Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Newspaper editors separate the wheat from the chaff — and print the chaff.” —Adlai E. Stevenson (1900-1965)

Upright: “It is … reality, not an expression of misogyny, that men see the objects of their sexual desire as sexual objects. But this is too painful for feminists and other leftists. And it violates feminist theory, which says that men and women are essentially the same, and seeing a woman as a sexual object is misogyny. Therefore, this reality is rejected.” —Dennis Prager

For the record: “The White House’s outrage over alleged Russian influence in the election is ironic given all that the Obama administration did to interfere in Israel’s election and defeat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Political operatives connected to Obama’s campaign went to Israel to register Palestinian Muslim voters. And the State Department funded anti-Netanyahu campaign efforts because Bibi Netanyahu confronted Obama on a variety of issues, including the sellout to Iran.” —Gary Bauer

Non Compos Mentis: “We are no longer a sovereign nation, we are no longer a democracy, we are no longer a free people. We are the victims of a bloodless coup — so far — engineered by Russia with the traitorous indifference of the Republican Party.” —Keith Olbermann

Braying Jackass: “The Kennedy and King assassinations and the 9/11 attacks were crimes and tragedies. The wars in Vietnam and Iraq were disastrous mistakes. But the country recovered. For a democratic process to elevate a man expressing total disregard for democratic norms and institutions is worse.” —James Fallows, speechwriter for Jimmy Carter, on why electing Donald Trump is just the worst

Demo-gogues: “What is it about the state of our democracy where the leaks of what were frankly not very interesting emails [of Hillary Clinton’s], that didn’t have any explosive information in them, ended up being an obsession? And the fact that the Russians were doing this was not an obsession?” —Barack Obama

Braying Jenny: “Do we have to wait until the hammer and sickle is on the American flag before we stand up to this guy?” —The View’s Joy Behar, who also says Trump “has to step down before the inauguration”

And last… “Wisdom is knowing what you don’t know, which for all of us, especially the so-called experts, is a lot. This Christmas is a good time to remember that the only person who was ever flawless was hung from a cross.” —Stephen Moore
