Attributed to multiple sources (German, British, American) in the last 100 years is the following method of sorting officers:
“I divide my officers into four classes as follows:
The clever, the industrious, the lazy, and the stupid. Each officer always possesses two of these qualities.
Those who are clever and industrious I appoint to the General Staff.
Use can, under certain circumstances, be made of those who are stupid and lazy.
The man who is clever and lazy qualifies for the highest leadership posts. He has the requisite nerves and the mental clarity for difficult decisions.
But whoever is stupid and industrious must be got rid of, for he is too dangerous.”Next Monday is an entire rally of industrious stupid people.
Led by the king of stupid and industrious, Philip Van Cleave, president of VCDL.
How smart is he?
Take it away, Borat:
No, really. Same guy.
H/t to anyone and everyone who tipped me to that factoid in comments.
I was astounded that this guy isn't exiled to a shotgun shack about 20 miles from any paved road after stomping his dick off with cleats like this.
Instead, he's the Gilligan running Monday's upcoming Charlie Foxtrot.
Draw your own conclusions.
Just like the border issue and the MinuteTards, the lights and cameras draw out the industrious fuckwits like porch lights pull moths from miles around.
How anyone would trust this guy to even lead them to the drinking fountain is beyond rational explanation.
And if this isn't the final nail in this impending debacle, anyone who still shows up deserves any lumps they get.
The problem is all the people smart enough not to attend, who'll get lumped in with this lumpenproletariat of ne'er-do-wells, because it's handy shorthand for everyone, not least of which the low-IQ media.
Nice going, Gilligan.
UPDATE: More cheery news from Herschel at Captain's Journal
Just a coincidence, of course.
