…or “Chum in the Water”
Most of us are familiar with the dangers of pandering to dictators bent on world domination, of the Legacy of Neville Chamberlain, and so on. It’s very simple. Show the enemy that you’re a chump, that it can control you, and you get pounced.
I think that Mitt Romney is probably a very nice guy, trying to do the right things. Doing the right things, and getting people to like you, are however very different, often contradictory, goals.
When he decided he needed to hire him some womens (you know, so people couldn’t accuse him of not hiring enough women, because hiring based on a person’s potential value to the company without regard to sex or race, would be….stupid? Unfair? It wouldn’t please the communists?) he apparently failed to understand that he was throwing chum in the water. Condition white. Sharks cannot resist a little chum. When the feeding frenzy erupted last week then, no one has any excuse for not having predicted it. Sharks have a habit of acting like sharks.
HE HAS BINDERS FULL OF WOMEN!!!! HE HAS BINDERS FULL OF WOMEN!!!! (“What kind of pervert is this guy!?” they don’t say). I wonder if he has (GASP) BINDERS FULL OF BLACK PEOPLE TOO! Oh, the horror– someone trying to hire black people. RACIST!!! He wants to put y’all in BINDERS!
No, Grasshopper; don’t pander to insanity. That way insanity will have nothing on you. You pander to it and it gets encouraged. Evil will try to nudge you into doing stupid things. You’ll want to do them to make it happy, to get along, to take some weight off your shoulders, but it’s always a trick.
So I’m making fun of the evil-crazy, right back, but the important thing is to be able to see it and watch it. It can’t stand the light of day.
