Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “This is the issue of this election: whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.”

Upright: “I did not vote for Obama either time, and in fact I cried both times he was elected. I had no ‘safe space’ on my college campus, nor did I seek out Obama voters to yell at them or bash their cars. Sometimes your team doesn’t make it to the Super Bowl. But you accept it and you move on. … Unity will not happen until we clearly see truth and falsehood for what they are. Unity will continue to elude us until we realize that there is no ‘right’ to be evil or to do evil things. Unity will never be our reality until we recognize the leftist façade of lies that purposefully pit brother against brother.” —Caroline Camden Lewis

Legacy: “Barack Obama was the first president of the United States to spend more on ‘means-tested entitlements’ — AKA welfare — than on national defense, according to data published by his own Office of Management and Budget.” —Terence Jeffrey

Braying Jenny: “Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” —Madonna

Braying Jackass: “This election really showed that we’ve ignored the misogyny and the sexism that is still so prevalent and ingrained. And ingrained in many of the victims, the 46% of women that [sic] voted for Trump, and the 53% of white women that voted for Trump. … That just says that we’ve got more work to do and we’ll keep doing it.” —Michael Moore

And last… “This is not hard. When Trump does good things, praise him. When Trump does bad things, condemn him. Basic decency is not tough.” —Ben Shapiro
