Tuesday Short Cuts

Upright: “Obama [is] tougher on Republicans than he ever is on ISIS. … When talking about ISIS, it was — what’s the word for it? It was impersonal. It was detached. It was as though he was talking theory and philosophy in the faculty lounge. … The president wants to provide all kinds of leadership in terms of our welfare state, but he does not want to provide leadership in vanquishing our enemies, or so it seems to me. If you want to come here and become a freeloader for the Democrat Party, the doors are open.” —Rush Limbaugh

Observations: “We have become experts at treacly online mourning. We take grotesque atrocities and launder them into trite symbols and slogans that are usually self-congratulatory and, of course, wholly ineffectual. … Nothing positive comes from innocents getting shot down in cold blood for the offense of going to a concert on a Friday night. It there aren’t going to be more — and worse — attacks in our cities, the path ahead won’t be one of unity and peace. It will be the hard, thankless work of protecting civilization from its enemies.” —Rich Lowry

For the record: “This was not an ‘attack on all humanity.’ It was an attack on Western liberal values. And it wasn’t an attack on ‘the universal values we share,’ since there are in fact few universal values that humanity shares. If humanity shared universal values, there wouldn’t be wars, or hundreds of millions of subjugated women, or theocratic and secular tyrannies.” —Dennis Prager

That’ll scare ‘em: “The need to destroy Islamic State is an issue that faces the whole of the international community. I have therefore asked the [UN] Security Council to hold a meeting, as quickly as possible, to adopt a resolution to mark this goal shared by all to fight against terrorism.” —French President Francois Hollande

The BIG Lie: “Since we last debated in Las Vegas, nearly 3,000 people have been killed by guns. Two hundred children have been killed. This is an emergency.” —Hillary Clinton at Friday’s Democrat debate (Even the AP didn’t bite: “The Gun Violence Archive has recorded 11,485 gun deaths in the U.S. so far this year, an average of just under 1,000 per month, making Clinton’s figure appear to be highly exaggerated.”)

And last… “Obama asks Americans to reach out to distressed Syrian Muslims. He’ll get around to distressed Syrian Christians very, very soon.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
