From Guy Benson at Townhall.com:
“Now that Kavanaugh has been approved, I do not feel happiness. I’m still appalled by everything that just transpired. I’m fearful about the zero-sum, say-anything nature of our politics. I’m furious at an activist media that couldn’t disguise its rooting interests, evidenced by repeated abandonments of core journalistic practices.”
Furious is good. Keep that fury, everybody: feed it, nurture it, let it grow and grow, and feel it every time you cast your vote whether now, in November 2018; in the presidential elections of November 2020, or in every poll to come.
On the roots of crime, this time in Greece:
“If I were in charge, I’d arrest every Albanian in Greece and deport them. Violent crime would disappear overnight, but then I’m not in charge and PC is.” — Taki

“Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel has come up with a great way to save lives — he just announced he won’t seek re-election. ” — Mark Simone
It says something that I, an admitted lover of Chicago, have had several second thoughts about visiting the place during the Emanuel Years because of safety concerns.
From NeverTrumper Jonas Goldberg (proving that a stopped clock can be correct at least once):
“But [Trump] isn’t Hitler, for any number of reasons, the most important of which is that Americans aren’t Nazis. We’re not even Germans. Hitler’s rule was possible because there was a market demand for a Hitler and a wider tolerance for a Hitler.”
And Trump’s election came about because there was a market demand for a Trump and a wider tolerance for a Trump. There, however, the similarity ends (to the anguish of the Left).
Homosexuals, other sexual deviants, Jews and gypsies haven’t been rounded up and put in concentration camps [no comment]; there have been no public book burnings (except, paradoxically, by the Left, both literally and figuratively); Trump hasn’t advocated a policy of Mexikanerrein (only a wall to end invasion of same); and no matter how appealing the action may seem to some of us, Trump hasn’t made plans to annex
the Sudetenland Alberta or invade Poland Baja California.
In fact, the only outcomes of Trump’s administration that are remotely Hitler-like are the soaring growth of the economy and the virtual elimination of unemployment — and those outcomes, I think we can all agree, are not malevolent (except to the Left, who like a seething mass of the unemployed to whom they can offer free stuff).
Not that it matters. To the American Left, all Republicans are Nazis and all Republican leaders (whether moderates like the Bushes or conservatives like Pence and Goldwater) are Literally Hitler. The accuracy of their labeling is irrelevant, as long as they can create a bogeyman that will fire up their base of rabid Commie crapweasels.
“Every time identity politics has been used by any faction in human history for any reason violence eventually follows. No matter how detailed and intricate the justification, no matter how reasonable it can be made to sound as a way to correct for unequal social conditions and historical injustice, it always ends in the same foul basement of mutual fear, loathing, and depravity.” — William Ray

From Jazz Shaw at Hot Air:
“This is the stuff that gives senior Democratic Party leaders nightmares. Their voters came withing spitting distance of nominating a card-carrying socialist last time around and it divided the party in two. Without the superdelegates acting as the adult monitors in the room, who might they nominate next? A member of Antifa?”
We can only hope.
