"I prefer tongue tied knowledge to ignorant loquacity." Cicero
Cicero: Not Ready for U.S. Congress
America: not ready for intelligence
Or... We could just write it down for people to read without being distracted by our tongues' antics.
Agree, though I actually prefer knowledgeable loquacity. I wouldn't be so fast to call those people know-it-alls and smartasses but, if they really know a lot, I listen and learn.
Sounds like some Presidents I know.
I tend to be the former. I do a good amount of research on issues I care about, but I find it hard to express my views effectively.
