Casey Anthony's Disturbingly Vapid Video Diary

 

REVIEWING THE NEWS:  Casey Anthony video blog debuts, and it’s a shocker… in that it’s so booooring.

 

By Robbie Woliver

A still image from disturbed Casey Anthony's unsettlingly ho-hum video-diary debut. 

 

In a stunning, just-released, almost  four-and-a-half-minute video diary, Casey Anthony, who many believe murdered her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, provides a psycho performance that is more exceptional for its mundaneness than for providing any real insight. To the majority of the blood-lustful public, Anthony, now sporting a short blonde bob and glasses, represents the worst miscarriage of justice in history, after she was found “not guilty” after a six-week sensational trial. While many believe the evidence was overwhelming that she was guilty, the trial,  if nothing else, proved that she was a sociopathic liar at best, and most likely a murderer.

I have written a book about childhood mental disorders (Alphabet Kids) and have also co-written the memoir of attempted murderess Amy Fisher (If I Knew Then...), so I have insight into how a sociopath thinks, and Anthony is a prime example of the cluelessness associated with pathological mental illness. Anthony, according to polls, is “the most hated person in America” (wow, that takes a lot), so the thought that she would even put together a video blog is astounding. The banality of Anthony’s diary is really what's most frightening.

“I have something that is finally mine,” she says about her computer, seemingly forgetting she once had a beautiful daughter. “I hate being on camera,” the 25-year-old whines in that slacker-ish monotone of her generation. I seem to recall that she sure liked being on camera when it was a hot-body contest or she was showing off another boyfriend. At no time does Anthony make mention of her daughter Caylee, who was first reported missing in July 2008 and whose decomposed body was found five months later. She doesn’t discuss her thousand days in jail, nor the “trial of the century.”

The diary itself is meandering and incredibly insipid. She doesn’t once defend herself or try to mitigate the palpable hatred for her. We learned at the trial that she’s a pathological liar, so maybe the fact that she vapidly discusses... nothing is actually good, because it doesn’t waste her time. This blog, supposedly filmed in October 2011, is all about her petty interests (filming her diary), and that’s the Casey Anthony we have grown to know and despise. She warns that this might be the first of others. So far, it’s not even train-wreck pop culture. It’s Abnormal Psych 101. 

 

IN OTHER WORDS: Cannot wait to watch Nancy Grace tonight.
