More On Morons
Jeff casts around for anyone who hasn't completely lost his or her mind and therefore still remembers that one might, in theory, be able to separate being a scoutmaster at home from playing a game on an island. He also wisely mentions in passing that Lill may have been a scoutmaster, but that a number of other people are parents in their day-to-day lives, so Lill's obligation to act as a role model can hardly be considered any greater than that of anyone who has children of his own (uh, Andrew) whose moral development is his responsibility. If Andrew can tell his kids that in normal circumstances, he wouldn't lie and plot against people, Lill can presumably explain the same things to her scouts. A brave Trish hops right in on Lill's behalf to similar effect, saying that she thinks you can totally separate home life and island life, and she thinks the idea that you have to play Survivor like a scout just because you're a scout at home is completely preposterous. She adds that she thinks Lill played a great game, that it's impossible to play without doing some lying, and that Lill did probably try to be as nice as she could within the boundaries of trying to win: "I don't think it's really fair to say that she was wearing a scout uniform, so therefore she should let herself get kicked out." Word. Jeff gives props to Lill's own comment at the final tribal council to the effect that you either play the game, or you get sent home. It's a fine point to be directed at the whiners who had trouble throughout the season with other people's playing the game, which whiners shall remain nameless because they are Rupert.
