Narcissism, The Tie that Binds

“Blessed be the tie that binds
Our hearts all self-absorbed wove
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like that to that above.” (Heartfelt apologies to the hymn-writer

Rod Sterling here. (Cue the Twilight Zone music…) A few studies in lack-of-character to illustrate a trend that seems to be running rampant in our nation.

Case Study #1: Believing that the world waits with baited breath on your next pronouncement of wisdom. Ted ponders if adding human ka-bobs to the appetizer menu will boost sales during droughts. Possibly dovetailing nicely with a bison burger, wedge salad with house BLT Ranch dressing and “…a nice chianti.” Ted! Bro! Is it not enough that you have the most toys of ANY US citizen? The “Mouth of the South” says that if swift and drastic measures aren’t taken to save the planet from “global warming”, then

Not doing it will be catastrophic. We’ll be eight degrees hotter in ten, not ten but 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow. Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals.

I wonder if those ka-bobs will be wrapped in bacon? Doubt it, because his Muslim pals wouldn’t eat them. Shame.

Case study #2: When does narcissism cross the lines of propriety and common sense and thus endangers entire populations? When its the Sheriff, silly. And not just any Sheriff, but the sheriff of Clayton County (notice the “little” s). Jay Bookman/AJC takes the sheriff to task for his latest shenanigans….

Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill is acting like a little punk.

And the sad part is, he’s deluded enough to think that his repeated temper tantrums will get him a seat at the big people’s table, which he so desperately wants.

It shouldn’t, and it won’t.

To the contrary, Hill’s antics have made him a regionwide laughingstock and cemented the image of Clayton County government as a place where insanity reigns. With his misbehavior, Hill has also added fuel to the argument for letting urban counties abolish the elective office of sheriff.

His actions (or lack thereof) prove he has no intention of following the “To Protect and To Serve” motto and doesn’t expect any of his minions to, either. He poses and prances around the courthouse with his bodyguards. He posts large, threatening billboards around the county (all they really need are loudspeakers blasting at all hours of the day and night his edicts to make the jump over to the Ministry of Love) while thugs run amok on the streets. He’s audited – he doesn’t care. He’s sued (ad nauseum) – he doesn’t care. His deputies are owed mountains of back-pay – he doesn’t care. His ambition knows no boundaries.

This time around, it eventually became clear that Hill is trying to launch an anti-burglary task force with his deputies, another effort that duplicates the work of Clayton police.

He barred Clayton police from the jail as leverage to get burglary-related documents from the police department, documents the police say he could have had for the asking.

That is not the act of a man serious about public service or protecting public safety. That is not the act of a man who understands that deputy sheriffs work for the people, not for him.

Most of all, that is not the act of a man who should be given additional power.

In fact, here’s a prediction: Unless Hill is turned out of office by Clayton voters — his first four-year term is up this year — his career in public service will almost certainly end in disaster. [Emphasis – Admin]

Now… the final cases. Time for a Clinton double-dip. Bill loses his cool with California super-delegates.

… as the group moved together for the perfunctory photo, Rachel Binah, a former Richardson delegate who now supports Hillary Clinton, told Bill how “sorry” she was to have heard former Clinton campaign manager James Carville call Richardson a “Judas” for backing Obama.

It was as if someone pulled the pin from a grenade.

“Five times to my face (Richardson) said that he would never do that,” a red-faced, finger-pointing Clinton erupted.

The former president then went on a tirade that ran from the media’s unfair treatment of Hillary to questions about the fairness of the votes in state caucuses that voted for Obama. It ended with him asking delegates to imagine what the reaction would be if Obama was trailing by just 1 percent and people were telling him to drop out.

Its not the first time Bill’s gotten all red-faced. He hurts his wife’s chances every time he does. Now the question is, is he in it for her or himself? Or is it a couple’s contest to see who can tell the biggest whoppers? Talk amongst yourselves.

Boortz covered Hilary’s involvement and subsequent firing during the Watergate investigation. The summary:

So .. all you Hillary fans out there. Here we have your hero once again hiding documents that could be damaging to her cause (Rose Law Firm billing records, Vince Foster’s files) and then committing an unethical act in preparing a brief on a point of law she knew to be false. And you want this lady to be our president?

Following the link to Dan Calabrese, we get more details than any MSM outlet will dare divulge.

As they say, read the whole thing, and then pick up your teeth.

“Because she was a liar,” [Jerry] Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.

How could a 27-year-old House staff member do all that? She couldn’t do it by herself, but Zeifman said she was one of several individuals – including Marshall, special counsel John Doar and senior associate special counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum – who engaged in a seemingly implausible scheme to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.

Why would they want to do that? Because, according to Zeifman, they feared putting Watergate break-in mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by counsel to the president. Hunt, Zeifman said, had the goods on nefarious activities in the Kennedy Administration that would have made Watergate look like a day at the beach – including Kennedy’s purported complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.

The actions of Hillary and her cohorts went directly against the judgment of top Democrats, up to and including then-House Majority Leader Tip O’Neill, that Nixon clearly had the right to counsel. Zeifman says that Hillary, along with Marshall, Nussbaum and Doar, was determined to gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon. And in order to pull this off, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception. [Emphasis – Admin, again. Yes, I know.]

Sound familiar? Think Rose Law Firm files, Sandy “Pants” Berger, Bosnia sniper fire, etc. etc. etc. Blech!

The original title for this post was “Bad Form! Bad Form!” Any guesses why…?

Fausta posted about Hillary’s Watergate days yesterday. Siggy has written reams about Narcissism. As well as the other Good Doctors.



In the meantime, what happens to the country?
