Just to add a note of clarification:

Drug abuse and alcoholism are considered addictions, part of the spectrum of mental health issues. Says my medical school training. So when we inveigh the antics of a failing female pop star with clear addiction problems, we must admit, we are playing dirty with our metaphors.

Secondly: is deliberative democracy about inciting the spite and ire of our opponents? Geez, Bratina, you're my counsellor. I thought that you were supposed to represent your constituents, as should Merulla. Unless, of course, we've all agreed that votes by our elected politicians are to be used as political weapons to air their own personal vendettas; maybe I have this notion of "democracy" all wrong....
