A Perfect Moron

H.L. Mencken was Ahead of His Time

In The Baltimore Sun, July 26, 1920, Henry Louis Mencken wrote:

“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.”

The United States has reached that great and glorious day. From here forth, it can only be downhill.
