I don't generally visit any type of political website. But due to the new visitors reading about Narcissistic Personality Disorder, I found this post from 2006 from the Daily Kos diagnosing President Bush (and VP Cheney, Karl Rove and whomever else - probably Don Rumsfeld) with "Narcissistic Personality Disorder." What's the disorder for people who focus their entire lives, spending perhaps four or five or more hours a day, trashing the same political figures they could just vote "no" on during the next election? Or - spend those hours . . . doing something? Like something constructive?
Even worse, this person is referencing Jon Krakauer's atypical book, Under the Banner of Heaven. It's a chilling story of Mormon extremist brothers who slaughtered the estranged wife of one brother in a hideous, gruesome crime.
It must be nice, that your life is so devoid of problems that you think any political figure elected in our country has this disorder. I guess old Abe Lincoln was right on the edge of it, right?
This is more like it: The Feroze Golwolla Story. Someone involved in this tragic cult visited my website today. My heart goes out to this family as well. It sounds as if this man is a crafty enough criminal that he may not be brought to justice for his crimes against the young people that are discussed on the web page. If you're involved in a crazy situation that "makes no sense," where behavior is being manipulated and many lies are being told, have a look at this story. See if you see anything in common. Or wait - no - go back and look into how George W. Bush is that way. Unbelievable.
Here's a link to someone accusing ALL liberals of having the disorder. And there was another article accusing Barack Obama of the same; it's been removed (I wonder why?). To armchair diagnosticians out there -- while politicians certainly have large egos, and some of them have antisocial personalities or lack consciences, that isn't NPD. People with NPD have very sick, twisted egos that are stunted and immature. No one who really had the full-blown disorder could be a politician and stand for office, and remain there. They cannot tolerate criticism of any kind, and will go to extremes (yes, Virginia, even more extreme than - I know it's real real hard to believe - than George W. Bush) to avoid it. It takes a big ego and a tough hide to be a politician in the U.S. It's unlikely someone with the fullblown disease would ever be elected to a major state or national office (local politics - another matter - it tolerates all types of fruits and nuts).
