Amusing political quotes

First, a quick definition:
Politics: n. [Poly "many" + tics "blood-sucking parasites"]

"Where else but in Washington could they call the department that's in charge of everything outside and out-of-doors the Department of the Interior." --Ronald Reagan

"Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber." --Plato

"The mistake a lot of politicians make is forgetting they've been appointed and thinking they've been anointed." --Claude Pepper

"Half of the American people have never read a newspaper. Half never voted for President. One hopes it is the same half." --Gore Vidal

"Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxicabs and cutting hair." --George Burns

"You know the world is going crazy when the top rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the US of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named 'Bush,' 'Dick,' and 'Colon.'" --Chris Rock

"The president has kept all the promises he intended to keep." --George Stephanopolous

And in light of my recent crap-tacular life, I end with my favorite political quote:
"There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full." --Henry Kissinger
