Thursday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Jimmy Fallon, Joe Cunningham, Ayanna Pressley, and more.

Insight: “I hear much of people’s calling out to punish the guilty, but very few are concerned to clear the innocent.” —Daniel Defoe (1660-1731)

Good question: “I don’t understand why pro-life people want to know if they are ‘welcome’ to join the democrat party. Why would any civilized person want to support a barbaric platform that champions abortion for any reason through all nine months funded by taxpayers?” —actress Patricia Heaton

Belly laugh of the week: “Joe Biden finished the night in a distant fifth place. And now the four people ahead of him are scared, because the last place you want Joe Biden is behind you.” —comedian Jimmy Fallon

Friendly fire: “South Carolinians don’t want socialism. We want to know how you are going to get things done and how you are going to pay for them. Bernie’s proposals to raise taxes on almost everyone is not something the Lowcountry wants and not something I’d ever support.” —Democrat Rep. Joe Cunningham

The definition of insanity is… “We’re not going to take our options off table.” —Rep. Eric Swalwell when asked if the Roger Stone situation could lead to another impeachment

“What [AG William] Barr has done [with regard to Roger Stone] should mean that we are demanding a resignation. And if that guy won’t resign, then the House should start impeachment proceedings against him.” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren

The BIG Lie: “The year is 2020 and here we women are still in so many ways not fully free, still shackled. … But this isn’t an accident. The American Constitution is sexist by its very design.” —Rep. Ayanna Pressley

And last… “DEMOCRATS: ‘Give up your AR-15s; it’s ridiculous you’d ever need them to fight tyranny. BTW, we’ve decided to go full Communist.’” —The Babylon Bee’s Frank J. Fleming
