Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Dennis Prager, Anthony Fauci, AOC, and more.

Insight: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” —Lord Acton (1834-1902)

Re: The Left: “Biden says what the states are doing [with voting integrity] is ‘pernicious.’ No, what is pernicious are the outrageous lies that he and other liberals are spreading about commonsense election reforms sponsored by state legislators who are trying their best to protect the integrity of the franchise for all Americans.” —Hans von Spakovsky

For the record: “A man who identifies as a woman yet retains male genitalia may have a legal right, but not a moral right, to display those genitalia in front of women. A man who identifies as a man and exposes himself to a woman, let alone to a group of women and girls, is deemed sick and arrested. But, according to the left, a man who says he is a woman and does the exact same thing — with the exact same disturbing effect on women, let alone girls — is to be given universal support. In fact, however, this individual is the apotheosis of narcissism. And is still a man: As one woman pointed out to me, his engaging in such behavior is demonstrative proof that he is still a man (one with an exhibitionist streak). Women don’t expose themselves like that.” —Dennis Prager

Observations: “Readers may be amazed that we have to continue to expand Medicare, Medicaid, ‘Obamacare’ subsidies and the like because 12 years ago, we were told that the trillion-dollar Affordable Care Act was going to provide universal coverage for everyone. But we keep spending hundreds of billions of tax dollars, and all we hear is how many millions of people continue to lack health care coverage. Maybe that is because all the money the authorities spend on health care makes the whole system way more expensive.” —Stephen Moore

A blind squirrel finds a nut: “This is a mistake. They shouldn’t do this.” —New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio regarding Ben & Jerry’s, which revealed on Tuesday: “We believe it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. … We have informed our licensee that we will not renew the license agreement when it expires at the end of next year.”

The BIG Lie: “I have never lied, certainly not before Congress. Case closed.” —Dr. Anthony Fauci

Braying jenny: “There are conservative news outlets who are creating irresponsible content.” —White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield (“Now imagine Kayleigh McEnany saying this about liberal news outlets.” —Jim Treacher)

Non compos mentis: “[Governor Ron DeSantis] is complicit in the COVID deaths of 38,395 Floridians.” —The Lincoln Project (Governor Andrew Cuomo was unavailable for comment…)

Hot air: “Our climate crisis today requires a peaceful but wartime-scale mobilization.” —Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

And last… “Imagine if 50 GOP state reps skipped work, drank beer on a private jet while ignoring federal mask mandates, held a press conference to spread flagrant lies that’ve been debunked, and then infected the Speaker’s Office and White House with COVID. Just imagine.” —Congressman Dan Crenshaw
