No, not the President's "Win The Future," whatever the hell that means. The other one.
The West Wing, Season II

[*3] . "Obama didn’t know what he didn’t know, yet his self-confidence was so stratospheric that once, in the context of thinking about Emanuel’s replacement, he remarked in all seriousness, “You know, I’d make a good chief of staff.”"
The words idiot savant
come to my mind whenever I seriously consider Barack Obama's intellectual capacity . . .

[*3] . "The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled people make poor decisions and reach erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to realize their mistakes."
Yeah. Barack Obama. And, actually, most of the people who think themselves the rightful rulers of this (and most other) countries.

[*6] . California Democrat Loretta Sanchez is a nasty piece of work.
Royals are on the clock
[*7] . Kansas City, we're told, has the best minor league system in all of baseball. They'd better.
NASA Press Conference: We Found a Galaxy Formed Only 500 Million Years After the Big Bang
The Battle Over the DSM-V (Or "DSM-5," Since Roman Numerals are Getting the Axe Too)

This is Piven’s idea of a proper “people’s movement.” This is the kind of violence she (Frances Fox Piven) was advocating. This is what she’d like to see happening in America, to Americans.
