Ronald Reagan was always prepared with a quick one-liner, and CBS last week compiled some of the notecards he used. 

The one liners aren't just funny, they are mini-stories that illustrate an issue from Reagan's point of view better than any statistic could. Take a look at the note cards and think about how you could put together a few short, pithy statements that summarize complicated issues for your campaign. 

For a little more on Reagan's speechwriting, The American Spectator wrote a short article about Reagan's use of these cards a few years back.
