1. It was just the biochemical state of his brain at the time. Everything he said was predetermined by physics from within the matter and energy of the Big Bang, there is no such thing as a "mental" imbalance or balance for that matter because all that matters is matter. So one may as well continue on Stoically to whatever brain event is predetermined to happen next in your little head. I hope it will be an eventful day for you, as it is for me.
2. He has brain parasites and so a bit of an urge...to merge. I think I may work up a hypothesis about the Leftist urge to merge that will be just as good as the hypothetical goo typical to Darwinism. That way if I need it I can just throw some hypothetical goo around and then claim that anyone who disagrees isn't trying to "imagine" things evolving from nothing hard enough.
3. He's just another politician who craves legitimacy above all. That craving is why he got into politics in the first place, thus the disparate pandering and lies depending on whatever audience he is standing before. Above all, he must seem legitimate to them.
4. Wait, I almost forgot the conspiracy theory. So lastly, his mind is being warped by aliens, the same aliens that have pretended to be gods throughout history and that are wound up in the CIA's remote viewing programs and the like. E.g.:
...over the weeks that followed the tests, the physicists began to experience strange apparitions, both at home and in the laboratory... These were also seen by members of the physicists’ families. It is as if Lawrence Livermore Laboratories had suddenly become haunted: one physicist even received a telephone call from the metallic voice. Eventually these weird events stopped, as if a temporary rip in the veil between dimensions had been abruptly zipped up again. In addition, several participants in the Pentagon/CIA’s remote-viewing programmes experienced paranormal events outside of office hours, and also had apparent extraterrestrial contact...(The Stargate Conspiracy: The Truth About Extraterrestrial
These events, together with Puharich’s belief in the reality of extraterrestrial contact, raise the serious possibility that the CIA and other agencies were fully aware of the ‘otherworldly’ element attached to their psychic spying prgrammes, in which apparently nonhuman entities ‘came through’. After all, when a top nuclear weapons facility becomes ‘haunted’ and its hardheaded and sceptical scientists are so harassed by the weirdness that several of them come close to a nervous breakdown, such bizarre phenomena have to be taken seriously. They would want to know more about such things — if only to eliminate them from their psi-spy research, but, given the entities’ inside knowledge of top-secret code names, they would also want to know if a more controlled kind of contact could be made with such useful intelligences and if some kind of mutually beneficial dialogue could be set up. It would make sense: if the Nine really were space gods, it is not hard to imagine the advantages of having them on the side of the United States during the Cold War, for example, or as allies during any period of history. [...]
Many of the people involved with the Nine seem predisposed towards the idea of extraterrestrial contact, often because of their own prior experiences, for example, as mediums. And one objective of the Nine experiment appears to have been to test the possibility and controllability of such contact.

Al Gore enters the picture:
Farley records a meeting of Jones, Henry Belk and James Hurtak to discuss, among other things, the funding of the Human Potential Foundation. This suggests that Hurtak’s — and the Nine’s — philosophy is reaching the highest levels of US politics. Jones’s superior, Senator Claiborne Pell, is an extremely powerful figure in Washington. He was Chairman of the Senate’s influential Foreign Relations Committee and is the elder statesman -->>>whom the younger Vice-President Al Gore has come to respect.<<<-- [!!!] Pell and Gore worked closely together when the latter was a senator. The two share a passionate belief in the paranormal and both are great supporters of government-funded psi research. [...] Not only do Vice-President Al Gore and Senator Claiborne Pell share the same esoteric interests, but they are also political allies. It is reasonable to assume that Gore is familiar with the Nine; if so, how much is he influenced by their teachings — or, in the worst case scenario, even their instructions? The evidence suggests that he is by no means the only top-ranking American politician to have been drawn into the Nine’s sphere of influence.(Ib. :250-251) (Emphasis added)
It's too bad I'm not a Leftist because I think I could weave some good conspiracy theories where everything is linked and associated, if not blurred together. Yes, some bits of information are linked over networks and so on but it takes a lot of arrogance to take little bits of knowledge and simply weave them together as you want to, as some do. E.g., I could weave a combination of explanations four and two: Come close and I'll tell you....it's like this, the demon-god alien type things designed parasites to manipulate human brains at their command. Enter Monsanto* and genetically modified food, they're the people who will control all Life on the planet one day by controlling food after global warming and the famines! And there's McDonalds, feeding you that aspartame that helps the brain parasites.
That's fun, not to mention that there's real knowledge interwoven into most conspiracy theories. (Except the Leftist ones these days, most actually seem to begin with stupidity and ignorance and then go on to craft absolutely idiotic associations from their own absurd set of facts.)
For the record, I think the correct answer is number three. Too bad though, I could have fun with conspiracy theory. The Christian version of the almost neurotic thinking typical to it seems to be dispensationalism, although I don't know much about it. The only thing I would note is that many people at the highest levels of culture do claim to see little visions and things, e.g. Hitler, which did seem rather demonic. Most of the Hollywood types are into weird things and cults, it would seem that the "stars" are still idols in America. Dan Rather claimed to talk to a ghost and so on, who knows what people at the highest levels of culture and the shaping of our "cult" are not saying lest they look all craaaazy. But claiming to know much about it would make for a thin conspiracy theory, maybe some good science fiction though.
*(There are real conspiracies and Monsanto is obviously conspiring corporately to control farming and the production of food, mainly because that's what they're in business to do. That's an easy conspiracy theory, valid too. I do not mean that there are not real conspiracies, just that they're usually much more difficult to have knowledge of than the average conspiracy theorist seems to think. I.e. with many of them if you were right then you would be dead already, which is the case with many of the conspiracy theories about Bush these days.)
