Tuesday Short Cuts

“Each day, [Sen. Rubio] is quoting a verse from Proverbs, the GOP’s favorite part of the book,” complains Politico. Rubio’s rebuttal is gold.

Insight: “In a free society the state does not administer the affairs of men. It administers justice among men who conduct their own affairs.” —Walter Lippmann (1889-1974)

Non sequitur: “My grandfather went into World War I on a horse. … But nobody rides a horse … for a living [now]. … Everything changed in two decades. So let’s change everything. We can do this people. Let’s go.” —climate alarmist Bill Nye

Non Compos Mentis: “My discomfort with the gender-reveal party goes beyond my standard objection to fanfare surrounding gestational markers… The issue with gender-reveal parties in particular is: Aren’t they potentially damaging to said tiny humans? For starters, gender-reveal parties don’t actually reveal gender — they reveal anatomy. Gender is a wholly different thing, inextricably tied to the social constructs around it.” —Diane Stopyra in the Cosmopolitan piece, “Dear Parents-to-Be: Stop Celebrating Your Baby’s Gender”

Friendly fire: “In defense we took a wide range of actions [on Russian meddling]. But I don’t think — I think it’s quite clear that that was not sufficient.” —former Obama Secretary of Defense Ash Carter

Alpha Jackass: “The Trump administration is deporting Latinos to make the streets safer. You wanna make the streets safer deport the police!” —comedian George Lopez

Braying Jackass: “I know there’s trouble in this country and we need a guy who can fix that trouble. I wish it was Trump, but it’s not, so let’s just stop whining about what a goon he is and figure out a way to take him aside and put him in a home.” —David Letterman

Belly laugh of the week: “Each day, the Florida senator is quoting a verse from Proverbs, the GOP’s favorite part of the book. Why?” —professor Joel Baden in a byzantine Politico piece titled, “Marco Rubio Is Tweeting the Most Republican Part of the Bible”

And last… “I don’t think Solomon had yet joined the GOP when he wrote the first 29 chapters of Proverbs.” —Marco Rubio responding to Politico
