Quote of the Week 6/5/08

     All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most easily (and) adeptly disperse the notion that  his mind is a virtual vauum.

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of this land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will adorned by a downright moron  ~ H.L. Mencken, Baltimore Sun, 1920
