Monday Short Cuts

Delusions of grandeur: “My policies most closely resemble what we see in the UK, in Norway, in Finland, in Sweden.” —Ocasio-Cortez

The Gipper: “I hope the people on Wall Street will pay attention to the people on Main Street. If they do, they will see there is a rising tide of confidence in the future of America.”

Re: The Left: “President Trump is a lot of things, but he’s not Hitler. He didn’t kill millions of people. He didn’t star a world war. He doesn’t have any concentration camps. And to accuse him of being Hitler is intellectually dishonest, and frankly, a huge insult to the millions of Jews who died under Nazi Germany.” —Rep. Dan Crenshaw rebutting Rep. Hank Johnson’s comparison of Trump to Hitler

Braying Jenny I: “I probably have a generational reaction to it, but in any event, I’m not in the censorship business.” —Nancy Pelosi showing deference to Rashida Tlaib’s “impeach the motherf—er” tirade

Braying Jenny II: “He really IS a motherf—er!” —former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell

Demo-gogues: “I think that it only has ever been radicals that have changed this country. Abraham Lincoln made the radical decision to sign the Emancipation Proclamation. Franklin Delano Roosevelt made the radical decision to embark on establishing programs like Social Security. That is radical. … If that’s what radical means, call me a radical.” —Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who’s pushing the Green New Deal

Delusions: “What we have in mind … and my policies most closely resemble what we see in the UK, in Norway, in Finland, in Sweden.” —Ocasio-Cortez

Gun grabbers: “My heart breaks for the victims of the shooting in Torrance and their loved ones. … We must do more to address gun violence.” —Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who was quick to politicize the California bowling alley murders

This just in: “I am not a person of color. I am not a citizen of a tribe. Tribal citizenship is very different from ancestry. Tribes — and only tribes — determine tribal citizenship, and I respect that difference.” —Elizabeth Warren

Alpha Jackass: “Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration to play [Dick Cheney].” —Christian Bale

And last… “Congressman Adam Smith, the new Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, just stated, ‘Yes, there is a provision in law that says a president can declare an emergency. It’s been done a number of times.’ No doubt, but let’s get our deal done in Congress!” —Donald Trump
