„Why no women, blacks, or non-Christians have answered the founders' challenge is a mystery, though most indications point to some inherent genetic flaw.“

—  Jon Stewart American political satirist, writer, television host, actor, media critic and stand-up comedian 1962
Context: By far the most revolutionary aspect of this new position [of the presidency] would be who could hold it. The short answer: just about anyone. By placing no explicit race, gender, or religious requirements on the presidency, the Founders opened the door to a true meritocracy. Why no women, blacks, or non-Christians have answered the founders' challenge is a mystery, though most indications point to some inherent genetic flaw. (William Howard Taft came closest, having what most observers agreed were boobs.)

Has never ceased to play;
The song the stars of morning sung
Has never died away.“

The Worship of Nature, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919)
