PEOPLE ARE CALLED SMART in the Northeast Liberal Establishment bubble by stupid people who mistake glibness for intelligence.
For example, Obama isn’t smart. Obama is — all offense intended — a trained monkey. He has the patter down. But, as demonstrated by his teleprompter dependency, take him off-script, and his glibness breaks down. The same is true of most of those on the Left who are called smart. If a person believes that collectivism can work, he is, ipso facto, a moron.
It’s not hard to cipher.
