A pretentious leader or pundit is the meaning the Great JB uses in this context. And I couldn't agree more thoroughly!
These "think tank" theoreticists sit around and come up with solutions that have no touch with reality. I think they should take a bunch of them and put them in the mud of: Bosnia, Kosovo, Korea, Uganda, etc. and let them: sweep for mines, feed and clothe refugees, go on night patrol, etc.
Yeah, and since I can no longer sit in a neighborhood bar like the Blue Hour or Duke Frazier's and discuss world politics and solutions, I'll take the "Gathering" as second best...DAN BLAINE
