Thursday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Josh Hawley, Chris Coons, Amy Coney Barrett, and more.

Observations: “The New York Post has the story. It must be good if Facebook and Twitter have pulled out the stops to suppress it and the Biden campaign has responded wildly. … I can only say that I wish the biggest problem with Joe Biden were his corruption, or that voters cared about it. The corruption scandal has been hiding in plain sight for quite a while. … Also hiding in plain sight, however, are Biden’s incapacity and the socialist mania of the Democratic Party in its turn to the extreme left. And yet the caravan moves on.” —Scott Johnson

For the record: “Twitter’s censorship of this story is quite hypocritical, given its willingness to allow users to share less-well-sourced reporting critical of other candidates for public office. Accordingly, this can only be seen as an obvious and transparent attempt by Twitter to influence the upcoming Presidential election.” —Senator Josh Hawley on the Hunter Biden story

Mansplaining: “My core concern here, your honor, is that your confirmation may launch a new chapter of conservative judicial activism, unlike anything we’ve seen in decades. … And so with all due respect, I will be voting against your confirmation.” —Senator Chris Coons

Rebutting Coons: “I hope that you aren’t suggesting that I don’t have my own mind, or that I couldn’t think independently or that I would just decide like, ‘Let me see what Justice Scalia has said about this in the past.’ I assure you I have my own mind.” —Amy Coney Barrett

It’s a trap: “Do you accept that COVID-19 is infectious? Do you accept that smoking causes cancer? … And do you believe that climate change is happening and is threatening the air we breathe and the water we drink?” —Kamala Harris springing a trap for Amy Coney Barrett — one the nominee did not fall for

Braying jenny: “She should be called ‘Judge Amy Father Husband’ because she is named after the men she has obeyed all her life as a Handmaid in this nutty People of Praise religious cult that Democrats are too polite to mock. This is why Dems lost to Trump last time. Courage up, people.” —Toronto Star columnist Heather Mallick

Haters: “You worthless f—ing pigs.” —T.J. L'Heureux, campaign spokesman for Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly, in a message directed at Chicago police

And last: “It appears that ACB got great training for this hearing during all her years in the classroom, patiently explaining to students who didn’t know much how the law actually works.” —Rich Lowry
