The Political Bible of Humorous Quotations from American Politics: Politicians Unplugged: What they Said -- When they Said it -- And Why
Grab your hat and fasten your safety belt. You are about to embark on a ride which will take you on a whirlwind tour through the bizarre back streets of American politics. If you think politicians are just stiffs wearing suits, think again.
The quotations contained in this book evidence the peculiar nature of politicians. They will surprise you, amaze you, and at times will cause you to laugh out loud. This book is jam-packed with over a thousand “unusual” political quotes. This book is not a traditional book of flat, static quotations listing one quote directly after another, but is truly “three-dimensional,” including the quotation, a brief explanation of the context in which each quote was spoken, and a related picture to boot. So take a chance and see if you are not surprised, or amazed, or even dumbstruck by what our politicians think and say. You may never look at politicians in the same way again.
The “teasers” below highlight the scope of the odd material that you will discover within this book. * Which President, after losing renomination from his own party, deadpanned: “There is nothing left to do but get drunk.” * Which U.S. Representative called his redheaded colleague: “A Howdy Doody looking nimrod.” * Which U.S. Senator characterized luncheons attended by U.S. Congressmen and lobbyists as including: “anything you can eat, drink, or fornicate in one afternoon.” * Which political candidate after losing an election complained: “The people have spoken. The bastards.” * Which Governor, noting the corruption of his state’s electoral process, quipped: “When I die, I want to be buried in St. Martin’s Parish so I can remain politically active.”
