Just 107 Days to Go

With just 107 days to go till January 20th when the USA and the World bids a fond farewell to Dubya ( will we ever see his like again ) and Sarah winks and says "Durn it" and "Shucks"...

...and as Congressmen stream out of Congress like termites to go back on the stump to convince voters why they voted for the Bailout that is having no real effect ( money well spent ?)...

...I bring you The Nostradamus award in Journalism, which this year goes to H. L. Mencken, who made the following prophecy on July 26, 1920, in the Baltimore Sun:

"[When] a candidate for public office faces the voters he does not face men of sense; he faces a mob of men whose chief distinguishing mark is the fact that they are quite incapable of weighing ideas, or even of comprehending any save the most elemental--men whose whole thinking is done in terms of emotion, and whose dominant emotion is dread of what they cannot understand. So confronted, the candidate must either bark with the pack or be lost. All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre--the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. 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."

Sir Davyd (I think I just shit my pants of) Oxfordshire


  1. I already shit my pants 107 days ago. I am petitioning Congress for a "Clean Up".

    Our Founding Father's (not of KMSA, but of the United States of America) took great care in making sure the common "moron" would not have his say by using the electoral college. The problem with that system today is, unlike in the past, the electoral college actual reflects the republic.

    I often wonder if fat men with bad teeth, who where some of our finest President's, would even be able to make it out of the primaries today?

    It appears that our political machine has become nothing more than another crappy reality show.

    Palin, she's got the look, so McCain the old fat man has a chance. That's the real "shit my pants" moment for me!

  2. I'd vote for Tina Fey if i were there..:) she made marginally for sense.

    sir D of O

  3. Unlike me... i meant to say .

    Marginally MORE sense.

    Vote for me I'm a moron...:)))

    ...with sausage fingers and no brain.
