4.  Selfie-Aggrandizing:

The photograph released by the White House yesterday marking Nelson Mandela’s passing, showing Barack Obama in poseur mode safely and pseudo-solemnly ensconced in Mandela’s Robben Island jail cell makes you mentally search for a term of speech that would be the opposite of “prisoner of conscience.” Bird-murderer applies, of course, but is not the one I'm looking for.  I've heard British friends use "tosser," to cover all manner of stupid, crude, beneath contempt behavior.  Let's try "tosser."  And again.
