Are you part of this kakistocracy?

Because Anne Althouse was watching the spelling bee, I now know that The Raconteurs weren't just just making up words. Wikipedia:
Rule by the least-able or least-principled of citizens, is a form of government in which the people least qualified to control the government are the people who control the government.

That's so Madison!

I still liked the word better when I thought it referred to rule by people who wear khaki pants.
