Tuesday Short Cuts

Sen. Pocahontas, meanwhile, wants Republicans to “leave their bodies to science. I would like to cut them open.”

Insight: “Justice in the hands of the powerful is merely a governing system like any other. Why call it justice? Let us rather call it injustice, but of a sly effective order, based entirely on cruel knowledge of the resistance of the weak, their capacity for pain, humiliation and misery.” —Georges Bernanos (1888-1948)

For the record: “The new federal spending bill proposed in the Republican-controlled Congress to fund the government through the end of September … is 1,665 pages long and includes an average of approximately 210 words per page. That makes this bill approximately 350,000 words long — or about twice as long as the stimulus law … that President Barack Obama signed less than a month after his inauguration in 2009.” —Terence Jeffrey (“Why is anybody voting Republican if this is what happens when we win?” —Rush Limbaugh)

Playing with fire: “If it would be appropriate for me to meet with [Kim Jong-Un] … I would be honored to do it if it’s … under the right circumstances.” —Donald Trump

Alpha Jackass: “God, what planet do they live on? I hope [Republicans] leave their bodies to science. I would like to cut them open.” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren

Braying Jackass: “President Bush — I never thought I would pray for the day that you were president again.” —Nancy Pelosi

Non Compos Mentis: “Our most important power is not the mister in the White House — I can’t even mention his name. The power is with all of you. No human being is illegal. We must treat everyone with dignity.” —DNC chief Tom Perez, whose supposed compassion for humans doesn’t include babies inside the womb

And last… “Instead of fighting the inhumane treatment of gays outside of the West, the top human rights issue for LGBT activists is making sure we don’t hurt feelings of people who dispute the definition of being gay.” —Taylor Fogarty
