Chauncey Depew

If you will refrain from telling any lies about the Republican Party, I'll promise not to tell the truth about the Democrats.
(Here's another good line from a politician.  Depew was the attorney for Cornelius Vanderbilt -- one of the richest men in American history -- and a US Senator from New York from 1899 to 1911.  Democratic presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson apparently stole Depew's idea and used it -- vice versa, of course -- in a 1952 campaign speech.)
