Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from James Carville, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and more.

Insight: “In all men is evil sleeping; the good man is he who will not awaken it, in himself or in other men.” —novelist Mary Renault (1905-1983)

Friendly fire: “Bernie [Sanders] called me a political hack. That’s exactly who the f—k I am! I am a political hack! I am not an ideologue. I am not a purist. He thinks it’s a pejorative. I kinda like it!” —Democrat strategist James Carville

Non compos mentis I: “It has never made sense to me that a tiny group of people should have incredible wealth and power in America while most people have none. That is what we are going to change.” —Sen. Bernie Sanders (“It has never made sense to me why a person who has been a complete drain on taxpayer resources for six decades should have the moral or political standing to demand reordering America.” —Ben Shapiro)

Non compos mentis II: “We’re living right now under Donald Trump in a socialist society. The only difference is, does the government work for working people, or does it work for billionaires?” —Bernie Sanders

It’d be completely different alright: “The fair number should be $22 an hour. That should be the minimum wage in the United States of America: $22. Think about what this country would be like if we had a $22 minimum wage: completely different.” —billionaire Tom Steyer

The BIG Lie: “Nobody has said [Hunter has] done anything wrong. This is a guy who has done nothing but good things his whole life.” —Joe Biden

And last… “In the last week alone: A 15 y/o Trump supporter was attacked. A Republican voter registration booth was [run] over. A California GOP HQ was vandalized. A 50 y/o man was punched after just being mistaken for a Trump supporter. And the media has been silent. I wonder why?” —TPUSA’s Charlie Kirk
