Did H.L Mencken Understand Republicans or what?

"As democracy is perfected, the office of 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 adorned by a downright moron. "

    No, but I would say he understood Democrats.

    We *just* missed having a moron in office in 2000 and again in 2004......

    I think it's damned hilarious how furious you Dems were after Kerry lost. D'OH!! Bush was sooooo beatable, and yet you guys trotted out another dumbass liberal elitist. You were *this* close...if only you'd been smart enough to choose a better candidate.
