Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from The Washington Post, Paul Butler, Stacey Abrams, and more.

Insight: “Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught in falsehood’s school. And the one man who dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and fool.” —Plato (429-347 BC)

Friendly fire: “[Kamala] Harris and [Elizabeth] Warren have ignored the findings of the Justice Department to accuse [Darren] Wilson of murder, even though the Justice Department found no credible evidence to support that claim. … Harris and Warren both earn Four Pinocchios.” —The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler

Alpha Jackass: “[Donald Trump’s] been fueling the flames of hate and … on the issue of El Paso … he obviously didn’t pull the trigger, but he’s sure been tweeting out the ammunition.” —Sen. Kamala Harris

Non Compos Mentis: “The fact is that Mr. [Jeffrey] Epstein took his own life. He died while he was in the custody of the Trump administration. Bill Barr directs the Bureau of Prisons, and they allowed, in some ways, they facilitated Mr. Epstein’s suicide.” —MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler

Braying Jackass: “If Trump’s nose grew every time he told a lie he could use it as a zip line straight to Vladimir Putin’s bedroom.” —Jimmy Kimmel

Race bait: “Why is Donald Trump so interested in cutting off this generation of immigrants? … He wants a whiter, wealthier nation. That’s what’s he’s interested in.” —Julian Castro

The BIG Lie: “The [Republican National Committee] will be allowed to cheat and lie and go into polling places and scare voters, particularly voters of color.” —Stacey Abrams

And last… “I think [Democrats] live in a fantasy world. Reality is that the United States is lowering emissions, one of the only countries in the world. Matter of fact, I think of all the 194 [countries] that signed on to the Paris Accord, the U.S. is the one that’s leading the world in reducing emissions. That’s what they ought to be talking about — that America [is] transitioning away from old, inefficient power plants to natural gas plants [and] lowering emissions. … It is fantastical when you think about the true misrepresentation of the truth that the Democrats are spewing out there.” —Rick Perry
