A recent article briefly mentioned the educational background of the above-mentioned Republican Senator from the land of Mardi Gras and promised to send a list of humorous quotes attributed to him as to “what I believe”.

The material having arrived in a plain brown envelope from another unidentified source the 15 items may be worth repeating:

  • 1.) “I believe America was founded by geniuses but is now run by idiots;
  • 2.) I believe you can’t fix stupid, but you can vote them out of office;
  • 3.) When was the last time you heard of anyone trying to sneak into China?;
  • 4.) America is so great that people who hate it refuse to leave it;
  • 5.) (Omitted because of political content against a politician in one of the two major parties);
  • 6.) I don’t like to brag about the expensive places I’ve been to, but this morning I went to the gas station;
  • 7.) I believe exercise makes you look better naked, but so does alcohol;
  • 8.) Welfare should be a bridge, not a parking lot;
  • 9.) Weakness invites the wolves;
  • 10.) We must arm for peace;
  • 11.) We don’t have a gun control problem, we have an idiot control problem;
  • 12.) Free advice friends, if government tells you not to buy a gun, buy two;
  • 13.) I believe if you hate police officers, the next time you are in trouble, call a crack-head;
  • 14.) Here’s a free tip, cops will leave you alone if you don’t do stupid things;
  • 15.) I believe we need an election day, not an election month; and
  • 16.) I believe you should be able to prove who you say you are when you vote.”

(In the crazy world of today a dose of homespun humor may be needed!)
