It's Funny Because It's True

Democracy summed up by Scott Adams [Dilbert.Blog]:

I’ve been involved in a number of job interviews for managers and chefs at my restaurants. I consider myself a reasonably good judge of character with lots of experience interviewing people. But when I compare the actual job performance of a person compared to what I predicted, there’s almost no correlation. Voting is the same way. We’re judging how a candidate will handle a nuclear crisis by how well his staff creates campaign ads. It’s a completely nonsensical process.

This reminds me of something I read somewhere else (really helpful description, I know) that said that really, we are all terrible judges of "trustworthiness" or "character."
