More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 150

"You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma" Edition

Paul Monies at NewsOK.com:
"Sure, it’s two years away, but it’s never too early to set up political action committees if you’re considering a run for president. So far, three potential Republican candidates have started Oklahoma PACs that are tied to the national ones they’ve already established at the Federal Elections Commission. The state PACs allow them to donate to various candidates or issues in Oklahoma... Last month, former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin started an Oklahoma PAC."
Democrat strategist Kirsten Powers via The Liberty Musings Blog:
"They don’t understand what’s going on in the country if they think that they can stop her."
James Nava at The Americano:
"Sarah Palin has become a dynamic and mobilizing force for American conservatism, has a wide social base supporting her and good communication skills. She needs more political support, but she’s working hard on it in the most-active pre-campaigns that we have ever seen, with the ability to communicate and capture what the majority of citizens want for this country."
Steven Fishman at The World Of Politics:
"Sarah Palin... seems to give the Tea Party some creditability. If I was a Democrat, I would be very worried in 2012."
Amy Siskind at The Daily Caller:
"The Republican Party, perhaps unwittingly, has become decidedly more pro-women in 2010. Sarah Palin can take credit for much progress here. Not only has Palin endorsed and elevated women in the GOP, she also continually speaks out and defends them from sexism... The challenge now for the GOP is to evolve. They’ve set the pace in 2010 by being the party of the first woman governors in South Carolina, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Further, the party of the country’s first Indian-American woman governor, and New Mexico’s first elected Latina governor. Now, the real challenge begins."
Linda Turley-Hansen in the East Valley Tribune:
"Gov. Palin has been the bull's eye for every hate barb looking for a target. It's impossible to compute the animosity she absorbs as she remains resilient."
David A. Patten at Newsmax:
"Iowa, with the first date on the primary calendar, plays a critical role in selecting the GOP presidential nominee. [Rep. Steve] King... believes Palin would be able to 'build a base pretty quickly' there. One Palin advantage: She gave an early endorsement to GOP Gov.-elect Terry Branstad, who on Tuesday became the first candidate in 48 years to unseat an incumbent Iowa governor (Democrat Chet Culver). Huckabee, by contrast, had endorsed Branstad's GOP opponent, tea party favorite Bob Vander Plaats, in the primary. Now that the midterm elections are in the rearview mirror, all eyes are looking toward 2012. As arguably the only bona fide GOP celebrity, Palin already is sucking a lot of oxygen out of the room... King says Palin's brand of politics would make her a formidable force in the Hawkeye State... adding that Palin would be a serious competitor in the Iowa caucuses, which often serve as a springboard to the rest of the primaries."
Pragmatic American:
"For those who appear to believe Sarah Palin is a dope, then why does she clearly see the problems here, and the Fed Chairman, Ben Bernanke, does not?"
Clifton B at Another Black Conservative:
"I remember a few days just before the elections last week, a talking head was saying that one of the sure signs that Palin would run would be her switching gears from campaign rhetoric to policy discussions. Since Tuesday’s elections I have noticed two policy discussions from Palin. The first was some pretty solid advice for Republicans taking over the House that appeared in the National Review the day after their big wins. The second is Palin['s speech Monday] in Phoenix. In this speech she tells Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke to 'cease and desist' with the very dicey QE2 monetary policy... The left and some of Palin’s distracters on the right have all been faulting her or being too light on policy. I have a feeling they are going to be getting a whole lot more policy from Palin in the very near future."
Moe Lane at RedState.com:
"THAT WOMAN 1, Wall Street Journal 0"
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air:
"Does the press ever tire of underestimating Sarah Palin? The latest to assume that Palin doesn’t research her topics is — surprisingly — the venerable Wall Street Journal, and on the equally surprising topic of economics... The point Palin made was that taking a voyage on the QE2 would make a difficult issue for consumers and retailers much worse through the deliberate introduction of even higher inflation, an explicit motivation behind the Fed’s actions. So Palin was right once again, and once again a reporter winds up with egg on face from starting out with an assumption that Palin couldn’t possibly know what she’s talking about. Lather, rinse, repeat."
The AP via Stix Blog:
"DeMint’s political action committee helped tea party candidates in Tuesday’s election. He’s also crediting Sarah Palin, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for inspiring tea partiers."
Man of the West at Fear an Iarthair:
"Elsewhere in the blogosphere, it is opined that a hypothetical Sarah Palin presidential cabinet would be composed of ideologues and hacks. The weird part is that I'm 90 percent sure that it would never occur to the writer(s) that others might think that such an objection indicates willful blindness. After seeing President Obama appoint Van Jones, for cryin' out loud, to the position of 'green jobs czar' (and that is only one example), it is hard to believe that anyone could have missed the president's own predilection for appointing ideologues and hacks, but apparently he/they have done just that. Or chosen to ignore it."
Carrie Devorah at Blue Star Chronicles:
"Come on guys. I hope you can find something better than this to throw at Sarah Palin. Oh wait, you already have thrown everything else at her. I guess an 'accidental favorite' controversy is the best they can do at this point."
Sonny Palermo at I Hate The Media:
"The midterm election results prove Sarah Palin continues to be a formidable force in US politics. Since facts bear this out as most of her candidates won, MSNBC was left with no choice but to make stuff up about her. In other words, it was business as usual at the leftist network. In between their usual sniping snippets of FOX envy, and snark-snogged attacks on all things conservative, the President’s propaganda channel dedicated delusional Ed Schultz’s closing segment to an ad hominem Palin attack, along with the obligatory bobble-head guest bought on to parrot his points, this time in the form of HuffPo’s Roy Sekoff, who mimicked the host with his 'The Palin factor is really no factor at all.' Really, gentlemen? ... 'MSNBC – Never let the facts get in the way of a good story'"
