My Favorite American

Posted By Don Boudreaux On September 12, 2013 @ 4:40 pm In Politics | Comments Disabled

Over at EconLog,¬†David Henderson [1] and Alberto Mingardi [2] celebrate – with some of their favorite quotations from the birthday boy – H.L. Mencken’s birthday. ¬†Regular Cafe patrons will not be surprised to read me here repeat my favorite Mencken insight:

The saddest life is that of a political aspirant under democracy.  His failure is ignominious and his success is disgraceful.

This quotation was my Quotation of the Day back on November 8, 2011 [3].
