QotD? VOte for the best!

First, the serious stuff:

This escalation of {eastern Ukraine} violence must stop. - UN Ambassador Nikki Haley

Instead of being thankful to the United States for these agreements, Iran is now feeling emboldened. As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice.
- National Security Advisor Michael Flynn (OK, this is 2 days old)

OZ Professor Steve Kates (real Australian)

That Trump now thinks of [Aussie PM] Malcolm as a flea-weight no-account fool only means he has the same assessment of the PM as the rest of us.

Now for some fun: the fake newschnado, the best part of Trumpism, IMO, is a gift that is cranking out the humor ...some the best kind, right from the unwashed mouths of us plebes on main street.

From the comments page at PL (various threads):

{seeing Schumer's tearful laments} Winning is such fun. I had forgotten how much fun it can be.
[Robert] Reich is schilling for the fourth Reich
they haven't been the "mainstream media" for a long time. They are the Fake News Media, or the Walking Dead Media might even be more accurate.

I'm just warming up,
Utah’s venerable Orrin Hatch engineered a rule change to overcome the Democrats’ [no show] maneuver in his committee. He even provided the quote of the week in response to the FOX News anchor who asked him what the Democrats’ temporary disappearance says. Senator Hatch drily commented:

“It says they’re a bunch of juvenile idiots is what it says.”

But I think this one may get the prize; Paul Mirengoff takes a break from scoffing at Trump to look east:
From a PL article on the screwy twists taking place with a new 3rd party candidate Emmanuel Macron joining the fray for France:

I guess he wants to make France great again. It’s been a while.

The Aussie professor gets my vote for number 1 QOTD. "...flea-weight no-account fool..."

We could benefit from such erudite ad hominem in this hemisphere as well. It would be an improvement in civility.
