It's an interesting and predictable phenomenon in politicians.
Narcissistic, selfish, egotistic behavior at its height.
So narcissistic, in fact, that the governor seems incapable of even understanding the gravity of his situation.
Surely there is some psychological disorder, or category, that can be created to label politicians and their bad behavior as part of a larger mental incapacitation on their part.
Once we establish what "it" is, we can start profiling political candidates and ruling them out on the basis of their disability--self-absorbed, lying scoundrels.
Oh wait...then we wouldn't have any politicians.
"Mama, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys" needs to be changed to "Mama, don't let your babies grow up to marry politicians."
