funny election quotes

i got these quotes from a magazine that ben gets, the progressive farmer.  there were several more, but i picked my favorites...  enjoy!

"bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote."  -george jean nathan

"always vote for principal, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost."  -john quincy adams

"why pay money to have your family tree traced; go into politics and your opponents will do it for you."  -mark twain

"george washington is the only president who didn't blame the previous administration for his troubles."  -unknown

"a politician thinks of the next election.  a statesman, of the next generation."  -james freeman clarke

"for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and honesty."  -1 timothy 2:2

"isn't it a little ironic?  we pick politicians by how they look on t.v. and miss america on where she stands on the issues.  isn't that a little backwards?"  -jay leno

"vote for the man who promises least.  he'll be the least disappointing."  -bernard baruch
