Pop Quiz - Who Said It? - Open Post

By Leadfoot_LA

Alrighty, Polgaters, it’s time for a lightning fast round of “Who Said It?” Test your political and/or pop culture knowledge by selecting the correct person who uttered each quote. We will post answers tomorrow. You will grade your own papers, so don’t email us. You may debate answers in the comments – but NO Googling! That would be dishonest. Not as dishonest as faking a pregnancy for political gain, but still. You all are above that. Good luck!

5) "Seriously. (The Declaration of Independence) is an incredible document. I think people either forget about it or have been taught it too early in their lives.
