A New Addition To The Harper Enemies List

But then again, no surprises here, except that it is being leveraged into a fundraising appeal.

But it is a bit rich, isn't it, that given their expertise in the area, the Harper cabal should be carping about disgusting personal attacks?

Is hypocrisy too obvious a word?


  1. Oh my, disgusting personal attacks.

    Well, let's run down the psychopathic traits of sociopaths, as compiled by Dr. Hare, Emeritus Professor of Psychology at the University of British Columbia:

    1. Grandiose Self-Worth - A grossly inflated view of one’s abilities and self-worth, self-assured, opinionated, cocky, a braggart. Psychopaths are arrogant people who believe they are superior human beings.

    2. Pathological Lying - Can be moderate or high; in moderate form, they will be shrewd, crafty, cunning, sly, and clever; in extreme form, they will be deceptive, deceitful, underhanded, unscrupulous, manipulative, and dishonest.

    3. Lack of Remorse or Guilt - A lack of feelings or concern for the losses, pain, and suffering of victims; a tendency to be unconcerned, dispassionate, cold-hearted, and non-empathic. This item is usually demonstrated by a disdain for one’s victims.

    4. Shallow Affect - Emotional poverty or a limited range or depth of feelings; interpersonal coldness in spite of signs of open gregariousness.

    5. Callousness and Lack of Empathy - A lack of feelings toward people in general; cold, contemptuous, inconsiderate, and tactless.

    ... yeah, let's just stop there...

    1. Thanks, Brian, for that timely reminder of those who try to pass themselves off as 'one of the people.' Given our present political situation, some are clearly worse at concealment than others.

      I have always found the topic of psychopathy fascinating. One of the books I read said that they often find outlets for themselves by securing positions of power, as in business and politics. Unfortunately, the choice of the latter means we all have to suffer.
