Prescient Thoughts from a Renowned
Cynic, Sage and Prophet
Henry Louis Mencken (1880-1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic and registered Democrat. He wrote the brief editorial comment below for the the July 26, 1920 edition Baltimore Evening Sun.
"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
