Observations: “It’s kind of amazing that the people who love crowing about the ‘right side of history’ seem to think that history is going to look kindly upon infanticide."—Peter J. Hasson

For the record: "How will the abortion lobby and its media allies deal with the shocking candor of Del. Tran and Gov. Northam? By denying that they meant what they said. By telling people not to believe what they heard with their own ears and saw with their own eyes on the videos. It won’t work.” —Robert P. George

Upright: “In just a few years pro-abortion zealots went from ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to ‘keep the newborns comfortable while the doctor debates infanticide.’ I don’t care what party you’re from — if you can’t say that it’s wrong to leave babies to die after birth, get the hell out of public office.” —Ben Sasse

Non Compos Mentis: “I have devoted my life to caring for children and any insinuation otherwise is shameful and disgusting.” —Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (“We aren’t insinuating anything. We are flat out accusing you of supporting infanticide because that is precisely what you said.” —Matt Walsh)

Friendly fire I: “I don’t believe the country should be heading to socialism. I think [Elizabeth Warren] believes in programs that will lead to socialism in America. She’s a smart woman; I respect her. This isn’t personal. I just don’t agree with her.” —Howard Schultz

Friendly fire II: “Howard Schultz may be a fool, but he represents a real and dangerous phenomenon: plutocrats willing to undermine resistance to Trump unless they get to keep their taxes low. This isn’t ‘centrism’; it’s attempted blackmail.” —Paul Krugman

Braying Jackass: “The bad news is that we have a president who is a fraud, a pathological liar and a racist. The good news is that the American people are standing up, fighting back and are demanding fundamental changes in our economic and political system.” —Bernie Sanders

Proof, please: “It’s striking how President Trump’s interests align with Russia’s interests.” —Chris Coons

And last… “Democrats are becoming the Party of late term abortion, high taxes, Open Borders and Crime!” —Donald Trump
