Conservative Wit: A Dictionary of Conservative Political Humor, Edited by Robert Golla

The power of humor in politics is well known, and Conservative Wit, the first quotationary dedicated to conservative humor, brings together thousands of quotations from an international cast of speakers and writers. In this revised and expanded edition, Robert Golla has drawn quips from the Founding Fathers, statesmen, politicians, businessmen, athletes, movie stars, and the present day champions of liberty. Among the newly included economists and historians are Adam Smith, Edmund Burke, Alexis de Tocqueville, Samuel Johnson and Friedrich Hayek. Writers and poets, including Hawthorne, Tennyson, T.S. Eliot, Evelyn Waugh, Vladimir Nabokov, Tom Wolfe and David Mamet are among the many contributions made by literary conservatives. The gentler tones of religious figures, from Saint Augustine to G.K. Chesterton, offset the rough and tumble barbs of modern pundits like Rush Limbaugh, George Will, and the dazzlingly erudite William F. Buckley, Jr.

Conservative Wit will provide hours of entertainment and enlightenment, the indulgence of which should be entirely bipartisan - though the reader can proceed with the assurance that the content is not.
