Pope Al Gore has resurfaced.
After months of story after story exposing the gross hoax that warmists tried to pull on the world, the head global warming zealot wrote a New York Times op-ed claiming that he and his warmist brethren are right and objective scientists are wrong. In fact, if humanity doesn’t heed Church doctrine, we shall experience “an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.” The Pope also decreed that from this point forward, only drivers of chartreuse cars flying shrieking empty-skull flags should be allowed to buy gas between the hours of 12:43 am and 2:17 pm every other Tuesday, and that the animal pictured below, whatever it may be, is the most beautiful creature on Earth.
Hoover Institution Fellow Henry Miller writes:
There may be a medical explanation for what makes Al Gore tick. On the basis of his actions and writings over many years my guess is Gore suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. The criteria for this diagnosis, as described in the psychiatrist’s bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, include a “pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts,” as indicated by these manifestations:
– “A grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements).”
– “Preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty or ideal love; believes that he or she is ‘special’ and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions).”
– “Requires excessive admiration.”
– “Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others … shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.”
Sounds like someone else we see and hear from ad nauseam on TV, radio, the internet, papers, magazines, and anywhere that he can find an audience.
Miller exposes how Pope Al fits the definition of narcissist. But while you are reading Miller’s analysis, keep our Narcissist-in-Chief in mind. You’ll find it easy to think of examples from Obama’s campaign and first year in office in which he also exhibited loud-and-clear narcissism.
Al may be Pope, but he’ll never be President. Hopefully, there are finally enough Congressional representatives who comprehend both the global warming hoax and the American people’s rejection of the massive wealth redistribution scheme that Democrats had planned in response to that hoax. Pope Al will eventually fade. But Narcissist-in-Chief Obama still threatens America’s prosperity — every day. And Obama’s not going anywhere any time soon.
