Getting Closer Every Day

The Bruner was kind enough to pass on this bit of Menken verbiage:

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.

— H.L. Menken, Baltimore Evening Sun, 26 July 1920
