headless chicken
 n.— «The advocates and supporters of the new party notion see this as a logical solution to the political quagmire the ruling party has found itself in following the populist rhetoric, demagoguery and vindictiveness of the post-Polokwane conference era. This period has seen the meteoric rise to prominence of what some people call “headless chickens” like Julius Malema.» —“New party: Old wine in a new bottle?” by Mxolisi Mgxashe Cape Argus (Cape Town, South Africa) Oct. 8, 2008.
