Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Gene Marks, Joe Biden, Jackie Calmes, and more.

Insight: “Truth never damages a cause that is just.” —Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948)

“GOP message for 2022: More people have died of COVID under Biden than Trump; Thanksgiving costs are at an all-time high; gas prices are at an all-time high; parents are treated as domestic terrorists for being involved in their children’s learning. Good luck, Democrats.” —Erick Erickson

“Life has a funny way of coming back around. The Left injected themselves where they didn’t belong — in sports — by putting pressure on companies to punish the city of Atlanta and the state of Georgia because they didn’t like a bill put forth by a Republican governor. And now, six months later, all eyes will be on the states of Texas and Georgia as Major League Baseball crowns their 2021 World Series champion. If you listen closely, you can hear the Left screaming in anguish.” —Joe Morgan

“The government would like us to believe that higher prices are just a short-term bump caused by COVID-related supply chain issues. But it’s not just that. And it’s certainly not a passing bump. People running businesses know this. … That’s because they don’t pay attention to the broad-based inflation numbers that the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases. Instead, they look at the actual costs of the actual materials and labor they are spending to make and then deliver their actual products. And those very specific costs have skyrocketed well beyond the generalized rates released by the government that the media reports. … The inflation numbers that we’re reading in the major media are significantly understated. Prices are actually higher than the government wants us to know. And they’re going to continue to increase.” —Gene Marks

Evader-in-chief: “When you’re president … they [the media] get to ask you all kinds of questions and you try to figure out how you’re gonna avoid answering them sometimes.” —Joe Biden talking to children

Leftmedia, Exhibit A: “For years it was easy to cover ‘both sides’ — Republicans and Democrats — as equally worthy, and blameworthy, partners in democracy. … Now, when reporters or pundits use the words ‘both sides’ in regard to some political problem, I stop reading or listening. … Democrats can’t be expected to deal with [Republicans] like they’re on the level. Nor should journalists cover them as if they are.” —Los Angeles Times columnist Jackie Calmes

Race bait: “This idea of intellectual debate and rigor as the pinnacle of intellectualism comes from a world in which white men dominated.” —Williams College geosciences professor Phoebe A. Cohen

And last… “The Right thinks pornography and critical race theory should be barred from schools. The Left thinks Dr. Seuss should be barred from schools.” —Ben Shapiro
