This seems pretty rare type of error. Most famous incident of pilot taking off w/o clearance I can think of was Entebbe.

Tenerife. Others as well, but that's the biggest.

Do we need a DAQOTYA thread?  ::)
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half

Your opinion.
My opinion is also, I can give the head of USPS 100 questions he would not be able to answer. Actually, that would be a fact!!!  :)

I have no idea what the head of USPS is required to know, but many pilots are saying that anyone running the FAA should have basic knowledge of these.

Is there any reason they tapped this candidate? Judging from the other nominees this administration has picked, the only qualifications necessary is being a part of the ever-expanding alphabet soup.

Should he know the requirements for baggage also? How about air pressure in the tires?
I would be worried if couldn't find the answers.

He doesn't need to know every detail of aviation policy, he can get help. Like the guys in charge of nuclear energy can help him with baggage rules.

At this point in history and with our current technological capabilities, the ability to know how to find, access, and utilize information in an effective and well applied mannerism is more important than the ability to regurgitate facts upon request. These are all things that can be easily looked up, which is how this clueless senator reading off a piece of paper is aware of them in the first place.

True, however you need to know enough to know what you need to look up/learn. (I didn't watch the video, so I don't know if the questions which were asked are the type that can show if someone has a familiarity with the field which the FAA oversees).

Would you trust your doctor with the "ability to know how to find, access, and utilize information in an effective and well applied mannerism"

I would hope so. Otherwise, anyone who graduated medical school 20 years ago is utterly obsolete.

Yes?
If you were to have strep and he would be searching the web with "The ability to know how to find, access, and utilize information in an effective and well applied mannerism' on which medication to prescribe,
 How much longer would you call him your doctor?

I hate that line of questioning, because it's all about the Shtick. I was a lot more convinced by Senator Cruz's simple questions - Did you ever fly a plane? Did you ever work for an airline? Did you ever employ a mechanic? etc.

Most of them are pretty basic questions,
If this guy is applying to be head of a major department that has serious consequences as as we all see now, you should know something about aviation, and especially when arriving to a senate hearing, c'mon be prepared!
What's his plan he'll learn on the job?
Why should heading the faa be any less than being a Ceo of any corporate company, try this at an interview.

1)before a hearing.
2) before policy meetings.
3)after major incidents
