NUMBER: 1385
AUTHOR: Will Rogers (1879–1935)
QUOTATION: I have no Politics. I am for the Party that is out of Power, no matter which one it is. But I will give you my word that, in case of my appointment, I will not be a Republican; I will do my best to pull with you, and not embarrass you. In fact, my views on European affairs are so in accord with You, Mr. President, that I might almost be suspected of being a Democrat.
ATTRIBUTION: WILL ROGERS, letter to President Warren Harding offering to replace the American ambassador to the Court of St. James’s in England.—Rogers, The Illiterate Digest, p. 172 (1924).
