Insight: “Liberty without learning is always in peril and learning without liberty is always in vain.” —John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)

Upright: “The most important thing for us is to send a message to the world that the border is not open. Please don’t come. You will be apprehended if you do come, and you will be deported promptly.” —Attorney General Jeff Sessions

Believe it when you see it: “When the Democrats return to the majority and capture the presidency … we will restore the 60-vote margin. We will ensure that, for the Supreme Court, there is that special margin that any candidate has to reach because that is essential to ensuring that our country has a confidence in those people that are nominated, rather than just someone who just passes a litmus test.” —Sen. Ed Markey

Flashback: “We would be in a much worse situation had the United States acted [militarily]. … Syria would still have a declared chemical weapons stockpile. Right now they don’t.” —Josh Earnest in September 2015

Race bait: “That the missiles are called tomahawks must enrage a lot of Native Americans.” —Mother Jones editor Clara Jeffery (“On behalf of the Jewish people, I am willing to waive all offense if we rename Tomahawk missiles Hebrew Hammers.” —Ben Shapiro)

Non Compos Mentis Godwin’s Law Moment of the Week or Whatever: “We didn’t use chemical weapons in World War II. You know, you had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.” —Trump spokesman Sean Spicer in a pathetically convoluted attempt to talk about Assad’s chemical weapons use, for which he later apologized

And last… “Hillary says losing wasn’t her fault: Russia meddled into her corruption. FBI investigated her corruption. Hackers exposed her corruption.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatbest
