Old saying

A politician uses history the way a drunk uses a street lamp -- for support rather than illumination.

The saying reminds me of the old story of the drunk who was found crawling around on the street under the street light. When asked by a passer by what he was doing, he responded, "I dropped my car keys and I'm looking for them."

Passer by: "Where did you drop them?"

Drunk: "Half a block down the street."

Passer by: "Why are you looking for them here?"

Drunk: "Its dark down there, so I looking for them here where there is enough light."
