"We must respect the other fellow's religion,but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart."

I used to put that at the end of my emails. H.L. Mencken is an interesting fellow. They made a pretty good write up of him on Wikipedia. I suggest you scope it out.

"At one point in his career he was America's favorite pundit and literary critic at the same time."

Sounds like the modern equivalent of John Stewart.
