Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “They say the world has become too complex for simple answers. They are wrong. There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right. Winston Churchill said that ‘the destiny of man is not measured by material computation. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we are spirits — not animals.’”

Upright: “Trump is not the problem. He is also not the cure. He’s the symptom. The Republican Party is sick, and has been for a long time. For a generation Republican voters have consistently pulled the lever for whatever Republican has been trotted out; they are only now realizing they don’t have a lot to show for it. Voters are angry. … And at least some of this anger is justified. … Unfortunately for Republican voters, in their anger at their party leaders, they’ve missed the fact that they have even more reason to be distrustful of Trump. And they are running out of time to recognize their mistake.” —Caleb Verbois

Jack of clubs: “I would like to see a little more violence from the innocent Trump supporters set upon by violent leftist hoodlums.” —Ann Coulter

Candid admission: “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” —Hillary Clinton

Demo-gogues: “We’re the only advanced democracy in the world that makes it harder for people to vote. … [I]t is much easier to order pizza or a trip than it is for you to exercise the single most important task in a democracy, and that is for you to select who’s going to represent you in government."—Barack Obama

Missing the point: "You cannot take an absolutist view on this. If your argument is strong encryption no matter what, and we can and should create black boxes, that I think does not strike the kind of balance we have lived with for 200, 300 years, and it’s fetishizing our phones above every other value.” —Barack Obama

Late-night humor: “A reporter claims she was pushed down by one of Donald Trump’s campaign advisers. Isn’t that crazy? Donald Trump has a campaign adviser.” —Conan O'Brien
