Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Ben Sasse, Ron DeSantis, Eric Adams, and more.


“Man prefers to believe what he prefers to be true.” —Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626)

Re: The Left

“The president of the United States called half the country a bunch of racist bigots. … He doesn’t believe that. This was a senile comment of a man who read whatever was loaded into his teleprompter. … If Joe Biden really believes that Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema are bigots, why hasn’t he called for them to be kicked out of his party? If they’re as racist as Bull Connor and Jefferson Davis, why does Joe Biden want them in his party?” —Senator Ben Sasse

“According to President Joe Biden, Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona is now on the side of George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Confederate leader Jefferson Davis. … Such is the absurdity of the position Biden and Democrat leaders have put themselves in. By staking their midterm election prospects on the passage of a ‘voting rights’ bill no one asked for and that has no chance of passing the Senate, they have been reduced to hurling juvenile insults and spinning abject lies to make their case for reshaping America’s elections.” —John Daniel Davidson

“The medical mandate for the nurses and the doctors — what they’re trying to do is absolutely insane. … In other states they have fired nurses for not having vaxxed, even though most of them have natural immunity. So they fire them, but now they’re short-handed. So what are they doing? They are bringing back on the job vaccinated nurses who are currently COVID-positive. So if you’re unvaccinated, naturally immune, and uninfected, they fire you. But if you’re COVID-positive and vaxxed … they are going back on the job. And it just shows you, that … mandate is absolutely insane.” —Florida Governor Ron DeSantis

Intraparty Squabbles

“Hero: a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. Traitor: a person who betrays a friend, country, principle, etc. John Lewis is a hero, you [Kyrsten Sinema] are a traitor to his legacy, your constituents and our democracy.” —Congressman Jamaal Bowman

“I am working closely with the president of the [United Federation of Teachers]. … This is not Chicago, this is New York, where we are communicating with each other because we’re both emotionally intelligent and we can resolve this.” —New York City Mayor Eric Adams

The BIG Lie

“I come from the state of Georgia, which is ground zero these days for voter suppression.” —Senator Raphael Warnock

And Last…

“Today’s Democrat Party wants you to show a vax card in order to eat at a restaurant. But they don’t want you to show an ID Card in order to vote.” —House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy
