H. L. Mencken was right

You’ve heard it paraphrased many ways, but the original quote of H. L. Mencken addresses elections specifically:

No one in this world, so far as I know — and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help me — has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.

November 6, 2012 seems to prove this.

  1. Gotta love how all the filth that has come here from whatever 3rd world hellhole in the last 20-30 years just voted to make MY country the same as the shithole they left. Good luck escaping this time, there’s no place left, thanks to you.

  2. Just say you’re putting up a 100′ windmill in your backyard and Obama will pay for it. When all that gets built is a flag pole, you can just say the company went bankrupt before you could finish it. Throw in something about big oil and you should be good.
