Conservatives seem to gravitate toward egomaniacs, which might explain the inexplicable popularity of Donald Trump among tea partiers. Appearing on Fox News Monday, “The Donald” said his endorsement helped Romney win by nearly 30 points. “There was a lot riding on that particular race in Nevada and it was interesting, because the numbers were much, […]Read more "Bigger ego: Trump or Limbaugh?"

Of all the juicy tidbits leaked from a former aide’s upcoming book about the reality show vet, this one rings truest: Bailey writes that Palin drafted her own letters to the editor during her run for governor and sent them in under supporters’ names. Palin relayed the first one in an email to Bailey: “Dear […]Read more "Narcissus and Palin"
Pro baller Carmelo Anthony congratulated himself Saturday for dealing with distractions he created after turning down a $64.7 million contract extension. “I think it takes a strong-willed person, a strong-minded person, to deal with the stuff that I deal with and still go out there and go to work every day and perform on a […]Read more "Self-absorbed pro athlete du jour"
LeBron James, who does it all for the children, and the Miami Heat are in town for a meaningless exhbition game. Atlantans tend to be starstruck front-runners, and it’s especially ugly when those two qualities collide. The beneficiary? A ring-less star with an unmatched ego and a tendency to play the victim. At least Kobe […]Read more "Expect to see Atlantans at their most sycophantic tonight"
O’Brien asked James if race played a role in the backlash. “I think so, at times,” James said. “There’s always a race factor.” Racism will always be with us, and so will self-absorbed professional athletes. I fail to see what one has to do with the other in this case. I suspect many of James’ […]Read more "Only a racist who hates kids would call LeBron James arrogant"

Score one for unrestrained self-aggrandizement: LeBron James ‘Decision’ scores big ratings I was not among the viewers, but the reviews have been unkind. Apparently James, who has won zero championships, talked about himself, aka “The King,” in the third person — not that it mattered to his handpicked audience of adoring children and obsequious ESPN […]Read more "MALCONTENT EXCLUSIVE: Hollywood to make film version of LeBron James infomercial"

The Cleveland free agent will announce his decision on a hour-long special Thursday on ESPN. I’m not sure how they’ll eat up 60 minutes — perhaps musical numbers devoted to LeBron. His people pitched the special to ESPN, so there will be no shortage of ego on display. For the record, LeBron has won exactly […]Read more "The 1st annual LeBron James Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Self-Absorption"

Your ego has some competition. LeBron James — who calls himself the “King,” as do the sycophants in the sports media — recently named his five favorite athletes growing up. Tops on his list? LeBron James, who’s still looking for his first NBA championship. He’s the perfect American hero — all ego, no accomplishment. –CBRead more "move over, kanye"
