Just a few recent quotes that caught my attention.

"That's possible."

— Betsy DeVos, responding to a question at her confirmation hearing as to whether she and her family had donated as much as $200 million to the Republican party.

"the leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake"

— Donald Trump, during that press conference yesterday.

"I'm only a small time little toad."

— Regina Doherty, Government Chief Whip, on RTE's Drivetime on Tuesday during a defence of Taoiseach Enda Kenny's mea culpa in the Dail earlier that day. The toad comment is at about 4:23.

"making seafood-related DNS requests every 15 minutes"

— The Internet Of Things That Really Shouldn't Be Connected To The Internet, University Edition

And a bonus, and most relevant, classic.

As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

— H.L. Mencken, Baltimore Evening Sun, 26 July 1920
