The Politician by H. L. Mencken

Mencken was a very outspoken journalist based in Baltimore. He had as firm a handle on the English language as anyone. There are several volumes of compilations of his articles available at libraries and in paperback. He was an original. In this piece he gives us a very literate rant on the clergy, the police and especially the politician.
