Is Gov. Blagojevich's Hair an Indicator of Narcissistic Personality Disorder?

Wonkette has the following hot news item about Gov. Blagojevich's hair:

...If you’re going to be a little sad crybaby, whatever, just never go to Scott Ambers:

Gov. Blagojevich’s glossy locks — perfectly sculpted in rain or snow — may be an indication of a sickness beneath his scalp, said one local psychologist.

“It’s all part of managing his image, managing his image of being without a blemish, without a flaw,” said Scott Ambers, who has practiced clinical psychology in the city for more than two decades.

Several psychologists interviewed one day after the governor’s arrest agreed that he might be suffering from an affliction known as narcissistic personality disorder.

“This grandiose sense of self . . . doesn’t carry the implication that [Blagojevich] is a raving lunatic, crazy and out of touch with reality, but it does suggest he has a really overinflated view of his own importance,” Ambers said.

NOTE: For the benefit of readers who have to have everything explained to them, we believe that the above article was intended to be satirical. However, our position is that the crime for which Rod Blogojevich should be thrown into prison is the shamelessly luxuriant head of hair that he flaunts every day, especially to the follically challenged!!!

He also might have anti-social personality disorder because he feels no remorse over his actions and he will "fight till the very end," which basically means he can even pass a lie detector test since people with anti-social personality disorder show no abnormal parasympathetic activity while lying. This is the reason why lie detector tests are not admissible in court since it is inaccurate in a minority of our population. And lastly, personality disorders are not covered by most health insurances so if Gov.Blagojevich wants to get help, he'll have to dish out $100 an hour in private pay therapy sessions (which I doubt he will do since he will likely deny to his last breath that he even has any personality disorder). So by comparison, New York Gov.Elliot Spitzer can be regarded as an honorable public hero with the humility of Gandhi since he has saved the taxpayers much time in costly litigation and distraction of our public media, servers and officials.
