If you are there to receive an award and your name is called out, receive it, give thanks and move on... but to state any views other that that, is what turns some people off. Fortunately, those at home watching on their tv's are NOT a captive audience and simply can turn the channel.
But I mean, you wouldn't want Steve Ballmer or Bill Gates to introduce the Universal version of MS Office for the Mac at MacWorld and then go on to tout Window's "Vista" as the best OS to date. You'd have a riot at the Moscone Center...
You wouldn't tout the benefits of an aggrarian economic lifestyle that can only prosper with the use of slaves at a NAACP convention...
You wouldn't sell Adolf Hitler's book "Mein Kemp" at a Holocaust Museum bookstore...
I mean, there just are some things, if you had any sense, you just wouldn't do. It's not, I hate to say it, PC!
I mean, you wouldn't vote a highly qualified new commander who wrote the book on insurgencies to head the forces in Iraq and then tell him his plan sucks and the troop increase this new commander requested is meeting with every road block politically possible, but the politicians wish him all the best in his new assignment and er, oh wait, the newly elected democratic party majority, did just that. Scratch that AND "Here's your sign!"
