One-Liner Wednesday — Politics and Money

“There are two things that are important in politics. The first is money, and I can’t remember what the second one is.”

Mark Hanna, American businessman and Republican Senator from Ohio

Mark Hanna was a U.S. Senator representing the state of Ohio from 1897 through his death in February 1904. He also served as chairman of the Republican National Committee.

His quote demonstrates how little has changed over more than a century about what Republican politicians think is important.


Written for Linda G. Hill’s One-Liner Wednesday prompt.
