To keep you in pseudoprofound quotes for a long time, I recommend The Ruling Asses, by Steven Robbins, which is a compendium of idiocy (mostly) and wit (occasional) from prominent politicians, organised by category.

From the cover:
'I never make predictions. I never have, and I never will' - Tony Blair

Andym,

George W. Bush surely has one (or possibly several) chapters in that book?

Wait, can't forget a profound quote:

"Were I not so self-centered, I'd be intrigued."

- Tehol Beddict in Midnight Tides.


The Figs Protocol.

W makes a pretty weighty contribution, as does Bush sr and Dan Quayle.

But the Brits are well represented too:

John Prescott, stepping off a plane: 'Its good to be back on terra cotta.'

William Whitelaw: 'Labour is going round the country stirring up apathy'

Margaret Thatcher attempting to praise William Whitelaw: 'Every Prime Minister should have a Willie'
