Random collection of quotes on politicians:

Ernest Benn:

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

Groucho Marx:

Those are my principles.  If you don’t like them, I have others.

Dick Armey:

Three groups spend other people’s money: children, thieves, politicians. All three need supervision.

Will Rogers:

The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other.  The one that’s out always looks the best.

Joseph Sobran:

The difference between a politician and a pickpocket is that a pickpocket doesn’t always get indignant when you tell him to keep his hands to himself.

Politicians never accuse you of  ‘greed’ for wanting other people’s money — only for wanting to keep your own money.

Mark Twain:

Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.

Henry Cate VII:

The problem with political jokes is they get elected.

Thomas Sowell:

There is nothing that politicians like better than handing out benefits to be paid for by someone else.

In politics, the truth is strictly optional and that also seems to be true in parts of the media.

You have to have a sense of humor if you follow politics. Otherwise, the sheer fraudulence of it all will get you down.

If politicians stopped meddling with things they didn’t understand, there would be a more drastic reduction in the size of government than anyone in either party advocates.

Charley Reese:

Experience to a politician is like experience to a prostitute — not much to recommend them.

Ronald Reagan:

Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

Milton Friedman:

If you really want to engage in policy activity, don’t make that your vocation.  Make it your avocation.  Get a job.  Get a secure base of income.  Otherwise, you’re going to get corrupted and destroyed.
