James Boren was a public servant turned humorist, who used his time working in the Washington D.C. bureaucracy as a subject for his humor. Boren hosted mock presidential campaigns (he ran in 1984 and 1992, the latter time for the Apathy Party of America) and coined several key phrases, “When in Doubt, Mumble” and “Dynamic Inaction” to distinguish his platform. The former refers to his most frequently cited and well-known line, “When in doubt, mumble; when in trouble, delegate; when in charge, ponder.”
