    I am a big fan of David Mamet, *but* he did not explain the meaning of “Chelm” (Does Mamet think *everyone* is Jewish? :) )

    Chelm is the name of a mythical town, and many humorous stories in Jewish literature were written about the “wise people” of Chelm — who were really a bunch of fools. So the term “Chelm” immediately conjures up an image of leaders who think they are wise, but are really, um, like stupid Libs.
