Thursday Short Cuts

Insight: “I guess truth can hurt you worse in an election than about anything that can happen to you.” —Will Rogers (1879-1935)

Demo-gogues: “We have to remember that we’re actually all on one team. … We’re not Democrats first. We’re not Republicans first. We are Americans first. We’re patriots first. We all want what’s best for this country.” —Barack Obama, who is decidedly NOT a Patriot

Race bait: “This was a ‘white-lash’ against a changing country … against a black president in part. And that’s the part where the pain comes.” —Van Jones

Bewilderment: “There are a lot of people … who voted for Barack Obama in 2008, who voted for his re-election in 2012, and voted for Donald Trump in 2016. I don’t have an explanation for that, to put it bluntly.” —Josh Earnest

Bottom line: “Hillary’s problem is not that she is a woman; it’s that she is Hillary.” —Andrew McCarthy

Non Compos Mentis: “Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared to be wearing her infamous ‘dissent jabot’ on the bench Wednesday morning. The move is being widely interpreted as a repudiation of Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election a night earlier.” —The Hill (“So much for a Supreme Court that stands above politics.” —Keith Koffler)

Dezinformatsia: “Winner: Michelle Obama: The soon-to-be-former first lady may be the only Democrat who emerges from this dumpster fire of an election in good shape. She was the unquestioned star of the 2016 campaign, delivering the two best speeches … anyone gave in the race. And now Michelle Obama will be the first name on the lips of many Democrats already preparing for the 2020 presidential race against Trump.” —Washington Post

And last… “Pretty incredible to see one day after polls close and the progressive left still out in force campaigning for Trump.” —Stephen Miller
