I was not calling *ANYONE* who agreed with the PEP "a
lapdog", my statement was more specific. I called Chris a
"lapdog of" and a "rabbid fanboy" -- Guido was merely the
"implied Satan".

Of course i'm not suggesting that Guido is a malevolent
godlike being, his inclusion in the expression is merely a
incidental result of Chris's idol worship of "everything Guido".
Although, to be fair, I guess i may have embellished a bit
by using the word "rabbid", and for that i apologize.

But to respond to your assertion that i'm being
hypocritical: nonsense. Stating facts is *NEVER*
hypocritical. Just because a fact happens to be an
"inconvenient truth" does not invalidate it's truthfulness.

Chris (or anybody for that matter) can choose to be a free
thinking individual, or a brainwashed disciple, the choice is
his. Even intelligent people (like Chris) can fall under the
spell of a "implicit cult of personality".
