More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 147

Special "Let's put the party on the streets" Edition

Bloomberg News:
"Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, embracing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s ability to galvanize voters, urged the Republican Party establishment to 'chill out.' 'You know, in the words of Bill Clinton, I feel her pain, you know?' Steele said in an interview on 'Political Capital with Al Hunt' airing this weekend on Bloomberg Television. 'My goal -- and I know Sarah’s goal has been -- let’s take the party and put it on the streets.'"
Erick Erickson at
"If you want to find out who some of the loudest anti-Palin voices are, in another year or so start checking for House and Senate staffers who have left to work on 2012 campaigns."
Jenn Q. Public at NewsReal Blog:
"If you rely on the Reich-wing, Tea-tard propaganda machine for your information, you probably missed the news about the sexually suggestive gift Sarah Palin received from Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio last week: pink panties! But no worries, the unimpeachable left-wing blogosphere will bring you up to speed on all the relevant facts. Er, 'facts'... Add 'pink underwear' to the moonbat mixer, blend until frothy, and BAM!: the sheriff has a creepy panty fetish. Hey, lefties: learn to Read the Freakin’ Google (and not just when it suits your political goals). The oh-so risqué pink undergarments Arpaio hands out as souvenirs are the same ones he’s famous for selling via his charity Web site,, and they look an awful lot like novelty boxers... But it’s the Tea Party Movement that contains a 'disturbing psychosexual undercurrent'? Oh, if only Tea Party women could be as enlightened as Jesse Taylor and his fellow bloggers on the Left. When will those dumb Tea Party broads get it through their thick, sexually fetishized skulls that Jesse knows what’s best for them. And he only hits because he loves."
"Rush Limbaugh ranks former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in a tie at 8 on a scale of 1 to 10 when asked to rate a list of the leading 2012 Republican presidential candidates, according to a Newsweek report."
Marcus Carey at Bluegrass Bulletin:
"I sense a new era dawning where the most powerful seats in the world will be held by women, in a greater majority, than ever before. At the forefront of this newest wave are two women from polar extremes, Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton. Palin possesses a disarming leadership quality which is incredibly effective. It is easy for people to underestimate her, and usually they do so at their peril. She appeals to men, both the Neanderthal types as well as the more refined family man types as well. She appeals to some women, but not so much to the Hillary types..."
Rudy Giuliani on CNN:
"My guess is yes – she's going to run for president. She sounds to me like somebody who's running for president."
Freedom Fighter at Joshuapundit:
"By keeping the Tea Party activists in the GOP instead of creating a third party, Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint and few others have given the Republicans a new lease on life and an opportunity to prove that they can be trusted to govern responsibly, restore fiscal sanity and move the country back on track to the ideas of the Founders. If they pass that test, 2012 will see the Republicans on track to win the presidency and cement even bigger majorities in place.If they do not, the American people will simply abandon them...not just for an election cycle or two but forever."
Jennifer at Cubachi:
"According to the New York Post, Sarah and Todd Palin were in New Jersey to check out the New York Jets playing in Giants Stadium as guests of owner Woody Johnson last Sunday. But guess who was watching the game with them? Governor Chris Christie! If this is true, I wonder what these three talked about…"
Shannon Bell at Right Pundits:
"You just have to love this narrative being put forth by the left and the Republican establishment that somehow the Republicans failed on Tuesday night. Even better is the flawed narrative that the tea party is to blame. Mort Kondracke, a joke himself, called Sarah Palin a joke in a conference call and said that she and Jim DeMint were to blame for Republican failure to capture the Senate... Kondracke’s premise (as well as [that of] establishment Republicans) is deeply flawed. Republicans took 63 House seats and 6 Senate seats on Tuesday. The numbers could rise depending on the outcome of several undecided elections. A pretty resounding win in my humble opinion, and I submit that the numbers would not have been as large as they were had it not been for the likes of Sarah Palin (the Joke) or Jim DeMint. Even deeper than that, Republicans captured 680 legislative seats on the State level (a surer sign of the Tea Party influence), absolutely remarkable..."
John Podhoretz at Commentary Magazine:
"Sarah Palin in National Review... This political formulation is — I use the word advisedly — brilliant."
Carl Lindquist at The Great Awakening:
"Now that they have used her to their political benefit, the tables haved turned and the Republican Establishment is beginning to try and force Sarah Palin out of her position of power within the Republican Party... Palin definitely scares the bejeebers out of the Republican 'good-old boys', as she calls them. And for good reason. She represents a political force within the party that is calling for real change... And the Republican Establishment really doesn't want change (small government, for example). Indeed, it is now reverting back to its normative ruling posture, as seen during the eight years of the younger Bush, i.e. talking the talk, but not walking the walk, of small-government conservatism."
Dr Matthew Ashton:
"While Goldwater lost by a landslide, one of his biggest supporters, Ronald Reagan, went on to win the Presidency in 1980 in one of the biggest victories in US political history. Reagan was seen as similarly extreme until he won and managed to shift the whole centre ground of American politics. Maybe Palin can do the same."
Rachel Wallace at AAUW Dialog:
"I’ve got three cheers for Sarah Palin’s enthusiastic and influential mentoring of women politicians, unprecedented on such a large and public scale. She inspired many women to get up and run for office. Her support for Indian-American Nikki Haley (R-SC) and Latina Susana Martinez (R-NM) helped propel the first women of color to governors’ mansions. As the Republican leadership moves into the House, it’s important that the boys’ club has a few women around, and I trust Palin and some of her friends will make sure that happens."
John Hayward at Human Events:
"Sarah Palin did the GOP a lot of favors during this election. She’ll have plenty of markers to call in, if she runs for President... Dismissing Palin as some kind of fringe, 'divisive' figure is transparently foolish. She made a difference for a bounty of good candidates, who will make a difference for America in the years ahead."
Fuzzy Slippers at Fuzzy Logic:
"[Obama]'s idea of energy independence is electric cars and cap and tax? Seriously? And he thinks that the republicans will go along with that garbage? They better not. Energy independence is using our own resources, not relying so heavily on foreign oil. But what does he do? He sends billions to Brazil so they can drill, he lets Cuba drill in the Gulf of Mexico, but he stops us from drilling. You know who he should talk to about energy independence? Sarah Palin. Everyone, including lunatic progs who nearly choke on the admission, knows that if there's one thing Sarah Palin knows inside out it's energy and America's natural resources. But he'd sooner meet with Ahmadinejad than Sarah Palin... The man's a disgrace, and nothing he said Wednesday changes that."
