Will Rogers, that is:

"If Stupidity got us into this mess, then why can't it get us out?"

"Diplomats are just as essential to starting a war as soldiers are for finishing it.... You take diplomacy out of war, and the thing would fall flat in a week."

"It's not what you pay a man, but what he costs you that counts."

"I don't care how little your country is, you got a right to run it like you want to. When the big nations quit meddling, then the world will have peace."

"Now if there is one thing that we do worse than any other nation, it is try and manage somebody else's affairs."

"Liberty don't work as good in practice as it does in speeches."

"We'll show the world we are prosperous, even if we have to go broke to do it."

"Things will get better -- despite our efforts to improve them."

"Politics is the best show in America. I love animals and I love politicians and I love to watch both of 'em play either back home in their native state or after they have been captured and sent to the zoo or to Washington."

America is a nation that conceives many odd inventions for getting somewhere but it can think of nothing to do once it gets there.
