On the Eve of an American Election


 

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.
