This is a power, my friends, that could be used for good or evil. I choose to use it for good. … It’s the elephant in the room. Why deny it? That would be false humility, and there’s nothing that grates on me more than a person that engages in false humility and tries to laugh it off. … I’m not going to sit here and deny what you all know.
