normal brain size, the damage was irreversible, and that she was BLIND.)

Charlie sez:
So, based on the forensic abilities of Stella Tremblay, who appears to be the bright, aware one in her family, we have moved from the government's setting off its own bombs to the government's inventing its own traumatic-amputee cyborgs to lie on the sidewalk. I think it's time for someone to sneak into Stella's house late at night and steal all her radios.

A big h/t to Tuck @miscellany blue.

I'd love to see constant repeats of the character Elaine on the show "Seinfeld" doing her "Stella" renditions along with dialogue explaining that Tremblay would be a sick joke but for the fact that her comments make her appear extremely mentally sick and disturbed. All these individuals have evidently been reincarnated and are acting out their former lives of being in charge of Nazi prisoner of war camps. And that's the kindest thing that can be said of their comments and thinking.
