Perfect Democracy At Last

A dear friend of William's gifted him with this quote from H. L. Mencken:

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

President Bush - What, me worry?

William's Whimsical Words:

When that glorious day comes, and after the president has manifest his incompetence in the job for four years, those same plain folks and their friends will blithely reelect him.
