either way you're still liable to be screwed.
If you have an foolish idiot for a friend, you can still be taken advantage of even by your lesser inteligent enemies. Your enemies could use your foolish friend as a tool to manipulate situations against your favor. Your foolish friend is bound to be manipulated to do something to go against your friendship...Even if your enemies weren't super intelligent, having a foolish friend period is asking for trouble.
EDIT: I also agree with cb4. Having an inteligent enemy can actually be a good thing as far as surviving in the real world. It makes you more alert and cunning to the dirty deeds a person could do to you.
I'd rather have reliable, trust worthy and loyal friends than foolish ones that would do doinging off the wall to betray you.
