“Lyin’ Ryan” Accuses IRS Commissioner of . . . Lying.

Well, it’s been a rather surreal week what with every neocon zombie rising from the crypt to dance on the graves of the hundreds of thousands whose lives they destroyed playing their chickenhawk war games.  And the media rushing to capture their every demented word on the matter as if it had anything to do with reality.  Or truth.  Or integrity.

The whole business seemed to blindside a fair number of Americans who registered a collective STFU you squirrelly nutjobs—we got rid of you for a reason.

I think the most galling thing about this hallucinatory political theater is that most sane, average Americans expect that when people in high places are exposed as liars, traitors, cheats and troublemakers they will somehow have the good grace to shuffle away from the limelight and lead lives of quiet desperation, grateful that their fellow citizens have not punished them as severely as they deserve.

But, as we learned this week, some people are simply not “wired” like the rest of us.  They don’t play by the same rules and they are obviously not burdened by conscience.  Mental health experts might diagnose such people as victims of antisocial personality disorders. 

A few of the characteristics of antisocial personality disorder are:

Superficial charm and good intelligence
Absence of delusions and other signs of irrational thinking
Unreliability
Untruthfulness and insincerity
Lack of remorse and shame
Poor judgment and failure to learn by experience
Pathological egocentricity and incapacity for love

We all know a few—these people blend.  They are not disturbed enough to commit but they are certainly disturbed enough to wreak havoc in the lives of those they touch.
