Friday Short Cuts

For the record: “[With Neil Gorsuch,] Democrats have muffed a clear opportunity to contrast themselves with the fumbling GOP and left Americans with a choice between a party struggling to govern and another absolutely refusing to do so.” —Ed Morrissey

Braying Jenny: “Shocking, almost sinful — really sinful — to be so degrading of God’s creation. The administration’s attack on science and the Clean Power Plan will not bring back jobs to the coal country. It will only poison our air and undermine America’s ability to win good-paying, clean jobs of the future.” —Nancy Pelosi

Braying Jackass: “This is such a nonsensical, and stupid, and dangerous approach. It’s almost indescribable, Look, the scientific community is virtually unanimous. While Trump and his friends may think climate change is a hoax, what the scientists are telling us [is that] it is real, [and] it is caused by human activity.” —Bernie Sanders

Non Compos Mentis: “The human population [is] getting so big that we are raising so many farm animals. It’s very reasonable that we’re creating a tremendous amount of extra methane that wouldn’t otherwise be there in the atmosphere. And that is causing global warming and climate change to happen more rapidly than it would otherwise. … It’s also reasonable that agriculture researchers are going to produce or breed farm animals that produce less methane by changing the bacteria that are in their stomachs.” —Bill Nye

Friendly fire: “It’s disturbingly aggressive for [California Attorney General Xavier] Becerra to apply this criminal statute to [pro-lifers] who were trying to influence a contested issue of public policy, regardless of how sound or popular that policy may be. … The state doesn’t need to threaten the pair with prison time.” —Los Angeles Times editorial

Just sayin’: “China is the only one that can control Kim Jong Un, this crazy fat kid that’s running North Korea.” —John McCain

And last… “The real reason that people want ObamaCare repealed is because their premiums went up. They could care less about the policy. … Let’s face it, it’s not an ideological argument that says ObamaCare is inherently bad because it’s named ObamaCare. It’s because premiums went up.” —House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows
