I had to do it, burning from the last post, before this too becomes old news! Italy’s 74 year old premier, media mogul and Dapper Dan, Silvio Berlusconi, is now under investigation for having sex with an under-aged prostitute. A 17 year old Moroccan girl, a.k.a. Ruby, reports she received over USD$9,000.00 to attend a party at his villa on Valentines day last year. She refutes having sex with him. This is but one in a long string of accusations and public outrage at a man whose ego knows no bounds. He might have also gone to the extent of using his political power to cover up this and other escapades. His extravagance is unlimited, and the threat of political suicide does not seem to faze him in the least.
Needless to say his second wife, Veronica Lario, divorced him in 2009, citing Berlusconi’s alleged fetish for younger women.
This disorder is a condition characterized by an inflated sense of self-importance, need for admiration, extreme self-involvement, and lack of empathy for others. Individuals with this disorder are usually arrogantly self-assured and confident. They expect to be noticed as superior. Many highly successful people might be considered narcissistic. However, this disorder is only diagnosed when these behaviors become persistent and very disabling or distressing.
Disabling for the person with the symptoms and distressing for the rest of the morons he has to deal with. 😉
