Reading Between The Lines.

"I have decided to step down from my position in order to spend more time with my family."

A simple political statement which one will read many times over the course of a few years. What does it really mean?

a. "I pissed someone important off and am stepping down to avoid getting my ass fired."
b. "I want to spend more time with my mistress."
c. "I want to spend more time with my wife because she just found out about my mistress and damn is she mad."
d. "Strippers have loose lips."
e. "I need to fly to somewhere without a reciprocal extradition policy before everything I've done becomes public. I can spend lots of time with my new Paraguyan family and not get extradited to face prosecution. Its a win-win."
f. "Public masterbation is, apparently, a crime. Who knew?"
g. "I thought the cop was a prostitute."
h. "Officer, she said she was 16."
i. "I want to spend more time with my family."

You know the scene it's very hum-drum
And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom"...

j. It will look very bad on the party if a senior minister is still in goverment while undergoing trial for embezzlement, and that could reduce my chances for cabinet position in the next goverment.

Love is the drug, and I'm a junkie.
