They're like the wonky kids at the front of every classroom trying to impress the teacher with their respectful questions, concentrating on the command of details rather than any big picture. You know they've always been in the front row and at the top of their classes, telling teachers and bosses what they want to hear.

I watched the whole news conference with my son last night (even though it is TV Turnoff Week) and I really can't decide whether I'm more upset at the Empire's Chief Cheerleader behind the podium, or the straight A students in their good clothes giving him their respect and attention.
I want disrespect. Unshined shoes. Talking out of turn. Open collars. Spitballs. Note passing. A healthy lack of awe for "the office".
