To The Herald-Whig:

Since President Barack Obama, accompanied by his baggage of advisors and cabinet appointees, has been re-elected it became necessary to spawn a new word to describe our current form of government under his leadership: Ineptocracy (source unknown).

Definition: A system of government which occurs when the least capable to head are elected by the least capable of producing, and when the members of society least likely to succeed or sustain themselves are rewarded with goods and services paid for the confiscated wealth of diminishing numbers of producers.

The introduction of this new word into America's vocabulary provides an excellent example of fulfulling Obama's campaign slogan of "Forward."
