I got an email titled ‘Old Sayings Still True Today:’

  • If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates – Jay Leno
  • The problem with political jokes is they get elected
  • We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office – Aesop
  • When I was a boy I was told anyone could become President; I’m beginning to believe it – Clarence Darrow
  • Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first – Ronald Reagan
  • 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 – Oscar Ameringer
  • A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country – Tex Guinan
  • We’d all like to vote for the best man, but he’s never a candidate.

Humor helps.
