Anosognosic: It is a hypothesis that suggests if the individual pictured is too stupid to realize that the hat he is wearing has a visor designed to shade his eyes and all he has to do is turn it around, then he is too stupid to REALIZE that he is too stupid!
This describes liberals perfectly! They are too clueless to realize they are clueless, much less the depth of their cluelessness! They are protected from their incompetence by the incompetence of those they surround themselves with.
The exact opposite of this is METACOGNITION (thanks to Tony Venuti for introducing me to the word). Metacognition deals with the concept of knowing that you know. For example, I know that 2+2 = 4, and I also KNOW that I know that. I also don't know the square root of 271,441 at the moment, but I know that I can get the answer as well as how to get it (521, by the way).
The problem with liberals is PSEUDOCOGNITION, which is knowing that they feel and feeling that they know. This is the root of their arrogance, which they display daily via the C-SPAN Networks!
They feel that they know how to run a business better than a businessman or run a military at war better than a general. They feel that they know YOUR pain, YOUR hardship and and how to run YOUR life. Let me ask Barney Frank or Chris Dodd when the last time was that they had to skip a mortgage payment in order to keep the electricity on. Let me ask Nancy Pelosi when was the last time she had to cut back on groceries in order to put gas in the car.
These people are NOT the real danger facing America...they are merely the tools being used by the Progressives in order to facilitate the radical transformation of America. Unless we Conservatives come out of the woodwork and drop our apathy, it seems that Ronald Reagan's words of caution to us will come true: "When we forget that we are one nation UNDER GOD, then we will truly be one nation GONE UNDER".
