    Everyone should read Twain’s comments on the Spanish American War. What would he have thought about the War in Iraq?

    Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.
    .
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
    .
    In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards.
    .
    It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native criminal class except Congress.

    We have the best government that money can buy.

    The trouble ain’t that there is too many fools, but that the lightning ain’t distributed right.

    Thank you all very much. Admiral Kelly, Captain Card, officers and sailors of the USS Abraham Lincoln, my fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed. (Applause.)

    Clemens and Will Rogers both were excellent at identifying the problem, and addressing it with humor. My maternal grandfather grew up with Will Rogers, so maybe that’s why I particularly like his “observations” and style?


    One of our greatest problems today is the inability of so many to use, recognize, or comprehend either irony or humor.

    Hey, RT! This is the comments section of the editorial cartoons. You surely know the primary rule of commenting here: “Thou shalt not ever post a funny or witty item, particularly if you employ a Pastis-worthy pun!”
