Thoughts for Election Day

I have the unfortunate luck to live in one of those highly critical states where the political ads, door-knockers with brochures and recorded phone messages have been driving everyone crazy for weeks.  I for one, will be happy when the election is over. This is just disgusting.

To try to bring some levity to the day, here are some great political and election-related quotes.  🙂

“Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.” ~~ Douglas Adams

“Too bad the only people who know how to run the country are busy driving cabs and cutting hair.” ~~ George Burns

“I think the world is run by ‘C’ students.” ~~ Al McGuire

“An honest politician is one who, when he is bought, will stay bought.” ~~ Simon Cameron

“Sure there are dishonest men in local government. But there are dishonest men in national government too.” ~~ Richard M. Nixon
