Silly Sunday

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, in fact if you don't like rules then just ignore the few that are posted below. This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. I'll do my very best to visit everyone's Silly Sunday post.

Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!
  • Blog about something funny, silly or laughable – a joke, comic, funny story, etc
  • Add the URL of your funny blog post on the Silly Sunday Linky for the week below.

We hang petty thieves and appoint the great thieves to public office.
~Aesop, Greek slave & fable author

Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.
~Plato, ancient Greek Philosopher

Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.
~Nikita Khrushchev, Russian Soviet politician

When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I’m beginning to believe it
~Quoted in ‘Clarence Darrow for the Defense’ by Irving Stone.

Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.
~John Quinton, American actor/writer

Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.
~Oscar Ameringer, “the Mark Twain of American Socialism.”

I offered my opponents a deal: “if they stop telling lies about me, I will stop telling the truth about them”.
~Adlai Stevenson, campaign speech, 1952..

A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.
~Texas Guinan. 19th century American businessman

I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians.
~Charles de Gaulle, French general & politician

Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.
~Doug Larson (English middle-distance runner who won gold medals at the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris, 1902-1981)

I am reminded of a joke: What happens if a politician drowns in a river?
That is pollution!
What happens if all of them drown?
That is solution!!!

  1. Oh! dear LOL these are all spot on I really do not like politicians the lot we got in here at the moment are proving to be heartless nasty and all out for themselves...nothing new there then.

    Have the silliest of Sunday's ;-)

  2. Hilarious. Did you know that New Zealand claims to have the second least corrupt govt in the world. - LOL, I read that in a book about the country, so before you ask, it didn't say who was first.

    Happy Silly Sunday (I was silly today too)

  3. I've always heard that the truth hurts but after reading these I think the truth is pretty darn funny :)

  7. What do you have when a politician is buried up to his neck in sand?

    Not enough sand! =))

  8. Why were these quotes so gentle with them?

  9. Those are all great and like Odie, I will have to add one: Politicians will complicate the obvious and trivialize the momentous!

  10. These would all be very funny if they weren't so true. Thanks for the chuckles. Have great day.

  11. LOL! These quotations certainly hit the nail on the head! Enjoy the rest of your day Sandee.

  12. Here's a political representation that REALLY IS bipartisan!! :)

  13. Yes! Yes to all of these!

  14. It would be nice to be rid of the system we have. Only there doesn't seem to be any that are better.

  15. Politicians and diapers should be changed often, and for the same reason.

    Good ones...all too true.

    Big hugs, honey...
