So I'm talking to a friend about somebody that we both know who's world renowned for reneging on things, specifically on his latest renege. Then the party whom I'm speaking to, says in clear and unequivocal terms, "I not like dat." Alrighty. Does the defense rest too, lol. Why, dear reader, do people misconstrue that you're alluding to a flaw in their personality in this type of conversation? What brought this particular topic up was a news item that I saw on tv about how effective running negative campaign ads against political opponents have proven themselves to be in a number of past elections. Nothing like catapulting bubonic goats over the political opponent's castle walls. Does a negative allegation against a political opponent hit a similar "but I not like dat," nerve with the voter. Thusly, to prove that I not like dat beyond a reasonable doubt, I embrace the unsubstantiated allegation against the opponent at full face value. I no like catch the common cold from the tainted opponent or something along those lines.
