Insight: “Think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of ‘em are stupider than that.” —George Carlin (1937-2008)

For the record: “The reason great dealmakers do not OPENLY celebrate a deal, especially one that is not complete, is that it shows weakness to the other side.” —Donald Trump … in 2013

This isn’t love; it’s Trump Derangement Syndrome: “If this country hasn’t broken your heart, you don’t love her enough. If you’re not deeply disturbed by what’s coming, you got to check your own love.” —Sen. Cory Booker

Yes, this is the Demo agenda: “Folks are trying to divide us and cut us up, pin us against each other — poor white folks against poor black folks, poor brown folks against poor black folks.” —Cory Booker

Hyper hypocrisy: “It’s a real lesson to any country; if you’re going to negotiate with Donald Trump it pays to have a nuclear bomb in your pocket.” —Nancy Pelosi, who still defends Barack Obama’s Iran deal

Wait — what about “my body, my choice”? “If you care about queer people ― or you yourself are queer ― you have absolutely no business eating at Chick-fil-A. Ever. It’s really that straightforward. … Yeah, I know, I know ― it sucks that we can’t have waffle fries. But you know what sucks even more? Not having equal rights and contributing to the profits of a company that wants to ensure you never do because it believes you’re fundamentally disordered or unnatural or sinful or some delightful combination of all three. … It’s time to choose where your loyalties lie ― with your community or with your stomach.” —The Huffington Post’s Noah Michelson

And last… “The Left has been having a tantrum over Chick-fil-A for years now. Chick-fil-A has just ignored them and made no effort to apologize or change its ways for the sake of the whining bullies. This is a model we all can follow.” —Matt Walsh
