Mencken: Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of Jackals by Jackasses. It is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.In America, we have a two-party system, a Republican congressional staffer is supposed to have told a visiting group of Russian legislators some years ago.There is the stupid party.
