It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

The Circle is Complete

The great Greek medical aficionado Hippocrates was made famous by the oath that bears his name.  Part of this oath is to, "Never do harm to anyone."  His lesser known half brother Hypocritese is famous for saying, "People who say one thing and do another are fucking douchebags."

Al Gore now has the distinction of having pissed off both.  By endorsing MOE Pampers, the popular vote loser, Goredilocks has harmed Democracy, and the Democratic Party, all while managing to make himself look like an ass.  Good job Al.

But don't take my word on it.  Let's get it straight from the ass's mouth.  

"A vote is not just a piece of paper.  A vote is a human voice; a statement of human principle.  And we should not let those voices be silenced.  Not for today, not for tomorrow, not for as long as the country's laws and democratic institutions let us stand and fight to let those voices count."

But apparently this ass has no problem endorsing the candidate who was not his party's popular vote leader, and who was handed presumptive nominee status by the DNC's flushing of fair reflection, and the silencing of the voters of Michigan and Florida.

With one endorsement Al Gore has simultaneously invalidated himself and the Democratic Party.  Good job Al!  

High five!
