Politics Defined by Groucho

Groucho Marx may be Panderbear's all time favorite comedian. You may have noticed some of his quotes gracing the right column of Liar! Liar! blog pages. His humor was concise, to the point, and at once painful and truthful. His definition of politics is no exception.

"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies." - Groucho Marx

For your amusement here are a few more of Groucho's apolitical quotes:

"Well, these are my principles; if you don't like them I have others."

"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read."

"I don't care to belong to a club that accepts people like me as members."

"One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know."

"I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it."

"I intend to live forever, or die trying."

  5. Interestingly, just watched an interview he did with William F. Buckley in 1967, in which Buckley refers to Groucho as a "political liberal" because he voted for "Wilkie" in 1940 rather than FDR (FDR was of course Democrat and Wilkie Republican).

  6. I really like people unique writing. Will probably be quality to uncover just one reveal with text on the center and in some cases purity in this particular unique vital area of interest will likely be conveniently encountered. Reality Paper

  7. In this period of false reverence, the author has composed each word with everything that is in him filled it.
