Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.”

Upright: “Why do we state any red lines? We just had the secretary of defense on the other day, telling the world essentially which towns we were going to conduct an enveloping movement against Mosul. I mean it’s just insane. We keep telling people how many troops we’re going to send in, where they’re going to go. I mean we’re the best enemies in the world. Our enemies love when we telegraph what we’re doing.” —Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn

Just a little misunderstanding, that’s all: “I may have short-circuited, and for that I will try to clarify, because I think [Fox News’] Chris Wallace and I were probably talking past each other.” —Hillary Clinton when asked if she was “mischaracterizing Director Comey’s testimony”

Shameless: “100 out of 30,000 emails … contained classified information, but again, [Director Comey] acknowledged there were no markings on those 100 emails. And so, what we have here is pretty much what I have been saying throughout this whole year and that is that I never sent or received anything that was marked classified.” —Hillary Clinton, still lying, in the same speech

Belly Laugh of the Week: “I know that this is something that she’s learned from, and we’re going to be real transparent, absolutely.” —Tim Kaine on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal

And last… “Don’t worry, we can re-pay the tax payers the $400 million ransom payment we sent to Iran. We’ll have the Clintons do about three speeches.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
