Quote for the Day

H L Mencken once said that if a congressman discovered there were cannibals in his district, he’d promise them missionaries.

From this Fallows blog post  The quote is apparently somewhat garbled– it was originally part of a shot at Franklin Roosevelt that Mencken published in The American Mercury.  It’s in the middle of this long string of Mencken quotes, which includes my two favorites:  “Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy” and “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”
