Al Gore’s increasingly desperate refusal to admit he had lost the presidential election has some observers wondering if he is mentally ill. In fact, he fits the criteria for narcissistic personality disorder to an eerie tee.

A popular Internet message being spread around the globe notes that the description of this disorder sums up Gore’s entire being.

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV), the bible of psychological problems, narcissistic personality disorder is marked by:

“A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:

“(1) has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)

“(2) is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love

“(3) believes that he or she is ‘special’ and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)

“(4) requires excessive admiration

“(5) has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations

“(6) is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends

“(7) lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others

“(8) is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her

“(9) shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.”

    Pretty hilarious although he may seriously have had a mental breakdown after losing the election to the Electoral College.

    Consider that he won the majority vote. He then grows a beard, puts on about 50 pounds and reemerges with his wacky global warming hysteria.

    What’s more frightening is that he could have been the leader of the Free World for 4 to 8 years.

    This is great. Gore may really be mentally ill! He doesn’t seem to know that if he had only won in his home state of Tennessee or Arkansas, his former boss’ state, he would be president.

    Even the Democrat machine couldn’t put the Florida recounts together for the king. Does he weigh in at 300 lbs.? See more at
