10 Feb - Things that make you go...huh?

 A few days ago, I heard a report on the radio about a special meeting being held by a group referred to as the christian coalition. The purpose of their meeting was to attempt to reach a group consensus to put their collective endorsements behind a republican candidate as an alternative to Mitt Romney. Apparently they were concerned that if their vote was split between the various other candidates, they might get stuck with a Mormon president. Nothing especially surprising about that. That's just the usual magic (or idiocy if you prefer) of politics at work. The interesting part was the statement they took from one of the figureheads of this coalition; a preacher with a delightful southern accent and soothing, charismatic voice.

"It's like a fling," he said, "You've you know you've got Mr. dependable, but why not give the tall dark handsome stranger a try. You can always go back to Mr. dependable if it doesn't work out."...



Did the "Christian coalition" just use adultery as their metaphor for trying to find an alternative candidate?


I heard a radio report yesterday, announcing the release of the FBI report on Steve Jobs. They summarized the report as characterizing Mr. Jobs as "a man of strong moral integrity, but willing to twist the truth and distort reality in order to achieve his objectives."

Huh? Isn't that sort of... the OPPOSITE of strong moral Integrity?
