To the editor:

I've come across some witticisms made decades ago that seem appropriate for today.

Politics — it's not whether you win or lose, it's how you place the blame.

Congress is so strange. A person gets up to speak and says nothing. Nobody listens. And then everybody disagrees. (Boris Marshalov)

Power is a drug in which the politicians are hooked. They buy it from the voters, using the voters' own money. (R.J. Needham)

Accusation: You point the finger of accusation at someone and three fingers are pointing back at you. (My mother)
