Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “Government is like a baby. It is an alimentary canal with an appetite at one end and a no sense of responsibility at the other.”

Upright: “It’s a little mystifying to me that President Obama … can reach out to a murdering dictator … in Cuba in the last year and be hailed as a hero for doing it and President-elect Donald Trump takes a courtesy call from a democratically elected leader in Taiwan and … it’s become something of a controversy.” —Mike Pence

Magnanimity: “Don’t forget — I hit Mitt [Romney] pretty hard also, I mean, before the fact. And so I understand how it all works.” —Donald Trump on why he’s considering Romney for secretary of state

Demo-gogues: “I don’t think that people want a new direction. Our values unify us. And our values are about supporting America’s working families.” —Nancy Pelosi on winning the Democrat leadership post again (Boy did she miss the point of the 2016 election.)

Color us skeptical: “I don’t think Hillary has any interest in running again.” —Gov. Terry McAuliffe (The Clintons are incapable of avoiding the spotlight.)

Journalism: “Some Americans have found a new folk hero in a familiar face: Hillary Clinton, comfortably dressed suburban retiree.” —New York Times

And last… “To my knowledge, no one has ever burned a flag at a trade school. I wonder why that is?” —Mike Rowe
