Barack Obama: Insane in the Membrane?

In what appears to be the highest-profile case in history of "locking the barn door after the horse has escaped", the media have finally taken the blinkers off vis a vis one Barack Hussein Obama.
A drubbing all across the NY Times op-ed pages certainly is startling enough, but Obama's behavior and attitude during a 60 Minutes interview forced an incredulous Steve Kroft to question the president's sanity:

“You're sitting here. And you're— you are laughing. You are laughing about some of these problems. Are people going to look at this and say, ‘I mean, he's sitting there just making jokes about money—’ How do you deal with— I mean: explain. . .” Kroft asks at one point.

“Are you punch-drunk?” Kroft says.

“No, no. There's gotta be a little gallows humor to get you through the day,” Obama says, with a laugh.

So is he incredibly disrespectful, or is he cracking under the strain of having a job with responsibility for the first time in his life? Well, we feel the evidence points to the latter rather than the former - note these symptoms for mental illness as listed by the MHAM:

Irrational statements
Peculiar use of words or language structure
Excessive fears or suspiciousness

All we've heard from Barack (al least, when he's not travelling with The Teleprompter) lately is irrational statements and peculiar words. "Excessive fears"? Well, it certainly puts Obama's Limbaugh obsession in a new light...

Hostility, from one formerly pleasant and friendly (Obama's ugly partisanship)
Indifference, even in highly important situations (see above re: 60 Minutes)
Inappropriate laughter (60 Minutes, again)
Inability to concentrate or cope with minor problems (still can't get those low-level posisitions filled yet, Mr. Chief Executive?)

Insane, he is. Clinicaly insane.

Though it does go a long way in explaining his delusions of granduer....
