Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.” —Edmund Burke (1729-1797)

Alpha Jackass: “We should not fail to see the context in which this vile assault [at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic] took place. Last summer, a right-wing group began releasing videos with unsubstantiated allegations. Since that time the Republican Congress have made it their mission to push these unsubstantiated allegations. Republicans shouldn’t waste their time. I would hope that they would give up before they match the millions of dollars, last count more than $ 5 million, they’ve wasted on the so-called Benghazi ‘Let’s Get Secretary Clinton’ Committee.” —Harry Reid

Braying Jenny: “It’s America. You are free to have your speech. The language you choose matters. You are not free from the judgment of the consequences of your hate-filled rhetoric.” —NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue, blaming abortion critics for last week’s attack on a Planned Parenthood facility (Memo to Hogue: None of us are “free from the judgment of consequences.” That includes abortionists.)

Belly laugh of the week: “I’ve worked for Mr. Trump now for a long time, and I can tell you that Mr. Trump’s memory is fantastic, and I’ve never come across a situation where Mr. Trump has said something that’s not accurate.” —Trump adviser Michael Cohen

Demo-gogues: “We salute the people of Paris for insisting this crucial conference go on. An act of defiance that proves nothing will deter us from building the future we want for our children. What greater rejection of those who would tear down our world than marshaling our best efforts to save it.” —Barack Obama

Upright: “No matter how you feel about the issue about the environment, the climate, there’s no way any reasonable person could conclude that the most immediate threat we face to our security is what the climate’s going to look like in 25 or 30 years.” —Marco Rubio

And last… “[I]f so many on the left really believe rhetoric is the motivating factor behind [tragic] incidents, then what is their solution to stopping it? All roads lead to only one frightening answer, which is why, in the face of the Left’s response to horrific incidents they find politically advantageous, we must continue to speak up and speak out.” —Stephen Miller
