Tuesday Short Cuts

“I consider you a part of the Democrat Party.” —Donald Trump to the media

Insight: “Any one of the strange laws we suffer is a compromise between a fad and a vested interest.” —Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936)

These accusations are literally on thin ice: “Kavanaugh is a gang rapist. Ok, not a gang rapist, but a serial rapist. Not a serial rapist, but a rapist. Ok, not a rapist, but a blackout drunk. Not a blackout drunk, but an alcoholic. Not an alcoholic, but he drinks beer. Ok, he just threw ice at somebody once in the 80s.” —Sean Davis

Inquiring minds want to know: “Should we be mad that MSNBC interviewed Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick and put her on camera, considering the implausibility of her claims? Or should we be pleasantly surprised that MSNBC pointed out all of the ways that her story doesn’t add up?” —Jim Geraghty

Speaking truth to power: “I consider you a part of the Democrat Party.” —Donald Trump to the media

Non Compos Mentis: “Overturning Roe v. Wade by an all male majority, two of whom have had credible accusations of sexual misconduct lodged against them, would not be a legitimate action, and that is the question of the court — legitimacy.” —ABC News’s Terry Moran

Braying Jackass: “If Senate GOP ignores Dr. Blasey Ford and tries to muscle an attempted rapist onto the Supreme Court: 1. They will pay dearly this November. 2. Senators up in 2020 (Collins, Gardner et al) will feel intense heat for next two years. 3. Kavanaugh will not serve for life.” —former Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon

Alpha Jackass: “Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.” —Georgetown University professor Carol Christine Fair

And last… “If a leftist SCOTUS nominee was accused of rape, with eye witnesses, pictures and DNA evidence, we wouldn’t be hearing about it half as much as we’ve heard about Brett Kavanaugh throwing ice when he was drunk.” —Allie Beth Stuckey
