Thursday Short Cuts

Insight: “If children were forced to learn about the Constitution, about how government works, about how this nation came into being, about taxes and about how government forever threatens the cause of liberty perhaps we wouldn’t see so many foolish ideas coming out of the mouths of silly old men.” —Lyn Nofziger (1924-2006)

Fact: “Some of the most racist things that I’ve ever heard come out of people that are on the air at ESPN. There are some of the biggest racists in sports commentating, and you take it for what it is. You know who they are, you know what they are.” —Curt Schilling

It really is that simple: “I think men’s bathrooms are for men and women’s bathrooms are for women. I don’t know what the problem we’re trying to solve here is. I mean, we’ve been doing it this way forever.” —Marco Rubio

Braying Jenny: “Ted Cruz talks tough on Iran, but his ‘running mate’ was soft on Iran when she skirted the law to sell them computer parts. Slogan idea for the Cruz/Fiorina ‘ticket’: ‘Mean & Meaner.’ Cruz/Fiorina = a perfect match. He wants to ship immigrants out and she’s a champion at shipping jobs out.” —Barbara Boxer

Braying Jackass: “Sen. [Tom] Cotton is certainly no expert when it comes to heavy water. I’m confident that he couldn’t differentiate heavy water from sparkling water. His focus is on undermining the effective implementation of this [nuclear] agreement that prevents Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.” —Josh Earnest on Cotton’s effort to block the government from buying heavy water from Iran (“This guy at the White House may think it’s a laughing matter to subsidize Iran’s nuclear program, but I don’t. I think it’s a very serious matter.” —Tom Cotton)

Late-night humor: “Hillary Clinton has been attacking Donald Trump over his ‘country club’ lifestyle. Hillary made the remarks during a speech none of us could afford to attend.” —Conan O'Brien
