Insight: “It is clear that thought is not free if the profession of certain opinions make it impossible to earn a living.” —Bertrand Russell (1872-1970)

Friendly fire, part I: “It is imperative for Americans to remain focused on our priorities and not give way to side shows and antics. I know that Alabamans need an independent voice in Washington. But we must also insist that our representatives are dignified, decent and respectful of the values we hold dear. I encourage you to take a stand for our core principles and for what is right. These critical times require us to come together to reject bigotry, sexism and intolerance.” —Condoleezza Rice opposing Roy Moore

Friendly fire, part II: “I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore. The state of Alabama deserves better.” —Sen. Richard C. Shelby (R-AL)

Just like we predicted: “President Trump has committed assault … and he should be fully investigated and he should resign.” —Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

Braying Jenny: “Whether we realize it or not, most men hate women.” —Sally Kohn

Non Compos Mentis: “Former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that there’s ‘no legitimate’ reason why the public should see her testimony about her role in tea party targeting, pleading with a judge to keep her deposition permanently sealed. Ms. Lerner and her former chief lieutenant, Holly Paz, have said they faced death threats in the past, and say they fear any more attention to their behavior would spur a new round of harassment. They said there’s ‘exceedingly low’ public interest in having their depositions released, and they said tea party groups are pushing for disclosure out of ‘spite.’” —The Washington Times

Broken clock… “It’s true, we’ve NEVER had a president like Trump — he actually keeps his promises. No wonder the liberal media can’t stand him.” —Piers Morgan

And last… “The thing about conceal carry is it’s completely useless to criminals. It’s not like you can rob a liquor store and go, ‘Oh. It’s okay. I have a permit.’” —Frank Fleming
