Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Erick Erickson, Lisa Boothe, Bernie Sanders, and more.

For the record: “Many of the news outlets breathlessly covering the [Harvey] Weinstein verdict actually served for years as his enablers by covering up and excusing his bad behavior. They knew, but wanted access to him. Same with Jeffrey Epstein.” —Erick Erickson

Observations, part I: “The irony of Bernie’s beliefs is that socialism ends up empowering the elite and the ruling class. His supporters would end up handing over their freedom and future to the people they detest and distrust. It makes no sense at all.” —Fox News’s Lisa Boothe

Observations, part II: “The challenge for taking on Bernie is that his support isn’t about a specific policy, it’s a movement. The perception is that he’s fighting for those on the Left. The attacks will just elevate him and make him bigger.” —Lisa Boothe

Political futures: “If Sanders wins the nomination, Democrats can kiss Florida goodbye. The state is full of immigrants who fled Castro’s communism and other socialist regimes throughout Latin America.” —Campaign for Working Families founder Gary Bauer

Actually, you made the choice fairly easy: “We know the Russians are continuing to try to choose our next president like they chose our last president.” —Hillary Clinton

Non compos mentis I: “My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate.” —Joe Biden

Non compos mentis II: “I’m the guy that came back after meeting with [Chinese leader] Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China would join [the Paris Climate Accord] if we put pressure on them.” —Joe Biden (Deng died in 1997.)

Stop digging: “I have been extremely consistent and critical of all authoritarian regimes all over the world including Cuba, including Nicaragua, including Saudi Arabia, including China, including Russia. I happen to believe in democracy, not authoritarianism. But you know, you can take China as another example. China is an authoritarian country becoming more and more authoritarian. But can anyone deny … that they have taken more people out of extreme poverty than any country in history?” —Sen. Bernie Sanders

And last… “Bernie Sanders is perfectly fine with Castro locking up dissidents, murdering political opponents, and starving their citizens as long as they have literacy tests so the people can read while they get murdered.” —TPUSA’s Charlie Kirk
