Thursday Short Cuts

Insight: “To make your children capable of honesty is the beginning of education.” —John Ruskin (1819-1900)

Upright: “Weapons like the AR-15 have been demystified. Americans have bought them by the millions, and millions more have either fired an AR-15 or know a friend or neighbor who owns one. … [W]ith every AR sold, more Americans enjoy the benefit of greater liberty and security. In other words, the AR-15 is its own best argument.” —David French

Now she says so: “I think one of the worst things that happened on the Affordable Care Act is that it was all Democrats. Republicans and Democrats have got to start working together.” —Rep. Debbie Dingell

The BIG lie, part I: “There’s no sense in which [ObamaCare] has to be fixed. The law is working as designed. However, it could work better and I think probably the most important thing experts would agree on is that we need a larger mandate penalty.” —Jonathan Gruber

The BIG lie, part II: “You never heard me criticize the Tea Party. The reason I didn’t is because a lot of people are scared, beat up, and they lost a lot.” —Joe Biden (Oh really?.)

Non Compos Mentis: “The idea of being a Christian is to just behave that way, and [Hillary Clinton] behaves that way. That’s what’s great about it. She doesn’t talk about it, she lives it. She acts it.” —Michael Moore

And last… “What are the American people supposed to do when the only way they can learn the actual agenda and priorities of their aspiring president is through the leaks from a foreign intelligence service?” —Jim Geraghty
