Friday Short Cuts

For the record: “This is why you have security protocols — to protect classified information. [Hillary Clinton] exposed it to our enemies, and now … our adversaries have this very sensitive information that not only jeopardizes her and national security at home, but the men and women serving overseas. In my opinion, quite frankly, it’s treason.” —Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee

Upright: “In all, an estimated 40 percent of voters will cast ballots before Election Day. And that’s nuts. … Comey’s bombshell is a perfect illustration of how new facts can make a hash of things. … Of course we shouldn’t put up any insurmountable obstacles to voting. But if we want citizens to value their vote, why are we constantly lowering the price?” —Jonah Goldberg

Braying Jackass: “Hillary Clinton, having been in the arena for 30 years, oftentimes gets knocked around and people say crazy stuff about her and when she makes a mistake, an honest mistake, it ends up being blown up as if it’s just some crazy thing.” —Barack Obama

Fairly unbalanced: “I would rather see Donald Trump’s life end.” —Los Angeles Times reporter Steven Borowiec

The BIG Lie: “It is true premiums are going up for a handful of people who don’t get tax credits. That’s important. We’re going to work as hard as we can to do something about it. We would have already done it if the Republicans had helped, but keep in mind their alternative would have been no health insurance. … They want to repeal [ObamaCare] because ideologically they’re opposed to the idea of helping these 20 million people get health insurance.” —Barack Obama
