Advise and Checkout -- Political Fiction
Bethany Branch Books Talk -- January 25, 2007
Layne P.

"Money is the mother's milk of politics." -- Jesse Marvin Unruh [1922-1987]

"An honest politician is one who when he's brought stays bought." -- Simon Cameron [1799-1889]

"Politicians are a set of men who have interests aside from the interests of the people, and who, to say the most of them, are, taken as a mass, at least one long step removed from honest men. I say this with the greater freedom because, being a politician, myself, none can read it as personal." -- Abraham Lincoln [1809-1865]
