We have seen the president, and he is us

The Post-Gazette's Early Returns column brings this quote to my attention:

H. L. Mencken: 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 hearts desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

The grand and glorious day has arrived, Mr. Mencken.
