“Honesty in politics is like oxygen—the higher up you go, the scarcer it becomes”

“Honesty in politics is much like oxygen—the higher up you go, the scarcer it becomes” is a humorous saying about politics that’s cited frequently on the internet. George D. Madison used the saying on June 25, 1991 in the newsgroup soc.motss; a month later, a message in another newsgroup gave Madison credit.

Honesty in politics is much like oxygen.
The higher up you go,
the scarcer it becomes.
