Incompetent people who think they are intelligent, but are actually to incompetent to recognize they are are not.

as outlined in the Cornell research named after the professors who discovered it, the Dunning-Kruger Effect..

" incompetent people will:
tend to overestimate their own level of skill;
fail to recognize genuine skill in others;
fail to recognize the extremity of their inadequacy;
recognize and acknowledge their own previous lack of skill, if they are exposed to training for that skill."
Michelle Bachman has a severe case of Dunning-Kruger Syndrome. If only we have universal healthcare that poor woman could get help.
