Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Why are smart people so dumb?

I was thinking this, but I wasn't planning on writing it. However, the exponential increase in traffic has convinced me to do so.

How is it that me, a stupid kid, in college, not even studying poly-sci, was able to see through Obama's lies back in January of 2007; but highly paid, highly educated politicos such as David Brooks, Peggy Noonan, Kathlene Parker, the entire staff of The Economist, Colin Powell , Christopher Buckley, and well, the entire MSM, were not? (diagram that sentence)
