    Blackadder: Tell me, do you ever stop bullying and shouting at the lower orders?

    Wellington: (Shouting) Never! There's only one way to win a campaign: shout, shout and shout again!

    Blackadder: You don't think then that inspired leadership and tactical ability have anything to do with it?

    Wellington: (Shouting) No! It's all down to shouting. WAAGGHH!

    I taught music at one time. When one works in that field you do your "torture time" working and selling musical instruments, teaching and having gatherings for amateur musicians. I was there when an older fellow in his 70's sat down to make music on a very expensive electronic organ. One of the other teachers and I who knew the nice gentleman and he truly was, quietly made the remark: "I have never seen or heard a performer who plays wrong notes and incorrect meter with such astounding authority!" It really was such a descriptive and accurate assessment.

    Ahhh. The battle cry of the mindless drones who prefer to let others tell them what to think and then believe they are knowlegeable and intelligent because they can throw out meaningless buzz words like "liberal media" as a blanket response to every social and political ill.

    I don't know whether this thread was started in jest, but that really is the reason. It's called the Dunning-Kruger Effect, and belongs to that group of mental oddities called "cognitive biases".

    Dunning

    The best example of a recent public figure was, of course, Rick Perry. Since he quit the campaign a couple of people who helped prep him for the debates have mentioned that they had great difficulty convincing him that his responses came across as stupid. He thought his performance had been brilliant.

    Charles Darwin had noticed the same thing when he wrote that he had noticed an inverse relationship between intelligence and certainty.
