To me, this interview represents every reason why we are so fortunate to have Bobby Petrino as our coach. Houston Nutt is a self-centered, nail-biting, camera watching bum that did more harm to this state and the fan base thereof, than any of the fans that lobbied long and hard then to have him removed. I proclaim boldly that I was a hater, and not a hugger. I was one darksider that did somersaults and laughed with glee the day it was announced he was leaving. In this interview with Dan Patrick, Houston Nutt validates those acts of mirth.
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequeces of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of it's powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state."
