  •  John Sununu the elder, yes the crazy one... (6+ / 0-)

    ...was publicly renowned back in the 80s as WH Chief of Staff for his crazy-high IQ, truly genius-level.  Then you watched him on Crossfire and scratched your head.

    It's the stuff of class resentment to poo-pooh "book smarts," but there's really something to it that raw intellect and academic achievement tell less about a man (or woman) than one might think.
