  •  buyer's remorse for WHAT? (0+ / 0-)

    Because they're all a-scared of some pasty-faced little sociopath whose photo ought to adorn a dart board (with suction-cup darts to make it even funnier) and with his nose as the bull's eye?  

    What are they scared of?  That he'll show up at their offices with a hard hat and reflective vest on, claiming to be from the telephone company and wanting to attach "this little thing" to their lines?  

    •  Nothing to do with O'Keefe directly (0+ / 0-)

      Sadly, Schiller demostrated some poor judgment for someone in his role; and there is now a lot of public commentary swirling around - not a good thing for someone in the role he expects to assume with the Aspen Institute. It is what it is.

      •  It's people being scared of a humbug. (0+ / 0-)

        Good God!, the degree of social cowardice around this is just appalling.  

        "Oh, but someone might think.....!"  

        Who's this "someone" who "might think" something bad, and why should anyone care?  The chattering classes just love putting on the air of Victorian opprobrium and taking offense in a Most Theatrical Way, don't they?   Drama! drama! drama!, all the jeers and tears at six!  

        It's not as if he picks his nose at business meetings or runs around grabbing at women's boobies.  Or shows up in Congress smelling like alcohol and carrying a flask in his coat.  Or signs orders to torture people.  

        Sheesh!  With that kind of attitude going around, I could make a fortune selling Fart Filters for people to put in their rear ends so they don't offend anyone at work after lunch!  (And now, New and Improved Fart Filters!, with built-in acoustical muffler!  The ultimate in personal discretion!)
