Attention Whore Knut Turning Into Polar Bear Psychopath

Total psycho.Hey guess what, people? Hillary Clinton is still trying to “woo” superdelegates by sending threatening letters to Nancy Pelosi; Barack Obama continues to shake his head sadly, with dignity; and John McCain wants Democrats to vote for him. In other words, boring news rules the Internet today, which is why we bring you this important update on the increasingly fragile emotional state of the bear who drove the National Zoo’s Butterstick to experiment with hard drugs.

Knut, once the most adorable furred creature in the media since John McCain showed reporters his balls at a romantic Sedona getaway, is now giving Norma Desmond a run for her money in the fame-crazed has-been category. Here’s what one of his keepers at the Berlin Zoo had to say:

“He is addicted to the whole show, the human adulation. It is not healthy. He actually cries out or whimpers if he sees that there is not a spectator outside his enclosure ready to ooh and aah at him. When the zoo had to shut because of black ice everywhere he howled until staff members stood before him and calmed him down.”

Ha ha, in other words Knut is Bill Clinton in a cheap bear suit.
