Haven't you ever heard two Rabbis arguing a point and they both claim that G-d is speaking through them? I did. Normally, neither one would have done this, but they were angry. I had to leave their presence so they wouldn't see me laughing, but you are right - who's perfect? Sometimes though, they bring the ridicule on themselves by overdoing the "great sage" bit.
