Yet another example of why political toadies inevitably hurt the ones they love. Unfortunately, the political appointees I’ve personally known have, by and large, been people who were more concerned about appearance than substance, to the point of sacrificing personal and professional ethics in a misguided attempt to make their uppers look good. What happens more often is their behavior brings unwanted and unearned shame on those same superiors. If people were simply honest and true to the values we’re (supposed to be) taught as children, these types of situations would be few and far between. I’m constantly amazed at how much moral relativism exists in opposition to this way of living. I suppose people would call me simplistic and naive; I call that preferable to dishonesty and power-mongering.
