The best description of too many people that have power is ignorant. They don't know the basis of law, the mandates of the Constitution and couldn't find their asses with both hands and a map.
So, how did they achieve this power? Those that put them in that position have the intellect of a garden vegetable compared to Einstein. Dumbasses elect dumbasses and they wallow in dumbassary like pigs wallow in fresh mud; crapping all over their wallow; snorting in enjoyment and soon on the way to slaughter.
