Politico ran a story today quoting an interview of Sarah Palin with her old buddy, Greta. She is quoted as saying:

“Still very engaged internally with my family in discussions about whether we should do this or not, Greta,”

“But in the meantime, I’m getting kind of a kick out of … getting out there, giving a speech, making some statements about things that must be discussed and then the very next day watching some of the candidates get up there and discuss what it was that we just talked about, like the corruption, the crony capitalism, the waste, the fraud – some of those things that are going on right now. It’s like, come on, candidates, it’s about time you started talking about that!

“And if that perhaps is my role right now, presently, is to get people talking about the issues that the American people deserve to hear discussed, and the solutions that can result from the discussions about some of the issues that we talk about, then I’m going to keep doing that.”

“I’m sick of giving the same answer, believe me,” to the presidential question. “I’m anxious to give an answer and get on with life one way or the other. But whichever direction life takes me, I’m going to continue to speak up for we the people and the tea party movement and the mama grizzlies.”

“Narcissistic personality disorder”  is defined by the Mayo Clinic as :

“Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

Narcissistic personality disorder is one of several types of personality disorders. Personality disorders are conditions in which people have traits that cause them to feel and behave in socially distressing ways, limiting their ability to function in relationships and in other areas of their life, such as work or school.”

Sarah Palin is the poster child for Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Only a mentally ill person with an “inflated sense of their own importance” would suggest that the country is talking about “ crony capitalism, the waste, and fraud” because she did an interview in which she talked about these things. It would be like saying that on the tenth anniversary of 9-11 we were talking about 9-11 because of Palin’s facebook post that day. 

We have also seen examples of Palin’s feelings of superiority to others and little regard for other people’s feelings. One of the most memorable examples was the description by Frank Bailey in Blind Allegiance when he described the day one of Sarah’s supporters gave her his most precious of possessions, his fedora, brandishing all of his campaign buttons . Sarah thought that this campaign worker’s hat was “icky” and threw it in the trash.

When she became a part of John McCain’s campaign she demonstrated her lack of regard for his staff, by insisting that they wash her panties. (GameChange)

Sarah Palin is also vulnerable to the slightest of criticism. Remember when Karl Rove said, it looked like she might run and she got upset. She was described as having “thin skin.” Even though Rove was not trying to be critical, she perceived his comments to be an attack on her.

Sarah Palin is not a child, but she is the poster adult for “Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”
