Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” —George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

Non Compos Mentis: “To the deniers out there, or to the extreme skeptics, I want you to think about what is called cognitive dissonance. … Instead of accepting that the climate is changing, deniers are denying the evidence and dismissing the authorities.” —Bill Nye (Submit, you peons!)

Upright: “New EPA Director Scott Pruitt has called for an open debate on climate science, rather than the name-calling and outright dishonesty of the past. Real science has nothing to fear from more openness and discussion, but everything to fear from more politicized dishonesty.” —Investor’s Business Daily

For the record: “[T]he [DNC] election was not without some controversy and a lot of irony. Interim chairman Donna Brazile switched the voting process at the last minute from an electronic ballot to paper ballots, supposedly due to concerns about weak WiFi signals. But Brazile also insisted that she wanted to be able to ‘verify every name and signature.’ If a Republican governor demanded such standards in an election, Brazile would be leading the charge against him, yelling about racism and voter suppression.” —Gary Bauer

Alpha Jackass: “We’re trying to unite the country. And many of the president’s supporters are just not ready to accept the fact … that their judgement might not have been so great in voting for him. And by the time the case [for impeachment] is made, perhaps they’ll be ready to accept that.” —Nancy Pelosi

Late-night humor: “Apple is criticizing Trump after he overturned the rule that lets transgender students use the bathroom of their choice. Apple says that regardless of your gender, everyone should be able to drop an iPhone into whichever toilet they want.” —Jimmy Fallon
