I am in the middle of re-reading Sinclair Lewis’s It Can’t Happen Here.
If you have never had the pleasure of reading this book, you’re in luck. It’s in the public domain and available online here.
To give you a brief story line, just in case you’ve never read it, and taking care not to spoil the book for you, this quote is from a book written by a politician who is running for president of the United States (supposedly – the book, of course, is fiction). You know how everyone who runs for president has to write a book first? Well, this fictional character did.
But when I read this, I burst out laughing.
See if you know why.
Isn’t the guy’s name great?
