Perfectly Said

David Brooks, Why Trump Soars NYTimes (April 18, 2011):
[I]n every society, there are a few rare souls who rise above subservience, insecurity and concern. Each morning they take their own abrasive urges out for parade. They are so impressed by their achievements, so often reminded of their own obvious rightness, that every stray thought and synaptic ripple comes bursting out of their mouth fortified by impregnable certitude. When they have achieved this status they have entered the realm of Upper Blowhardia.

What does this post have do with evidence?

Nothing, I think.

But the statement by Brooks is just too delectable to ignore.
