Here I was telling Carl I wanted to be respectful to both Obama and Romney and not use nasty nicknames for them.
Then Jack Welch goes and rears his sulfurous head, and spews bile on the public debate.
I've told this story before. Back in my Young Entrepreneur phase (thankfully I woke up before I was competely destroyed) I read a lot of business magazines, and the most "admired" C.E.O. in America was the head of General Electric, Jack Welch.
So I eagerly stayed up one night to watch the man on Charlie Rose.
And not five minutes into the show, my skin started to crawl. I'm telling you, I've never had such a visceral reaction to anyone from a T.V. show. I wanted to reach through the screen and strangle the guy. I expected his face to split in half and a horned little demon to emerge.
I mean, I really, really disliked this guy. If he was lying in a road with trucks roaring by, I wouldn't help him up.
Can't explain it.
I just think the man is evil.
Why can't everyone see that? He's the real picture of Dorian Gray. It's right there on his face.
But what he says is so odious, it wouldn't matter what he looked like or how he said it.
(Sorry. I just don't like the guy. Have I mentioned that?)
