What bugs me is that he truly does have insight into human behavior, and when he applies it to people who are having problems, he does a tremendous service. But I agree he's turning into a meglomaniac, not content to excel in his own niche, but also to try to elbow out others who own their niches. Remember a few seasons ago when he tried to be the leading diet guru? Then the leading relationship guru? Then the children's rights crusader? Now he's really running off the rails with politics because he adds nothing to the debate. We've got enough shouting heads on cable news, we don't need more on Dr. Phil's show.
