I know this is the current media hype, but has anyone really listened or read in length some of the things she said? I under stand that it took a lot of strength for her to talk about her husbands death or their personal life, but a great deal of the things she says is just trashing other people. She referees to Martin Luther King as "a terrible man" in a segment about JFK's funeral. She then goes on to call Lyndon Johnson "cold and spiteful" asking "can you ever imagine what would happen to the country if Lyndon were president?". She later bashes other world leaders calling Charles de Gaulle both an egomaniac and spiteful. After building up JFK's envy on Winston Churchill she says she felt sorry for him because when he meet him he was "ga-ga" and she felt that he had met him "too late". She then goes on a long tangent about The White House staff and the Kennedy family. As I said I under stand this took a lot out of her to go into some of these topics, but she also seemed to go out of her way to drag a great deal of peoples names in the dirt.
It's always been my theory that you have to have sociopathic and psychopathic traits to become a leader type. Most think of psychos and such as those locked away in crazy houses, many don't realize the number of humans in the spotlight exhibit nihilistic and destructive motives behind their friendly and charismatic personalities.
fully backed bone, sociopaths are all over the fucking place.
[quote= "The Realist satirical magazine circa 1967"]"During that tense flight from Dallas to Washington after the assassination, Jackie inadvertently walked in on Johnson as he was standing over the casket of his predecessor and chuckling…
"Of course, President Johnson is often given to inappropriate response—witness the puzzled timing of his smiles when he speaks of grave matters—but we must also assume that Mrs. Kennedy had been traumatized that day and her perception was likely to have been colored by the tragedy. This state of shock must have underlain an incident on Air Force One which this writer conceives to be delirium, but which Mrs. Kennedy insists she actually saw.
"‘I’m telling you this for the historical record,’ she said, ‘so that people a hundred years from now will know what I had to go through... That man was crouching over the corpse, no longer chuckling but breathing hard and moving his body rhythmically. At first I thought he must be performing some mysterious symbolic rite he’d learned from Mexicans or Indians as a boy. And then I realized—there is only one way to say this—he was literally fucking my husband in the throat. In the bullet wound in the front of his throat. He reached a climax and dismounted. I froze. The next thing I remember, he was being sworn in as the new president.’
