When people say "So-and-so is brilliant." don't they really mean?
"They said something I agree with in an appealing way."
You don't hear all too many liberals admitting Karl Rove was a brilliant (but perhaps morally challenged) political strategist or conservatives admitting Bill Clinton really did get the best of Gingrich and the other congressional Republicans back in the 90s.
99% of either group simply won't admit it.

You'd have to be stupid not to admit Rove is a brilliant strategist. Democrats typically make him out to be an 'evil genius' type.
Gingrich is a really intelligent guy. He got Clinton sweating. Clinton was a good liar. Obama is a bad liar.
