Thursday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Robert Garcia, Cori Bush, Pete Buttigieg, and more.

Non Compos Mentis

“I rise to commemorate the start of Pride Month by honoring the one and only queen of drag, RuPaul — an artist, a philanthropist, and a barrier-breaker. RuPaul Charles has become an American phenomenon and an icon. Nobody has more charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent than RuPaul Charles.” —Congressman Robert Garcia (D-CA)

Race Bait

“When Republicans talk about election integrity, they’re really talking about voter suppression. They’re talking about carrying on the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow by actively disenfranchising black and brown communities.” —Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-MO)

The BIG Lies

“We have been working to reduce the deficit, which is the first step in reducing the debt.” —Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg

“We’re focused on securing our border.” —Joe Biden

Political Futures

“[Mike] Pence, who this week formally becomes a candidate for the 2024 Republican nomination, is in a nearly impossible situation. Or maybe a totally impossible situation. And it all traces back to his four years with President Donald Trump in the White House — the period that should have set him up for a run for the presidency himself. The short version of the situation is this: Mike Pence is both running on and running away from his record in the years 2017 to 2021. … In any other time, Pence would be a natural presidential candidate. In today’s historically weird political world, his candidacy is deeply troubled even as it begins.” —Byron York

“I would advise … all the candidates, including Donald Trump, to aim their fire and resources not at each other, but at what the left and Biden’s third term of the Obama presidency are doing to America and how they plan to correct it.” —Gary Bauer

For the Record

“Mike Pence is such a decent guy … that he doesn’t spend time alone with any woman who’s not his wife — to avoid even the appearance of anything wrong. The same media that caterwauls about Trump’s treatment of women mocks and attacks Pence for honoring them.” —Nate Jackson

“It is absolutely crazy that the COVID-hysterical, fake Russia collusion hoaxers at CNN ran out their new boss because he tried to make them mildly care about real news instead of Democrat narratives. Just crazy. Corporate media simply can’t be fixed, sadly.” —Mollie Hemingway

“China is a bully. No amount of apologizing, capitulating, or promises are going to temper its aggression on the world stage. China respects strength, and that is not what the U.S. is displaying under this administration.” —Emmy Griffin
