Friday Short Cuts

Insight: “How many crimes are permitted simply because their authors could not endure being wrong.” —Albert Camus (1913-1960)

For the record: “We have been asking ourselves … for a year almost, ‘What exactly didn’t [Hillary Clinton] want people to see?’ Well now we know. As we speculated, the most plausible explanation was the rank corruption of the Clinton Foundation and its corrupt — I don’t know if it’s illegal — but corrupt relationship with the State Department.” —Charles Krauthammer

Friendly fire: “Do we actually know who told Hillary she could use a private email? And has that person been drawn and quartered? Like [this] whole thing is f— insane.” —July 2015 email from Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden

Good question: “It’s one thing for conservatives to drone on about liberal media bias, which we’ve done for decades, but have we reached the point that it is becoming a threat to the republic as we have known it?” —David Limbaugh

The BIG lie: “[T]here is a faction of people who are continually trying to root for failure, despite the fact that we keep on insuring people and folks continue to get help. So the bottom line is that most people are going to be pleasantly surprised at just how affordable their options are if we can just get them to see for themselves. … [W]e’re going to have to kind of clear the bugs off the windshield so people can see the road ahead.” —Barack Obama

Non Compos Mentis: “People have to start living a life that’s commensurate with reductions in greenhouse gases to the extent they can.” —Gina McCarthy (Yes, let’s reduce a gas that’s necessary for life’s very survival.)

And last… “After this election, both parties owe their voters an explanation as to how they produced the worst of their party for the top office in the land — and their voters should reflect for a long time on the choices made.” —Ed Morrissey
