H. L. Mencken is said to have observed that no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people. That’s a pretty good witticism. But it isn’t quite true. If only he had substituted “the American political class” or “the American media,” then it would have been true as well as witty.
Meanwhile, those very American people you, like Mencken, hold in such contempt: they are waking up.
Well, Roger, you know, it was the American people who elected this POS, not once, but twice, so I don’t think you’ve really managed to disprove Mencken’s not just witty, but accurate, appraisal. Nor does the fact that the moron they were stupid enough to elect and then reelect has finally awakened them from their mindless stupor do so, either.
