Salman Khurshid's strange logic

Salman Khurshid is known for his perverted logic. In an interview with Times of India, he has made the following observation:

"He  (Natwar Singh) has indicated that the decision (on Volcker report regarding food for oil scam)  was hurried because he was too close to Sonia Gandhi and then fingers may point at Sonia Gandhi?

That is right. If you are close to your leader. If you are far away from your leader then there is no problem, but if you are close to your leader, what perceptions get created and therefore you have to do damage control. You can't allow if something happens and if I am seen as close to my leader, I must be dispensed with because we need to protect our leader. What are leaders there for? Leaders have to be protected, in the faith and confidence that if you are right your leader will turn around and protect you as well. If it is a choice between you and your leader, your leader must be protected first and your duty becomes to protect your leader."

It is usually said that leaders exist to protect their followers. Here the shameless follower claims with all obsequiousness at his command that followers should protect their leaders. One cannot become more slavish. Of course, Khurshid must have meant that the reference was only to Sonia Gandhi's leadership.
