Psycho-pathology in politics

with 4 comments

That of course was the title of the infamous piece published by Labour MP John A Lee just two days before the sainted Mickey Savage karked it back in 1940.

Labour never forgave him of course, as is their wont: nor, to be fair, did he forgive them. But the reality is that Lee’s crack has been true of all too many political leaders in history. Not just political leaders either. Several years ago an article was published that laid out the similarities between business leaders and psychopaths:

The hallmarks of the psychopathic personality involve egocentric, grandiose behavior, completely lacking empathy and conscience. Additionally, psychopaths may be charismatic, charming, and adept at manipulating one-on-one interactions. In a corporation, one’s ability to advance is determined in large measure by a person’s ability to favorably impress his or her direct manager. Unfortunately, certain of these psychopathic qualities – in particular charm, charisma, grandiosity (which can be mistaken for vision or confidence) and the ability to “perform” convincingly in one-on-one settings – are also qualities that can help one get ahead in the business world.

I’m sure the average Lefty will have no problem making that association, also with certain Right-WIng politicians. Less so with their own idols of worship, like Michael Gunner, Chief Minister of the Northern Territory in Australia:

I see he’s had heart surgery recently so one can hope.

Then there’s this asshole, shown here on the cover of his book, published at a time when the US MSM was still slobbering over him.

Cuomo eventually got his beans because he’s another prick who felt entitled enough to get grabby with attractive young woman who strayed into his orbit.

But as this NY Post article put it, however low you think this scum could be,…. “There’s always more, and it’s always worse than you thought. Much worse”:

That’s one lesson from the state Assembly report, which reveals new details of Cuomo’s venality. From sexual harassment to lies about nursing home deaths and his forbidden use of state employees to help finish his book, the governor is convincingly portrayed as a greedy, dishonest man without a shred of decency. 

All of this has actually been known for some time, but you had to be reading Right-Wing news sources like RedState and Powerline to know because the MSM did not want to know, and certainly didn’t want voters to know, until the very end when it became undeniable:

The thing that I always wanted him to be hammered for was the very thing that was ignored even at the end:

The biggest lapse is how the report fails to deal with the impact of Cuomo’s infamous March 25 order of last year that required nursing homes to admit discharged hospital patients infected with COVID-19. The order also barred the sites from even testing the patients until they were admitted. 

Exactly, and the resulting death toll was in the thousands. At best he’s getting done for sexual harassment, his shitty book deal worth millions of dollars (a form of corrupt graft in itself, since the book was never likely to be a best-seller recovering the “investment”) and for lying through his teeth about the number of people he killed in those nursing homes:

Key among those is showing how Cuomo overruled Department of Health employees and reduced the number of reported nursing home deaths by about 35 percent on the very days he was negotiating the contract for his book deal on pandemic leadership.

It’s entirely typical that psychopaths don’t get done for the worst crimes they committed. Still, like Al Capone getting jailed for tax evasion rather than murder, I suppose we should be grateful that at least this much happened to the POS.

As always, don’t forget the MSM that enabled this creature for so long, just because he was a Democrat and not Trump, and how they enable many others too with displays of sycophantic stenography.

    • I’m very much reminded of this woman’s reaction to Boris’s last election victory.

  3. Does everyone really expect politicians to be corrupt perverts? Perhaps that’s the new low standard.

    I wonder what role the Maxwell trial plays in all this Covid distraction. Or, is she part of the collapse of the elite, a distraction from coming inflation. Dunedin launching into rough seas in a dinghy with a cool billion in debt. We will be glad for the distraction when another pervert politician gets busted and fed to the lions.
