Power, Intelligence, and Politics

Don't you wish there were a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence? There's one marked 'Brightness,' but it doesn't work.
-- Gallagher

If absolute power corrupts absolutely, does absolute powerlessness make you pure?
-- Harry Shearer

An honest politician is one who, when he is bought, will stay bought.
-- Simon Cameron

-- Albert Einstein
