Is Palin suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder?

"During an appearance on Fox News' "Hannity" on Tuesday night, Sarah Palin shared her take on a criticism Vice President Joe Biden reportedly directed at the Tea Party earlier this week. According to Politico, Biden suggested that Tea Party-backed lawmakers "acted like terrorists" in contentious debate over raising the debt ceiling in a meeting with House Democrats. "If we were real domestic terrorists," Palin explained to host Sean Hannity, "President Obama would be wanting to pal around with us, wouldn't he? He didn't have a problem palling around with Bill Ayers back in the day when he kicked off his political career." — HUFFPO
Has anyone else noticed how infrequently Palin seems to update her resentment list? She's still harping on about Bill Ayers, three years after the election was called. And just the other day I seem to remember her harping on Obama's lack of experience — surely an issue that lessens with every passing year. It shows you how resistant to new information she is — rocking herself to sleep with these Golden Oldies — but also how seared into her psyche that 2008 loss was. How literally traumatic. HelpGuide.Org:
A normal response to trauma becomes PTSD when you become stuck. After a traumatic experience, the mind and the body are in shock. But as you make sense of what happened and process your emotions, you come out of it. With post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), however, you remain in psychological shock. Your memory of what happened and your feelings about it are disconnected.
