More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 113

"Mama Bear shakes up the establishment with her roar" Edition
"Joe Miller, a 43-year-old Yale-educated lawyer, West Point graduate and Gulf War veteran, was a little-known Fairbanks attorney before he was endorsed by Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Express... The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate, who knows a little about shaking up the establishment, has become a political power, riding and leading a wave of political discontent with the country's current direction that manifested itself last Saturday at Glenn Beck's "Restore Honor" rally on the National Mall. Palin is woman, hear her roar."
Metamorf at Metamorphoses:
"Sometimes you have to pick a side, and right now Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, and all are preferable in my mind to the smug political, academic, media, and cultural elites that have dominated the scene too long."
Lloyd Marcus :
"I am a black man alerting my fellow Americans about a tremendous evil which is going on in our great country. Despite the wonderful racial gains we have made in terms of coming together — not as hyphenated Americans, but as Americans — black civil rights dinosaurs and their liberal white guilt-ridden sycophants campaign to 'Keep Hate Alive.' The Black Civil Rights Mafia long ago abandoned MLK’s dream of a day when all Americans would be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. America’s 'Black Mob' makes everything about skin color... While Black America is truly being betrayed and abused by the Black Civil Rights Mafia, most blacks erroneously believe their enemies are Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and the Tea Parties. Please allow me to set the record straight. Beck and the Tea Party patriots are far greater stewards of MLK’s dream than the 'sold out' Black Mob."
Jay Tea at Wizbang:
"Who will be the candidate that the Tea Party will rally behind? Who will be the right's Barack Obama? It's way too early to tell -- but there's one person right now who seems to fit the mold to a T... Who else could it be but Mama Grizzly herself, Sarah Palin?"
Guy at the Right Place:
"The biggest cheer and response from the huge crowd was given to Sarah Palin. Although she stayed on message with the spiritual revival theme established by Glenn Beck, she drew a huge response when she said (paraphrasing her statement) 'there are those that would like to transform America but we are here to restore America.' All the awards and spiritual revival aside, there is no doubt in my mind that the underlying theme for those in attendance was right in line with Palin's comment... we didn't travel to D.C. by the hundreds of thousands, endure 90 degree heat, to attend a revival meeting... we were there to restore our Republic to its fundamental culture of individual liberty, limited government and free markets driven by a meritocracy! The religion theme is an excellent mortar to cement our values together and add strength through moral courage and individual integrity."
Shushannah Walshe via Twitter:
"I know that a source made it up. There are a lot of ppl in AK w axes to grind. I'm far from the only journo panning [the Gross hatchet job on Gov. Palin]."
Coco Rico at Coconut Cowboy:
"Let me get this straight: a gay guy at Vanity Fair writes a nasty, gossipy, trash-filled attack on Sarah Palin. She responds -- not specifically to this piece but to a whole bunch of them -- by defending herself and denouncing 'limp,' 'impotent', 'gutless' reporters. She names no names but makes it clear she dislikes craven, cowardly backstabbing behavior -- behavior often coded as 'unmanly' because gentlemen, once upon a time, were supposed to be respectful and above-board when accusing others of things. And now the same people who goaded this gay writer into being 'unmanly' are calling Sarah Palin a gay-baiter."
Jim Putnam at The Coltons Point Times:
"Sarah Palin bashing is nothing new for... Vanity Fair Editor in Chief Graydon Carter and writer Michael Joseph Gross..."
Hairy Beast at Constitution Club:
"And so, in order to defeat the GOP... the libs were willing to jettison some of their core beliefs in service of the greater good. Declare a war 'lost'? Ok. Oppose a winning war strategy? Ok. Voter Fraud via ACORN? Ok. Hijack an election via recount in Minnesota? Ok. Sexist smears against Hillary and Sarah Palin? Ok. Attack the children of your opponent? Ok. Out Gays? Ok. Lie, cheat? Ok, ok, ok…"
Vérité at Constitution Club:
"Sometimes I wonder why conservatives or Christians (much less those who identify with both groups) continue to be surprised by their treatment by the secular and non-Christian world. If we would believe what the Bible says, this is to be expected... Many liberals may be well-intentioned; however, they are products of generations of progressivist propagandizing... making them categorically unable to extend us the generosity of spirit necessary to return rank-and-file conservatives the same courtesy... To them, we are either neo-nazis, war hawks, greedy business owners, naïve religious fundamentalists, or some combination of those things. Sarah Palin is their favorite villain. From their internalized, secular-humanist perspective, our stingy mistrust of government is the closest thing they can understand to evil. That so many of us espouse the faith of our founders just makes matters worse... Now if we represented a minority religious perspective such as Buddhism or Islam, that’d be a god of a different color!"
Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters:
"It truly is fascinating the left and their media minions continue to bash Limbaugh, Beck, and Palin. After all, with the possible exceptions of Obama and the Clintons, there aren't any other liberal political figures in this nation that come close to the popularity and visibility of these three conservatives."
Ric Locke at Ric's Rulez:
"Not only do the violent acts invariably come from Lefties of one stripe or another, they invariably come from loner leftoids — guys like Ted Kacynski and James Jae Lee, who brood over their tracts in lonely silence. 'Wingnuts' have friends, and friends don’t let friends get out of hand that way... If you want somebody killed or something blown up, you have no shortage of anonymous brave souls advocating the assassination of Bush, Cheney, or Sarah Palin, or destroying the HQ of 'Faux News' with enough TNT to form a mushroom cloud. The diaries and comments at Kos’s place alone should provide you with enough recruits to form a battalion of bombers and a brigade of assassins."
Laura Ingraham channeling the president in The Obama Diaries:
"Hell, doesn’t Palin have anything better to do than criticize me? Shouldn’t she be back home shooting some endangered wolf species from a helicopter?"
The Great White Shank at GoodBoysNation:
"One of the key elements to look for in the November mid-terms is the emergence of conservative women as a political force to be reckoned with... What Sarah Palin did as a vice-presidential candidate... and is doing as a free-thinking, Beltway-bashing conservative activist is redefining what it means to be a female in American politics and a modern feminist in 21st century American culture... The ’60s were forty years [ago]; it’s time for new voices with new perspectives on the role of women in God’s creation, American culture, American politics, and the rapidly-changing world we live in today. And given the kind of crap Sarah Palin is still having to deal with, this time can’t come soon enough."
Jim Milliot at Publishers Weekly:
"Sarah Palin's Going Rogue played an important role in turning around the sales fortunes at [HarperCollins]."
