Today’s post over at “Sock Monkey Say . . .” inspired me to Google quotes from H. L. Mencken. I’m sharing a few in light of the results of yesterday’s presidential election.
Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.
No one ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.
Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.
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.
At a loss for words of my own for day 9 of NanoPoblano/NaBloPoMo.
