Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Rich Lowry, Marco Rubio, Clay Travis, and more.

Insight: “No one is fit to be trusted with power. … No one. … Any man who has lived at all knows the follies and wickedness he’s capable of. … And if he does know it, he knows also that neither he nor any man ought to be allowed to decide a single human fate.” —C. P. Snow (1905-1980)

Observations: “It is galling to see the same people who sounded the klaxons about Russians undermining faith in the American system for years themselves spread — or at least casually accept — progressive narratives based on poisonous lies about our own country. The Russians are never going to stop running their information campaigns against the West, which date back to the Soviet Union. But they must occasionally be tempted to stand back in envy and awe at all that the U.S. promoters of woke narratives have been able to accomplish without them.” —Rich Lowry

For the record: “[Major League Baseball] ditched Atlanta for a less diverse city in a state that has more restrictive elections over a bill that has a plurality of support.” —Lisa Boothe

Upright: “Taking the All-Star game out of Georgia is an easy way to signal virtues without significant financial fallout. But speaking out against the Chinese Communist Party would involve a significant loss of revenue and being closed out of a lucrative market. I am under no illusion that Major League Baseball will sacrifice business revenue on behalf of its alleged corporate values. Similarly, I am under no illusion you intend to resign as a member from Augusta National Golf Club. To do so would require a personal sacrifice, as opposed to the woke corporate virtue signaling of moving the All Star Game from Atlanta.” —Senator Marco Rubio to MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred

A blind squirrel finds a nut: “Delta, Coke, Major League Baseball, they all work in China, a country now committing genocide. What standards do we hold people to?” —NY Times columnist David Brooks

He definitely has Trump Derangement Syndrome: “I think we’re all dealing with some post-Trump stress disorder.” —CNN’s Jim Acosta

And last… “How is it that every covid variant is immediately referred to by the geographic location of their country’s variant discovery, but it’s racist to refer to covid based on its origination in China? I don’t think Americans understand how much our country’s media is owned by China.” —Clay Travis
