Friday Short Cuts

Identity politics: "I am not sure it's the time to nominate a white man." —CNN's Harry Enten

Political Editors · Dec. 14, 2018

Insight: “The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.” —Steve Biko (1946-1977)

I blind squirrel finds a nut: “I wish that the press would spend a lot more time on what we need to do here to meet the needs of the American people instead of morning, noon, and night allegations against the president. … I think you’d have more viewers and readers if you address concerns that people have rather than just this ongoing … coverage of what’s current with the president from one day to the next.” —House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

Braying Jackass: “The weakness of the Republican Party has let the Democratic Party … get further out than I think the majority of people want.” —California Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown on Demos going off the rails

Non Compos Mentis: “We’re at this moment in time right now where we have enough information to sit and wonder: Might this be the greatest crime in American history? The subversion of an American election by a foreign power; colluding with and conspiracy with the president’s campaign. It’s extraordinary to consider it.” —MSNBC’s Steve Schmidt

Identity politics: “If you want to win in the Midwest, there may not be a better man than [Sen. Sherrod Brown]. So if Democrats want to play, this is an interesting guy for them. I will point out though, another white male. I am very suspect of that this year going into a Democratic primary with women doing well and the African-American face of the Democratic Party. I am not sure it’s the time to nominate a white man.” —CNN’s Harry Enten

And last… “Disgraced FBI Deputy Director Andy McCabe alongside biased agent Peter Strzok lured Flynn into a casual sit-down, encouraged him not to bring attorneys & never warned of false statement penalties. But Hillary gets to bring 9 attorneys & claim ignorance of classification levels?!” —Kayleigh McEnany
