Here is Snopes on the email that TF has publicised.
Now, Snope’s pages are protected so I can’t quote directly but they do link to the article written by Sam Vaknin. It differs little from the email quoted by TF. Actually, if you read it it could equally if not more so be applied to the immediate past President and most particularly to his cohorts of loving supporters. Remember all of the “left-wing-media-bias” wailing from the likes of the right?
At first, in a desperate effort to maintain the fiction underlying his chaotic personality, the narcissist strives to explain away the sudden reversal of sentiment. "The people are being duped by (the media, big industry, the military, the elite, etc.)", "they don't really know what they are doing", "following a rude awakening, they will revert to form", etc.
Narcissistic injury inevitably leads to narcissistic rage and to a terrifying display of unbridled aggression.
And how about this?
The narcissistic leader fosters and encourages a personality cult with all the hallmarks of an institutional religion: priesthood, rites, rituals, temples, worship, catechism, mythology. The leader is this religion's ascetic saint. He monastically denies himself earthly pleasures (or so he claims) in order to be able to dedicate himself fully to his calling.
Remember the "I talk to God every night"? Though honest reflection would apply that fragment more to Cheney than to GWB. After all he was the one that "denied" himself the earthly pleasures collected through the good offices of Halliburton Corp.
“Fascinating” stuff!! What sport! What brilliance!!
Until, as Snopes suggest, you dig a little deeper.

The diagnosis and treatment of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder can only be done by professional specifically trained and qualified to do so.
The author is NOT A MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL.
In other words, the validity of the email, the original article, are of as much validity as the mindless prognostications of the probligo.
Does that mean I should be famous?
