Monday Short Cuts

Braying Jenny: “I’d say to Michelle Wolf, ‘Hallelujah, girl. You should be the one getting the Nobel Peace Prize.’” —Ana Navarro

The Gipper: “I hope that when you’re my age you’ll be able to say, as I have been able to say: We lived in freedom. We lived lives that were a statement, not an apology.”

RIP: “Our baby boy grew his wings tonight at 2:30 am. We are heart broken. Thank you everyone for all your support.” —Kate James and Tom Evans, parents of 23-month-old Alfie Evans, announcing his death early Saturday morning — he was a victim of Great Britain’s socialized medicine

Non Compos Mentis: “Do we really want peace? Then let’s ban all weapons so we don’t have to live in fear of war.” —Pope Francis (“Christ teaches that evil desires spring from the sinful heart of man, not inanimate objects (Mt. 15:19, Mk. 7:21). In the first recorded murder in history, Cain’s chosen weapon is never even mentioned, but his sinful anger is.” —Sean Davis)

Braying Jenny: “I’d say to Michelle Wolf, ‘Hallelujah, girl. You should be the one getting the Nobel Peace Prize.’” —CNN’s Ana Navarro

Dezinformatsiya: “Dear Justice Kennedy, As you have no doubt heard, rumors of your impending retirement are, for the second year in a row, echoing around Washington and across America. … How can we put this the right way? Please don’t go. … While a court with two Gorsuches would be quick to vote in favor of religious bakers, it would not be eager to broaden the constitutional rights of gays, lesbians and other vulnerable groups — let alone protect women seeking to control their own bodies. … This is your court, Justice Kennedy. It is facing an institutional crisis, and it needs you.” —New York Times editorial board

Belly laugh of the week: “I’m still a Republican. I didn’t leave the Republican Party. The Republican Party left me.” —Ohio Gov. John Kasich

And last… “It’s funny to me that liberals who whine about Trump’s ego are the same people who tell us THEY know best how we should live our lives. Talk about ego.” —Liz Wheeler
