Friday Short Cuts

For the record: “In endorsing Mrs. Clinton this past week, President Obama declared her the most qualified person to ever seek the office. … Mrs. Clinton got to where she is in life by marrying a man who would become president. She then used his fame to build her own. This and a female reproductive system are apparently greater qualifications for office than leading a revolutionary war against Great Britain (Washington), serving as Governor of Virginia and writing the Declaration of Independence (Jefferson), or writing the American constitution and most of the Federalist Papers (Madison).” —Erick Erickson

Good question: “[S]eeing as liberals now maintain that gender and race are matters of individual choice and personal identification instead of biology, isn’t it hypocritical of them to make such a fuss over the possible election of a person to the presidency just because she was born a female?” —David Limbaugh

Braying Jenny: “We had absolutely overwhelming disclosure. Were there one or two instances that slipped through the cracks? Yes. But was the overwhelming amount of anything that anybody gave the [Clinton] Foundation disclosed? Absolutely. And I’m proud of the Foundation.” —Hillary Clinton with an absolutely overwhelming lie

Non Compos Mentis: “I am thankful that — as a nation — we have put [‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’] behind us… [H]ere in the IC [Intelligence Community], we have the chance to lead by example… [I]n IC facilities … you can use whatever restroom you feel comfortable and safe in.” —Director of National Intelligence James Clapper

You didn’t build that! “Anybody here have a smartphone? In this smartphone, almost everything came from federal investments in research. … They say Steve Jobs did a good idea designing it and putting it together. Federal research invented it.” —Nancy Pelosi

Late-night humor: “Despite Hillary Clinton clinching the Democratic nomination, Bernie Sanders vowed to stay in the race and told supporters in Los Angeles that the struggle continues. The struggle to understand math?” —Seth Meyers (Well, math IS every Socialist’s biggest struggle.)
