No one is surprised that Paste doesn’t have time to go thinking up lies that he then has to remember, right?

He might think up a JOKE that involves lying to you, but jokes are more fun than torturing the facts until it doesn’t look like you just pooped on the Mayor’s big moment.

And so Paste has learned that valuable lesson that so many of his contemporaries and 99% of politicians have never learned.

Blurt out the truth and own it.  Own that stupid, thoughtless truth down to the bone.  And yell it through a microphone so that anyone who wants to bust you on it just has to suck it up… and probably lie to their boss about why they didn’t stop you in the first place.
