Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

OMG... LOL!!! @TF. The American Public has been hit by that "Flashy Pen Thing" because if they remembered anything about common sense (aka how our grandparents lived), Obama would never have been elected, IMHO! Great post and point made BZ.
