More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 138

"They just can't help themselves" Edition

Liz at Half-Baked Sourdough:
"They just can’t help themselves… They just can’t stop trying to use the Alinsky rules against their opponents, even though they see that the Right is onto their tactics. They can’t seem to stop even when they fail, time after time. They can’t stop using the same old 'playbook' with the same old moves, day in and day out... First, it was Joe the plumber. Then it was Rush Limbaugh. Then it was Sarah Palin. Then Rush again. Then it was John Boehner. Now, it’s Christine O’Donnell. Time after time, this tactic has been trotted out, and it has failed them, but they just keep doing it over and over again."
Anonymouse at Desperate Democrats:
"We, the DNC, sent over two dozen lawyers to Wasilla to get dirt on Sarah Palin and her family. Then we filed dozens of ethics lawsuits against her. They were all dismissed. Now we are even more desperate!"
Becky Yeh at One News Now:
"California Senate candidate Carly Fiorina (R) voiced Monday that Alaska's former governor is qualified to be president of the United States. The Republican was endorsed by Palin earlier this year... Reverend Lou Sheldon, chairman of the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC), believes Fiorina chose to honor Palin because she realizes the success of her career. 'She likes Sarah because Sarah is a very, very sincere woman who has raised her family to the best of her ability, and [Fiorina] thinks that she's gotten a very bad rap because of her daughter's teenage pregnancy,' Sheldon suggests. He does not think the California candidate showed her support for Palin in order to win conservative votes, but he decides she truly respects the politician."
Merv Benson at PrairiePundit:
"The Sarah Palin effect is... hurting Democrats who have ridiculed her concerns. Women can tell when they are being dissed."
Jim Putnam at The Coltons Point Times:
"Palin and the Tea Party have written a new chapter in American political history... There has simply been nothing like it the past century in America... Sarah Palin and others give a face and a voice to the millions of disgruntled, disappointed, disgusted and determined citizens who have had enough government, deficit spending, increasing national debt and political double talk. Come November 3 we may find out just how much of an impact the silent voices of frustrated Americans might have earned."
Alan Adamson at Silly Little Country:
"While I am an atheist revolted at creationism, I feel much happier watching Sarah Palin on DWTS watching her daughter dance, than any scene I have ever watched featuring the current President."
Scarlet, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln publication:
"Mitchell Laski has experienced the entire research process while working with assistant professor of psychology Sarah Gervais... Gervais and Laski previously studied women in high-power positions in politics. The first year of Laski’s UCARE project, they studied perceptions of politicians like Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin. In their research they found that Clinton was seen as more masculine than Palin, while Palin was viewed as more family-oriented than politically-oriented."
Mark Burnett via
"Todd is like Captain America. This guy, this guy is super tough. He can actually do it all."
Jeffrey Lord at The American Spectator:
"Politico has stepped in it over an allegation that Sarah Palin backed out of an interview with talk radio’s Mark Levin. Says Levin: 'This is a flat out lie. Sarah Palin never backed out of any interview with me. Period.' He wants a retraction from reporter Jonathan Martin, who never contacted him for confirmation. Will he get one? Stay tuned as the liberal media anti-Palin bandwagon keeps rolling, making it up as it goes along."
Melissa Clouthier at Liberty Pundits:
"Why on earth should Sarah Palin or Christine O’Donnell or any of the Republicans give the media who hate them the ratings and money that comes with an appearance?"
Dan Riehl at Riehl World View:
"What Juan Williams did is very similar to why the Left hates Sarah Palin, other conservative women and conservative homosexuals. He played against the progressive stereotype of himself, revealing a balanced and too candid humanity within... Well, if Juan Williams is impacted by the behavior of Muslims, then progressives - and NPR is that, can't lecture white America that their concerns are based on hate, religious intolerance, bigotry or xenophobia. Juan Williams didn't drop his mask and reveal any Islamophobia... What he did was rip the mask off the tactics NPR and other progressives, including the liberal media, use to lecture America and prevent an honest discussion of the threat from Islam. He was, only in that sense, not fired for who he is, he was fired because of what NPR is - a public corporation in need of the majority of Americans agreeing to pull its plug."
FreeThinkerNY at Weasel Zippers:
"I love this woman! She knows how to fight…"
A.W.R. Hawkins at Human Events:
"Sarah Palin became governor of Alaska in 2006, and was thrust onto the national stage upon becoming John McCain’s vice presidential running mate in 2008. Since then, she has been maligned by liberal elites and establishment Republicans who are consternated by her increasing popularity. In their world, Palin is not supposed to be successful because she is not well educated (she went to school in flyover country: University of Idaho), she loves this country to a fault, and she actually believes the Constitution protects liberty by limiting the powers of the federal government. Oh yes, and she too loves Ronald Reagan."
MariaS at Dodo Can Spell:
"CNN and others are beginning to realize that they are looking at their next Prez so they better sit up and take notice."
"I’m not the first one to note this, but Governor Palin saved the Republican Party, and I think the country, in 2009 when she got in front of Democrats’ efforts to break the Tea Party movement from the GOP and splinter it off into a third party. Governor Palin saw the danger in this and instead directed the Tea Party to take over the GOP itself, which it is doing. This is hard work because the entrenched Cocktail Party elite likes where it is and [don’t] want to budge, but I’m confident Governor Palin’s efforts will succeed in the end — with the Tea Party movement carrying out reforms in the party that bring Republicans back to their conservative roots."
