Astronut To Plead 'Nuts'

This might be the first smart thing Nowak's done in the whole sordid affair. What juror is going to look at a 1,000-mile diaper-wearing, overnight psycho drive as "sane?"

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Former astronaut Lisa Nowak is pursuing an insanity defense on charges that she assaulted and tried to kidnap a romantic rival, according to a document released Tuesday.

Circuit Court Judge Marc L. Lubet unsealed Nowak's notice of intent to rely on the insanity defense. Florida law requires such a notice before trial to let prosecutors prepare.

Defense attorney Donald Lykkebak said in the filing that Nowak suffered from major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, insomnia and "brief psychotic disorder with marked stressors."

"This notice does not challenge competence to stand trial, but only raises insanity at the time of the offense," he wrote.

If bat-shiat crazy can't get her off she's in deep doo-doo...

I saw a brief portion of her televised testimony yesterday. "bat-shiat crazy" sounds about right.

Probably time to find someone new to head up the psychiatric review group at NASA, ain't it?

Unless, of course, someone's got an eye on the next great pay-per-view event..."Cat fights in zero-G!"

Considering NASA let people who were actively drunk participate in Shuttle missions, should we be surprised that they'd keep someone crazier than a sh*thouse rat on the personnel roles?

If you couldn't pass the process for being a nuclear submariner, then being an astronaut should be out of the question.

"marked stressors"

Is that a reference to a brief psychotic disorder or what CSI Miami found in her adult diaper?

Someone needs to test her for BDS. That would explain a lot. Makes people do craaaaazy stuff.

Heralder:

I was thinking about this today, the insanity plea has become a little too pliable as a defense.

Generally.

In this case however, it looks like it's pretty damn accurate.

langtry is making the most relevant point..how the hell did she get there to begin with?

I know that in the private sector when something like this happens (like what is going on in the debt markets now) someone invariably asks "Who the hell signed off on this?!"

After the legal system dispenses with her someone should start marching up the chain of command with an axe...not a diaper.

Scrapiron:

"Considering NASA let people who were actively drunk participate in Shuttle missions", Hasn't this rumor been determined to be just that, a rumor started by someone who will never fly a piper, much less the shuttle. Just remember reading that this had been debunked. I know that Algor-abge got his 'global warming garbage' information from someone (moonbat suffering from advanced BDS) with a vested interest at NASA and turns out there was a mistake,?? maybe on purpose. We are now back to 1934 as the warmest year on record, not 1998. I can see how 1998 almost made it, Algor-abge and the Clinton's were outputting a lot of hot air in D.C.

Given the importance of Florida, and the way the Cubans vote, if Castro dies before the election, it's the Clintonistas shutting him up.

Just what Hillary needed, Castro's endorsement.
