Hump Day Political Humor!




Get over hump day with some political humor! Here are a few lighthearted quotes from politicians to get you through the rest of your week.

This week we're starting with the beginning of the history of American political humor and going through a quote from President Reagan.


“I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two a law firm, and three or more a Congress.”

       John Adams


“If I had two faces, do you think I would be wearing this one?”

          Abraham Lincoln


When Reagan was horseback riding with Queen Elizabeth, the Queen's horse let out a very loud fart. She turned to the President and said,

“Excuse me.”

Reagan responded with,

“Glad you told me or I would have thought it was the horse.”

         Ronald Reagan
