Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from William O. Douglas, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and more.

Insight: “Since when have we Americans been expected to bow submissively to authority and speak with awe and reverence to those who represent us?” —Justice William O. Douglas (1898-1980)

For the record: “A lot of people are going to be super unhappy with West Coast high tech as the de facto arbiter of free speech.” —Elon Musk

Non compos mentis: “There’s no exemption for being put on the no-fly list. Even a member of Congress that commits a crime, you know, they’re expelled from the body. There are ethics charges that can be brought against those individuals. And people are looking at all of this.” —House Homeland Security Committee Chair Bennie G. Thompson

Braying jenny: “It has been an epiphany for the world to see that there are people in our country led by this president, for the moment, who have chosen their whiteness over democracy.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

A trip down memory lane: “Our election was hijacked. There is no question. Congress has a duty to #ProtectOurDemocracy & #FollowTheFacts.” —Nancy Pelosi, May 2017

Braying jackass: “I think [Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley] should just be flat beaten the next time they run. They’re part of the Big Lie.” —Joe Biden basically calling said senators Nazis (Wait, is he inciting violence?)

Race bait: “Our priority will be black-, latino-, Asian-, and Native American-owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and rebuild.” — Joe Biden (“Why not hard-hit, struggling business owners who need assistance, without regard to the color of their skin, gender or ethnic heritage?” —Ari Fleischer)

World’s smallest violin: “I have nothing but contempt at this point for Kevin McCarthy who carried the president’s water throughout these four years.” —Rep. Adam “Russian Delusion” Schiff

And last… “What more could America’s power elite be doing right now to send the message that only the Capital matters, and you clods out there in the Hunger Games districts need to stop whining about how much you’ve suffered?” —John Hayward
