Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Erick Erickson, AOC, Adam Schiff, Matt Walsh, and more.

Insight: “An armed society is a polite society.” —Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988)

Observations: “One of the amazing things in America is there are a group of people known for being armed and what they’re mainly feared for is that they vote.” —Frank J. Fleming

Leftmedia circling the wagons: “Reporter: Trump rhetoric is the reason conservatives no longer trust the media. Conservatives: Actually, no. We have long distrusted the media. Trump just gave voice to it. Reporter: See, look how effective Trump’s attacks have been. They don’t even realize it’s Trump’s fault.” —Erick Erickson

For the record: “Something is missing from the charges against Trump: An impeachable offense.” —Andrew McCarthy

By “gifted storyteller” it means “liar”: “Senator Warren is a gifted storyteller.” —New York Times endorsement of Elizabeth Warren

Non compos mentis: “The Democratic Party is not a left party; the Democratic Party is a center, or center-conservative party.” —Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Courting the coveted DUI vote: “I don’t count drunk driving as a felony.” —Joe Biden

Nothing to see here… “The only purpose in putting [Hunter Biden] on their list is they wish to trade material witnesses, like Mr. Bolton and Mulvaney and others, for immaterial ones that will allow them to continue to attack a political opponent. That’s an illegitimate abuse of the trial.” —House Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff

Village idiots: “Bernie respects us enough to tell the truth, the hard truth: We have a 10- to 12-year window to radically transform our energy systems, or climate change, predatory capitalism, and endless war economies will rob us of the right to any future at all.” —actor John Cusack

And last… “I’m a gun rights supporter but I’m frankly embarrassed by the protestors in Virginia [yesterday]. It’s pretty rude to be so peaceful after the media were rooting for violence. Not fair to make them look stupid like that.” —Matt Walsh
