Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “To tax the community for the advantage of a class is not protection, it is plunder.” —Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881)

For the record: “[I]f a majority of Republican primary voters don’t want Trump and would settle for any of the alternatives on offer, [a brokered convention] could just work. There’s nothing wrong with refusing to nominate a candidate opposed by a majority.” —Michael Barone

Non Compos Mentis: “I employ many people in Hawaii at my great hotel in Honolulu. I’ll be there very soon. Vote for me, Hawaii!” —Donald Trump (“There’s one problem here: Trump does not own the Trump International Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk. The Trump company is not involved in any way in selling or developing the property.” —CBS News)

Gun grabbers: “We have to try everything that works to … limit the numbers of people and the kinds of people who are given access to firearms.” —Hillary Clinton

A rare moment of truth: “Flint has voted for Dems for 84 straight yrs. What did it get us? For 18 months Dems remained silent & ignored pleas while Flint was poisoned. Dems in Flint today handing out bottles of water. Bottles? 100,000 people need 20 MILLION 16oz bottles of water EACH DAY! You’re not helping.” —tweets by Michael Moore

The BIG lie: “[W]hile the Constitution doesn’t mandate that [the Senate] give advice and consent — as they did not in the Bork and Ginsburg cases — it clearly gives the United States Senate the responsibility to ensure that the court is made whole and can act in a decisive manner so that the law can be settled.” —Rep. Steny Hoyer (“[The president] shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur…” —Article 2, Section 2)

And last… “There’s no problem Democrats can’t solve by throwing more money at it, including government over-spending.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
