More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 146

Special "Winning" Edition

Freedom Fighter at Joshuapundit:
"One person who has to be particularly gratified about [Tuesday] night's results is Governor Sarah Palin. While she had some high profile losses among her endorsees, her batting average overall was spectacular, coming in at around .680 so far... One big loss for Palin was Sharron Angle, and I'm convinced that Angle only lost because Harry Reid trucked... thousands of Democrat and union operatives into Nevada in a massive GOTV operation that the RNC was apparently unwilling to put in place for the Tea Party favorite, who was a relative amateur in a big race like this. Without a real ground came, she came up short..."
Just A Grunt at JammieWearingFool:
"I Want Sarah Filling Out My NCAA Tournament Brackets..."
Jennifer at Cubachi:
"If you want to know how great we have it with this past election, watch Sarah Palin’s new video, 'Together.' Featuring Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Allen West, Nikki Haley, Susana Martinez, Renee Ellmers, Sean Duffy, Tim Scott, and so many other stellar conservatives who are heading to Washington, DC to shake things up. This video is so uplifting, and is a reminder that together we can change things in Washington for the better... My goodness, we have never seen such a wipe out of liberalism in decades!"
Jeanette at The Right Angle:
"Right now, Sarah Palin is the only conservative who remained consistently relevant during two years of Nan-O-Reid hell. None of the 'smart' politicians so effectively engaged Obama or were targeted for retaliation by the Administration. Only Sarah Palin has been persistent and accurate."
Roaring Republican:
"Palin achieved three things on election night. First she built relationships and earned credibility amongst now elected Republicans and their supporters. Second she raised her image nationally by being serious and appearing focused. Her image had been tarnished by the mainstream media and pundits. She did exactly what she needed to raise her stature and create an opening to reinvent herself as a savvy politician. Finally, she was able to make the election about her while also appearing to make it about true policy and politics... 2010 was a relatively free massive ad for Palin politics. Something her competitors, despite their attempts, did not have. (Yes, I am largely looking at you Mitt Romney.)"
Ted Nugent in The Washington Times:
"The election of 2010 will go down in history as the Great Tea Party Massacre. The Founding Fathers would smile with pride at Sarah, Glenn and many other patriots."
Timothy Dalrymple at Patheos:
"Sarah Palin... helped shape the narrative in many elections, and Hillary Clinton... is looking more and more like the Democrat who should have been President... Finally, attacks on the basis of religion were flying fast and furious over the course of recent months, against Rand Paul, Christine O’Donnell, Sharron Angle, Carly Fiorina, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Nikki Haley, and…well, it looks as though all of them were Christian conservatives, doesn’t it? Hmm. Many folks on the Left want religion — and especially conservative Christian religion — out of the public square."
Lloyd Marcus at American Thinker Blog:
"The American Tea Party Movement is the biggest winner of Tuesday's election... 15 days ago we held our launch rally in Reno, NV. Sarah Palin was our keynote speaker for that rally. Palin appearances are electric. Her impact on the audiences is amazing. The people love her."
Teri O'Brien at Illinois Review:
"If a single candidate who received the slightest nod of approval from Gov. Sarah Palin does not win, that race will become the ultimate 'bell weather,' proving once and for all that 'everybody knows' that she is a ditzy airhead who lacks 'gravitas,' more suited to pushing an airplane drink cart than being involved in serious public policy issues. Of course, she is not on the ballot anywhere. That fact that won’t matter in Sarah’s case, but it will be repeated incessantly about Barack Obama, as in 'President Obama wasn’t on the ballot, so I don’t think we can think of this stunning defeat of the democrats a referendum on him.'"
James Pethokoukis at NRO:
"Who was the biggest winner of Election Day 2010? Sarah Louise Palin. She bestrode the political stage and backed winners in key primary states like Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina."
Sahit Muja at WSJ's
"Tea Party and Sarah Palin are the winners of this election... The popularity of the Tea Party movement and former Governor Palin in particular attests to the fact that many of us want smaller government, less intrusion from it in our daily lives, and a financial system that stops spending money we don't have. Democrats continued [to] focus on finding ways to stick collective fingers in Tea Party movement and Gov. Palin's eyes whenever they get the chance."
Michael Falcone and Amy Walter at ABC News' The Note:
"Palin now has something else going for her: a cadre of candidates she endorsed who soon will take office in key House, Senate and governor's seats and who are in Palin's debt."
Redbaiter at CrusaderRabbit:
"The left like to falsely portray Palin as a quitter for resigning as Governor of Alaska. The long term benefits of this strategic move are now plain to everyone other than the most bigoted Palin hater. She has skewered Obama and his mainstream media cronies... at every turn.... I’m not saying Palin is my pick for President. I’m saying that the left and the soft right are wrong when they attack her as 'inexperienced'. She’s streets ahead of all on the left and most on the right in intelligence, political nous, and (most of all) courage. The girl's got heart like you wouldn’t believe. She prevailed in this election and she will continue to prevail. That the political establishment of the hard left and the soft right hate her so intensely is one of the main reasons I support her as I do."
Freedom Fighter at Joshuapundit:
"The real story is that if Sarah Palin and Jim DeMint hadn't kept the Tea Party activists and candidates within the Republican tent, the massive Republican victory Tuesday simply wouldn't have happened."
Peter Wallsten at The Wall Street Journal:
"A revitalized Republican Party began looking toward the 2012 presidential election with renewed optimism about its prospects but uncertainty about who was best positioned to lead the charge... Ms. Palin's active media presence and endorsements in the midterm campaign have maintained her high profile as a spokeswoman for her party. In a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll in mid-October, Republicans cited her most often as the 'most important leader or spokesperson' for the GOP... Independent voters also cited Ms. Palin as the 'most important' GOP leader..."
