Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.” —Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1726)

Upright: “What is the community of interest between, say, North Korea, Britain, Togo, and Argentina? There is none, but [Barack Obama] seems to believe that the arc of history is long but it bends towards justice. So one day, maybe in 100 years or 200 years when the Middle East is rubble, millions are dead and scattered around the world, justice will be served.” —Charles Krauthammer

For the record: “Iran’s judiciary on Monday announced that Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post’s Tehran correspondent, has been convicted. He was on trial for ‘espionage.’ … The timing of the conviction won’t escape students of history. Friday was the 444th day of his captivity. That was the number of days U.S. diplomats in Iran spent as hostages following the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Mr. Rezaian’s conviction three days later is the mullah equivalent of mailing a dead fish to an adversary.” —Wall Street Journal

The BIG lie: “[There’s] widespread support to ban semi-automatic assault weapons, guns which have no other purpose but to kill people.” —Bernie Sanders

Alpha Jackass: “[P]eople always, I think, were surprised about me connecting with folks in small-town Iowa. And the reason I did was, first of all, I had the benefit that at the time nobody expected me to win. And so I wasn’t viewed through this prism of Fox News and conservative media, and making me scary. At the time, I didn’t seem scary, other than just having a funny name.” —Barack Obama

Left-theology: “How do you reconcile the idea of faith being really important to you and you caring a lot about taking faith seriously with the fact that, at least in our democracy and our civic discourse, it seems as if folks who take religion the most seriously sometimes are also those who are suspicious of those not like them?” —Barack Obama with another shot at conservative Christians

Wait … she was joking? “I’m really not even a human being. I was constructed in a garage in Palo Alto a very long time ago.” —Hillary Clinton attempting to have fun in an interview with BuzzFeed

And last… “Ancient stone temples survive 2,500 years of ‘climate change.’ Wiped out instantly by ISIS. Guess which one admin calls bigger threat?” —Stephen Miller
