Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “The people are watching and waiting. They don’t demand miracles. They do expect us to act. Let us act together.”

Upright: “American education is at a crossroads. If the teachers’ unions and their allies can defeat the nomination of [Betsy] DeVos, and the Republicans substitute someone else more acceptable to the education establishment, a historic opportunity will be lost, and may never come again in this generation.” —Thomas Sowell

For the record: “If Trump wanted to ban Muslim immigration, there are an additional 46 Muslim-majority countries in the world that his order should apply to.” —Caleb Verbois

Can’t let it go: “I want to know what the Russians have on Donald Trump. I think we have to have an investigation by the FBI into his financials, personal and political connections to Russia and we want to see his tax returns so we can have truth in the relationship between [Vladimir] Putin, whom he admires, and Donald Trump.” —Nancy Pelosi, who refuses to heed Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s advice: “The excuses end now.”

Braying Jackass: “I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but [Trump] is a fraud.” —Bernie Sanders (How interesting and ironic that an avowed socialist is throwing around accusations of fraud.)

Braying Jenny: “My greatest desire is to lead [Trump] right into impeachment.” —Sen. Maxine Waters

Non Compos Mentis: “[The Berkeley rioters] all looked very — almost paramilitary. They were not from the campus. … I don’t want to say factually, but I’ve heard that there was some relationship there between these people and the right-wing … movement that is affiliated with Breitbart News.” —Robert Reich

Late-night humor: “It was announced … that the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will make all of its medals from recycled cellphones. Well, they’re going to make the Olympic torch out of a Samsung Galaxy.” —Jimmy Fallon
