Thursday Short Cuts

Upright: “[I]f Republicans want to defund Planned Parenthood right now, the best way to do it is through the states. There are 31 states with Republican governors. Five of them have already defunded Planned Parenthood by prohibiting the use of Medicaid funds for abortion. Putting pressure on the states to remove taxpayer support of abortion mills can work and it can be done without sabotaging the Republicans’ presidential chances next year.” —Michael Reagan

Opposing the sun: “Think sunny days are good for plants? Not always. Sunlight causes #ozone to form, which harms foliage, weakens trees.” —EPA on Twitter (So are they admitting our solar energy endeavor’s a waste?)

Alpha Jackass: “Look, we had a president who came in and said the same kind of thing — new and improved, hope and change — and he didn’t have the leadership skills to fix things.” —Jeb Bush taking a shot at Marco Rubio

Non Compos Mentis: “Gun-rights advocates have waged a relentless battle to gut what remains of America’s lax and inadequate gun regulations. But what the advocates do not acknowledge — and some courts seem not to understand — is that their arguments are grounded in precedent unique to the violent world of the slaveholding South.” —Saul Cornell and Eric Ruben in The Atlantic (In truth, gun control was originally enacted by Democrats as a way to repress blacks’ rights.)

Late-night humor: “On Friday, despite our trade wars, tension in the South China Sea and Chinese hacking attacks, President Obama gave President Xi Jinping a full South Lawn welcome, where the Chinese president greeted every White House staffer by name and bank account.” —Stephen Colbert
