KGB Official Report: Cyberquote of the Week



Political observers are reporting that the following assertion, attributed to a well-known government official, was posted this week on the official Russian KGB Report website. The statement described the American system of government as a ruling body characterized by total depravity:

"Corrupted by wealth and power, your government is like a restaurant with only one dish. They've got a set of Republican waiters on one side and a set of Democratic waiters on the other side. But no matter which set of waiters brings you the dish, the legislative grub is all prepared in the same Wall Street kitchen."

Who made these comments? Huey Pierce Long (August 30, 1893 – September 10, 1935). Huey Long was the American politician who served as the Governor of Louisiana from 1928 to 1932 and as a United States Senator from 1932 to 1935.

But, to be sure, that was back in the days when American politics was quite different.
