We Need Will Rogers Today

Yesterday I promised a sampler of Will Rogers' wit.

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

"Our constitution protects aliens, drunks, and U.S. Senators."

"There's no trick to being a humorist when you've got the government working for you."

To which I say, Well, nowadays the government is not working for me so much as I am working for the government. That's not funny.

I never knew he had such a wit! I like these.

Lin, he had a million of them!
"Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for."

Yet I worry that we are getting closer and closer to getting what we are paying for, or much more!

And one of my favorites: "We can't all be heroes; someone has to sit on the curb and clap."
