Haven’t We Seen This Tactic Before?

It seems….familiar somehow:

Last night the prince issued a strongly-worded denial, with Buckingham Palace saying ‘any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue’.

Hmmm, now where have I…

*snaps fingers*

Legend has it that LBJ, in one of his early congressional campaigns, told one of his aides to spread the story that Johnson’s opponent fucked pigs. The aide responded “Christ, Lyndon, we can’t call the guy a pigfucker. It isn’t true.” To which LBJ supposedly replied “Of course it ain’t true, but I want to make the son-of-a-bitch deny it.”

Ahhhh, yes…

    The answer to such bizarre allegations is not a denial but a question. Publicly. “Are you a natural halfwit or is this a practice session?”

    But the victims have to be believed. There is no corroboration. Guilty until proven innocent.

      Ah, I remember those days. These days you are guilty when the press decide you are and the public, being ignorant, believe them.

    Why “underage minors”? Repeated descriptive words often disguise panic.

    And the statement says, “Any suggestion of impropriety…is categorically untrue” – a sophisticated way of saying nothing at all. (How can a suggestion be untrue? Do they mean inference?)

    Is this nonsense intended to distract from his nephew’s paternity issue, which has become interesting again to some?

      There’s also his own paternity issue, an even more sensitive topic – a racing certainty some may say.

    Apparently she was 17. Only underage in certain states in the US and above the age of consent in many places in Europe.
    So if PA poked her in London was she an underage minor or a consenting adult?

    With the Merkins forcing their views on the rest of the world. Then even having nookie legally in the UK can have you put inside in the US. They come an kidnap you and take you to stand, what we can laughingly call a trial, Won’t that make for some interesting visits.
