They say that genius is in the details. Weak men who are not good at details find outlandishly aggressive men to back them up. Recent examples are G. W. Bush backed by Dick Cheney and now clueless D. J. Trump backed by the weirdly ruthless Steve Bannon.

Dick got us falsely into Iraq that destabilized the middle east and now Steve wants to engage in a titanic religious war. Oh what fun it is when amateur Republicans are in charge of the government.
