the profit of stupidity

William Shakespeare, ventriloquizing via Queen Gertrude: “More matter, with less art.”
Mies van der Rohe, echoing Robert Browning’s Andrea del Sarto: “Less is more.”
Frank Lloyd Wright, dissing the boss of Bauhaus: “Less is only more where more is no good.”
Hendrik Hertzberg, twitting a birther butthead: “For Trump, thinking less and less seems to be working more and more from week to week.”

All kidding aside, we owe The Donald a debt of gratitude for putting an end to idiotic rumors that distracted Barack H. Obama from his true calling of establishing himself as the worst POTUS since Warren G. Harding sucking up to investment bankers, shilling for insurance companies, debasing himself before religious fanatics, and embroiling our country in interminable foreign adventures.
