A comment on the Republican presidential candidate wannabe's
Howard Luck Gossage
He made so many witty, apt, and pithy observations that he often gave credit for his quotes to other people.
He died in 1969 and made the following comment at dinner in 1963, but it's exactly the same comment he might make today looking at the lineup of Republican wannabe's (actually, he'd probably make a wittier comment, but since he's not here, this will have to serve):
Look at the Names -- Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Michelle Bachmann, Ron Paul, Jon Huntsman, Tim Pawlenty... and I can see him sitting there, looking over his reading glasses and saying about any one of them:
"That man is trying to work his way up
to being a horse's ass...
But he hasn't got what it takes."
(Except for Ms Bachmann, of course, in which case it would be
"That woman is trying to work her way up ... But she hasn't got what it takes."
