To return evil for good is devilish; to return good for good is human; to return good for evil is Divine - Alistair Begg
I do agree that Penner was needlessly harsh with Lisa and Skupin, and he was at least partially wrong about Skupin. Yes, he got no votes aganist him, but had Tandang lost one challenge, it would have been him or RC who would have been gone, and when Penner won immunity, Skupin was going to the jury until Lisa tried to blindside Malcolm. Skupin should have challenged that, I think being quiet and allowing Penner to discredit one of his main arguments was his biggest mistake in an otherwise decent final tribal performance.
Final speech aside, I still do hold Penner in high regards. He's always been somewhat of a jerk, but I'd like to think he's a good guy inside. Back on Cook Islands, when he gained notereity by in his words betraying every single person in the game, there was a touching scene I've never forgetten when the sight of a small baby bird brought him to tears. Then this season, he was so kind to Dana as she was forced from the game. None of us know him, so we really don't know what his true colors are, but personally, I'd like to think the nicer Penner is the real Penner.
Lisa betrayed Penner to further herself in the game. Nothing wrong with that, it's a game they are all trying to win, not their real life outside the game. But there were consequences for her betrayal: Penner outing her past TV career at Tribal Council & being a bit bitter. Nothing wrong there either. Payback is a b*tch.
I'm not a fan of bitter juries anymore than anyone else, but they all went there for the same reason: To win. Not to be betrayed, smile & say: "Oh well. Who cares. I'd love you to have the Million Dollars instead of me." They make the choice to be cutthroat. They need to be prepared to reap the consequences. It's also part of the game.

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person
You could be the juiciest, most ripe peach, but there is still going to be someone who doesn't like peaches.
Still, Penner had no reason to say what he did. It had nothing - absolutely nothing - to do with the game. It was petty. Lisa handled it FAR more gracefully than I ever would have.
