Having worked for a good number of the world's larger corporations, I can confirm that this level of utter stupidity committed by idiots (who either believe or want to make others believe that they're doing a fantastic job) is perfectly normal.

The bigger problem is that the idiots always tend to be better versed in the ways of one-upmanship and backstabbing that those with genuine talent, so the idiocy breeds, like some evil bacterial culture in a petri dish, and all signs of real talent and ability die, coughing and bleeding.
