I still remember Robin Williams’ Clinton bit:
“The French are looking at America right now like, ‘What? Did he fuck a chicken?!'”
If “it’s just sex!!!” in 1995, then it’s “just sex” in 2005, and this year and every year forever.
THEY made that rule. Make your enemy play by his rules — remember your Alinsky.
And remember this, too:
Every. Mic. Is. Always. On.
If your host/interviewer tries to engage you in off-the-record banter about anyone, or any dodgy topic, smirk and nod politely but not agreeably.
They will think you’re retarded, but you’re actually the smart one.
UPDATE: Scott Adams writes…
Well, just read the whole thing.
UPDATE: Another must-read — who said…
Even presidents have private lives. It is time to stop the pursuit of personal destruction and the prying into private lives and get on with our national life.
Our country has been distracted by this matter for too long, and I take my responsibility for my part in all of this. That is all I can do.
Now is the time — in fact, it is past time to move on.
