Political Editors / July 3, 2018

Tuesday Short Cuts

“The argument that the signers made to justify their revolution was an argument against all forms of governmental privilege.” —Jay Cost

Insight: “Life, faculties, production — in other words, individuality, liberty, property — this is man. And in spite of the cunning of artful political leaders, these three gifts from God precede all human legislation and are superior to it.” —Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)

Non Compos Mentis: “We know LeBron James has been outspoken about Trump. So it makes sense to head to California, the heartland of the #resistance. The fact that he will be trying to resist the dominance of the Warriors is an added plot twist.” —fake newsman Dan Rather


Braying Jenny: “Sarah Huckabee has no right to live a life of no fuss, no muss, after lying to the press — after inciting against the press. These people should be made uncomfortable, and I think that’s a life sentence, frankly.” —MSNBC’s Jennifer Rubin

The lady doth protest too much: “Stealing the [Merrick] Garland [Supreme Court] seat … represents the pinnacle of Republican obstruction. With the confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch, the court further restricted voting rights, undermined worker rights, and upheld the discriminatory Muslim travel ban. Justice Anthony Kennedy’s replacement could shift the court even further to the right, threatening a woman’s freedom to control her own body, the right of LGBT Americans to marry, and access to health care for millions with pre-existing conditions. … With so much at stake, action on any Supreme Court nominee should wait until after the American people vote in November. It’s the right thing to do.” —Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)

And last… “While it is true that the Declaration was a statement of revolt by men of privilege against those with even more privilege, that is hardly the full story, and it elides why we still mark the occasion annually. The argument that the signers made to justify their revolution was an argument against all forms of governmental privilege. And in this way, the Declaration is more radical than the individual men who wrote it or signed it, for it let loose upon the world a new way of ordering society itself.” —Jay Cost
