Larry Summers Takes One to Know One on the Winklevoss Twins

Larry Summers interviewed on the Winklevoss Twins:

Q: So was that scene in The Social Network true?

A: I've heard it said that I can be arrogant. If that's true I surely was on that occassion.

One is that they're looking for a job and have an interview; the other is that they're an asshole. This was the latter case. Rarely, have I encountered such swagger, and I tried to respond in kind.
