Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “I won a nickname, ‘The Great Communicator.’ But I never thought it was my style or the words I used that made a difference: it was the content. I wasn’t a great communicator, but I communicated great things, and they didn’t spring full bloom from my brow, they came from the heart of a great nation — from our experience, our wisdom, and our belief in the principles that have guided us for two centuries.”

Upright: “Clinton is a poor choice to be a path-breaker. The image that best fits her time in politics is not breaking the glass ceiling but engaging in crass dealing. From the emergence of the Clintons in Arkansas politics to now, everything has been about them in the worst way.” —Ken Blackwell

For the record: “The FDA has pretty strict rules when it comes to labeling products. It will stop you in your tracks if you try to pass off ground chuck as ground sirloin or try to peddle something doused in sodium as being salt-free. But, unfortunately, there is no federal agency or even a law that can prevent people from mislabeling themselves.” —Burt Prelutsky

Braying Jenny: “There’s this thought that women are just too scattered, we’re too impulsive, we are too hormonal, we can’t make good decisions for ourselves. Therefore we need the state to tell us, we need the state to give us medical information, even if it’s incorrect. We need the state to give us an ultrasound because we must not really realize that we’re pregnant; we have to go away for 24 hours and think it over.” —Cecile Richards, saying pro-lifers just think women are “hormonal”

Village Idiots: “We often criminalize behavior that is normal. And it’s — I don’t — I don’t see what the smoke is.” —provisional DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile defending Hillary Clinton

And last… “San Francisco 49ers QB refused to stand for National Anthem ‘Because the USA oppresses blacks.’ He could not be reached at his mansion for further comment.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
