Doubling Down on the Peter Principle November 11, 2016Posted 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:
Unbelievable. It’s like the Peter Principle to infinity.
