Okay from the ridiculous

Okay, from the ridiculous to the sublime, only in reverse.

Adam Nagourney’s piece in the Times gives the standard run-down of Wes Clark’s seemingly imminent announcement of his candidacy. He puts a bit more flesh on the story than Dan Balz in the Post and leaves less doubt about the outcome.

But look at the quote he got from Mark Fabiani …

He’s an intriguing figure. You spend any time with him and you realize he is a prestigiously talented person with an extraordinary record. He would be a very potent candidate.

Here’s my question: what the &#$% is a “prestigiously talented person”?
