Happy Birthday, H. L. Mencken!

"It's the birthday of the journalist and editor H. L. (Henry Louis) Mencken, (books by this author) born in Baltimore, Maryland (1880)."

I wish Mencken were here now to write about the current election campaign.  He'd be having a wonderful time.

Yes and my favorite Mencken comment would be on everybody's lips: "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people."

Does the name Palin mean anything to you?
