Methuselah's Daughter on Kerry

Methuselah's Daughter, an excellent writer with a mostly apolitical blog, has an interesting take on the mess Kerry's gotten himself into:

It is my conjecture that the failure of the Kerry campaign to adequately deal with the Swift Vets group has a deeper cause than merely the assumption that some nefarious coalition of left-leaning media commentators would see to it the story died a quiet death. ...

Being that John Forbes Kerry may exhibit the classic and not-so-classic symptoms of a pathological liar:

A pathological liar believes in the lies, at least at the time that she or he is talking. Their stories tend to be very dramatic. They often portray the person as being smarter, braver, more attractive, or more interesting than she or he really is. Sometimes people begin to catch onto pathological liars because of obvious flaws in the stories. A fairly young man will describe his heroics in the Vietnam war. A homely woman will talk about all the men who fell instantly in love with her. Sometimes the flaws may be more subtle and it may take a knowledgeable person to find them. Often it happens that a pathological liar will be caught out at a party by someone who really was a pilot, really lived in Africa, or really was a fashion model.

Suspect a pathological liar if:

*the stories seem too dramatic or unrealistic

*the lies seem to serve no purpose except to impress people or

*the lies can easily be shown up

Johnny Four Months resembles... what?
