Toasts to Politics and Politicians

To Washington, our country's capital, where the roads, and everything else, go around in circles.

Here's to the honest politician who, as defined by Simon Cameron, "when he is bought, will stay bought."

Here's to the politician-a person who straddles an Issue when he isn't dodging one.

To the politician-a person who divides his time between running for office and running for cover.

Here's to our politician-a man who stands for what he thinks others will fall for.

To our newly elected officials. May they do only a minimal amount of damage this session.

To our flag, long may it wave; And to our politicians, long may they rave!

Give us pure candidates and a pure ballot box,

And our freedom shall stand as firm as the rocks.
