Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight from a tyrant: “The party … must not become a servant of the masses, but their master. … The unity of a nation’s spirit and will are worth far more than the freedom of the spirit and will of an individual; and that the higher interests involved in the life of the whole must here set the limits and lay down the duties of the interests of the individual.” —Adolf Hitler (1889-1945)

For the record: “The media is rigged, but it was rigged for Trump all damn year. He got more free media than the weather, dwarfing not just his primary foes but Hillary as well. If it wasn’t for the media who fell over Trump every time he sneezed we would have a different candidate. So, yeah, it was rigged and that rigging gave us Trump. He should be extremely grateful. Of course now he gets the same coverage but it’s soaked in opposition research. Was he set up? Could it be the media propelled him to the top of the heap knowing he would be easy to bring down later? Short answer, yes; long answer, hell, yes.” —Greg Gutfield

Belly laugh of the week: “Let me say for the billionth time: Reporters don’t root for a side. Period.” —The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza (“Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u. Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this.” —Politico’s Glenn Thrush obtaining approval from the Clinton campaign for a story)

Warnings: “For the ObamaCare of today to be transformed into the HillaryCare of 1993 and finally into a nationalized health-care system, a president is needed who has the willpower to impose the coercive details, nail down hard deadlines and unleash agencies to tighten controls and squeeze the life out of private insurers. In 1993 Hillary Clinton unapologetically proposed to do just that. If she is elected president she will have the unilateral power under ObamaCare to do it. The loss of what remains of Americans’ health-care freedom is an election away.” —former Sen. Phil Gramm

Late-night humor: “Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager said that based on early voting they expect this election to have the largest voter turnout in American history. That’s right, more people than ever will go to the polls for their chance to say, ‘Ugh, I guess…’” —Jimmy Fallon
