After reading Weinberger's Law:
whatever people most emphasize about themselves is the biggest lie they tell. If your boss tells you that he's all about teamwork, then he's all about himself. If Nixon says that he is not a crook, then he is.
I went back to what I wrote on Orkut for my profile:
I'm somewhere between an academic geek and a normal person.
Presumably, that statement is the biggest lie that I tell. It's not clear what to make of that.
Also, for what it's worth, I've never believed that George Bush is "compassionate." There was no compassion in the glint in his eye during the debates when he supported the death penalty and asserted that marriage is between a man and a woman. And I agree with David that John Kerry's claim to be just a regular guy probably is another instance of Weinberger's cynical law.
