Political Editors · Nov. 12, 2018

The Gipper: “There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn’t mind who gets the credit.”

For the record: “Now Democrat lawyers are descending on #Florida. They have been very clear they aren’t here to make sure every vote is counted. They are here to change the results.” —Sen. Marco Rubio

Non Compos Mentis: “Ruth Bader Ginsberg can have my ribs. And my kidneys and a lung. And anything else she needs. She can even have my husband on Thursdays.” —Alyssa Milano

Braying Jenny: “What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.” —Michelle Obama (Somebody did just that but it was a Bernie Sanders supporter looking for Republicans.)

Braying Jenny II: “The new Democratic House will confront the #CultureOfCorruption in the Administration, just as the Constitution requires.” —Nancy Pelosi

Braying Jenny III: “[Trump was] the first person, Republican or Democrat, who refused to say that he would respect the results of this election. Now, that is a direct threat to our democracy.” —Hillary Clinton on the “threat to democracy” when candidates refuse to accept election results

Braying Jenny IV: “Whatever else he was, the man had charm.” —former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards’s on Fidel Castro

Alpha Jackass: “You mock those who lost loved ones because if you gave it any thought at all you would never walk away from any of these [mass shootings] without figuring out a better way to deal with them. And prayer — you think leaving it to God is the answer? We pray for strength. We pray for wisdom. For resolve. But we clearly don’t want to act on any of those here, so what are you praying for?” —CNN’s Chris Cuomo to those who offer prayers after massacres

And last… “From the article below: ‘98% of mass public shootings in the United States since 1950 have occurred in places where guns are banned.’ Thousand Oaks included. This gets little media attention.” —Brit Hume
