Hilarious quotes from politicians

  1. Jan 2, 2012 #1
    I came across few dumb republicans' quotes. But, I didn't find any place appropriate for posting those. Neither, I wanted to single out one party. So, I created a thread for quotes from all the politicians.

    The quotes can either be clever or just dumb.

    Starting off with my two favorite politicians.

    Silvio Berlusconi:

    Putin:
    When Hilary Clinton said Vladimir Putin doesn't have a soul, Putin responded "At a minimum, a head of state should have a head".

    "Why should I go and do something like that? But the Lord says, 'Be submissive wives; you are to be submissive to your husbands."

    She must have meant the mother suffered from it.

    "You all look like happy campers to me. Happy campers you are, happy campers you have been, and, as far as I am concerned, happy campers you will always be."

    - Michele Bachmann [five minutes ago]

    Of course, based on the primary results in Iowa, her statement could be taken as accurate.

    So "potato" is a verb? My Latin-English dictionary has a word "potatio" which it translates as a feminine noun: drinking (which is what I'm doing right now)
