For the Record

“I don’t think it’s much better than 50/50 that [Joe Biden] shows up on June the 27th. … Why risk it?” —Democrat strategist James Carville regarding debating Donald Trump

Circling the Wagons

“It didn’t really sound like stealing $30,000. It sounded a lot like Michael Cohen doing the little that he could … to rebalance the bonus he thought he deserved, and it still came out as less than the bonus he thought he deserved and the bonus he’d gotten the year before.” —MSNBC’s Lawrence O'Donnell

Dumb & Dumber

Inquiring Minds Want to Know

What is the ICC doing about that? There is a brutal civil war going on in Sudan. What is the ICC doing about that? Christians are being slaughtered in Nigeria. What is the ICC doing about that? I don’t recall the ICC bringing Osama bin Laden to justice.” —Gary Bauer

The Village Academies

“Parents take serious risks when they send their child to college. … How many young people return home after four years at college (let alone additional years in graduate school) a finer, kinder, more moral or intellectually more developed person? Let’s just say it’s rare.” —Dennis Prager


“How cool is it as a woman to hear your spouse praise you and have such gratitude towards you? … That’s a beautiful thing. Isn’t that pro-woman? … Harrison Butker, thank you for your courage. Don’t change. We need you.” —former ESPN anchor Sage Steele
