Monday Short Cuts

Biden on Hillary: “I never thought she was a great candidate.” Too bad she can’t wipe away history with a cloth or something.

The Gipper: “The taxpayer: That’s someone who works for the federal government but doesn’t have to take the civil service examination.”

Observations: “The progressives understand that most people have so little knowledge of what the Constitution actually says that, amidst all the chatter about a constitutional crisis, it would never occur to the voters to check out the actual document. Otherwise, they would understand that Trump was well within his presidential rights to fire the director of the FBI for any reason under the sun, including Comey’s excessive height. But, then, most Americans didn’t seem to know or care that Barack Obama spent eight years using the Constitution as his own personal roll of toilet paper.” —Burt Prelutsky

For the record: “What I have found appalling is the number of leaks that have taken place over the last several months. … The real damage to national security is the leaks. These individuals who still stay within the government and are leaking this stuff to the press need to be brought to task.” —former CIA Director John Brennan

Missed opportunity: “I never thought [Hillary Clinton] was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate.” —Joe Biden

Pure evil: “If there’s anything we’ve learned from Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, The Avengers) over the years, it’s this — every single one of us has a hero inside; and it’s our responsibility to use our superpowers to slay.” —Planned Parenthood

And last… “Every time we see the words ‘former U.S. officials’ we should keep in mind there’s a good chance the source would be more accurately characterized as a ‘former Obama administration official.’ This doesn’t mean that former official is automatically lying, just that they have a particular agenda for leaking this information, and one that is being effectively withheld from readers.” —Jim Geraghty
