Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “Recognize that government invasion of public power is eventually an assault upon your own business. If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government, recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he’ll eat you last.”

For the record: “Democrats continue to wage war against photo IDs being required at the polls, pretending its only purpose is to disenfranchise blacks. And yet blacks don’t seem to have a problem proving who they are when it comes to boarding planes, renting cars and apartments, buying beer and cigarettes or showing their photo ID to traffic cops. Only when it comes to voting do they suddenly become stateless, homeless and nameless, according to those promoting crooked elections.” —Burt Prelutsky

Bingo: “I think there’s an underlying question that is really in the back of people’s minds, and that is, you know, ‘Is she in it for us or is she in it for herself?’ I think that’s, you know, a question that people are trying to sort through.” —Hillary Clinton

The BIG lie: “Planned Parenthood does some very good work.” —Donald Trump

Alpha Jackass: “The reason that Ted Cruz lost the Evangelicals in S.C. is because he is a world class LIAR, and Evangelicals do not like liars!” —Donald Trump

Upright: “We are a nation of 300 million people. The two frontrunners are Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. It would be hard for me to think of two people less suited to the presidency in mind and character — especially character — than those two. But, in a democracy, the people get their way. And elections tell us a lot more about us than about the candidates.” —Jay Nordlinger

Late-night humor: “Over on the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders is getting the support of students at Hillary Clinton’s alma mater, Wellesley College. Now Hillary Clinton is trying to get the support of Bernie’s alma mater, Jurassic Park.” —Jimmy Fallon
