H.L. Mencken once said, "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public." Every day when I consider that a majority of my fellow citizens picked one Barack "Barry" Hussein Obama -- the left-wing/never-had-a-real-job/community-organizer -- to be their president ... well, I can't help but think 'bout Mencken's prescient quote.

Mencken, of course, is no longer with us. The Sage of Baltimore's spirit, however, is present in this author-unknown quote that's making the rounds on the Interweb (I certainly wish I'd penned/said it) ...

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.

Unless you're a member of the Communist Party USA, the Democratic Socialists of America, or, well, the Democratic Party, how can you f'in' disagree with that?!
