I love me some good writing. Today I was reading Maureen Dowd's editorial on Scott McClellan's new book. She said:
". . . our president is a one-man refutation of Malcom Gladwell's best-seller Blink, about the value of trusting your gut.
"Every gut instinct he had was wildly off the mark and hideously damaging to all concerned.
"It seems that if you trust your gut without ever feeding your gut any facts or news or contrary opinions, if you keep your gut on a steady diet of grandiosity, ignorance, sycophants, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, those snap decisions can be ruinous."
