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

There You Go Again...

So Pampers flip flopped on public financing.  Why is everyone so shocked?  The douche was mixing the batter for this waffle back in March.  You want the straight dope on this?  I'll give you the straight dope.  What did we just find out from the Pampers campaign's money changers?  That he just had his weakest month of fundraising of the year.  

This is how you spin Pampers style.  Your fundraising numbers are weakening.  Rather than taking public financing and allowing the McCain campaign, and the media, to have the opportunity to speculate that his taking public financing is a sign that Camp Pampers is having a hard time raising money, he can project a sense of bravado and declare that he will have no problem raising the bucks.  So instead he looks like a hypocritical douche.  But because this is Pampers he is saying that he's rejecting public financing as he feels the system is broken.  But taking money from lobbyists and coroporate interests while lying about it is new politics.  This is just the kind of crap that makes my valve close.

No one said that Pampers was the brightest bulb in the box.  And no one is going to be accusing him of being honest either.
