Why Do Smart People Pick Fights That Don't Help Them ?

In the category of:

What were they thinking ?

Why did President Obama insult and humiliate British Prime Minister Brown this week? The United Kingdom is our strongest ally, and Brown is a socialist like Obama. You would think they would be friends and that Obama would do everything he could to raise the stature of his ideological and international ally.

Can you say "hubris" ?

And then comes Michael Steele.

Just wondering why he thought picking a fight with Rush Limbaugh made any sense at all. There are lots of people to pick fights with, but the leading conservative talk show host who just gave a stirring defense of conservativism at the CPAC Conference ?

Can you say "why" ?
