More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 159

"Ruling Class Breakdown" Edition

Jack Cashill at American Thinker:
"In easily the best moment on the otherwise-unwatchable new CNN show 'Parker Spitzer,' documentarian John Ziegler confronted the RCM princess on her pre-election affection for the would-be president. 'You were duped by the media,' said the charming pit bull Ziegler. 'No, I'm not going to say I was duped,' said Parker, but of course, she was -- if not by the media, then by her own blithering self-esteem. Like so many on the respectable right... by welcoming Obama into their club -- and, in the same spirit, by keeping Sarah Palin out -- they differentiated themselves from their red-blooded allies in what Parker dismissed pre-election as 'the right-wing blogosphere.' The problem for the RCM is that they no longer control the information flow... To preserve their respectability, respectable conservatives have chosen to ignore what the blogosphere reports. As a result, when they look at Obama, they still see Michael Jordan and wonder why he is off his game. Out in the blogosphere, we see Stuart Smalley and wonder when the breakdown comes."
Nadine Dorries, Member of Parliament:
"Palin is a toughie. She has passion, charm, drive and ability along with a huge, massive connectivity to the American people. She continues to demonstrate her willingness to tackle tough domestic and international issues; in doing so she presents herself as a serious 2012 contender who is not willing to be defined by the liberal media."
Nicole Coulter at Conservatives 4 Palin:
"Had Palin served out her natural term, and ran for re-election, the chorus of "is she qualified" would have been mollified by her overwhelming accomplishments and an acceptably completed term in office... Unfortunately, she stepped down 16 months shy of a full term. When you look at that as a percentage, however, Palin actually served two-thirds of her term ... the precise percentage Barack Obama served of his term in the senate. Yet while many of us have trouble recalling what Obama did in the U.S. Senate while he was simultaneously running for president, Governor Palin balanced three budgets, passed sweeping ethics reforms, ushered in an innovative method of calculating oil profit taxes, and broke through decades of gridlock to move ahead on a $40 billion private natural gas pipeline, all while forward funding education and saving prudently for her state's' rainy day fund."
Perry de Havilland at
"Sarah Palin has apparently attacked Barack Obama in her impending book 'America By Heart' and Alex Spillius writes: 'The attack is likely to deepen the impression that the former Alaska governor is too divisive a figure to win the presidency.' A political saying unflattering things about a political opponent! Whatever next?"
Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters:
"After spending much of his week accusing Rush Limbaugh of racism, Ed Schultz on Friday made the same absurd claim about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. Following in the footsteps of others on his network as well as the liberal blogosphere, the MSNBCer said it was racist for Palin to refer to comments Michelle Obama made in 2008 about never having been proud of her country before her husband started winning primaries. It was also racist of Palin to mention in her book the Obamas' connection to Rev. Jeremiah Wright... Liberals are famous for having opinions about conservative books they don't read."
Kevin Kristy at NH 4 Palin:
"The leftwing media has gone into (protective) overdrive... So let me get this straight. Obama is the one who sat in Rev Wright's racist pews for twenty years. Yet it is Palin who is 'too divisive' for simply mentioning it."
Patterico at Patterico's Pontifications:
"Almost daily, it seems, some liberal moron criticizes Sarah Palin for being stupid — and then gets shown up. To take one recent and memorable example, she was taken apart for telling Tea Partiers to 'Party like it’s 1773.' Stupid Sarah Palin! The Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776! Except that, er, the Boston Tea Party (which inspired the Tea Party movement) occurred in . . . 1773. With that as background, relish this gem from Gawker... 'Sarah: If you're reading this—and if you are, welcome!—you may want to take a moment to familiarize yourself with the law. Try starting here or here. Or skip the totally boring reading and call one of your lawyers. They'll walk you through it.' By now, you’ve guessed the punchline. Palin’s publisher Harper Collins sued Gawker, and a judge pretty much instantaneously ordered Gawker to pull down the excerpts. Next comes the part where Gawker pays monetary damages."
Susan Duclos at Wake up America:
"Sarah Palin 1 - Gawker 0..."
Anne Leary at BackyardConservative:
"Barbara Bush... keeps her mouth shut for years to emerge with this? I guess she wants to stay in the good graces of the Kennebunkport set, but did you notice even Maine went TEA party, Barbara? Sarah Palin is in tune with America--common sense and guts. Grounded and inspirational. Get used to it. And while I won't tell Barbara Bush to shut up I think these establishment types are creating a backlash among the base -- we want to choose our own candidates, thank you very much."
Ron Devito at US 4 Palin:
"Barbara Bush looks like she’s very happy in Kennebunkport, Maine. We hope she stays there."
Melissa at Simple Country Girl:
"My dad posed the question "What has she [Sarah Palin] done to deserve such hatred?" Indeed, what has she done? Let's count the ways... I want to know what is wrong with people? ... As big a mess as our elected government has made of things, no one party is more guilty than the other, do you really want them governing how you spend your money, what, if, and when you can eat, what health care you deserve to receive and when or if you receive it? Get a clue people! Every time you demand someone else's rights be infringed upon you lose some of your own freedom. If the government can do it to 'the rich' they will do it to you too. Sarah Palin will be the least of your worries. Whether or not Bristol Palin remains on Dancing with the Stars won't matter in a year's time. what matters is what you're willingly signing over to the government. Uncle Sam isn't your big brother, he's becoming your worst enemy and you're blindly allowing it. Wake up. Get a clue."
Tom Bergeron, DWTS co-host:
"I’m a liberal Democrat, and I state that proudly. But I have no patience with my friends who believe there is a conspiracy keeping Bristol on the show... If she happens to get more votes for whatever reason, more power to her. If you don’t like it, vote for someone else."
Dana Loesch at Big Journalism:
"First it was the clinger who shot his television after Bristol Palin made it to the finals on 'Dancing with the Stars.' Now we learn that white powder was sent to Palin at DWTS studios this past week... Bristol Palin isn’t doing anything political; she’s making lemonade out of the lemons [that] life – by way of attention brought on by a political decision which was not hers to make – has given her and is doing quite a stellar job, I might add. It amazes me, as it also does Jon Stewart, how the left will so nurse a prejudice against an individual that they’ll allow it to transcend the political figure and extend to their children – and the media and societal construct encourages it."
Tony Dovolani, professional dancer:
"I think the mainstream media and the tabloids, everybody loves to bash her. She's a single mother at 19, so to deal with that much hatred towards her, I think she handles herself really good... And we have a beautiful journey in Bristol — someone who has never danced before and in the period of ten weeks, has learned to become a dancer. I think it's great."
Mark Ballas, Bristol's DWTS partner:
"Bristol... knows how thankful I am to call her my partner and friend. What Bris doesn't know is how thankful I am for what she has taught me this season. It can be summed up in two words: determination and respect. Everyone goes through his or her own version of pain and endurance issues on the show — both the celebs and the dancers... Bristol deals with a special pain of having people wanting and hoping for her to fail and dealing with hate issues no one should ever have to encounter. But probably her greatest source of pain is hearing what is said about her son. Fortunately, she has this miraculous way of dealing with it and focusing on getting better each week and proving to herself, that despite all that noise, she is a woman to be respected."
