Growing up, doing magic tricks, and such, I always liked things akin, like parapsychology and ESP. Sadly, I never had the ability to actually ‘see’ in my mind’s eye anything, or to predict the future.
H.(erbert) L.(Lewis) Mencken, a certifiable curmudgeon and seer ahead of his time, was obviously different. He said this in The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920…
“As democracy is perfected, the office of the 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 occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.”
As the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue wasn’t even born until August 4, 1961, and Mencken died January 29, 1956, HOW COULD HE HAVE KNOWN?
Cue the Twilight Zone theme….
