Be careful of political jokes, they sometimes get elected by Tom Reynolds

Years ago, politicians and the government were the equal opportunity butts of jokes. That was before the government was seen as the answer to all problems. (You shouldn’t make jokes about your savior). A century ago, Will Rogers was one of the best at taking a bipartisan look at the fallacies of both parties. Many of his jokes are as timely today as they were then.


It's easy being a humorist when you've got the whole government working for you.

I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.

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

Late night talk show hosts

Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.

Buying political offices hasn’t changed

A fool and his money are soon elected.

Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated. America has the best politicians money can buy.

Political Parties

Democrats are the only reason to vote for Republicans.

The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, the more you've got to admit that each party is worse than the other.

I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat.

The difference between a Republican and a Democrat is that the Democrat is a cannibal, they live off each other, while the Republicans live off the Democrats.

Politicians are just a bunch of local bandits, sent by their local voters to raid the public treasury.

Was Rogers Against Mail in voting?

There is only one redeeming thing about this whole election. It will be over at sundown.

Did he foresee Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi?

I don't know who started the idea that a President must be a Politician instead of a Business man. A Politician can't run any other kind of business. So, there is no reason why he can run the U.S. That's the biggest single business in the World.

A president just can't make much showing against congress. They lay awake nights, thinking up things to be against the president on.

Trump’s Foreign Policy

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'Nice doggie' until you can find a rock.

Bernie Sanders and followers?

A conservative is a man who has plenty of money and doesn't see any reason why he shouldn't always have plenty of money. A Democrat is a fellow who never had any, but doesn't see any reason why he shouldn't have some.
