Tuesday Short Cuts

“Hysteria over Kavanaugh is strictly political. … He is controversial only because he will faithfully apply the law.” —Andrew C. McCarthy

For the record: “Hillary [Clinton] is doing all the things that prospective candidates do, and she certainly does not look or sound like someone who is done with politics. During the campaign, Donald Trump said, ‘Elect me and you’ll get tired of winning.’ Maybe Hillary’s 2020 slogan could be, ‘Support me again and you’ll never get tired of losing.’” —Gary Bauer

Braying Jackass I: “The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come and will morph our Supreme Court into a political arm of the right-wing Republican Party.” —Terry McAuliffe

Braying Jackass II: “Civilization as we know it today is at risk in this election. We have to win. We have to win.” —Nancy Pelosi

Non Compos Mentis: “It’s going to be quite a visual when five men overturn Roe.” —Vox’s Ezra Klein (“Seven men decided Roe.” —Matt Walsh)

“Party of Tolerance”: “Very few times I’ve felt threatened while out in the field. The mood here tonight is very volatile. Law enforcement appears to be closing down 1st Street in front of SCOTUS.” —Fox News anchor Shannon Bream on the steps of the Supreme Court

True, but good luck with that: “Progressives can still win many of these issues. They simply will have to do so in a small-d democratic way, by winning elections.” —The New York Times’ David Leonhardt

Fake news: “Fox and Trump, Trump and Fox. You know they’re close. But do you realize just how close? This kind of relationship has never existed between a U.S. president and a TV network. It is unprecedented.” —CNN’s Brian Stelter, seemingly oblivious to the Leftmedia’s fawning over Obama

And last… “Obvious but still worth noting that hysteria over Kavanaugh is strictly political. No one in America would claim he is not a brilliant lawyer. He is controversial only because he will faithfully apply the law rather than use it as a tool to advance the ‘progressive’ agenda.” —Andrew C. McCarthy
