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[1]) 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.

[1] 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.
