A class of stupid thing not to say, courtesy of Brit Hume
We all say stupid things. All the time. Got to be expected. And if your job is to go on TV, you’ll probably find yourself saying some of those stupid things on TV. By watching the errors of others who haplessly say stupid things on TV, we can make ourselves aware of more classes of things that are stupid to say, and, with luck, we may ourselves avoid saying that class of stupid thing in the future. In this fashion, watching television can be educational.
Brit Hume has made me aware that one class of stupid thing you can say is to brag that your religion makes you spiritually better-equipped to handle the emotional consequences of infidelity. (Hat tip Ta-Nehisi Coates.)
