The Cartopotomus Speaks

The Cartopotomus Speaks

I was out riding on my Cartopotomus powered cart when suddenly the Cartopotomus spoke.  It is an extremely rare thing for the Cartopotomus to speak, but when it does it is a profound thing.

“Sir,” the Cartopotomus said.  “I was thinking about this new President you have.  It seems to me that his supporters are always defending him.  This makes no sense to me.”

I thought the Cartopotomus was being na├»ve so I said, “Well of course they do Cartopotomus, they support him and they want to defend his actions.”

The Cartopotomus was quiet for a few minutes and then said, “When I am proud of someone and what they are doing I don’t feel I need to defend them.  I am spending so much time telling others how wonderful they are, or the great things they have done that I don’t see the need to defend them.”

“Hmm, I see what you are getting at Cartopotomus”, I said.

What about you?

And you are so busy defending and telling everyone how wonderful this someone is that you are blinded to the truth.

And how difficult is it to admit that you were foolish for defending that someone?
