The Saloon (philosophically): "If it wasn't fer dese here guys in de wagon, and others like 'em, I'd lose me job."
"The good men in the United States, those who would like to see right and righteousness prevail in society and government, are in a majority. There is no doubt about that. These good men are the ones who really give significance and power to bad men and bad politics in this country. The good men who habitually ride in the band-wagon of corruption are the fellows who really keep that unsightly vehicle making its annual political pilgrimages down the pike.
