Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “None can love freedom heartily, but good men; the rest love not freedom, but license.” —Poet John Milton (1608-1674)

Upright: “There are actions that can be taken immediately to reclaim the decency we are all worthy of, and that includes … cutting off the $500 million dollar a year taxpayer subsidy of Planned Parenthood. They report a $1 billion profit every year. Let them suffer with a paltry $500M profit by making them pay for the non-abortion services they contend they provide. The left is always complaining about massive corporate profits, and ending ‘corporate welfare.’ Let’s start with Planned Parenthood.” —columnist Tammy Bruce

Belly laugh of the week: “[W]e’re creating a culture that is not conducive to good policy or good politics. The American people deserve better. Certainly, presidential debates deserve better. In 18 months, I’m turning over the keys — I want to make sure I’m turning over the keys to somebody who is serious about the serious problems the country faces and the world faces.” —Barack Obama

Alpha Jackass: “I actually think I’m a pretty good president. I think if I ran [for a third term], I could win. But I can’t. So there’s a lot that I’d like to do to keep America moving, but the law is the law.” —Barack Obama

Cognitive dissonance: “There’s a lot of merit to the [Iranian nuclear] deal, but there’s also a legitimate cause for concern and I think this is a decision that no member of Congress should make lightly.” —Debbie Wasserman Schultz

And last… “Do you know that in the restaurants of New York, they have an inspection system? You can surprise any restaurant without notice — you can walk in and inspect them. … We’re not protected from [an Iranian] bomb, but we’re protected from a bad quality tuna fish.” —comedian Jackie Mason
