Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Erick Erickson, Marco Rubio, Dan Crenshaw, and more.

Insight: “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetuate it.” —Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)

“That Marjorie [Taylor Greene] scoffed at the notion of supporting anti-censorship legislation is indicative of her true intent: to remain a victim. She doesn’t want solutions and she doesn’t care if you get censored. She just wants to be a victim so she can keep asking you for campaign donations. It’s a scam.” —Congressman Dan Crenshaw regarding MTG after she said his legislative efforts to remove social media protection were “toothless”

“I don’t think January 6th is going to help the Democrats like the media seems to think it will. But there is a genuine obsession in the press about it. It was a bad day, but it doesn’t outweigh crime, inflation, COVID, school closures, etc. for voters.” —Erick Erickson

“Record numbers testing positive for a sore throat isn’t a crisis. And people in the hospital for car accidents testing positive isn’t a surge. The real crisis is the irrational hysteria which has people with no symptoms waiting hours for a test or missing work for 10 days.” —Senator Marco Rubio

“If I had a dollar for every lockdown politician who decided to escape to Florida over the last two years, I’d be a pretty doggone wealthy man.” —Governor Ron DeSantis

“It’s harder to get into some restaurants in New York than it is to vote.” —Kevin Sorbo

A trip down memory lane I: “Folks who want to see [the filibuster] change want to eliminate one of the procedural mechanisms designed for the express purpose of guaranteeing individual rights, and they also as a consequence would undermine the protections of the minority point of view in the heat of majority excess.” —then-Senator Joe Biden, May 23, 2005

A trip down memory lane II: “The legislative filibuster … is the most important distinction between the Senate and the House. Without the 60-vote threshold for legislation, the Senate becomes a majoritarian institution like the House.” —Senator Chuck Schumer, April 7, 2017

And last… “The last two years may have sucked, but I’m willing to bet you’d rather be here than anywhere else. In 2022, America will still be the greatest place on earth.” —Dan Crenshaw
