The Non-Narcissistic GOP

Did you know that a group who does not have an actual leader is ripe for a narcissist to step up and take over as the leader.

“...A study published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin suggests that when a group is without a leader, you can often count on a narcissist to take charge. Researchers found that people who score high in narcissism tend to take control of leaderless groups….”

This has absolutely fascinating implications for the GOP and says something rather damning about the Dems! It also does not speak well for losertarians and their Ron Paul fixation. Let’s just be honest that the face of narcissism is Ron Paul!

The Narcissist Among Us…?

The Pink Flamingo is a fan of pop-psychology. It is worth absolutely nothing. As a writer, though, it is good for shaping characters. Because of this, you do have a tendency to pick up information. As a daughter, I’ve spent some time reading up on narcissism. My mother has basically been stalked and harassed by a text-book narcissist for most of her life. A narcissist is a wounded person. Their narcissism has been developed for them to cope with a situation from their life. They have a tendency to personality problems to begin with – but an incident in childhood will push them over the edge.

“While the psychopath displays more antisocial features, the malignant narcissist desires “unlimited power”.

This week there is something of an awesome commemoration of Apollo 13 and the remarkable feat of saving the crew. A phrase was born:

BREAKING: Neil Armstrong Slams Obama in Letter

The Pink Flamingo thinks Barack Obama is a fool. Only a fool would squander our future. Idiot is revamping the Orion capsule. By revamping the capsule he is basically not only killing our return to the moon but going to Mars. Would someone please tell The Pink Flamingo what planet this freak lives on?

What the he-double-toothpick is wrong with him?

Why the heck doesn’t the freak take the money they are using on that idiotic railroad to nowhere in Florida and put it into space exploration?

From Americas Space:

“…The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has released a statement outlining the “new”, call it “new” v 2.0, NASA plan. It replaces the one that was announced on February 1st and has seen so few supporters that you could fit them all in a phone booth.

Praising The Great Man as a Conservative!

According to The Daily Beast, hardly an unbiased source, The Great Man is now being compared to The Pink Flamingo’s mother’s favorite POTUS – Harry Truman.

“…They both gave hell and got hell.
As presidents, George W. Bush and Harry S. Truman had a lot in common.
Both were skeptical of elites and the media, driven by their faith, had troubled presidencies, made momentous and difficult decisions, took the nation into war, were unpopular in their time and weren’t concerned about it. They deeply believed if they did the right thing, history would sort things out in the end….President Truman in 1948:
The only expansion we are interested in is the expansion of human freedom and the wider enjoyment of the good things of the earth in all countries… The only prize we covet is the respect and good will of our fellow members of the family of nations.”

Ron Paul’s 2012 POTUS Run OR Did Newt Actually Win SLRC Straw Poll?

Over a month ago The Pink Flamingo told you that Ron Paul was planning to disrupt the SRLC and hijack the straw poll. Ironically, he and his supporters did not count on Romney’s supporters being even more crafty. If you want to know the interesting facts behind the poll, check the 2nd choice. Paul is way out of it! The Romney people and Ron Paul Bots made a mess of things, but could not hide the 2nd choice – which goes to Newt!

“…Some reports from New Orleans indicate heavy, coordinated lobbying on behalf of the Paul and Romney campaigns. I don’t doubt it; we saw the same thing at the recent CPAC meetings on behalf of Paul, who brought a lot of motivated young people out to support him. So it’s interesting to look at the secondary preferences because, presumably, strategic supporters of Romney and Paul would know better than to cast their second-choice votes for the other guy.

The Old I’m With Stupid…on Immigration Reform

What part of stupid is so difficult to comprehend?

The usual suspects are completely out of touch when it comes to what is going on along the border. They are living in their little never-never land of immigration reform and hating anyone who crosses them. The problem is drugs, guns, and the out of control war along the border. This is a war that is threatening to spill into this country any day now, with disastrous results.

BREAKING: Losertarian Scam Group Declares Lindsey “Beast” from Revelations!

The latest attempt for Losertarians to destroy Lindsey is a thing of beauty. I am impressed. It has it all, religion, anti-immigration, slam the SPLC, the Anti-Christ, Chuck Schumer, Club for Growth, and and a Losertarian front group that is making money slamming good Republicans like Lindsey and Newt. It is like one of those infomertials where you get double your pleasure for just $19.99

Is Cochise County Murder Drug Related & Sign of Things To Come?

