I end with a new word, at least new to me. A friend called it to my attention. It speaks of the moment we’re in. It is “kakistocracy,” from the Greek. It means government by the worst persons, by the least qualified or most unprincipled. We’re on our way there, aren’t we?

How on earth did we get both of them at the same time?
And this follows up on Obama and Bush II, who I think history is going to decide were both below average.
