From Magic City Morning Star|
We hang petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.
Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.
When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I'm beginning to believe it.
Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.
Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.
I offered my opponents a deal: "if they stop telling lies about me, I will stop telling the truth about them".
A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.
I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians.
Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.
I am reminded of a joke: What happens if a politician drowns in a river? That's pollution.
