W's Presidency Predicted 87 Years Ago

Tonight Keith Olbermann reminded us all of H.L. Mencken's words from the Baltimore Evening Sun on July 16, 1920:

"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.”

I doubt the brilliant Mr Mencken could have ever imagined our moron and the death and destruction he would bring.
