Thursday Short Cuts

Insight: “Wherever is found what is called a paternal government, there is found state education. It has been discovered that the best way to insure implicit obedience is to commence tyranny in the nursery.” —Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881)

Flashback: “I think when it comes to filibustering a Supreme Court appointment, you really have to have something out there — whether it’s gross moral turpitude or something that comes to the surface. Now, I mean, this is a man I might disagree with. That doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be on the Court.” —Sen. Dianne Feinstein in 2006

The BIG Lie: “I can tell you, [Susan Rice] is a woman of highest integrity and character. She took her responsibilities to keep all of us safe [seriously]. … I think Susan thought for her reputation and peace of mind it was important to just go out and speak the truth.” —Valerie Jarrett

Non Compos Mentis: “I think the administration’s decision to cozy up to Russia means that they’re not willing to call a humanitarian war crime exactly what it is.” —Sen. Tim Kaine (Funny, but the Obama administration cozied up to Russia to supposedly remove chemical weapons from Syria. How’d that go?)

Rhetorical bullhorn: “I wouldn’t be surprised after all of this is said and done that some [Trump] people end up in jail.” —Rep. Joaquin Castro

Observations: “Obviously, there are going to be a lot of stars from the Obama years in need of lawyers. One question does bother me: How could so many Obama aides be so stupid as to eavesdrop on team Trump after Trump won the election?” —R. Emmett Tyrrell

Late-night humor: “I heard that the White House is saving all of President Trump’s tweets so they can be stored in the National Archives. That way future generations can read Kennedy’s journals, Lincoln’s diaries, and Trump’s insults about Arnold Schwarzenegger.” —Jimmy Fallon
