Thursday Short Cuts

"She's a bright, well connected, sadistic sociopath." —WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Hillary Clinton

Political Editors · Feb. 15, 2018

Observations: “Kehinde Wiley, who painted [the official portrait of] former President Obama, is also known for portraits that depict black women holding the severed heads of white women. … After Kathy Griffin, I had hoped that we could at least agree that severed heads are never a good idea.” —Gary Bauer

Food for thought: “Reminder: make sure to announce your Lenten fast on social media so that everyone can be impressed with your stunning self-sacrifice.” —Matt Walsh

Actions speak louder than words: “The only enemy here is overreach. Now is not the time nor the place to reform the entire legal immigration system. Rather, this is the time for a narrow bill.” —Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY)

Inevitable jackassery: “Whoever says: —'A gun didn’t do this; a sick person did.‘ —'Thoughts and prayers to all the families.’ —'Now is not the time to discuss gun control.‘ Get lost. Get off my feed. You are not part of the America we need to strive for.” —Peter King of Sports Illustrated

Gun control broken record: “Don’t tell me tomorrow isn’t the appropriate time to debate gun violence. If you’re a political leader doing nothing about this slaughter, you’re an accomplice.” —Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT)

Braying Jackass: “To me, [Chief of Staff John Kelly is] somewhat reminiscent of Mike Flynn, to be honest. He just seems to have changed since he’s fallen into the orb of the president.” —former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper

Alpha Jackass: “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct. Hearing voices.” —Joy Behar slandering Mike Pence

Stopped clock: “She’s a bright, well connected, sadistic sociopath.” —WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in a leaked message about Hillary Clinton

And last… “What is far worse than hypocritically standing up for good in public while doing bad in private is to let your own private sins deter you from doing good in public. I would much prefer to see a wicked man be a hypocrite and vote for what is right and good, rather than choose consistency and advocate for wrongdoing.” —Dan McLaughlin
