2 : a delusional mental disorder that is marked by feelings of personal omnipotence and grandeur
Of course this word is much too progressive for Glenn, having first been used in 1887, but I don't know the Revolutionary War era word for what he is.
The Examiner reports on the latest symptoms.
Glenn Beck evidently believes the Purple Heart is some progressive invention which distorted a previous award called the "Badge of Merit."
Beck plans to give out his own Badge of Merits at a rally he is holding at the Lincoln Memorial on the anniversary of MLK's famous "I Have a Dream Speech." Beck essentially will be playing the part of the military in handing out his own military distinctions.
What's your opinion? Is he best defined by the first definition of "megalomania" or the second?
