“David and I like off-color jokes, Freddie likes more sophisticated jokes. … Charles likes golf.” – Bill Koch, describing the four Koch brothers in an Associated Press interview

“We’ve had to change a lot of things in Kansas since I came in.” – Gov. Sam Brownback, in USA Today, on why the gubernatorial race appears to be so close

“It’s an odd thing, but I’ve noticed this. People don’t like paying taxes.” – Brownback again, speaking in Garden City

“He was butt naked!” – Topeka resident Natasha Shamblin, who was surprised to see a naked man walking along the street (which, it turns out, is legal in Kansas)
