67. I know precisely what the word means. THAT'S WHY I USED IT.
Edited on Mon Dec-05-11 08:48 PM by Occulus
Obama openly, baldly lied during his campaign regarding his intention to end medical cannabis DEA raids, which are ongoing, and both he and his administration have shown open contempt for GLBTs, going so far as to need to be dragged kicking and screaming into repealing DADT (after needlessly defending it in court) despite his claims of "fierce advocacy" for us (never mind that fucking "five minute song"), Congress sold actual health care reforms down the river by refusing even to discuss the merits (even in the most superficial of ways) of a single-payer framework while seating the industry that caused the health care crisis at the table and giving them a god damned megaphone, and that motherfucker Arne Duncan seems hell-bent upon doing his level best to completely and for all time destroy public education while at the same time using standardized testing as a means to produce an easily exploited, incurious, "that's good enough" mentality among our young people.

It is not solely Obama, though. I can prove my case using examples pulled from all three branches of government, at every level. The corruption is so vast and all-encompassing that it is the rule, not the exception, and this becomes more true, not less, the higher up you go.

If this does not represent the essence of a kakistocracy, there is no such animal.
