Decisions, decisions…

Calpundit asks: “Do we want to be linked, or respected?
Actually, he doesn’t. What he really asked was, “Do we want to be liked or respected?” — proceeding then into a discussion of American policy in Iraq.
Frankly, I liked my misunderstanding of his question better. So which is it, fellow bloggers? Would you rather be linked, or respected?
Yes, it’s a trick question. Answer anyway.
