Fellow Patriots:

I asked our team to pause for family time this week before kids return to school. The homepage is updated daily. The Digest returns on Monday, August 2. —Mark Alexander

Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “Although the political landscape has changed, the bold ideas of the 1980s are alive and well. Republican candidates swept every major election across the country … and, as a result, it seems that our opponents have finally realized how unpopular liberalism really is. So now they’re trying to dress their liberal agenda in a conservative overcoat.”

Belly laugh of the week: “[W]e aim to rededicate ourselves to the fundamental mission of Times journalism. That is to report America and the world honestly, without fear or favor, striving always to understand and reflect all political perspectives and life experiences in the stories that we bring to you.” —New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. and executive editor Dean Baquet

Alpha Jackass: “Watching white nationalists celebrate while innocent Americans cry tears of fear does not feel like America.” —Harry Reid (Don’t miss the rest of his vile statement.)

Non Compos Mentis: “Republicans are planning to repeal Obamacare just when half the country desperately needs insurance that covers trauma counseling.” —CNN’s Sally Kohn

Bad idea: “We have to just abolish the electoral college.” —former Attorney General Eric Holder

But we repeat ourselves: “Hillary won this election … by what will likely be more than a million votes. So how come she isn’t going to the White House in January? Because of an anachronistic Electoral College system which should have been abolished 150 years ago.” —Michael Dukakis

And last… “You hear suicidal talking heads in the liberal media saying that Trump tapped into something they didn’t see. Of course they didn’t see it. They’re liberals.” —Michael Reagan
