LEFTISTS HAVE CORRUPTED THE MARKET FOR COMPETENCE:  Two quick analogies about leftist thought processes.

In any field they take over, they buy or promote solely on the basis of adherence to the ideology. This has accomplished in four generations what took inbreeding ten to do. I.e leaders so crazy and stupid that they cannot find the right place on a human to set a crown given three tries and a lot of hints.
On top of that their ideology tells them their beliefs shape reality, rather than needing to conform to it.  The result is what you see.
