Edmund Burke on Croker and Tammany

"Edmund Burke on Croker and Tammany" is an earnest satire by Mark Twain. It was first written for the North American Review, then given as a campaign speech by Twain, then published in New York by the Economist Press in 1901. It arose from Twain's involvement in a campaign for the mayoralty of New York City. Twain's squib was widely credited with helping to defeat Croker.
