Political Perceptions

The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.

Winston Churchill

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile hoping it will eat him last.

He looks like a female llama surprised while bathing.

Winston Churchill on Clement Atlee.

The House of Lords is like a glass of champagne that has stood for five days.

Clement Atlee

Political pun:

Clement Freud calling Mrs Thatcher : Attila the hen.

You realise you are no longer in Government when you get in the back of your car and it does not go anywhere. MalcolmRifkind

 My position on cake is pro- having it and pro-eating it.  Boris Johnson.

The trouble with socialism is you eventually run out of other people’s money.  Mrs Thatcher.

Liberals love America like OJ loved Nicole.  Republican commentator Ann Coulter.

Only two things are necessary to keep one’s wife happy.  First let her think she is having her own way.  And second, let her have it.  Lyndon B Johnson

If ignorance is bliss, then you must be one happy liberal.  American bumper sticker.  The last word may be interchangeable.

A Communist is one who has nothing and wishes to share it with the world.  Anon

Gordon Brown looking like a bad tempered wardrobe in a suit.

I must say I like a lot of these EXCEPT, the Ann Coulter quote. She is an Ultra Conservative Tea-Party A**Hole!! (Sorry for swearing on your Blog, my dear Pat...But, I just cannot abide her! If anything the quote should be about her. She claims to love America, but in actuality HATES Americans...! OY!

"Attila The Hen"...mean, but funny!

I quite like the Rifkind quote.

I'm not sure what Ann Coulter is trying to say / do.

Is she saying that American citizens who hold political views different from hers should be compared to a man who was accused of murder? What if Nicole had family / friends who are Liberals? How do they feel about what she said?

It's a strange way to persuade others to consider your point of view. It's a good way to alienate citizens.
