Some Great Political Humor

Some Great Political Humor

            Here is some of the best political humor I have ever read or heard.

“The American people today are tired of disorder, disruption, and disrespect for the law. America wants to come back to the law as a way of life, and as we do come back to the law, the memory of this great man, who never left the law as a way of life, will be accorded even more honor….” [The Subversives, p. 492]

            Why is this so funny? Because these are the words of President Richard Nixon, honoring J. Edgar Hoover at Hoover’s funeral in the year 1972, or shortly before Nixon had to resign the presidency because of his illegal acts and not all that long before the nation learned of the extent of Hoover’s disrespect for the law. You can’t make stuff like this up.
