Hypocrisy is masquerading; pretending to be who you aren't to conceal who you really are to fool others with dark intentions.
Strategies include agreeing with the last person you've talked to.
It's kinda like ending a sentence with a preposition.
Election 2008 comes to mind.
HRC dodged bullets in Bosnia to prove she's tough enough to lead the armies of the greatest empire on the planet; or, uh, she dreamed about it or, uh, she was having a flashback.
JM trots out folks from nursing homes to prove he's a conservative; and, uh, his press conferences are starting to look like alumni meetings for AARP charter members which, uh, may be where his true values, uh, reside.
BHO is, uh, I don't really know; but, dang, he sounds neat; and, uh, hey, he's spent a lot of time dodging bullets in Chicago so methinks he could become one of those liberals converted to conservatism after mugging.
HRC said she was named after someone who didn't do what she said he did when she said he did it but he did do it later which was why she was named after him before he did what he did which exposes a reincarnating pathology because she was born a few years before he did what he did which was why she was named after him for doing what he did which is logical, uh, in her weltanschauung, uh, in that...
JM is a cracker.
BHO, uh, well, hmm, has a name which rhymes and reminds us of America's greatest, uh, well, hmm, current enemies; and, uh, well, hmm, it's just a testimony to our diversity.
HRC's position on Iraq is consistently inconsistent, flexible, and evolving; depending upon the most recent polls, focus groups, and audiences.
JM is all for it for as long as it takes; or until the parousia.
BHO has always been against it because he doesn't want those chickens to, uh, roost; or whatever...
RMN and WJC may be their real mentors.
Their mantra: "You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time. Not bad odds!"
Getting back to hypocrisy, Jesus said, "They come in sheep's clothing."
Dylan sang, "The enemy I see wears a cloak of decency."
But that's enough about mainline clergy for today.
Blessings and Love!
