On the eve of an American election, it's only fitting that we supply three choice quotes from the great H. L. Mencken:

- Every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.

- A good politician, under democracy, is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar.

- Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of Jackals by Jackasses.

Happy voting (or not), everyone.
