Milton Friedman on Politicians

More elegant than Will Rogers, I suppose:

"Those of us who are repeatedly frustrated by the failure of elected representatives to fit the deed to the word are asking for a barking cat."

Here's a Rogers offering:

This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.

But a more, ah, satisfying Rogers quote is this one:

There ought to be one day-- just one-- when there is open season on senators.
