Maybe Anthony Weiner should have spun the "sexting" by saying he was sending "body-scans" like all the naked pics the TSA takes. If I stop calling myself an "alcoholic" and start calling myself a "liquor nerd" it'll be more socially acceptable. "Don't be mad at me for being drunk, I'm just collecting all this whiskey in my tum-tum. I'm just a real liquor nerd expanding my collection. My liver is my display case."
|No, but it requires the right choice of words to create|
the truth you want. Now gimme that sweet sweet land, Joseph.
I could revolutionize the way all my horrifying and selfish behavior is viewed if I just use the right words. Buying guns is now "defense spending." I'll definitely stop giving money to charity in the interest of "reducing entitlement spending." Talking about my actions in government double-speak is going to revolutionize my life! Granted, I won't be doing anything different, I'll just seem more professional doing it.
Who says you can't learn from the government?
