    •  I said it's not nice. Which is not to (3+ / 0-)

      say that's not a natural human reaction.

      On the other hand, I doubt that anything people who aren't one of them say or do makes any kind of impression. Self-centered people mimic and play off each other. You can see that in the video.

      If a person takes on the attitude and mannerisms of the person with whom they are conversing, it is very difficult to perceive that they aren't just alike.
      Think back to Dubya walking hand in hand with the Saudi.  Much sport was made of that.  But, what it showed was that Dubya conformed his behavior to whomever he was with.  That's why he was a person people would want to have a beer with, even though he claimed to have stopped drinking alcohol. Laura, no doubt, modeled behavior for him.

      If one is used to dealing with people who follow one's lead, then that's what one expects people to do and it makes perfect sense to tell them, over and over again, just as they have to be told to stay on the straight and narrow.

      That's why I've got my new slogan for conservatives:

      " (insert name) WORKS WELL WITH HANDLERS"

      I think we need to understand these people because, if they are not understood and handled appropriately, they have a tendency to be reckless and get into a lot of mischief.  Sort of like a two-year old.