The Pink Flamingo has been following this story the way everyone else has, only I might see it a bit differently. The ONLY story you can find is how dastardly the illegal was who killed Robert Krentz. Unfortunately, THAT is not the story. The Arizona Attorney General said the murder was consistent with that of a drug cartel killing. Unfortunately the Cochise County Sheriff is not going along with the AG. The usual suspects are using their hatred of anyone Hispanic to promote immigration reform.

Jesus Christ Has Risen Today!

According to tradition, when Mary Magdalene went to the tomb of Christ, to anoint his body, she carried a basket of hard boiled eggs, which were something of a delicacy at the time. Legend says she planned to give the eggs to the Roman guards, as something of a bribe so she would not have a serious problem entering the tomb. Easter Eggs today are a tribute to an all but forgotten moment when a formerly sinful woman became the very first person to experience the Risen Christ. She literally became the First Apostle and the very first Christian.

The iPad?

You will not find The Pink Flamingo standing in line for an iPad today.

There is a very good reason.

Okay, I bought the 64G WiFi 3G Wireless version that will not be released until the end of the month!

It is coming via Fed Ex.

So – there!

And yes, I NEED it. I really, really, really do.

I can explain.

I’m going to sell off a couple of my older iPods on Ebay. And I plan to sell my Netbook. That will pay for half of it.

You see, as the consumate shoe-shopper I can legitimize anything!

Is Ron Paul the GOP Face of Pork?

It is about time!

The GOP has threatened to remove Ron Paul from all committee assignments because of his earmarks! What is so much fun is how the losertarian Ron Paul Bots are complaining.

“…Yes, this conflicts with libertarian ideology in part, but not in the whole. I don’t think almost any attention should be paid to the ridiculous earmark issue, which accounts for around 1% of the federal budget. But to the extent there is attention, Paul is correct. No earmark affects total appropriations. And failing to earmark does leave appropriations up to the federal government and the related executive agencies to determine where the money goes. You can see a list of Paul’s earmark requests here.

Something Strange in the Four Corners

The Pink Flamingo does not approve of the theft of artifacts, no matter how old or how new. As a historian and a writer in the field of the “Wild West”, Wyatt Earp, and Tombstone, I deal with this any time I start doing research. While I am a good Republican, I find private collectors of history and archaeology to be somewhat distasteful in their hording of valuable historical material. I don’t care if they own it. I just think documents, photos, etc. should be made available for study. In my field, I eschew such collectors and have been denied valuable material. I do not approve of their methods which at times are lot quite kosher.

Stop the Peep Persecution!

This is NOT an April Fool’s Joke. This is about one of the great American tragedies – the unwarranted persecution of Peeps, and people who like them.

The Pink Flamingo does not fear admitting that I like pink Peep bunnies! I have two packages sitting on my kitchen counter waiting for sundown on Saturday night when Lent ends. Yes, I gave up Peeps for Lent!

Are Peeps art?

A Letter to NM Senator Tom Udall

Dear Senator Udall;

I am so very disappointed that you voted for the deplorable and Unconstitutional health care bill. It is anti-capitalism, anti-business, and will prove to be the ruin of our senior citizens.

I gather you have not had to work with an aging parents who worked their whole lives to accumulate a nest egg. They now see it disappearing in front of them due to the the growing specter of inflation due to the Democrats absolutely insane spending. You are breaking our country.

Wednesday’s Hero – LTC Tim Karcher

LTC Tim Karcher

U.S. Army

Lieutenant Colonel Tim Karcher was shot in the shoulder in Iraq back in 2006. After just 5 months of healing at home that included 7 surgeries, he chose to go back to war.

“My unit was over there, they were taking casualties. It felt terrible to be here, it felt wrong,” he said.

Reunited with his troops, Karcher was in Baghdad last summer for the historic transfer of power from the U.S. to the Iraqis.

Valerie Plame Attorney Out to Get Hannity!

Picture the Dumbell Nebula!

The Pink Flamingo does not like defending Sean Hannity. Unfortunately, this time, I think he could be getting a bad deal. It appears as though he could be the victim of the Green Eyed Monster. The witch hunt based on what appears to be either stupidity, naivety, or a malicious vendetta is now attracting the usual liberal bottom feeders.

What do Oliver North, Sean Hannity and Sean Hannity have in common?
