The Tea Party: neo-onagrocrats?

# ^ He coined the term onagrocracy (literally "government by braying asses") to describe the style of rule by the Italian Fascist movement and its leader Benito Mussolini's type of government. It is a disdainful term for misgovernment, a late and satirical addition to Aristotle's famous three: tyranny, oligarchy, and democracy.
