Tea for All

As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. 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

You reap what you sow, Tea Partiers.

    If you want to link to the specific Mencken source (I always link to the specific sources, because there are so many bogusly attributed sources), it’s here.

    It’s from a collection called “On Politics: A Carnival of Buncombe”, specifically in an essay called “Bayard vs. Lionheart.”

    Honestly, I thought that was a made-up attribution, because the word “downright” sounds very un-Mencken. But I was wrong.
