    Ha! Good pick up.

    The Urban Dictionary is always enlightening (warning for the faint of heart, there's some bad language demonstrating its usage).

    Urban Dictionary: kakistocracy

    If the Urban Dictionary is not sufficient, the term has snuck into some lyrics via The Raconteurs:

    I've got a rabbit, it likes to hop
    I've got a girl and she likes to shop
    The other foot looks like it won't drop
    I had an uncle and he got shot

    Is this greeting the type that's meant for me?
    Are you part of this kakistocracy?

    This ringing in my ears won't stop
    I've got a red Japanese tea-pot
    I've got a pen but I lost the top
    I've got so many things you haven't got

    This fellow's craft is just not for sharing
    He's not an intimate secretary!

    I've got a rabbit it likes to hop
    I've got a girl and she likes to shop
    The other foot looks like it won't drop
    I had an uncle but he got shot

    Then on rubble of scummest malarchy
    Down with luck we'll see Ecclesiarchy
    Our fellow's craft is just not for sharing
    He's not an intimate secretary!

    The Ex-? Inspector Inquisitor
    The Demockery lust streets master
    Are you part of this kakistocracy?
    Is this greeting the type that's meant for me?

    It's not Wednesday, but what the hell.

    Dither or differing. A great word.

    "The Australian Prime Ministered dithered over directing a nation wide lock down in the face of a highly infectious virus."

    "The Vice President and other nervous nellies were seen to dither about invoking the 25th amendment due to Trump's incapacity to discharge the role and duties of the President in the face of a highly infectious virus."

    You get the drift.
