Political Editors · Feb. 4, 2020

Insight: “Powers once assumed are never relinquished, just as bureaucracies, once created, never die.” —Charley Reese (1937-2013)

For the record I: “The party that wants to take over your healthcare and economy could not even kick off their presidential election season with competence. Perhaps whoever planned their impeachment charade planned the caucuses. What a waste of time.” —Erick Erickson

For the record II: “The party that thinks the Russians are stealing elections did a hell of a job running their election last night. Who needs the Russians when you have Team Clinton hacks building apps.” —Erick Erickson

Observations: “It’s completely unsurprising that the party that invented the collusion hoax, the whistleblower hoax, and the hoax impeachment ‘crimes,’ invented an election app that crashed on the day of the election.” —Dan Bongino

Belly laugh: “Have we tried unplugging Iowa and plugging it back in?” —Casey Mattox

Alpha jackass: “Ask yourself this simple question: Is the world a better place or a worse place with Rush Limbaugh in it?” —religious scholar Reza Aslan on Rush’s announcement of advanced lung cancer

Braying jackass: “I do not ask you to convict him because truth or right or decency matters nothing to him, but because we have proven our case and it matters to you. … You are decent. He is not who you are.” —Rep. Adam Schiff

Grand delusions: “If abuse of power is not impeachable … then a whole range of utterly unacceptable conduct in a president would now be beyond reach. Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently and let Jared Kushner run the country, delegating to him the decision whether to go to war. Because those things are not necessarily criminal, this argument would allow that he could not be impeached for such abuses of power.” —Adam Schiff

And last… “Donald Trump became the first president to win both the Democrat and Republican caucus.” —Charlie Kirk
