Wednesday Short Cuts

Chuck Schumer absurdly claims President Trump picked Brett Kavanaugh to “be a barrier” in the Robert Mueller investigation.

Insight: “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.” —C. S. Lewis (1898-1963)

Hypocrite: “Considering the ample evidence that President Trump will only select a nominee who will undermine protection for Americans with preexisting conditions, give greater weight to corporate interests than the interests of our citizens, no what matter what president says, and vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, the next nominee has an obligation, a serious and solemn obligation, to share their personal views on these legal issues, no matter whom President Trump selects tonight.” —Chuck Schumer on Monday (“There is a grand tradition, that I support, that you can’t ask a judge who was nominated or a potential judge who was nominated for a judgeship about a specific case that might come before them.” —Chuck Schumer in 2017)

Non Compos Mentis: “Sen. McConnell told the president that there were other nominees who could have been confirmed more easily. Why did the president stick with Kavanaugh? Because he’s worried that [Robert] Mueller will go the Court and ask that the president be subpoenaed and ask to do other things necessary to move the investigation forward. And President Trump knows that Kavanaugh will be a barrier to preventing that investigation from going there.” —Chuck Schumer

And your point? “When the Constitution was written in the late 18th century, people were expected to die in their 50s. The Framers never contemplated that these terms would regularly go to 30-plus years as they do now. I’m glad everybody’s living longer, but that’s what raises the stakes on these nomination fights so much more, because they serve for so long.” —CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin

Braying Jackass: “Hey, Texas! I suppose you’re going to re-elect Ted Cruz, but I hope you don’t. Beto O'Rourke is mega-cool. Smart, too. Also, jeez, do we have to look at Ted for another six years? The mind reels.” —author Stephen King

And last… “When they lose the White House, we must change the electoral college. When they lose the Supreme Court, we must change the number of justices. When they win one congressional seat (from themselves), the people have spoken and we must change our entire economy to socialism.” —Twitter satirist @hale_razor
