So, to me this doesn't look like the work of an idiot, but rather the work of a rookie. He is currently eighth in the points.

Is it due to whom he took out that there is such a witch-hunt on? Grab your pitchforks and torches, the rookie took out Hamilton and Alonso through a rookie mistake!!! Burn him!!!!

Do we forget some of the spectacular (though not that frequent making them more spectacular) gaffs by Hamilton, Webber, and Vettel?

C'mon, get off his ass. It was a rookie mistake requiring only a freaking grid-spot penalty. Nothing more, nothing less. If it had been a Hamilton or Webber or Vettel or someone like that, it would have been five or eight or something grid-spots.
I agree with this. Grosjean has shown great potential along with typical rookie mistakes. Hell, Hamilton has done stupider stuff than Romain. I don't see him in the same light as Maldonado, who I think needs to be removed from F1.
