Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Ari Fleischer, Tommy Tuberville, Alyssa Milano, and more.

Insight: “Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.” —Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

Observations: “Biden says, and the MSM goes along, that anything less than $1.9 trillion in new spending is a ‘cut’, which is why Washington has a spending problem. That’s like a guy who makes $50k asking for a raise to $65k. His boss gives him $55k. The guy then claims his pay was cut $10k.” —Ari Fleischer

For the record: “The incessant effort to cancel books — and people — is an utterly futile attempt to fabricate a world that is not grounded in reality. You cannot make a society more moral by force. And if you could, by what, or whose, standard would such coercive strong-arming be based?” —Darrell B. Harrison

Upright: “We’ve got to start teaching our young people moral values again. That starts with putting God and prayer back in our schools.” —Senator Tommy Tuberville

Sad but true: “It should be more shocking to you when a politician turns out to be decent than it is when he turns out to be a scumbag.” —Kyle Mann

Say that again. Slowly. “Covid-19: The U.S. Is Edging Toward Normal, Alarming Some Officials.” —The New York Times (As we’ve noted on numerous occasions, the Democrat-Leftmedia complex wants us to live in perpetual fear.)

Pick a lane: “Why is it so hard for men accused of sexual harassment to just say, ‘I am sorry for the hurt I’ve caused. I’m willing to listen. I want to grow. I’m 100% committed to being a part of the solution.’ Instead, they just gaslight and try to discredit the women. It’s such bulls—t.” —Alyssa Milano, who wrote a guest column on April 29, 2020, explaining why she still supports Joe Biden despite accusations from Tara Reade

Non compos mentis: “The Republican playbook is, ‘Let’s hope that this goes away, and let’s not really go into it.’ … We should use the Republican playbook [on Andrew Cuomo] because the Democrats do the opposite.” —"The View" co-host Joy Behar

And last… “There is not a single person who lived 80 years ago who did not have views that our culture would find objectionable today. Not one. Either we cancel everyone who committed the crime of being born in the 20th century or earlier, or we stop this madness and get some perspective.” —Matt Walsh
