Political Reward – “Democracy, an American novel” – Henry Adams

July 16th, 2011 · No Comments · Means and Ends, Politics, US Politics

This is the moment when the two whited sepulchres at either end of the Avenue reek with the thick atmosphere of bargain and sale. The old is going; the new is coming. Wealth, office, power are at auction. Who bids highest? who hates with most venom? who intrigues with most skill? who has done the dirtiest, the meanest, the darkest, and the most, political work? He shall have his reward.
