Droll Report: Mark Twain On Modern Politics

Following are comments derived from the sayings of Mark Twain

Mark Twain on war in Iraq: “We inflame wild beasts with the smell of blood and then innocently wonder at the wave of brutal appetite that seeps the land as a consequence.”

“It is a peculiarity of American political life we have two sets of morals in stock–one spoken and one performed.”

The political and commercial morals of the Bush administration are not merely food for laughter, they are an entire banquet.

Republicans trot out their morals on Sunday and devote the rest of the week sprinting to the finish line of immorality.

Twain on Bush/Rumsfeld/Cheney: “I haven’t a particle of confidence in a man whose only redeeming vice is not knowing he has any vices.”

Republicans utter words of optimism that all problems will be solved by cutting taxes. I wonder if optimism makes them asses or is it being an ass makes them an optimist?

The past few years of Republican rule have achieved fewer accomplishments than a fire hydrant. At least the fire hydrant affords a place where dog can piss.

One of the perks of being Barack Obama. Just sit back and watch the Republican incompetents in Congress vie to win the championship of incompetence.

The only way Rush Limbaugh could express a truly unique idea is to place him in the Garden of Eden before Adam and Eve showed up.

The Village Idiot attended a recent meeting of Republican congressmen. They all stood in awe at being in the presence of their teacher.
