Oh Those Politicians… 

(JUST A MINUTE)    While politicians may not seem to be worth much at times, they can provide us with some great comedic material! Humorist Will Rogers made note of that in several comments during his lifetime…

  1. “A fool and his money are soon elected”
  2. “I’m not a member of any organized political party. I’m a Democrat”
  3. “Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for”
  4. “The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets”
  5. “I don’t make jokes. I just watch government and report the facts”
  6. “Alexander Hamilton started the U.S. Treasury with nothing, and that was the closest our country has ever been to being even”
  7. “I have a scheme for stopping war…no nation is allowed to enter a war ’till they have paid for the last one”
  8. “Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated”
  9. “About all I can say about the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation”
  10. “The more you observe politics, the more you’ve got to admit that each party is worse than the other”
  11. “If you ever injected truth into politics, you have no politics”
  12. “Things in out country run in spite of government, not by aid of it”
  13. “The income tax has made liars out of more Americans than golf”
  14. “It’s easy being a humorist when you’ve got the whole government working for you”
  15. “Ohio claims they are due a president as they haven’t had one since *Taft. Look at the United States, they have not had one since Lincoln”

*NOTE: Ohio did have one president after Taft…Warren G. Harding, (1921-1923). He died of a heart attack while in office.
