I really don't think what we call "intelligence" and stupidity are mutually exclusive. It's all part of the human condition, but people do seem to continually be amazed when someone with impeccable credentials, royally f*cks up. They often do far more damage though.
Politics, science and war itself are littered with cretinous behaviour from the people we think we can trust, but that's a whole different thread. :-)
