Doubling Down on the Peter Principle November 11, 2016

Posted by geoff in News.

Y’all may recall the old Peter Prinicple: the notion that people are promoted to their level of incompetence. I.e., they keep doing a good job and being promoted until they finally reach a level where they suck. And that’s where they languish, being promotable no more.

Unless, of course, they have patrons (or parents) who keep pushing them up the ladder.

Enter Chelsea Clinton, she of every possible external advantage (money, education, connections), but who can’t seem to accomplish anything on her own. Having been hidden away at a sinecure at the Clinton Foundation because she has no real talents or skills, it’s only natural that we see a headline like this:

Chelsea Clinton being groomed to run forĀ Congress

Unbelievable. It’s like the Peter Principle to infinity.

I’m gonna have to disagree with you on that.

She’ll fit right in.
I figure she already has a plan to make sure Guam doesn’t tip over.

If a bunch of fools in NY want her to represent them, I’m all in favor of that.
I could only hope that at some point someone actually interviews her and asks her a question that isn’t some form of “What do you think of people who don’t like you because you’re a woman?”

If she was given the same treatment by the media as a conservative challenger I’d like to watch it unfold out of morbid curiosity. If she got the Hillary Treatment or just ran unopposed I’d cry “No More Political Dynasties!”
