Wednesday Short Cuts

An Olympic gold medalist praises North Korea’s and Cuba’s anti-obesity “achievements.”

Insight: “To be nobody but yourself — in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you like everybody else — means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.” —E. E. Cummings (1894-1962)

Friendly fire: “One opinion I don’t have to stifle anymore is that I think the Keystone XL pipeline should have been built.” —Adam Sieminski, administrator under Obama’s Energy Information Administration

The BIG lie: “I have not called for [Trump’s] impeachment.” —Maxine Waters shortly after tweeting, “I’m going to fight everyday [sic] until he’s impeached”

Delusions of grandeur: “The biggest misconception is the assumption that because our founding fathers included gun ownership in the constitution, the ‘right to bear arms’ is inalienable forever. Ideas have a ‘time’ and with changing times and changing understanding, even documents like the Constitution need to be amended to reflect the needs of the time. When the constitution was written, survival on the frontier depended on the ability to hunt and defend from harm and guns were important to that basic survival. We no longer live in this kind of environment and so the time has come to change the rules.” —Girl Rising founder Holly Gordon

Non Compos Mentis: “If you think of the two countries in the world that got a handle on obesity, what do you think they are? Which two countries? North Korea and Cuba.” —British Olympic gold medalist James Cracknell

And last… “If the president walked across the surface of the Potomac River this afternoon, the morning headlines would read, ‘Trump Can’t Swim.’” —Gary Bauer
