At Yesterday's Hearing, Whitaker Showed Himself to be the Poster Boy for the Dunning Kruger Effect

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which people of low ability have illusory superiority and mistakenly assess their cognitive ability as greater than it is. Whitaker's performance was pathetic. He has always been supremely unqualified for his Attorney General position and would be more suited to this position in a third-rate dictatorship. No wonder the U. S. has become the laughingstock of the world!

1. The fact that he thought he could run out a 5-minute clock on the chairman was stunning in its

ineptness, never mind arrogance.

Whoever spent all that time prepping him failed to get through his shiny scalp how a House committee even works. If your gambit relies upon leveraging the committee rules, you need to KNOW the committee rules!

The peter principle:

"The principle that members of a hierarchy are promoted until they reach the level at which they are no longer competent."
