What is so admirable about the guy? What does he do that is so great? He's an Imperial sellout and a horrible father. I just don't get it. Can anyone enlighten me?

Everybody loves the village idiot, as his stupidity makes them feel smarter.

I can't believe he was surprised I joined the Stormcloaks. I told him that the Imperials tried to kill me. Guess he might be a bit slow. :/

When he gave the axe back to me, I should have split his head with it.

Um, because he's a competent ruler who's response to "A Dragon attacked Nearby" is "Get my troops out there to defend my people."

Also, he sends his best and most trusted soldier to take a team and investigate a Dragon sighting, isn't corrupt or a puppet, and out of all the Jarls is the one who actually seems to have his **** together.

Christ, are you dwarves or are you elves? If you think Hell has too many demons, then you kill them till the population reaches an acceptable number.

This.

And LOL at you calling him an "imperial sellout" just because he's not on the same side as you. I'm pro-Imperial and still respect pro-Stormcloaks (somewhat), but come on. By your logic, I could call Stormcloak aligned Jarls "Stormcloak sellouts" and it would be a-okay.

He has swagger.
