It's how you play the cards. And there is no judging a man on how he plays his cards. But when the politician, the corporate titan, the general or anyone else who drinks the Kool-aid expects others to believe their schtick, then they are being insulting. Sure, be a paid fireman instead of the proper volunteer fireman, take the money and run. No judging that. But don't pretend you are doing us a favor, and expect adulation. That's going too far.
