The Wit and Wisdom of Will Rogers

Sometimes, like watching Democrats blunder along on the middle-class tax cut issue, the only thing that makes life bearable is remembering Will Rogers.
  • I'm not a member of any organized political party.... I'm a Democrat.
  • The Senate just sits and waits till they find out what the president wants, so they know how to vote against him.
  • The Democrats and the Republicans are equally corrupt where money is concerned. It's only in the amount where the Republicans excel.
  • Democrats never agree on anything, that's why they're Democrats. If they agreed with each other, they would be Republicans.
  • 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.
  • A Republican moves slowly. They are what we call conservatives. A conservative is a man who has plenty of money and doesn't see any reason why he shouldn't always have plenty of money. A Democrat is a fellow who never had any, but doesn't see any reason why he shouldn't have some.
  • We have the best Congress money can buy.
  • One wants recovery to start from the bottom, and the other wants it to start from the top. I don't know which is right. I've never heard of anybody suggesting that they might start it in the middle, so I hereby make that suggestion. To start recovery halfway between the two, because it's the middle class that does everything anyhow. But I don't know anything about it...
  • Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.
And, finally, some good advice for everyone.
  • Never let yesterday use up too much of today.
