Skip to comments.The New Kakistocracy
Posted on 01/04/2019 4:27:32 PM PST by Twotone
Kakistocracy is a badly underused word which needs to make a major comeback this year, as it is perfectly descriptive of the cabal of loons, clowns, demagogues, crooks and halfwits who are now in charge of the House of Representatives.
The literal definition of the word is a system of government which is run by the worst, least qualified, or most unscrupulous citizens. Its been around for a few hundred years, but overtaken by others perhaps more colorful to describe slimeball government. Kleptocracy, for example, has a real ring to it.
But in surveying the crowd now in charge, who elected Nancy Pelosi for another tour of duty as the Speaker of the House, its not enough to call this a kleptocracy or an idiocracy. There are for certain crooks and idiots among the new House majority, and even within its leadership and committee chairs.
But there is so much more depravity and disqualification than that. Kakistocracy is really the word.
Start with Pelosi, whos a proven commodity. She got four years as House Speaker from 2007-2011, after which the American people reacted to her governance as they would a rabid coyote in the front yard. Shes hardly improved since if anything, the episodic moonbattery, unnatural facial tics, brazen public untruths, and irrational pronouncements have become even more frequent and frightening than they were a dozen years ago. Thats not a surprise given Pelosis age and clearly declining faculties.

Ah, kakistocracy. Rule by caca. Yep, that’s what we get.
Now I KNOW you did NOT read that article. :-) But you are not wrong.
cabal of loons, clowns, demagogues, crooks and halfwits who are now in charge of the House of Representatives. funny, I love the descriptions
Kakistocracy is perfect....but even better is the descriptive list of the Democrat jokers parading around our govt......... as if they belong there.
“The literal definition of the word is a system of government which is run by the worst, least qualified, or most unscrupulous citizens.”
The House is now run by a Tinkleocracy.
Nancy Pelosi uses the word tinkle.
Pelosi had four years as House Speaker from 2007-2011. Her view of governance was sophmoric.
Now shes got the gavel again (cue laugh machine here).
Levin had the best idea-——expel her from office.
Nancy Pelosi uses the word tinkle.
She’s showing off ... how elite & highbrow she is. Only peasants & deplorables would say anything else ... like “pee”. I’m sure her Depends are trimmed in French lace - the real stuff.
I believe the word “caca” comes from the Greek “kakos” for “bad.”
An accurate description!
I call it a gynocratic craptacular.
What a funny essay.
I dont watch news programs of any kind and havent for years. They upset me too much. Lol. But tonight I was walking through the den and hubby had fox on and they were talking about the new Dem House. I told hubby....this isnt just a difference in politics, now theyre electing pure nut jobs.
I found it horrifying. I have no doubt that the author’s take on the Dems taking over committee leadership is fairly accurate. But it’s not how the lamestream media will portray them. And since most people are NOT paying much attention to politics, they’ll believe the nonsense & not see the danger.
This is definitely going to be a brutal political year.
Kak is a vulgar term from Afrikaans (derivative from Dutch, South Africa). I won’t define it here, but any curious person can look it up.
