>From a Facebook post by Andrea Glorioso (unedited):

*The problem with engineer-like folks trying to do politics is that most of
them don't understand that emotions are often more powerful than facts, and
that they are simply not as relevant for the the person they are debating
with, or as powerful in the grand scheme of things, as they think.If I had
a dime for every "techie" who won the battle of showing he knew more than
his counterpart, just to lose the war of actually getting the long-term
result s/he wanted, I'd be reasonably well-off (some techies do understand
politics - some.)*
