(1) Strong interest in a politician, political idea or political cause which can appear to be philosophical or merit based, but upon deeper investigation is characterized by a sexual, near-sexual or emotional attraction, or other nonsensical, unbalanced, primal or emotion-based affinity or need for that political person or thing.
In the political news media, or among other politicians, this results in the lowest, most biased form of news reporting and political deal-making known to man, outside of fascist or other propaganda or abuse of power.
(2) Term related to the depraved mental condition that makes one capable of relating political ideas and sexual attraction. It is a fanatical, often simplistic, illogical devotion to a politician or a political party of idea.
Politisexual reporting (adj)
Example: Chris Matthews, especially when regarding his Obama coverage.
Politisexual attraction (noun)
Occurs to anyone mentally weak enough to emotionally and/or unconsciously have an emotional or erogenous affinity for politicians or political things. Dependence or allegiance to a political person or thing in a sexual-like manner.
Example: Keith Olberrman, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Ralph Reid, Rush Limbaugh, and Rusty Humphries all suffer from a politisexual attraction similar to single-minded, vacuous nymphomaniacs. Some worse than others.
The interest of Chris Matthews, of MSNBC, in Barack Obama not only abandoned an objective reporting premise, but it escaped mere improper political affinity by this news reporter and entered the realm of a sick, difficult-to-watch, politisexual interest.
