Tuesday Short Cuts

Upright: “Is there anything more inimical to the spirit of science than the idea of squelching further inquiry, freezing our existing understanding in place and silencing opposition? Because this is precisely what such phrases as ‘settled science’ or ‘scientific consensus’ are designed to do.” —William McGurn

Speak of the devil: “So much of what’s going on now is something that we have to treat as if it’s a mental illness. I believe that climate change denial is a form of mental illness.” —Alec Baldwin

Braying Jackass: “[Angela Merkel] is giving voice to the kinds of principles that bring people together rather than divide them.” —Barack Obama on Merkel’s policy of allowing hundreds of thousands of Muslim “refugees” into the country

Clarification: “So for those of you who need translation into the latest newspeak: Letting your country be overrun by an uncontrolled migration of more than one million unvetted foreigners from a profoundly different culture, who profess a religion with large elements that are hostile to Western freedoms — and then forcing your citizens to pay for it. That is ‘uniting.’ Demanding that your country exercise its sovereignty, enforce its border regulations, and pursue the interests of its own citizens first — that’s ‘dividing.’” —Jeremy Carl

Art of the deal: “I’ve never told [Indiana voters] not to vote for me. They ought to vote for me.” —John Kasich, appearing to blow up the deal he had just made with Ted Cruz on ceding Indiana

The BIG lie: “We are still facing and struggling with systemic racism. … And as a white person, I have to talk about it more and say that we are not a post-racial society. We still struggle with racism and it is not only wrong, but it is holding us back.” —Hillary Clinton

And last… “Obama, who once admitted he couldn’t help his daughter with her 7th grade math, just gave the British prime minister economic advice.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
