Mixed Messages (at best)

"The way of a guilty man is perverse;
But as for the pure, his work is right."
Proverbs 21:8

Dan Patrick yesterday:

Dan Patrick last week:

We had originally intended to tear Patrick a new one over this. we read Patrick's comments a second and third time, it doesn't seem crazy to argue that Patrick is discussing different topics. So, speaking for no one but ourselves, we don't necessarily have a problem with cutting Dan Patrick a little bit of slack here. took us multiple readings of Patrick's comments, combined with a detailed knowledge of the context to reach that conclusion. And that's just about the nicest way to read it. And Dan Patrick squandered that level of widespread benefit of the doubt a long time ago. And it's difficult to argue that more hostile takes are necessarily wrong.

Bottom Line: When the charitable explanation is complicated, and the uncharitable one is plausible, that's never a good place to be.
