Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from David Limbaugh, Rand Paul, Michael Knowles, AOC, and more.

Insight: “Authority without wisdom is like a heavy axe without an edge, fitter to bruise than polish.” —Anne Bradstreet (1612-1672)

For the record: “In order to credibly argue that we need a fundamental reordering of our constitutional and judicial systems, leftists must show that America is irredeemably drenched in the sin of racism and can only expatiate itself through the atonement of socialism, reparations, guaranteed universal income, outright wealth redistribution and the rest. This is why I keep saying the endless vendetta against Donald Trump is not primarily about Donald Trump. He is a convenient scapegoat to taint the entire conservative movement. If they can succeed with their preposterous claim that the 74 million Trump supporters were accessories before the fact to the few hundred or so people who stormed the Capitol, then they’ve made a prima facie case that conservative ideas — and conservative speech — are intrinsically hateful and dangerous. What’s the big deal, after all, of silencing ‘domestic terrorists’?” —David Limbaugh

Observations: “I think if we’re going to criminalize speech, and somehow impeach everybody who says, ‘Oh, go fight to hear your voices heard,’ I mean, we really ought to impeach Chuck Schumer then. [Schumer] went to the Supreme Court, stood in front of the Supreme Court and said, specifically, ‘Hey, Gorsuch. Hey, Kavanaugh. You’ve unleashed a whirlwind, and you’re going to pay the price.’” —Senator Rand Paul on the Trump impeachment farce

Tongue-in-cheek: “People keep calling Serena Williams the greatest female athlete of all time, as if Caitlyn Jenner didn’t even exist.” —Michael Knowles

Missed it by that much: “Anthony Brindisi (D) has conceded to Claudia Tenney (R) in #NY22. Final 2020 election House result: 222D, 213R. Republicans came within 31,751 votes of winning the majority.” —Dave Wasserman

Upright: “President Trump’s words and actions leading up to the attack were reckless and wrong. But as we all know, the constitutional standard for impeachment isn’t recklessness.” —Senator John Cornyn

The BIG Lie: “You have great personal courage. I’ve been with some of you when we’ve been shot at.” —Joe Biden in a State Department address (Biden has NOT been shot at anywhere.)

A blind squirrel finds a nut, part I: “These poor kids are not in school. They will never recover from this… It’s time for Joe Biden to stand up and say … the teachers just are going to have to suck it up and stand up and provide an education.” —Michael Bloomberg

A blind squirrel finds a nut, part II: “Republicans have now flipped 15 Democratic House seats even with a losing candidate atop their ticket. Somehow it seems foolish to govern as if progressive views are all that matter.” —NY Times columnist David Brooks

Braying jackass: “I will not apologize for what I said.” —AOC, who ridiculously claimed Ted Cruz “almost had me murdered”

And last… “Customer service in this country is, by and large, so aggressively horrible that a company like Chick-fil-A can stand out simply by having employees that don’t visibly hate you.” —Matt Walsh
