Some Things Snark Themselves

I wasn’t going to comment on Todd Purdum’s Vanity Fair piece on Sarah Palin, but then I caught this quote from the Purdum article from Michael Tomasky:

More than once in my travels in Alaska, people brought up, without prompting, the question of Palin’s extravagant self-regard. Several told me, independently of one another, that they had consulted the definition of “narcissistic personality disorder” in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders—”a pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy”—and thought it fit her perfectly.

When Trig was born, Palin wrote an e-mail letter to friends and relatives, describing the belated news of her pregnancy and detailing Trig’s condition; she wrote the e-mail not in her own name but in God’s, and signed it “Trig’s Creator, Your Heavenly Father.”

Some things snark themselves.

  1. There’s been an outbreak of that disorder among the right. A few on the left have contracted it as well. For some strange reason their followers either already have it or, for some strange reason want it. Noted symptoms are feelings of euphoria.

    Jeez, who needs oxycontin?

  2. I’m sorry Barbara if that sounded rude.I sincerely didn’t mean it that way, but that chick is such a train wreck I just blurted out.
    She hears voices in her head and thinks it is from GOD.
    Yep, she deserves a special place in the GOP…………..

  3. Isn’t Trig the name of some Norse or Eskimo god? Why didn’t she give the baby a good Christian name like Ezekiel or Obidiah?

  4. Dear MahaAbby…Caught your piece at Salon on the Sanford Schmuck-a-thon…You got chops…(And a nice photo, too)

  5. I read the whole article this afternoon. It speaks for itself in confirming most people’s suspicions: Palin has no clue what the heck is going on, nor does she even have any desire to learn.
