"The political spirit is the great force in throwing the love of truth and accurate reasoning into a secondary place." —John Viscount Morley

Political Editors · Oct. 19, 2018

Insight: “The political spirit is the great force in throwing the love of truth and accurate reasoning into a secondary place.” —John Viscount Morley (1838-1923)

Upright: “[Bill Clinton’s licentiousness in the White House was] absolutely an abuse of power. Two people made a choice and one of those people was the most powerful man in the world.” —#MeToo founder Tarana Burke, who went on to call Hillary’s contrarian view “tragic” and “wrong”

For the record: “In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught — and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUT SOUTHERN BORDER!” —Donald Trump

Political futures: “Democrats say the most important issue is Donald Trump, and Donald Trump agrees. The President would rather talk about Stormy Daniels and Elizabeth Warren than the economy, and many Republicans have decided that they’d rather talk about immigration than the tax reform and deregulation that have spurred the best run of economic growth since 1999.” —The Wall Street Journal

Braying Jenny: “We owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there is some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose.” —House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

Braying Jackass: “Whether or not [Brett Kavanaugh] attempted to rape [Christine Blasey Ford], I thought he was temperamentally unfit to serve on the Supreme Court because of his outburst during the hearing. I saw him lose his cool.” —Jimmy Carter

Non Compos Mentis: “There’s a distinction between citizenship and ancestry. I wish I had been more mindful of that distinction. The tribes and only the tribes determine citizenship.” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)

And last… “I’m impressed by the moral courage of ABC. They were so outraged by Roseanne’s racism that they … killed her character via a drug overdose so that they could continue profiting off of the brand that she built. Really impressive. Not the least bit cynical or exploitative.” —Matt Walsh
