The View from Yesterday

Sometimes we come across a piece of writing which just ‘nails it’! Many readers may not have heard of H.L. Mencken before, but he is worth a read. Following is the strangely prescient quote:


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. “

Apply this, as you will, to America, or substitute a couple of the situational phrases, and can we, the voters of this great land, hold our heads up high? We voted for them!
