By Political Editors ·

Who knew? “Backbencher Democrats will confess that impeachment in the House is deader than a Joe Biden political rally.” —Rep. Matt Gaetz

Friendly fire: “Overall, I think MSNBC, in the Trump era, has done real damage to the Left and I’ll tell you why. … The Russia story and what happened there was important, but it was not all-important, and they went so far in the realm of conspiracy theorizing.” —former MSNBC host Krystal Ball

For the record: “In the past few years, attacks on the credibility of the Supreme Court have increased. Those attacks skyrocketed after the Obamacare decision in which John Roberts, in his Solomonic wisdom, decided to split the baby. It signaled that the refs could be roughed up. Ever since, various progressives and their allies in the mainstream media have escalated and amplified attacks on the Court because they know John Roberts worries chiefly about the reputation of the Court.” —Erick Erickson

Political futures: “The partisan relitigation of Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation is an embarrassment to the country, but it is useful in putting the 2020 election stakes in sharp relief. The future of the Supreme Court is on the ballot in Senate races as much as in the presidential race.” —The Wall Street Journal

Party pooper: “We have our hands full with impeaching the president right now and that’s going to take up our limited resources and time for a while.” —House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler all but dismissing the idea of probing Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Braying jenny: “Trump awaits instructions from his Saudi masters. Having our country act as Saudi Arabia’s b—h is not ‘America First.’” —Rep. Tulsi Gabbard

Braying jackass: “[Trump] has the blood of those 22 people in El Paso on his hands.” —Beto O'Rourke

Non compos mentis: “Those who are white try, but we can never fully understand [racism].” —old white man Joe Biden

And last… “If you had a magic wand that could magically cause all guns to disappear in the world and never come back, would you use it? Looking at the world before guns and how much more the strong preyed on the weak, I’d say I definitely would not.” —Frank J. Fleming
