More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 129

"Progressive Sarahphobia" Edition...

RD Pierini at Save R Nation:
"It was great reading the Left Wing Media’s response to her appearance in Palm Beach. With sweaty palms, the left-wing media pecked out article after article covering the event and filled their columns with innuendoes and not so veiled negative comments... The Liberal/Progressives share a gut wrenching fear of Sarah and her ability to connect with people. In spite of their savage smear campaign against her for over two years, she has a commanding presence on the national scene."
MacRanger at Macsmind:
"She was more than charming, she was absolutely presidential... But let’s put the speculation to rest. Sarah Palin IS running for President in 2012."
Mark Whittington at Associated Content:
"At a reception and dinner attended by fifty conservative movers and shakers, Sarah Palin implicitly compared herself to President Ronald Reagan. At the same time she suggested that she is mulling a Presidential run in 2012... The attendees of the reception and the dinner have pronounced themselves very impressed with Sarah Palin. Many actually pronounced themselves ready to support a Palin run for the Presidency. If that happens, a far left, first African American President in history could be followed and repudiated by a conservative, first female American President in history."
John at Verum Serum:
"So do references to hijacking and hand to hand combat count as an 'appeal to violence?' If not, then is Paul Krugman willing to admit that Palin’s 'reload' reference was no more offensive? I await his concession on the point."
Pat Austin at And So It Goes In Shreveport:
"I'm ready to get back to 'hand to hand combat' as Obama said [Thursday]. Where's the outrage on THAT one? When Sarah Palin suggested that the Tea Party not retreat, but reload, CNN accused her of 'inciting violence.' Where's the outrage? You can ignore the Joe Biden comment about 'strangling' Republicans because, well, it's Joe Biden, and anyone can take a joke, right? I mean, he was joking, wasn't he? CNN accused Palin of 'inciting violence' with her 'don't retreat, reload' comment, but it's okay now to say if Republicans take the majority in November there will be 'hand to hand combat' on Captiol Hill? Okay. Double standards in the media - alive and well."
myiq2xu at The Confluence:
"Fauxgressives can post rants about the sexism inherent in a comment criticizing the clothing worn by Michelle Obama while at the same time wearing a shirt that says 'Sarah Palin is a c***' and not feel the slightest twinge of cognitive dissonance."
Lori Ziganto at
"The ever bitter and idiotic Eleanor Clift called Sarah Palin 'Pat Buchanan in drag'. Salon said Sarah Palin 'may be a lady, but she ain’t no woman.' Patricia Ireland of the National Organization of Women... told Democrats to vote only for 'authentic' female political candidates. And Naomi Wolf once said that Jeane Kilpatrick was 'uninflected by the experiences of the female body.' To the Left, we are either not real women or we are whores, conservative porn, or sex objects with no brains because a woman can’t possibly have both. The response to the Citzen’s United movie about conservative women, 'Fire From the Heartland,' put that on full and disgusting display. Enough. We won’t take it lying down, despite the fact that Jerry Brown apparently believes we spend all our time on our backs."
"Less than 24 hours after the audio of Jerry Brown and his associate calling Meg Whitman a 'whore' leaked out, NOW endorsed Brown for California governor... Yes, this is the same NOW who doesn’t say a word about left winger nuts calling Sarah Palin crazy, or Christine O’Donnell a witdh, or the various things said about Michele Bachmann."
Carol Platt Liebau at
"The day after he (or a member of his staff) is caught on tape calling Meg Whitman a whore, Jerry Brown has announced the endorsement of the National Organization of Women (NOW). You know, it's fashionable in feminist circles to sit around bemoaning the fact that few young women want to identify themselves as feminists. Wanna know why? This kind of hypocrisy is the reason why. It's OK with NOW, supposedly an organization devoted to the equal and respectful treatment of women, for Jerry Brown to call his opponent -- an accomplished woman, and more importantly, any woman -- a 'whore.' It's OK with NOW for Bill Clinton to engage in sexual harassment of an intern in The White House, and possibly worse in his pre-presidential days. It's OK with NOW to allow Sarah Palin to be denigrated in the cheapest, lowest and most sexist ways. NOW has nothing to do with women's rights, or the proper treatment of women. They are simply shills for abortion and big government."

"You know, whatever Sarah decides to do is up to Sarah. She will be good at whatever she chooses to do."
Jedediah Bila at Human Events:
"We’ve heard members of the media elite express how great Sarah Palin is -- while citing a preliminary disclaimer that they wouldn’t support her for President. Her folksy accent, down-to-earth approach, and willingness to challenge the GOP machine have scared the heck out of stuck-up elitists who seem to care more about the preservation of their political futures than the betterment of our country... America already knows what the height of political elitism looks like on the Left. He’s sitting in the White House. It’s time we start expecting more from the Right. And if some in the conservative elite have a problem with courageous, regular Americans just like you and me stepping up to the plate to try to save this country, then maybe it’s time for them to hit the road, too."
ByronYork via Twitter:
"Number of times the word 'Palin' spoken this week on Parker-Spitzer: 50. (Plus 3 'mama grizzlies') Number of 'Palins' on O'Reilly: 0."
Greta Van Susteren at Greta Wire:
"For the last few weeks I have seen so many in the media making fun of Christine O'Donnell for saying some goofy things years and years ago. (I can only imagine what some of the high and mighty media did and said in high school.....) I watched the same with Governor (yes, that is Governor) Sarah Palin and before that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (remember all the unkind and nasty things the media said about her when she was the First Lady?) It is not a party is a media group think clique thing. It is a bit high school - ish... When over a period time a bunch of journalists from multiple news organizations are all talking about the same topic, with the same views, and using the same words, and laughing thing is sure: none is getting off his ass (yes, ass) and doing real reporting. And worse? their clique - ish snickering is victimizing. It is an attempt to make less of a person. That is not reporting."
Diane Black in the Cookeville Times:
"I am honored to receive Governor Palin’s endorsement, and I certainly share her concerns with the disastrous health care reform legislation. As a nurse... I am alarmed by the recent law passed in Washington, and I am committed to fighting for its repeal and pushing for common-sense reforms that address the true needs of patients and providers."
Morgan Freeberg at RightNetwork:
"Nobody but nobody, it seems, feels lukewarm about Palin. That her ideas possess currency is undeniable... These are dangerous ideas. Because they just might do what they're supposed to do and fix more problems than they create. This is a dangerous woman. She is committed to ideas like these. Come what may, you will not see her supporting their opposites. And she can fill up a stadium, bookstore or rental hall without paying people to be there. It's a bad, bad combination, depending, that is, on who you are and what you're trying to do."
