Major League Loonies

Quick now, who said the following? "They love me, all my people with me, they love me all.''

No, it wasn't Charlie Sheen. It was the delusional Libyan.

Is it just me, or are the two sounding strangely similar these days?

Update: Sheen's spiel about his "goddesses" sounds not unlike the palaver of another charismatic Charlie. He once opined re his circle of enthralled chicks:

Our family is a circle of love and strength. With every birth and every union, the circle grows. Every joy shared adds more love. Every obstacle faced together makes the circle stronger.
He also said something that echoes Andy Warhol's prescient line about fame--and pertains to the debauched, hubristic libertine (who looks awful--his lifestyle has clearly taken its toll on his looks) currently making the rounds on TV:
You know, a long time ago being crazy meant something. Nowadays everybody's crazy.
Well, maybe not everybody. But the first half of that thought is sure on the money.

Update: From the Mayo Clinic site, here's a list of symptoms associated with the "manic" phase of bipolar disorder:


■Extreme optimism

■Inflated self-esteem

■Poor judgment

■Rapid speech

■Racing thoughts

■Aggressive behavior

■Agitation or irritation

■Increased physical activity

■Risky behavior

■Spending sprees or unwise financial choices

■Increased drive to perform or achieve goals

■Increased sex drive

■Decreased need for sleep

■Inability to concentrate

■Careless or dangerous use of drugs or alcohol

■Frequent absences from work or school

■Delusions or a break from reality (psychosis)

■Poor performance at work or school
