    that there's a high incidence of traumatic head injury and sociopathy.  Romney was in a coma from his car accident.

    •  Really? (0+ / 0-)

      That is very interesting.  Reminds me of one interesting hypothesis I heard about W, fetal alcohol syndrome.  The two are so similar in their social failures, despite having dissimilar skill sets in so many other ways (smarts, work ethic, and such).  Is brain injury the common denominator?

      •  Not necessarily a common (0+ / 0-)

        denominator as it's not there all the time, but head injuries are extremely common among sociopaths.  A surprising number of serial killers suffered head injuries and were in brief comas when they were young.  Being a serial killer and a sociopath are not, of course, synonymous.

      months ago.

      But since then I've learned too much about his behaviors and attitudes PRIOR to that accident.

      Willard has been a flaming jackass most, if not all, of his life.  The coma was just an intermission rendering him harmless to other people for a short while.  

      Willard's idea of "fun" (leading a gang of boys in a scissors attack on someone whose hair he disapproved of...pushing his kids' faces into their morning cereal bowls...enjoying firing people from their jobs) reveals an ugly sadistic streak.
