I'm looking for a quote, including the guy who said it and preferably the context. The general idea of the quote is that
one would never serve a public so stupid as to elect one to high office.

Groucho Marx once said something like "I'd never join a club that would have me as a member."
And IIRC Mark Twain once said something like, "I couldn't possibly lead people dumb enough to elect me."

And Abraham Lincoln once wrote in a letter something like, "I would never marry anyone blockhead enough to have me."

I believe that it was Pat Paulson that said "If nominated, I will not run. If elected, I will not serve. If impeached, they'll have to throw me out."
