For Day 2, I’m staying with the political theme. I’m going to use an extraordinarily prescient quote from H. L. Mencken that he made almost a century ago.
Henry Louis (H. L.) Mencken was a prominent newspaperman and political commentator during the first half of the 20th century. His quote, featured in the image at the top of this post, was published in the Baltimore Evening Sun on July 26, 1920.
Well, old H. L. was quite prophetic, wasn’t he? It took 96 years, but in 2016 “the plain folks of the land” did, in fact, elect a “downright fool and a complete narcissistic moron” as their president.
How did he know what to expect?
By the way, the rules of this challenge call for me to post a unique quote for three consecutive days and to nominate three bloggers each day to do the same.
There’s a lot going on this month, what with Easter, Passover, baseball season having started, tax day coming up, spring cleaning, etc., etc. I don’t want to unduly burden other bloggers, so I’m gonna skip the part about nominating three other bloggers each day. If you want to participate, go for it. If not, no worries.
