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:
"Italy is now a great country to invest in... today we have fewer communists and those who are still there deny having been one. Another reason to invest in Italy is that we have beautiful secretaries... superb girls."

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".

She must have meant the mother suffered from it.

I'm not a politician
- 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)

Yup! My handy Latin dictionary gives two translations for the English verb "to drink": "bibere" and "potare". I guess the choice depends on what you're drinking. We're drinking some Russian potato vodka right now.
