A refresher

on the meaning of "hypocrisy", in honor of President's Day, when Presidents were apparently honorable enough to understand, even back then, that corporations are not persons, and that wars don't pay for themselves:
"1. a pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess.2. a pretense of having some desirable or publicly approved attitude.3. an act or instance of hypocrisy."
