Wednesday Short Cuts

Jim Geraghty posits: “Antifa chants, ‘No Trump, no wall, no USA at all.’ The label ‘anti-American’ is not a pejorative, it’s just descriptive.”

Insight: “A man’s admiration for absolute government is proportionate to the contempt he feels for those around him.” —Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859)

Non Compos Mentis: “Hurricane season, if you want to say there is a hurricane season any longer because we see these things in all seasons, lasts for a couple more months.” —MSNBC’s Katy Tur (Yep, the hurricane that struck the East Coast last January was just horrible.)

Alpha Jackass: “I don’t believe in instant Karma but this kinda feels like it for Texas. Hopefully this will help them realize the GOP doesn’t care about them.” —University of Tampa professor Kenneth L. Storey

Dezinformatsiya: “Houston doesn’t showcase ‘America at its best.’” —Slate headline

Grasping for straws: “There was no acknowledgment from the White House that the first lady’s storm attire was at all off-key.” —Politico taking issue with Melania Trump’s decision to sport stilettos during her trip to Texas

Braying Jenny: “I am no longer sorry [for holding a faux severed head of Trump]. The whole outrage was BS, The whole thing got so blown out of proportion. … Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the president of the United States is committing.” —"comedian" Kathy Griffin

A blind squirrel finds a nut: “The question is whether [Trump] can learn and change. If so, I believe he can be a good president.” —Sen. Dianne Feinstein

Hell hath frozen over: “Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts.  The violent actions of people calling themselves antifa in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.” —Nancy Pelosi

And last… “Antifa chants, ‘No Trump, no wall, no USA at all.’ The label ‘anti-American’ is not a pejorative, it’s just descriptive.” —Jim Geraghty
