adjective

Able to discern and distinguish with wise perception; having a keen practical sense.

What arouses the indignation of the honest satirist is not, unless the man is a prig, the fact that people in positions of power or influence behave idiotically, or even that they behave wickedly. It is that they conspire successfully to impose upon the public a picture of themselves as so very sagacious, honest and well-intentioned.

—Claud Cockburn “The Worst Possible Taste” Cockburn Sums Up (1981)
