Channeling FDR

Apparently Governor Walker thinks he’s on par with FDR. He’s holding a “fireside chat” right now. Right. I’ve seen your record, Governor, you are no FDR.

What is a “fireside chat?” They began in 1929 when then Governor Roosevelt, in his first term as Governor of New York, “would occasionally address the citizens of New York directly. He appealed to them for help getting his agenda passed.”

So, my question is, what do they call it when an individual has grandiose ideas about themselves?
Nevermind, I answered my own question. It’s called megalomania.
