Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Ronald Reagan, Mazie Hirono, John Harwood, and more.

Insight: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” —Ronald Reagan

Friendly fire: “People like Bernie Sanders who are running on throwing the whole U.S. economy out the window and starting from scratch — he’s running on taking private health insurance away from 180 million Americans. I just think that makes our job so much harder in terms of beating Donald Trump.” —John Delaney

Due process for me but not for thee: “I don’t care what kind of nice, little, legal, constitutional defenses that they came up with.” —Sen. Mazie Hirono

Race bait: “I am very concerned about the racial division that this president has fostered. And I’m meeting a lot of voters who are no longer willing to look the other way on that, looking for a new political home.” —Pete Buttigieg

Alpha jackass: “Of 51 Republican senators who voted to block John Bolton’s testimony in Trump impeachment trial, 25 represent states of the Confederacy during the Civil War. The old Confederacy represents the bulwark of the 21st century GOP.” —CNN’s John Harwood, who subsequently remarked, “Deleted a tweet because I made a tabulation mistake. 23 of 51 Senate GOP votes to block Bolton testimony came from states of the old Confederacy, not 25.”

Non compos mentis: “Coronavirus task force another example of Trump administration’s lack of diversity.” —CNN headline

And last… “The NFL claims they are taking a stand against sex trafficking yet they have a halftime show degrading and objectifying women with pole dancing. A horrendous example to the millions of young women across the world.” —Charlie Kirk
