You know the old Chinese proverb: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”
You may also know the George W. Bush translation, from a 2002 speech in Nashville: “There’s an old saying in Tennessee – I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee – that says, fool me once, shame on … shame on you. Fool me … you can’t get fooled again.”
