Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “When you see all that rhetorical smoke billowing up from the Democrats, well ladies and gentleman, I’d follow the example of their nominee; don’t inhale.”

For once, she’s absolutely right! “I often feel like there’s the Hillary standard and then there’s the standard for everybody else.” —Hillary Clinton

For the record: “To be sure, the ‘Hillary standard’ isn’t entirely unique to Hillary. It’s more like the ‘Democratic standard,’ whereby Democrats generally are treated differently than Republicans. Democrats can lie, cheat, viciously attack opponents, be as corrupt as the day is long, and the press will play it down, ignore it, or make excuses, all while sending armies of angry reporters chasing after even the slightest perceived GOP wrongdoing. Clinton is like Nietzsche’s ‘Ubermensch,’ except in Nietzsche’s version, the Ubermensch didn’t whine about being above the law.” —Investor’s Business Daily

Belly laugh of the week: “I genuinely believe that there has never been a candidate better prepared for the presidency than Hillary Clinton. … I think that George H.W. Bush is one of the most underrated presidents we’ve had. I think he was and is, a really good man. The skill sets that Hillary has are similar to many of the skill sets that they had.” —Barack Obama

Well that’s embarrassing: “Hey @Reince — I’m in Cleveland if you need another chair to help keep your convention in order.” —Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a tweet to RNC chairman Reince Priebus last Monday

In Soviet Russia… “Well, what’s disturbing about this entire situation is that experts are telling us that Russian state actors broke into the DNC, took all these emails and now are leaking them out through these websites. … And … some experts are now telling us that this was done by … the Russians for the purpose of helping Donald Trump.” —Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook

And last… “Why would Russia try to stop Hillary? Did something go terribly wrong when they hit that reset button?” —Frank Fleming
