A Little Political Humor...!

I figured that there must be something besides the politicians to laugh at during this election time! There is and I found a bit of it!

Let's face it! We need all the grins we can get before the elections...because we all know that the real laughs will come after the elections, when we see just what and who managed to get put into office!

Are you ready? Then here we go...!

Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly and for the same reason."
-- Author unknown

"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy."
-- Earnest Benn

"When I was a boy, I was told that anybody could become president; I'm beginning to believe it."
-- Clarence Darrow

"Democracy is being allowed to vote for the candidate you dislike least."
-- Robert Byrne

"If you can't convince them, confuse them."
-- Harry Truman

"You can lead a man to Congress, but you can't make him think."
-- Milton Berle

"The problem with political jokes is they get elected."
-- Author unknown

"The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn't work and then they get elected and prove it."
-- P.J. O'Rourke

"When I was on my way to the podium, a gentleman stopped me and said I was as good a politician as I was an actor. What a cheap shot!"
-- Arnold Schwarzenegger

"The first presidential debate was down in Florida. Residents spent all day putting plywood on their televisions."
-- David Letterman

"Asking an incumbent member of Congress to vote for term limits is a bit like asking a chicken to vote for Colonel Sanders."
-- Bob Inglis

"If elected, I will win."
-- Pat Paulsen

It's a shame that the upcoming elections don't hold a promise of better leaders and a better future...but take my word for it, boys and girls, any light to speak of in our future will be furnished by us!

Don't look to any government agency, elected officials, or any one person that has the stench of politics hanging over them like a dark, foreboding cloud! Regardless of whatever promises, bribes, or rewards they may offer...all you need to do is to look back at past performance, and learn the lessons that history provides!

Those that don't learn from history, are doomed to repeat it!

Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a bit! There's a bit of history that bears repeating, for sure!

Unless your MD allows fedgtov to micromanage all medical treatment
he will be fined $100K first time, and go to jail second time.

You will interested that fedgov computes how much money to spend on you depending on your age.

Time to secede.

Hey, Mister Hermit sir - I just read a story that made me grin, and it's political! Seems in Denver they're considering forming a commision to study and help allay the effects of extraterrestrial encounters. No kidding - funded by donations, grants, and whatnot. Bless their hearts...

What Shakespeare said about lawyers should apply to politicians as well.

Hey Christer...
They are amusing, aren't they? We all need a little fun from time to time!

Thanks for coming by today!

Hey Vlad...
They just can't keep their fingers out of everyone's business! The need or want of power is just too great!

Thanks for the link...and for coming by today!

Hey K...
Probably a good thing for them to study, since so many of them seem to have their heads in the clouds (or other places) most of the time!

I'll pass on your birthday wishes to Nanny! And don't worry! I do know what a Dodo bird was!

You have a great day, my friend, and thank you for coming by!

Hey Momlady...
Sometimes quotes from some of the older guys hit the nail on the head!

Momlady I think when he said that he was thinking that is where they all are anyway.So he would be killing two birds with one stone.

I was just thinking if the Republicans take back control of the house this country is going to get screwed by profesionals with thier own JOHN

Hey Mechanic...
You have a great day as well, my friend! Thank you for taking the time to visit!

Hey Ted...
So many of the historical writers addresses many of the same problems we have today!

Guess that it's true...the more things change, the more they stay the same!

You have a great day and thanks for coming by today!

Hey AV...
That's a fact, my friend! That's a fact!

I appreciate the visit today!

Hey Ken...
Now that's a certainty, buddy! Screwed either way!

Many thanks for coming by today!
