Thursday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Erick Erickson, Chuck Todd, AOC, and more.

Insight: “None who have always been free can understand the terrible fascinating power of the hope of freedom to those who are not free.” —Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973)

For the record: “[Joe Biden] was a politician in D.C. for 44 years. But if elected, he’s gonna change Washington…” —Robert J. O'Neill, former SEAL who killed Osama

Observations: “A decade ago, proponents of gay marriage asked the question, ‘How does a gay marriage affect you?’ Well now we know — they will try to shut down Christian businesses, schools, and non-profits for not going along with it.” —Erick Erickson

At least he’s honest: “The genesis of impeachment, to be very candid with you, was when the president was running for office.” —Rep. Al Green

Dezinformatsiya: “Why do people support Trump? It’s because people have been trained from childhood to believe in fairy tales. … The more fairy tales and lies he tells the better they feel. … Show me a person who believes in Noah’s ark and I will show you a Trump voter.” —NBC’s Chuck Todd

Alpha jackass: “I was sure that Trump was gonna get elected the day he announced, and I said it’s gonna be like Hitler and the Mexicans are the new Jews. And sure enough, that’s what he delivered.” —singer Linda Ronstadt

The BIG Lie: “What we’re living in right now is not an advanced society. It is fascism, what we have. What we’re evolving into as well.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Non compos mentis: “Abortion rights shouldn’t matter to men because women are our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends. They should matter to men — to everyone — because women are people.” —Sen. Cory Booker

And last… “We have become so rich as a nation that even most poor families can buy dolls and baseball bats and $100 Nike basketball shoes for their kids, as well as cellphones that have more computing power than every computer used to put a man on the moon. It is nonsense to say the poor and the middle class are worse off than they were 20 or 30 or 50 years ago.” —Stephen Moore
