Henry Louis Mencken was an American journalist, satirist, cultural critic and scholar of American English who lived from 1886 to 1956 according to Wikipedia.
He obviously knew something when he wrote in 1920
"As democracy is perfected,the office of presidents represents,more and more closely,the inner soul of the people...On some great and glorious day the plain folks will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
