Callan Bentley at Mountain Beltway has very ably demonstrated that the Dunning-Kruger effect afflicts most of the U.S. Republican Presidential candidates.


  1. I don't care for the word "belief" and its connotations. If I didn't "believe" in evolution, it doesn't stop it from existing. Conversely believing in something doesn't make it reality.
