Are we there yet?

I'd seen this a long time ago, but thought it especially worth
circulating again, given today's situation.


H.L. Mencken (born 1880 - died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic,
and Democrat. He wrote this editorial while working for the Baltimore
Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920, edition:

"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 July 26, 1920
