AUTHOR:James Hilary Mulligan (1844–1916)
QUOTATION:The song birds are the sweetest
            In Kentucky;
The thoroughbreds are fleetest
            In Kentucky;
Mountains tower proudest,
Thunder peals the loudest,
The landscape is the grandest—
And politics—the damnedest
            In Kentucky.
