FAMOUS ATTRIBUTED QUOTE:
“An honest politician is one who’s never been caught.”
“An honest politician is either a hypocrite — or he is doomed.”
“An honest politician is regarded as a sort of marvel, like a calf with five legs, and the news that one has appeared is commonly received with derision.”
“In the good old days, an honest politician was one who lied only when he had to. But now lies are becoming the accepted language of government at the highest levels, the theory being that sooner or later the people of the country will become so confused and disillusioned that they will just mind their own business, and leave governing to well-placed liars.”
