We could use a President who was, like, “OK. Everybody turn in all your guns tomorrow by 5 p.m. After that, if I catch you with a gun then I’m sending SEAL Team Six to your house with a recent Facebook picture of you and those tanks that shoot fire that we haven’t used since Waco — Ummm — I mean since World War II. — W. Kamau Bell

Cruz is somehow beginning to get some momentum from Iowa and elsewhere. And so people are either mimicking him, which Rubio is doing a little by adopting some of the dark and satanic tones that Cruz has… — David Brooks

A Williamsburg establishment started selling a $100 edible 24-karat-gold-covered doughnut dunked in Cristal-infused icing. It’s $1,000 for a dozen and it’s not even in Manhattan. — Emily Jane Fox

We’re going to win every state if Bernie Sanders is the nominee. — John Kasich

The disconnect between the governed and the political class is wider, larger, deeper than I have ever seen it. The lack of commonality, the lack of mutual goals, the lack of the elected political class understanding the frame of mind of a majority of the American people. I’ve never seen people elected and serving in office as out of touch with the pulse of the country in my life. Now, I don’t know about before I was alive. I’m sure there have been other times. Throw the Civil War out. I mean, that’s its own unique circumstance, and you can argue that nothing since has ever been that dire. But throw that out. After we resume states of normalcy here, I have never seen the people elected to serve be so out of touch and so unaware, stymied, surprised by the attitudes and the things that are important to the people in the country. Add to it, when the elected class, the political class, find out what is really important to the people who’ve elected them, they scoff at it and they pooh-pooh it! — Rush Limbaugh

You know what a gun-free zone is to a sicko? That’s bait. — Donald Trump

The annual State of the Union pageant is a hideous, dispiriting, ugly, monotonous, un-American, un-republican, anti-democratic, dreary, backward, monarchical, retch-inducing, depressing, shameful, crypto-imperial display of official self-aggrandizement and piteous toadying, a black Mass during which every unholy order of teacup totalitarian and cringing courtier gathers under the towering dome of a faux-Roman temple to listen to a speech with no content given by a man with no content, to rise and to be seated as is called for by the order of worship — it is a wonder they have not started genuflecting — with one wretched representative of their number squirreled away in some well-upholstered Washington hidey-hole in order to preserve the illusion that those gathered constitute a special class of humanity without whom we could not live.

It’s the most nauseating display in American public life — and I write that as someone who has just returned from a pornographers’ convention. — Kevin Williamson
