I guess this story fits the category perfectly. Apparently the most brilliant human being who has ever walked the earth, the carpet-bagging Senator from New York, aka Miss Smartypants, aka Hillary, failed the bar exam in D.C.:
had taken both the Arkansas and the Washington, D.C., bar exams during the summer, but my heart was pulling me toward Arkansas. When I learned that I had passed in Arkansas but failed in D.C., I thought that maybe my test scores were telling me something.
Kaus has a bunch of theories. Personally, I blame Ken Starr.
