    Pitiful. :vbmad: I don't have words to express how upsetting all of this is. Or that my most repeated phrase hurled at the TV has been narrowed down to 2 explicit words. :vbmad:

    I had to look up that word. This thread is the first time I've encountered the word itself, although the concept is completely familiar to citizens of most South American countries. My home country has been a kakistocracy for as long as I remember, and the current President seems to be little better than previous ones :(

    I learned the word many years ago. A blowhard contractor I worked with had the initials KAK. I teased him that 'kak' is the sound a cat makes when coughing up a furball. Every time he walked by my desk, I'd make the sound. A few days of this and another coworker stopped by with a page from his "Word of the Day" calendar, encouraging me to associate kakistocracy with our friend KAK. I couldn't resist. :D

    Personally, I avoided acknowledging his existence from the moment I heard of him (1990s) because of the person that he is. I would never willingly choose to allow anyone with his characteristics into my life. Ever. For the most part, I was successful. And yet, now, here we are. IMPOSSIBLE to avoid. :vbfrown:

    Truthfully, I'm holding out for the Warren G. solution, but much sooner, because I don't think we can wait that long. :vbmad:

    Pardon my slip into territory that I usually avoid here. I blame my humanity.
