Hubridity: A combination of hubris and stupidity. Stupidly wrong while arrogantly certain about being right.

I coined this term a while back in conversation and wanted it here because I feel it's a useful term, especially in describing Bush.

He's convinced he's right, but he can't even think through, much less communicate, his thinking on a particular subject.

I've often wondered if Bush could explain anything --anything from to world affairs to internal combustion -- in a way that someone who didn't already understand it would know what he is talking about. He just asserts and asserts, with absolute conviction but no way of connecting his assertions.

Of course, he's certain he's right. Because he's filled with hubridity.

I should note that I don't think Bush is of especially low intelligence -- he's probably well within average or normal. He's just so lazy in his thinking (and in a hurry to get on his bike) that he hasn't really thought about anything non-political in many years.
