QUOTE OF THE DAY: "It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. "
H. L. MenckenUS editor (1880 - 1956)

I can but wonder what the revered Mr. Mencken would have to say about Hillary Rodham Clinton, John F. Kerry, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John Murtha and Edward Moore Kennedy (among others too numerous to list)! Given Mencken's gift for invective, it might have been somewhat entertaining!

Yes, too numerous to list! And where is the Mencken of 2007?

Beats the hell out of me! I've read so much of his stuff, his cadence occasionally surfaces when I'm writing - but not often enough! My favorite Menckenism is: "A professional politician is a professionally dishonest man!"
