Hail The Everyman Leader, wealthy screw up, man of values

Great quote from my buddy the BalloonPirate:
"No people ever recognize their dictator in advance. He never stands for election on the platform of dictatorship. He always represents himself as the instrument [of] the Incorporated National Will. ... When our dictator turns up you can depend on it that he will be one of the boys, and he will stand for everything traditionally American. And nobody will ever say 'Heil' to him, nor will they call him 'Fuhrer' or 'Duce.' But they will greet him with one great big, universal, democratic, sheeplike bleat of 'O.K., Chief! Fix it like you wanna, Chief! Oh Kaaaay!'" -- Dorothy Thompson, 1935

Yeah, but what you don't know is Dorothy Thompson was real ugly. So you have to assume whenever she opened her nmouth she had her own agenda. Ever notice how real pretty women hardly ever say anything? I'm just saying....
