The Gipper: “Freedom is the right to question and change the established way of doing things. It is the continuous revolution of the marketplace. It is the understanding that allows us to recognize shortcomings and seek solutions.”

Because the end justifies the means? “Scientific data are not the only medium of communication or its only currency. Narrative and emotion matter too. Most people simply have no idea how scary climate change is. However that terrible urgency is communicated, the world is better for it.” —Vox’s David Roberts

The BIG Lie: “Don’t forget when you lose, you tend to amplify ‘would’ve, could’ve, should’ve.’ When you win you cover up your sins. … We worked last year. We won the election. It was stolen.” —Jesse Jackson

Demo-gogues: “I’ve always been reluctant, because I think impeachment is something that really has an impact on the country. So when the facts are clear — the law is certainly clear — when the facts are clear, then this Congress will make a decision in that regard.” —Nancy Pelosi

Braying Jenny: “Senate Republicans’ final health repeal bill is sickening. They ignored moms and dads who are terrified that their sick kids will lose care. They ignored elderly Americans who will be bankrupted by medical costs. They were driven solely by their vicious hatred for President Obama.

Alpha Jackass: “Senior White House adviser and Satan’s trophy wife Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News and used a little visual aid to drive home her point.” —"comedian" Stephen Colbert

And last… “Ever notice how environmentalists are the only ideological faction the left permits to hector women about their reproductive choices?” —Jonah Goldberg
