Better a Whore than a Slut,

I am of course not talking about women, but men here. Specifically Tony Blair who is the slut in question. From Talking Points Memo:

JACQUES CHIRAC dealt a blow to Tony Blair’s attempt to heal the wounds between the US and Europe last night by saying that the Prime Minister had won nothing for supporting the war against Iraq. As Mr Blair used a keynote speech to present Britain as a “bridge across the Atlantic”, President Chirac doubted whether anyone could play the “honest broker”. Speaking before he visits London on Thursday, he said that it was not in the nature of this Administration to return favours.
Mr Blair suffered another setback when Colin Powell, the US Secretary of State and the administration figure most trusted by Europe, resigned. There were doubts over whether his successor, possibly Condoleezza Rice, the National Security Adviser, would be as accommodating.

M Chirac, speaking to British journalists, including The Times, soon after General Powell’s announcement, revealed that he had urged Mr Blair to demand the relaunch of the Middle East peace process in return for backing the war.

“Well, Britain gave its support but I did not see anything in return. I’m not sure it is in the nature of our American friends at the moment to return favours systematically.”

Josh then goes on to question if the word 'poodle' applies. Poodles of course are above what Tony Blair has become. Dogs are infamously loyal and sometimes fawning, if you feed them and give them affection. Therefore a poodle is at worst a henchman or a servant. Below henchman is a whore, who owes no loyalty but at least can claim the honor of a thief: that they stay bought as long as they are paid. Beneath even a whore is a slut. A slut is one who throws themselves at another chasing after them, when the other uses them, abuses them, and discards them without any consideration in return.

Therefore in this world, if you must serve then at least demand some sort of recognition and become a servant. If no one will take you as a master, at least have the pride to be an honest thief or an honest whore or an honest mercenary and be loyal enough to stay bought when you are getting paid. Above all else, avoid becoming a slut that throws one's self away at the feet of others only to have them despise them.

Better by far to be a free person beholden to none but keeping your word to all. However if you are forced by circumstance to take service, then serve well and honorably. Always avoid throwing yourself away, because in the end no one respects someone who just throws themselves away for nothing.

And that my friends is the tenor of the discussion between Chirac and Blair.
