[…] he’s surrounding himself with people who share his contempt for everything that is best in America. What we’re looking at, all too obviously, is an American kakistocracy — rule by the worst.

With All Due Disrespect
Paul Krugman, The Opinion Pages, The New York Times

 


Our republic was shrewdly hijacked,
Deliberately racked and ransacked
By a scurrilous lot
And a would be despot
In a true kakistocracy pact.

Legislation that robs
Working people of jobs
While health care insurance is whacked.
