Just reading around here and there during my too frequent idle moments:
"Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it." --MT
I think about this often, especially during an election cycle.
"[He] was endowed with a stupidity which by the least little stretch would go
around the globe four times and tie." --MT
Does this bring anyone in particular to mind? Well, no one with whom I am personally acquainted.
