Freudian quips...

We've been playing armchair psychiatrist in the comment section but Deb Cotton seriously (somewhat seriously) made the case back in 2009:

Signs Your Mayor Might Be A Psychopath

It's worth a revisit.  I still am not willing to go that far but I do agree wholeheartedly with the last bullet point:

- Failure to Accept Responsibility for Own Actions

The comments on the last few posts are entertaining to say the least.  The only guy I'm fully willing to armchair diagnos is Bennett.  That fucking oblivious to the concept of guilt or social responsibility.  Is that called sociopathy?

My favorite definition of sociopath is critically deprived of empathy. I wrote lyrics that started out with that.

Actually I think these days psychopathy and sociopathy are interchangeable in the DSM. And yes, Deborah is using the Hare Test I alluded to a couple days ago and she's right IMO.
