Wednesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Whatever America hopes to bring to pass in the world must first come to pass in the heart of America.” —Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969)

Observations: “I agree it’s good for [Bernie] Sanders to go out and to address racial issues since he’s never been identified with it and because his audiences are lily white. But you don’t cure that by going to Liberty University. You want to reach out to African-Americans, you go to black churches, you go to a lot of other places. [Liberty] isn’t exactly the right place to go.” —Charles Krauthammer

Upright: “The sorry and tragic state of black education and its attendant problems will not be turned around until there’s a change in what’s acceptable behavior and what’s unacceptable behavior. That change must come from within the black community.” —Walter Williams

The BIG Lie: “No question [in] my mind that moving toward a Medicare-for-all, single-payer program is the most cost-effective way to provide health care to all of our people.” —Bernie Sanders

Stopped clock, twice a day: “Sometimes there are folks on college campuses who are liberal and maybe even agree with me on a bunch of issues who sometimes aren’t listening to the other side. And that’s a problem, too. … I’ve heard of some college campuses where they don’t want to have a guest speaker who is too conservative. Or they don’t want to read a book if it has language that is offensive to African-Americans, or somehow sends a demeaning signal towards women. And I’ve got to tell you, I don’t agree with that either. I don’t agree that you, when you become students at colleges, have to be coddled and protected from different points of views.” —Barack Obama

Non Compos Mentis: “I don’t think Planned Parenthood funding should be cut off. The $500 million that gets given to Planned Parenthood every single year goes to female care. It goes for scanning for cancer, it goes for mammograms.” —Miss Tennessee, Hannah Robison (For the umpteenth time, Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms.)

Late-night humor: “The remaining candidates are gearing up for the second Republican debate, which will take place [tonight] on CNN. It starts at 8 p.m. and ends when Donald Trump runs out of air.” —Jimmy Fallon
