“As democracy is perfected, the office of the 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 occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.” —
H.L. Mencken (1880-1956), writing in the Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920
Charlie Martin: Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me; fool me for five years, I’m an Obama voter.
