Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “There are only two means by which men can deal with one another: guns or logic. Force or persuasion. Those who know that they cannot win by means of logic, have always resorted to guns.” —Ayn Rand (1905-1982)

For the record: “[Obama] has … for eight years rubbed white peoples’ nose in the stain of slavery. He’s done it for eight years. He’s about 150 years removed from slavery. Nobody said forget about it, but you have to be able to move on at some point. And he will not allow America to do that. And until he leaves the White House, we are going to continue to have to put up with his nonsense.” —Sheriff David Clarke

Re: The Left: “Obama … revealed himself in his final month as the Jew hating, Israel hating bastard we have always known him to be.” —Caroline Glick

Upright: “The fact that neither Al Gore nor Hillary Clinton was allowed to ascend to the highest office in the land is the very reason that the Electoral College will retain its place in the Constitution long after Gore and Clinton take their rightful place as the final question on Jeopardy: Name two people who lost presidential elections in spite of garnering the most popular votes. And don’t be too surprised if, say, ten years from now, the three finalists are stumped.” —Burt Prelutsky

Delusions of grandeur: “Since 2009, we’ve faced our fair share of challenges, and come through them stronger. That’s because we have never let go of a belief that has guided us ever since our founding  —  our conviction that, together, we can change this country for the better. So I hope you’ll join me one last time [for my farewell address in Chicago on Jan. 10]. Because, for me, it’s always been about you.” —Barack Obama

Non Compos Mentis: “The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and that he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself.” —Valerie Jarrett

And last… “Putin wanted Hillary to lose the election because he was sick and tired of the Democrats letting him do whatever he wanted.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
