Election Day!

Here are some quotes to think about as you go to the polls:

"If pigs could vote, the man with the slop bucket would be elected swineherd every time, no matter how much slaughtering he did on the side." ~ Orson Scott Card

"Vote: The instrument and symbol of a free man's power to make a fool of himself and a wreck of his country." ~ Ambrose Bierce

"I guess truth can hurt you worse in an election than about anything that can happen to you." ~ Will Rogers

"Why is the index finger the most powerful thing in the world? Because it pulls the lever on election day." ~ read once on the comic page - I think it was a B.C. comic strip.

Maggie,

You might add these from Eugene McCarthy to your list:

"Being in politics is like being a football coach. You have have to be smart enough to understand the game, and dumb enough to think it's important."

"It is dangerous for a national candidate to say things that people might remember."
