Quote(s) of the Day

With Congress now back in session, I thought it might be a good day to roll out some oldies-but-goodies.

Alexis De Tocqueville:

The debates of that great assembly are frequently vague and perplexed, seeming to be dragged rather than to march, to the intended goal. Something of this sort must, I think, always happen in public democratic assemblies.

Henry David Thoreau:

If we were left solely to the wordy wit of legislators in Congress for our guidance, uncorrected by the seasonal experience and the effectual complaints of the people, America would not long retain her rank among the nations.

Mark Twain:

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

Will Rogers:

This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.

With Congress, every time they make a joke it's a law, and every time they make a law it's a joke.

Personally, every time Congress goes into session, regardless of who's in charge, I'm inclined to hide my wallet and clean my shotguns.
