We Americans are truly blessed by having a mainstream media full of brilliant renaissance men, women, and gender non-specific entities who are masters of so many varied and intermittently useful skills and who are eager to share their knowledge with us benighted souls.

Here are some people who matter, especially now: Soldiers, nurses, truckers, cops, the guy who stocks the shelves at Ralphs, farmers, and that dude rebuilding your roof.
Liberal Narcissism Exploitation by the Left
In 'Liberalism is a Mental Disorder' author Michael Savage argued that the typical Liberal is mentally deranged, which is something most sane people already knew. In 'The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness' Dr. Lyle Rossiter took the thesis a step further when he described Liberal progressive ideology as a psychological malady that denies personal responsibility and encourages self-pity. Freelance journalist Rusty Weiss in an article for the Political Insider argues that Liberalism is not a newly discovered or novel mental disorder at all, but simply a manifestation of an already studied psychological issue known as narcissistic personality disorder (NPD)...
