Today's quote

Here's Kenneth "The Threatening Storm" Pollack describing a Certain World Leader.
[He] has a number of pathologies ... he is an inveterate gambler and risk-taker who regularly twists his calculation of the odds to suit his preferred course of action. He bases his calculations on assumptions that outsiders often find bizarre and has little understanding of the larger world. He is a solitary decision-maker who relies little on advice from others. And he has poor sources of information about matters outside [the country], along with intelligence services that generally tell him what they believe he wants to hear.
Who do you think he's talking about?
