Probably the most over rated US General in WWII, possibly in all US history. He had some good moments later on (even so, many would be best attributed to his underlings) but he should have been sacked for what happened in the Philippines given that a Japanese attack was obviously coming.

And he was a horrible human being.

Agreed. I would put him up there with Mark W. Clark and Ambrose Burnside.
