Confucius Analect of the Week, May 20, 2011

“Because of his lies Duke Wen of Chin must be considered less than upright.  Because of his uprightness Duke Huan of Ch’i did not lie.”  (James R. Ware, Chapter 14, Verse 15)

Are there ten politicians in America who match the uprightness of Duke Huan of Ch’i?  Remember what Mara Liasson of the Fox News All-Stars said on television about a politician some time back: “Lying is a benign accusation.”
