Wednesday Short Cuts

Insight: “If Americans wish to preserve a country they will recognize, then the first step is to recognize the enemy. Public education is the enemy. The entertainment industry is the enemy. The corporate culture is the enemy. The advertising industry is the enemy. And most of the politicians in both parties are the enemy. An enemy is defined as anybody, or any organization, which is attacking the traditional beliefs of Americans.” —Charley Reese (1937-2013)

Protesting much: “The notion, which some people are trying to suggest, that by asking for the identity of the American person is the same is leaking it — that’s completely false. There is no equivalence between so-called unmasking and leaking. … I leaked nothing to nobody.” —Susan Rice, denying any wrongdoing in “unmasking” individuals in intelligence reports

Friendly fire: “Not to be a jerk here, but will the real Susan Rice please stand up?” —CNN’s John King

Belly laugh of the week: “The answer, again, isn’t to change the rules, it’s to change the nominee. And we Democrats are not going to oppose every Republican [SCOTUS] nominee.” —Chuck Schumer

For the record: “What does the Left’s newfound enthusiasm for the Bible tell us? It tells us that the Left doesn’t actually believe in the Bible — the Left believes in government. Every time the Left cites the Bible, it does so as an excuse to let government take from some and redistribute to others, or compel work from some on behalf of others.” —Ben Shapiro

A blind squirrel finds a nut: “Some people think that the people who voted for Trump are racists and sexists and homophobes — just deplorable folks. I don’t agree.” —Bernie Sanders

And last… “The people who were skipping around Alaska with a selfie stick while Syrian kids were washing up on beaches will now lecture us on horrors.” —Stephen Miller
