Always Good to Quote Mencken – Cafe Hayek

Posted by M. C. on November 28, 2019

H.L. Mencken, writing in 1927, summed up nicely my thoughts along these lines:

Have you ever examined carefully the speeches made by the candidates in a Presidential campaign? If so, you know that they are of bilge and blather all compact. Now and then, true enough, one of the august aspirants to the Washington breeches is goaded or misled into saying something pungent and even apposite, but not often, not deliberately. His daily stint is simply balderdash.”
