Friday Short Cuts

“It matters very little whether or not the rest of the world likes us, as long as they respect us.” —Allie Beth Stuckey

Insight: “The function of the prosecutor under the federal Constitution is not to tack as many skins of victims as possible against the wall. His function is to vindicate the rights of the people as expressed in the laws and give those accused of crime a fair trial.” —Justice William O. Douglas (1898-1980)

Ouch: “I can’t help but wonder when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eye and lie to her about Lisa Page?” —Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) to Peter Strzok

Braying Jenny: “Many people say that [Rep. Jim Jordan] did know [about sexual abuse at Ohio State University]. And by his own standard he should have known. … Jim Jordan had a duty to protect them. They say he failed.” —Nancy Pelosi (Fifteen ex-wrestlers say he didn’t fail.)

Right — so stop plotting obstruction (part I): “There is no way we can prevent the Senate from meeting [on Brett Kavanaugh]. There’s been some discussion about that, but it just wouldn’t happen.” —Chuck Schumer

Right — so stop plotting obstruction (part II): “Some of the people who have come up to me at parades and said, ‘Shut 'em down, do this, do that,’ [which] reflects a limited understanding of how the Senate operates.” —Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL)

Political theater: “A woman said, ‘How do you feel about assault rifles?’ And I said they should be banned. … [A]nd I just said to her, ‘I want you to know Cindy, I cannot say that.’ And she said, ‘Well, I want you to,’ and I said, ‘I won’t win.’” —New York’s 21st Congressional District candidate Tedra Cobb

And last… “What liberals don’t understand is that it matters very little whether or not the rest of the world likes us, as long as they respect us.” —Allie Beth Stuckey
