Quote of the Day (J. William Fulbright, on Abusive Public Men vs. Democracy)

“When public men indulge themselves in abuse, when they deny others a fair trial, when they resort to innuendo and insinuation, to libel, scandal, and suspicion, then our democratic society is outraged, and democracy is baffled. It has no apparatus to deal with the boor, the liar, the lout, and the antidemocrat in general.”— J. William Fulbright, U.S. Senator from Arkansas (1905-1995), speech in the Senate, Feb. 2, 1954

This is what is at stake this Election Day, all across the country. Remember this as you vote.
