Monday Short Cuts

CBS’s Scott Pelley suggests last week’s shooting was “self-inflicted.” Because leftists are never responsible for their actions.

The Gipper: “The state of California has no business subsidizing intellectual curiosity.”

Observations: “Understand, I like President Trump. I want him to be able to carry through on his promises to get rid of ObamaCare, reform the tax code, build the wall and finally move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. But, sometimes he leaves me shaking my head. Why, for instance, didn’t he replace Comey on the first day of his administration? Both sides of the aisle in Congress would have flung confetti in the air. Instead, he waited four months and then dumped the guy in the most suspicious way possible, turning him not only into the world’s tallest political martyr, but the smuggest and least appealing.” —Burt Prelutsky

A broken clock is right twice a day: “The cold biological truth is that sex changes are impossible. Every single cell of the human body remains coded with one’s birth gender for life. Intersex ambiguities can occur, but they are developmental anomalies that represent a tiny proportion of all human births.” —lefty self-described transgender Camille Paglia

Dezinformatsiya: “It’s time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress [Wednesday] was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted.” —CBS’s Scott Pelley

Race bait: “It’s a delicate thing because obviously everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race.” —MSNBC’s Joy-Ann Reid

Braying Jackass: “No, the answer isn’t carry a gun. The answer is tone down your rhetoric and act like a leader, and bring people together, and stop fanning the flames of hate. That’s the answer. The answer is create an atmosphere where you don’t need a gun.” —Gov. Andrew Cuomo chastising Chris Collins

Late-night humor: “It really is amazing Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong Un are friends. Especially considering Kim Jong Un doesn’t speak English and Dennis Rodman doesn’t speak English.” —Jimmy Kimmel
