Friday Short Cuts

For the record: “Clinton, last night, defending her judgment: ‘President Obama trusted my judgment enough to ask me to be secretary of State for the United States.’ Yeah, that line may work really well in a Democratic primary, but you can apply the same ‘hey, if Obama picked me, I must know what I’m doing’ argument to former HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius, VA secretary Eric Shinseki, short-lived Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, all of those wealthy donor ambassadors who knew nothing about the countries where they would represent the U.S.” —Jim Geraghty

Helping Hillary: “Please comment on whether the CONFIDENTIAL classification level can be eliminated from your agencies’ guides and the negative impacts this might have on mission success. This action could promote transparency.” —James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, in a just-released memo from March

Non Compos Mentis: “[T]he AR-15 … is advertised to young people as being a combat weapon.” —Hillary Clinton

Advice from the devil: “If [Republicans] reject the public will, they will really hand us a bigger victory than I’m even anticipating now, because that will be an implosion of the Republican Party.” —Nancy Pelosi on nominating anyone but Donald Trump

Hot air: “As a taxpayer and voter, the introduction of this extreme doubt about climate change is affecting my quality of life as a public citizen. … So I can see where people are very concerned about this, and they’re pursuing criminal investigations as well as engaging in discussions like this. … That there is a chilling effect on scientists who are in extreme doubt about climate change, I think that is good.” —Bill Nye

Alpha Jackass: “I have asked my distributor NOT to book my film in any theater in North Carolina due 2 their bigoted law against LGBTQ ppl. They have agreed.” —tweet by filmmaker Michael Moore

Late-night humor: “The big New York primary, which happens next Tuesday, is looking pretty good for Hillary Clinton. In fact, website FiveThirtyEight says Hillary has a 99 percent chance of winning the primary for New York. When he heard, Bernie Sanders said, ‘My God, I’ve become part of the 1 percent!’” —Jimmy Fallon
