QOTD: "The really, really important thing about the Supreme Court choice is that Hillary Clinton is not the one making it. That is so big! That is so huge compared to what everybody thought was going to happen on Election Day 2016. And there are going to be more opportunities for Trump to get more good judges on this court. And that’s going to have a multi-decade impact on this country, the way things are currently structured.

The Democrats have not had this little power, as defined by seats held, elected seats held, since the 1920s. The primary obstacle people have in seeing a robust pendulum switching back to the right direction is the daily presentation of what’s called news in the media. I know I sound a little bit like a broken record on this. But it happens to be the case.

And I again offer you a suggestion: Stop watching it for a week, just as a test. Stop watching TV. Go where you want to go to inform yourself. I’m not saying stop informing yourself. I’m saying stop watching cable news. Maybe watch a little Fox, but stop watching CNN, and don’t read the New York Times, the Washington Post. You know the things to avoid. Find other ways to inform yourself. Just listen to this program, basically.

And after a week you will feel entirely different about the country and the direction things are going. Because you’re not gonna be hit daily with this never-ending drumbeat of chaos, pessimism, negativism, and so forth. And it will make a difference." --Rush Limbaugh
