The little old Cajun woman who lives down my road should be given the same bully pulpit, but it will never happen. Besides, regular folks aren’t narcissistic enough to even assume their opinions should matter in the political arena. Instead, the media jumps all over an aging singer as if his opinion should carry any weight at all.
Once again the media, and that includes progressive media, is attempting to ram critical choices down our throats in what feels like a rape of the mind.
OK, so maybe I am narcissistic when I assume my opinion should matter, but I am not self-absorbed enough to tell readers how to vote. Let’s get that issue out of the way immediately. Consider this.
Look up any medical or popular description of a narcissist and you will find that their main personality traits include a craving for attention, lack of empathy, overconfidence in their abilities, erratic behavior, entitlement, and exploitive tendencies.
Are these the individuals that should influence the course of history? So many celebrities are making a mess out of Africa with their sophomoric interpretations of conflict there.
After all, celebrities are only “legends in their own minds.”
