Thursday Short Cuts

G.K. Chesterton observes: "Journalism is popular, but it is popular mainly as fiction. Life is one world, and life seen in the newspapers is another."

Insight: “Journalism is popular, but it is popular mainly as fiction. Life is one world, and life seen in the newspapers is another.” —Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936)

Village Idiots: “Now I haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet … but something tells me that a movie about a strong, powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley.” —the delusional Hillary “Wonder Woman” Clinton

Braying Jenny: “Is Trump making America mentally ill?” —Kathleen Parker

Braying Jackass: “I would argue the president has unleashed, partially, again not in any way totally, but partially [he is] to blame for the demons that have been unleashed.” —Rep. Mark Sanford

Alpha Jackass: “Virginia: No background checks. No licensing. No registration. No permit req’d for concealed carry of long guns. Open carry long guns & handguns. … We seem to dread that we’ll offend the gods if we seek to prevent the plagues that regularly ravage our villages. Prayers instead!” —The Atlantic’s David Frum

Non Compos Mentis: “There are too many guns on the street. … We lose 93 million [not a typo] Americans a day to gun violence. I mean, I’ve long talked about this. Background checks, shutting down gun show loopholes. That’s not for today’s discussion, but it’s not just for politicians.” —Terry McAuliffe

And last… “[James] Hodgkinson longed for a ‘more progressive tax system.’ Readers of his various notes on the subject probably figured he was talking about mere policy debates when he lamented in 2012 that it was ‘a shame that Democrats won’t attack the Republicans.’” —James Freeman
