    “Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles, who really mean it.”
    -Mark Twain

        1. No one ever likes anyone smarter than themself.

          No mistake in that last word.

          I hated playing stupid all my life.

          But if I didn’t, I actually tended to scare people
          and I hated THAT even more.

          Yet it always had the long term effect
          [letting them think THEY were smarter]
          of those others becoming totally obnoxious
          and condescending, so I let it go and stayed ‘stupid’ anyway.

            I liked a recent Max Keiser where he showed a guy with a tatoo on across chest.
            It had a arrow pointing up to the young mean’s head,

            with a caption underneath that read:

            I’AM WITH STUPID!

          2. Oh Robert, so old……….
            You know the writers’ axiom that
            truth is stranger than fiction (?)

            Twain took it a pace with this bit of ‘truth:’
            That… fiction has to make sense…………
            truth doesn’t………….
            No quote marks because I am too tired
            to make much sense of my own 🙁

          3. It is appropriate, though,
            because the heart should over-rule the head–
            best case is acting and thinking in concert.

            What do my CIA ‘friends’ here know about
            “chakra” energy ?
            Yes, you know I have been studying it.

  2. And isn’t this just a sorry state of affairs, a comedic state of affairs actually. These politicians are so used to the sycophancy of the media that they don’t even know how to answer or deal with a real and serious question anymore. The sad thing is most people don’t even realise it or if they do they ignore it.
