H. L. Mencken sure got this one right!

H. L. Mencken comes to life once again!

. I like how this H.L. Mencken quote needs to substitute a tall President Obama with Sarah Palin to keep the perspective intact. Well Vice President Elect is close enough. Has an old quote ever been more apropos?

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” H.L. Mencken

Yes, this one is even better!

“Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.” H.L. Mencken

And this one applies so well to what this election was won on…

“For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.” H.L. Mencken

H.L. Mencken as good a quoter as Ambrose Bierce…

“Egotist: a person more interested in himself than in me”. Ambrose Bierce
