H.L. Mencken, as quoted in the Baltimore Sun in 1920: "As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. 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."

As it turns out, Menchen was quite a prophet!

Scary... I'm not sure I agree that Bush is a moron per se. He's dangerous because he is a "true believer" in that new evidence does not make him question his currently held beliefs... which one could argue makes someone a moron... quite a conundrum
