Highly educated does not always translate to common sense.

Given my experience dealing with the foul-ups of these people on a daily basis I'd argue that it's far more likely that one's level of education is inversely-proportional to one's amount of common sense. I've seen supposedly brilliant people do mind-numbingly stupid things on such a frequent basis that any belief I may have once had that they should be running everything was quashed long ago.
