Not a great candidate for Quote of the Year, but worth reporting:

There was a Louisiana politician in the politically incorrect days of 1983, a man equal parts corrupt and quotable named Edwin Edwards, who said the only way he could lose an election “is if I’m caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy.” Horrible. Pushed to the wall, Alabama Republicans responded with Moore’s Law: Getting caught with live girls is fatal, too. 

The reference to "Moore's Law" (see among others https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moore%27s_law) is to a prediction by Gordon Moore of Intel that the number of circuit elements that could be placed on a chip would double every two years.
