Friday Short Cuts

Insight: “A socialist is somebody who doesn’t have anything, and is ready to divide it up equally among everybody.” —George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

Upright: “How about the Republican Party signing a loyalty oath to the voters? If there needs to be a loyalty oath here, it seems to me that the Republican Party elected officials would finally get around to signing one that they are going to be loyal to their cause and loyal to their voters.” —Rush Limbaugh

Village Idiots: “[I]f we walk away from this agreement, given the suspicions that [Iran’s] Supreme Leader had about even entering into negotiations us, we will have proven their worst fears — that you can’t deal with the West. You can’t trust the West.” —John Kerry (Last we checked, the West isn’t the one threatening to radioactively annihilate its enemies.)

Obfuscation: “I don’t know what ‘wiped’ means.” —Hillary campaign spokesman Brian Fallon feigning ignorance on her server and deleted emails

Hypocrite: “Marriage equality is the law of the land. Officials should be held to their duty to uphold the law — end of story. ” —Hillary Clinton (Yep. You should try it sometime.)

Double standards: “Lois Lerner goes on paid administrative leave from the IRS, but Kentucky clerk Kim Davis goes to jail?” —Carly Fiorina

And last… “At a campaign stop in Iowa, Hillary Clinton said her decision to use a private email server was ‘not the best choice.’ Finally! The perfect Hillary 2016 slogan.” —Fred Thompson
