Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from London Breed, Gavin Newsom, Jamie Raskin, and more.

The BIG Lie

“[Filthiness] is not a issue that we’ve been sitting around waiting to solve.” —San Francisco Mayor London Breed

Straight From the Horse’s Mouth

“I know folks say, ‘Oh, they’re just cleaning up this place [San Francisco] 'cause all those fancy leaders are coming into town.’ That’s true because it’s true.” —California Governor Gavin Newsom


“We need another four years to continue to finish the job. … We have to be honest about the brick wall of MAGA extremism that we continue to run into when we’re trying to get things done for the American people.” —Biden Campaign Communications Director Michael Tyler

“This conservative, MAGA-leaning Supreme Court has desecrated the Voting Rights Act, and we have not been able to get the Republicans in the Congress to renew it. And so a lot of black people are disappointed.” —Congressman Jim Clyburn (D-SC) regarding black constituent polling

“There is a full-on intent by some very powerful people to attack so many of our hard-fought, hard-won fundamental freedoms and rights. And it is time that we then show them that we understand that the American people do believe in the foundational ideals of our country, which include the freedom of a woman to make decisions about her own body and not have our government tell her what to do; the freedom of our young people in particular to be free from the fear of gun violence and the need for reasonable gun safety laws; the freedom of people to be able to love who they love proudly and without judgment; the freedom of people to be able to have access to opportunity where we are not afraid to discuss diversity and equity and inclusion, understanding that that is part of how we will create a stronger economy and a stronger nation.” —Vice President Kamala Harris

Leftmedia Hacks Shill for Biden

“Biden needs expert political guidance. … Trump could win despite his flagrant criminality and deranged mental state. [J]ournalists need to better convey 2 realities: the US economy is doing well, not poorly. Biden at 80 is handling the job effectively right now.” —journalist John Harwood

“Joe Biden’s economy is, honestly, pretty amazing: How come he doesn’t get credit?” —Salon’s Kirk Swearingen

Non Compos Mentis

“What would a second [Trump] term look like? It would look a lot like Vladimir Putin.” —Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD)

“President Harris is here to make sure we do this the right way.” —Joe Biden

Belly Laugh of the Day

“I feel so grateful that [Biden is] the man in charge of our country right now. He has the right temperament and experience.” —Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo

Village Academies

“The problem with our college students isn’t a lack of education. It’s what they’re learning. That they’re being indoctrinated with neo-Marxist, anti-Western ideology. … There is a disturbing link between higher education and higher levels of anti-Semitism. Our colleges and universities are breeding grounds for Jew-hatred.” —Gary Bauer

For the Record

“When the intellectually indolent cannot defend the indefensible, they pull the race card.” —cartoonist Michael Ramirez after his work was censored by The Washington Post
