    From some funny folks:
    If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates.
    ~Jay Leno~


    The problem with political jokes is they get elected.
    ~Henry Cate, VII~


    We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
    ~Aesop~


    If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union
    speeches, there wouldn't be any inducement to go to heaven.
    ~Will Rogers~


    Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where
    there is no river.
    ~Nikita Khrushchev~


    When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I'm
    beginning to believe it.
    ~Clarence Darrow~


    Why pay money to have your family tree traced; go into politics and your
    opponents will do it for you.
    ~Author unknown~


    Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go
    out and buy some more tunnel.
    ~John Quinton~


    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~


    I offer my opponents a bargain if they will stop telling lies about us,
    I will stop telling the truth about them.
    ~Adlai Stevenson, campaign speech, 1952~


    A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.
    ~ Tex Guinan~


    I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be
    left to the politicians.
    ~Charles de Gaulle~


    Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to
    change the locks.
    ~Doug Larson~


    There ought to be one day -- just one -- when there is open season on
    senators.
    Mark Twain

    And the congregation says Amen...
