* Some thoughts on politics Elections
The Russian democracy is vastly superior to the American democracy. In Russia, we know the result of elections a week before they take place. In America, the result of the election is a week after it takes place.
-Vladimir Putin (Russian President) Guns / Arms Control
A woman has narrowly failed to assassinate President Gerald Ford. There are too many guns in this country in the hands of people who do not know how to use them.
-Hubert Humphrey (Vice President / Presidential candidate)
We’ve got the kind of President (George H Bush?) who thinks arms control means some kind of deodorant.
-Patricia Schroeder (1988 Presidential candidate) Presidential Candidates
Democracy means anyone can grow up to be the President; and anyone who doesn’t grow up can be vice-president.
-Johnny Carson (Tonight Show Host) Bill Clinton’s mistake
The biggest mistake that Bill Clinton made was not getting Teddy Kennedy to drive Monica Lewinsky home.
-Dennis Leary (Actor / Comedian) Economic Plan
Gordon Brown (British Politician) bases his politics on the Dolly Parton School of Economics – unbelievable figure, blown out of all proportion, with no visible means of supports.
-Kenneth Clarke (British Politician) Politician
What this country needs is more unemployed politicians.
-Angela Davis (American politician / Civil Right Activist)
