Yo-ho, let's open up and sing and ring the bells out...

Please pardon me as I slam slight light on the head and heart (?) of a potential patient, a fellow woman and an absurdly, dangerous heroine of the absurdly, dangerous anti-choice movement (tricks up the sleeves galore):

Excerpt by Todd S. Purdum from Vanity Fair, No. 588, August 2009: More than once in my travels in Alaska, people brought up, without prompting, the question of Palin's extravagant self-regard. Several told me, independently of one another, that they had consulted the definition of "narcissistic personality disorder" in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders--"a pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy"--and thought it fit her perfectly. When Trig was born, Palin wrote an e-mail letter to friends and relatives, describing the belated news of her pregnancy and detailing Trig's condition; she wrote the e-mail not in her own name but in God's, and signed it "Trig's Creator, Your Heavenly Father."
