Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “The Democrats may remember their lines, but how quickly they forget the lessons of the past. I have witnessed five major wars in my lifetime, and I know how swiftly storm clouds can gather on a peaceful horizon. The next time a Saddam Hussein takes over Kuwait, or North Korea brandishes a nuclear weapon, will we be ready to respond? In the end, it all comes down to leadership, and that is what this country is looking for now.”

“I hope she gets well soon. I don’t know what’s going on. Like you, I see what I see. … Something’s going on but I just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail and we’ll be seeing her at the debate.” —Donald Trump on Hillary Clinton’s collapse Sunday

Upright: “The irony is that the reporters who chased Sen. McCain are now dismissing any questions of candidate health as a conspiracy against Mrs. Clinton, as if her campaign has never fibbed about private email, the Clinton Foundation or sundry other topics. This pattern of dishonesty is one reason health rumors persist. By the way, Mrs. Clinton told the FBI recently that she didn’t remember certain briefings because she was recovering from her 2012 concussion. So add that to the list of reasons her neurological records are relevant.” —The Wall Street Journal

D'oh! “Can we just stop talking about Hillary Clinton’s health now?” —The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza last Tuesday. “Hillary Clinton’s health just became a real issue in the presidential campaign.” —The Post’s Cillizza yesterday.

Braying Jackass: “We all know how [Hillary’s] opponent has done well down in West Virginia and eastern Kentucky, because the coal people don’t like any of us [Democrats] anymore. They all voted for me. I won twice, and they did well. And they blame the president when the sun doesn’t come up in the morning now.” —Bill Clinton

Non Compos Mentis: “We’ll let history be the judge, how consequential [Colin] Kaepernick’s action is.” —NAACP president Cornell William Brooks, who suggests “it’s not a stretch” to equate the NFL quarterback and Rosa Parks

And last… “Not to cry racism, but how come no one had a problem with the national anthem before we had a black president?” —Frank Fleming
