Rocktivity: The Rock and Roll Attitude In Action
Posted by rocknation in General Discussion: Presidential (Through Nov 2009)

And it's a symptom of a psychotic personality.

Combine interpersonal exploitation ("tak(ing) advantage of others to achieve (one's) own ends") with a sense of entitlement ("unreasonable expectations of...favorable treatment or automatic compliance") and arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes, and you get people who are so egotistical they don't bother to anticipate the possible consequences of their actions.

No doubt DeLay was delighted when his move to oust the first judge was successful--he wanted it, he got it. But I'm sure that it never occurred to him that his success would come at a price--it was probably a complete shock to him that the prosecution would not only counterattack, but with the same weapon HE had used! But his kind don't think that far ahead or back--that would require empathy. And it's why neocons are constantly accusing Dems of the same things they're guilty of and warding off accusations of hypocrisy.

These folks have no concept of "in the long term," Sendero. With them, the ends justifies the means ALWAYS.
