Many years ago, I developed this theory, and called it Madrak’s Law of Similarity. The basis was this: When you sing in the shower, you only hear yourself sing the right notes, not the wrong ones.
Last night, I was explaining this to Make It Plain’s Mark Thompson when I was on his show. He’d asked me what I thought of Obama’s State of the Union address, so first I had to explain Madrak’s Law of Similarities.
“So when certain people listen to Obama, they only hear the parts that sound like he’s a progressive. They literally tune out the rest,” I said. (I noted that Obama put in a line about Social Security cuts that wasn’t in the version released to the public.)
You’re dating someone who’s a lying bastard, yet you tell yourself he loves you? Madrak’s Law of Similiarities! Useful, yes?
