Yet Hughes’ ‘hero’ is a terrifying figure.
On the one hand he is described as a terrifying figure, yet the heading asks euphimistically if Bueller is a 'jerk'? A jerk is usually an idiot, someone who's embarrassing in public, but the argument put forward by Kinnear indicates that Bueller is anything but an idiot, but rather a clever, manipulative individual - thus completely contradicting the title of his argument.
