H.L. Mencken, the Baltimore Evening Sun

A Brilliant Prophecy from 93 Years Ago:

H.L. Mencken (born 1880 - died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic, and Democrat. He wrote this editorial while working for the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920 edition. He wrote:

"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, the Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

So it was written, and so it has come to pass.

A smart man he was!:thumbup:N/T

How about 8yrs before that? Back then we had a moron that felt the need to parse the meaning of the word "is" when he lied.
