Today’s M-TOPP: Mark Twain on Politics and Politicians

 

Insane Democrats and Insane Republicans

 

All democrats are insane, but not one of them knows it; none but the republicans and mugwumps know it. All the republicans are insane, but only the democrats and mugwumps can perceive it. The rule is perfect; in all matters of opinion our adversaries are insane. When I look around me I am often troubled to see how many people are mad.

– Christian Science and the book of Mrs. Eddy
