Bush Government Finally Defined!
For over six years now Americans have been sorely puzzled by what to call the Government of George W. Bush. It is not a democracy or a 'republic' by commonlyunderstood definitions. The Bush government rejects communism even as it adopts many of it's symptoms, so it must not be that. It decries all forms of socialism, so that can't be it. At times it seems to be a dictatorship, but that assumes someone at the top smart enough to run a government, so that definitely isn't it.
Sometimes it seems to be a sort of theocracy, but then we witness its leaders act in most un-religious ways by the standards of any known religion, so that can't be it. So, we are left wondering what in the hell kind of government the Bush administration is running.
Well, we wonder no more! Watching those bright young boys and girls in the National Spelling Bee brought a revelation! One young lady, from Illinois I believe described her favorite word as “KAKISTOCRACY” and gave the definition. Of course, that’s it!
Language etymologists have now confirmed the exact definition of the Bush administration government, beyond any possibility of misunderstanding. Thank Heavens! Now we can begin to understand.
By unanimous agreement of word scholars, Bush's government is described, and can only be a
"KAKISTOCRACY, (noun) is defined as:
(The) "rule by the least able or least-principled of citizens, (kakistocracy) is a form of government in which the people least qualified to control the government are the people who control the government."
