Humorous (And Frightening!) Quotes

Lighthearted amusement. We all need a laugh sometimes! Sorry for the lack of updates recently. Getting back to the old school grind has been insane. Lots of thoughts floating around though, and once I get a handle on my time management skills, I hope to be contributing more to my little online oasis of political musings.

-- Clarence Darrow (1857 - 1938)

Democracy means that anyone can grow up to be president, and anyone who doesn't grow up can be vice president.
--Johnny Carson (1925 - 2005)

A bureaucrat is a Democrat who holds some office that a Republican wants.

And now...quotes from Bush! Everybody's favorite....


Obviously no country can claim a special place in God's heart, yet we are better as a people because He has a special place in ours...I want to thank you for helping America, as Christ ordained, to be a light unto the world...
--President George Bush, commending the National Religious Broadcasters for their support in the war to drive Iraq from Kuwait

I believe with all my heart that one cannot be America's president without a belief in God, without the strength that your faith gives you.
--George Bush (1924 - ), to convention of National Religious Broadcasters

No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God.
