"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. Mencken
(1880-1956) American Journalist, Editor, Essayist, Linguist, Lexicographer, and Critic

This has been apparent for some time now.

    really, really sad and far to true

    The only tax that I favor is a poll tax. When I first voted in Texas you had to pay a tax, some where around $1:75 in order to vote. This kept a lot of riff raff and no- nothings from voting. An awful lot of these folk have voted in recent elections.

    And the quintessential idiot was George W. Bush.

    Oh come on now Hanson...let's not forget Mr. "I can't keep my dick in my pants" or the latest offering from the Globalists...The commie from Kenya...he can't even string together a sentence without his teleprompter. ;-)
    Bush was just as much the Globalist though...gotta admit.

    Can you say, "W?"
