Is America becoming an “kakistocracy”?

Brutal op piece by Peggy Nooman in the WSJ last Friday.

The title tells most of the story: “The Week They Decided Donald Trump Was Crazy”.

The evidence: his taking the Khan bait and dissing Ryan and McCain.

“People started to become convinced he was nuts, a total flake.”


That’s all that most folks will take from the article.

But, there was an important twist that most folks will miss or dismiss.


Noonan also pointed out:

While Mr. Trump was doing this, Mrs. Clinton was again lying about her emails, reminding us there’s crazy there, too.

She insisted to Chris Wallace that FBI director James Comey endorsed her sincerity and veracity.

No he didn’t, and everyone knows he didn’t.

No one believes she’s honest and trustworthy.”


Noonan sums up it all up:

I end with a word that 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?


Geez, is anybody happy with the choices?

Brazen & crazy or feeble & corrupt … what’s your pick?
