H. L. Mencken was right

You've heard it paraphrased many ways, but the original quote of H. L. Mencken addresses elections specifically:
No one in this world, so far as I know — and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help me — has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.
November 6, 2012 seems to prove this.
