Insight: “Tolerance is a better guarantee of freedom than brotherly love; for a man may love his brother so much that he feels himself thereby appointed his brother’s keeper.” —Everett Dean Martin (1880-1941)

Inquiring minds want to know: “Will [Kamala Harris] visit deputies who were shot (31-year-old mom & 24 year-old) in her state? She visited someone in WI who was charged with felony 3rd-degree sexual assault and said she was proud of him.” —Scott Walker

Hot air: “Donald Trump’s climate denial may not have caused these fires and record floods and record hurricanes, but if he gets a second term, these hellish events will continue to become more common, more devastating, and more deadly. … If we have four more years of Trump’s climate denial, how many suburbs will be burned in wildfires? How many suburban neighborhoods will have been flooded out? How many suburbs will have been blown away in superstorms?” —Joe Biden

Trump vs. Biden on the attempted assassination of deputies in LA: President Trump responded to the attack, saying, “The radical left in America is waging open war on law enforcement. Hundreds of officers nationwide have been injured in left-wing riots and mobs.” Joe Biden used the assault to push his gun-confiscation agenda: “Weapons of war have no place in our communities. We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.” Apparently, Biden thought the assailant used an “AR-14.”

Braying jenny: “I don’t find it a good use of time. Quite frankly, my experience with the president has been that it hasn’t been on the level. You know, he’ll say something and then it doesn’t really happen.” —Nancy Pelosi on not having spoken to Donald Trump in almost a year

Hyperventilating hyperbole: “We are witnessing a homicidal president convening, purposely, a homicidal assembly to help him get reelected as president of the United States instead of protecting the health and welfare of the people of the United States, including his own supporters, whose lives he is willing to sacrifice.” —Carl Bernstein on President Trump’s Nevada rally

Lack of Self-Awareness Award: “We deserve a president who cares whether his fellow Americans live or die.” —Hillary “Benghazi” Clinton

Letting the cat out of the bag: “A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States…” —Kamala Harris

And last… “Activism is a way for useless people to feel important, even if the consequences of their activism are counterproductive for those they claim to be helping and damaging to the fabric of society as a whole.” —Thomas Sowell
