 "The more money an American accumulates the less interesting he himself becomes."
 "'Liberal' comes from the Latin liberalis, which means pertaining to a free man. In politics, to be liberal is to want to extend democracy through change and reform. One can see why the word had to be erased from our political lexicon."
 “Half of the American people have never read a newspaper. Half never voted for President. One hopes it is the same half.”
 "A narcissist is someone better looking than you are."
