Sound Like Anyone We Know? "Do you know what I think, my dear Horace?" Hawk said. "I think you wanted me to believe you were stupid and clumsy."

"Why ever would I want that?"

"To make me think I'm smarter than you are. To manipulate the well-known psychological need of my type to have the upper hand, the need to know more than his adversary, to outwit, then crush."
--The Old Boys, Charles McCarry.

I'm just saying, that's all.
