Friday Short Cuts

Insight: “He who sees the truth, let him proclaim it, without asking who is for it or who is against it.” —Henry George (1839-1897)

Alpha Jackass: “[L]ook, if I watched Fox News, I wouldn’t vote for me. I understand. And if I was listening to Rush Limbaugh, I’d say, man, that’s terrible. Fortunately there are more diverse sources of information.” —Barack Obama

Nailed it: “The most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons is the corporate media, the press. Let’s be clear on one thing: The corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism. They are a political special interest no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity with a total political agenda. And the agenda is not for you, it’s for themselves. Their agenda is to elect Crooked Hillary Clinton at any cost, at any price, no matter how many lives they destroy. For them, it’s a war, and for them, nothing at all is out of bounds.” —Donald Trump

Braying Jenny: “I could just feel his presence behind me [on the debate stage]. I thought, whoa, this is really weird. I was just trying to stay focused, trying to keep my composure.” —Hillary Clinton playing the scared woman card after her second debate with Trump

Hyper hypocrisy: “I can’t stop thinking about this [Trump video]. It has shaken me to my core in a way I could not have predicted. I know this is a campaign but this isn’t about politics. It’s about basic human decency.” —Michelle Obama campaigning for the Clintons

And last… “Referring to Trump, Michelle said she hasn’t heard such words demeaning women since, well, since Wednesday night’s White House hip-hop party.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
