Friday Short Cuts

Insight: “Once we start to worry too often and too deeply about what certain individuals and what certain groups think about us, then we might start selling our souls for the sake of expediency.” —Otis Chandler (1927-2006)

Memo to the Clintons: “Chelsea, you said you don’t remember a time in your life that your parents weren’t being attacked. There’s a very good reason for this — your parents are not good people. Your father was, and probably still is, a sexual predator. Your mother has always lied and covered up for him. I say again, ‘I was 35 when Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73. It never goes away.’ The truth is what has brought the attacks on your family and you are smart enough to know that by now.” —Juanita Broaddrick

Redistribution: “In today’s world, when we talk about public education, it is no longer good enough to talk about the first grade through high school. That was wonderful 30 or 40 years ago — it is not enough today.” —Bernie Sanders

Dezinformatsia: “Stay true to your convictions. That might mean a vote for Clinton, the most plausible alternative to keep Trump out of the White House. Or it might mean a third-party candidate. Or a write-in. Or a focus on down-ballot candidates who will serve the nation honestly, try to heal its divisions, and work to solve its problems. Whatever you do, however, resist the siren song of a dangerous demagogue. By all means vote, just not for Donald Trump.” —USA Today editorial board

Belly laugh of the day: “[Donald Trump] puts his personal and business interests ahead of the laws and the values and the polices of the United States of America.” —Hillary Clinton, who does nothing but put her personal interests ahead of America’s

Demo-gogues: “[W]e found out some of the people who voted for [the 9/11 bill override] said, frankly, we didn’t know what was in it. And there was no debate of it. And it was, you know, basically a political vote.” —Barack Obama (“It’s more than a little rich for the man who gave us ObamaCare to be complaining now about lawmakers’ failure to read legislation without knowing what was in it.” —James Taranto)

And last… “Rather than striking immunity deals with virtually every person who had intimate knowledge of Hillary Clinton’s illegal private server and emails, the Justice Department would have saved everyone some time by offering Clinton protection instead.” —David Harsanyi
