They weren't smart, they were drunk; there's a difference. We don't
even trust drunks to drive these days. They fall well short of the
pedestal people put them on.
1) They thought the electoral college was a good idea. This has
burned us over the years by making it easier to rig presidential
elections and gives states with large populations of stupid people
(ie California) disproportionately large say.
2) The vast majority of the time they spent writing the "framework"
for the US was spent in a pub across the street from Independence
Hall in a drunken haze.
 Though I'm sure if they thought a state inhabited almost entirely
by retards could one day exist, much less become very populated, they
would probably have realized how retarded the idea was even through
their drunken stupor.
