Wednesday Short Cuts

“In case you wonder whether #Democrats truly care about the plight of women, Keith Ellison was elected chief law enforcement official of his state.” —James Woods

Troll master: “In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats. If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!” —Donald Trump

For the record: “How can last night be considered anything but a failure for Democrats? They took the House which was inevitable, but lost seats in the Senate and watched most of their new ‘stars’ — Abrams, O'Rourke, Gillum — lose. Paltry success for the opposing party in a midterm election.” —Matt Walsh

Rubbish: “By winning the House, Democrats can now serve as a bulwark against a White House that has shown no respect for the rule of law — and no interest in bringing the country together. The Democrats’ gains demonstrate that the American people want Congress to stand up to a reckless, divisive president — and to work across the aisle to tackle tough issues.” —Michael Bloomberg

A wave of the blues: “This is heartbreaking. … It’s not a blue wave.” —CNN’s Van Jones

“This is not a blue wave.” —NBC’s Savannah Guthrie

“It is not a blue wave.” —NBC’s Chuck Todd

“This is going to be very grim.” —New York Times columnist Paul Krugman

“Tonight is feeling horrifyingly familiar.” —CNN contributor Peter Beinart

Braying Jackass: “I feel the giant stirring. The awakening is slow, but it is underway. … Torches and death in Charlottesville. Children in cages at the border. The lying, misogyny, racism and attacks on the rule of law from our president. These things poke the giant. It takes time, but the American people are stirring. They always do. And when they awaken, these fevers break very quickly.” —James Comey

Alpha Jackass: “Juanita Broaddrick is full of s—t.” —former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines, who added, “I do not think she’s telling the truth.”

And last… “In case you wonder whether #Democrats truly care about the plight of women, Keith Ellison was elected chief law enforcement official of his state.” —James Woods
