Thursday Short Cuts
Bill Nye longs for the day when "climate change deniers" will "age out." Because science!
For the record: “A recent Bloomberg poll asked Americans to rank the most important issues facing the country. … Only six percent of Americans said Russia was the most important issue facing the country today. Now let’s compare this to the results of a recent survey by our friends at the Media Research Center. … The left-wing media’s most important issue [Russia] ranked 6th among the public. The second most important issue to the media [climate change] tied for fourth place among the people. But the people’s number one issue — health care — ranked fourth in the media’s coverage. It’s no wonder Americans are increasingly losing faith in biased big media.” —Gary Bauer
Still hasn’t learned to stop digging: “There have been numerous times when Trump should have been convicted of a crime. If Robert Mueller does the investigation that I think he’s going to do, I think he will connect the dots. I think that they’re going to find not only conflict of interest but also obstruction of justice. I think he’s in for new possibilities of either being charged criminally or, as I think, impeached.” —Maxine Waters
Braying Jenny: “[The Republican budget] requires more military might. It takes us down the wrong path. We take an oath to protect and defend. … But that’s not the point of this. This is supposed to be a budget that prevents the spread of violence. Instead they have a budget that stirs it up.” —Nancy Pelosi
Alpha Jackass: “Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It’s generational. So we’re just going to have to wait for those people to ‘age out,’ as they say. ‘Age out’ is a euphemism for ‘die.’” —Bill Nye the “Old Guy”
Democrats leave no choice: “President Trump’s promise to let our health care system collapse is so, so wrong on three counts. It’s a failure morally, it’s a failure politically, and it’s a remarkable failure of presidential leadership.” —Chuck Schumer
And last… “Success has a thousand fathers, the saying goes, while failure is an orphan. If so, lots of people in Washington, DC, want to conduct paternity tests over the stunning failure of Republicans to pass a repeal of ObamaCare in some form.” —Ed Morrissey
