“You can’t say you love your country and hate your government.”

Saturday, 12 May 2007

This quote—You can’t say you love your country and hate your government.—is from William Jefferson Clinton. Wow, just wow.

Since this idea, if not the vessel from which it squirted, has regained some cachet it’s time to revisit it. Let’s see how much mileage it’s got.

You can’t say you love medical science and hate the doctor who killed your mom because he’s incompetent and performs surgery drunk.
You can’t say you love having someone take your trash away each week but you hate the garbage man who keeps throwing your bin in the bushes.
You can’t say you love education and hate the teacher who molested your 7 year-old.
You can’t say you love pornography and hate taking the money shot.
You can’t say you love swimming and hate being eaten by alligators.
You can’t say you love asdf and hate qwerty.

Do you know what Bill Clinton’s IQ is? I don’t but I can tell you the IQ of anyone who even for a moment considered that it could possibly be 180 is no better than half that.

And do not forget–

You can’t say you love the Internet and hate Sedition·com.
