More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 177

"Death Panels Don't Have No Mercy" Edition

bc3b at Be John Galt:
"When Sarah Palin coined the phrase 'Death Panels' [last] year the left in general – and the media in particular – went nuts. PoliFact, which is owned by the far-left St. Petersburg Times, 'honored' Palin with it’s Lie of the Year Award. Well, according the the New York Times, the newspaper of record for the left, 'death panels' are on their way by executive order... Think PoliFact will be issuing
an apology soon? Nah!"
B. Daniel Blatt at GayPatriot:
"Sarah Palin Was Right..."
John Hayward at Human Events:
"Palin was able to shame the Democrats into dropping aggressive end-of-life counseling from ObamaCare during passage, but like everything else about the most disastrous bill of the modern era, it was a lie. The Times approvingly reports that the Administration is quietly restoring these provisions through regulation, specifically a Medicare policy that will 'pay doctors who advise patients on options for end-of-life care, which may include advance directives to forgo aggressive life-sustaining treatment.' And just who will be writing those 'advance directives?' I’d say the odds of this Orwellian government naming it the 'Life Panel' are better than even."
Jennifer at Cubachi:
"Juan Williams on Fox News Sunday, claims Sarah Palin is not a match, intellectually, for Barack Obama... So who does Juan think will be a formidable candidate for the GOP? Mike Huckabee. Oh spare me."
Whitney Pitcher at Conservatives 4 Palin:
"If you juxtapose President Obama’s experience, policies, and record against Governor Palin’s experience, stances and record, then I suppose Williams is right. Governor Palin cannot stand on the 'intellectual' stage with Obama, and rightfully so. While President Obama’ s supposed intellect has made us a less secure nation in every sense of the word, Governor Palin’s gubernatorial record and stances would lead America to [be] a more financially stable and more secure nation. Governor Palin stands on the stage of common sense, practicality, and smart governance. Juan Williams and President Obama can exit stage left."
"Juan Williams is [a] left wing nut... and always takes swipes at conservatives whenever he gets the chance, especially Sarah Palin... So why should I have been surprised when yet again Williams made another asinine statement on Fox News Sunday..."
Joe Newby at
"Who else can send the entire Democratic Party-media complex into a seething, incoherent rage with a single Facebook note? But Williams gave Fox viewers a taste of a potential match-up between Palin and Obama. If this is the tactic liberals intend to use, they might want to look back in history a few years. There was another Republican attacked as a stupid war-monger, but Americans elected him to not one, but two terms as President. His name was Ronald Reagan."
ZIP at Weasel Zippers:
"Juan Williams: Sarah Palin 'Can’t Stand on the Intellectual Stage With Obama'… Obama’s teleprompter unavailable for comment…"
Marc Lacey at The NY Times:
"Edward Farrell, Maricopa’s vice mayor and a fourth-generation resident, gave Todd Palin, Ms. Palin’s father, a tour of Maricopa earlier in the year and was under the impression that he was looking for a house for the entire family. 'I left the meeting thinking that maybe he and Sarah were looking for a place to live,' said Mr. Farrell, who was surprised when he learned that [Bristol] Palin was listed as the buyer."
Meghan Spielman at American Honey:
"Sarah Palin is a very controversial figure with both conservatives and liberals, but I don't care what other people say. I like her!"
Jim Meyer at Red County:
"The elitist know-it-alls -- both leftist and alleged conservative -- who bash Governor Palin do so primarily because she's a decided non-elite who has never done anything in her life or her political career the way THEY think it should be done. She didn’t obey THEIR rules. She didn't follow THEIR formula. She didn't paint by THEIR numbers. She didn't do things THEIR way, and yet she has succeeded anyhow. Governor Palin's continuing story of personal success totally perplexes and frustrates elitist snobs on both ends of the political spectrum. And they react to her the way all arrogant, conceited and narrow-minded people do when confronted with someone they don't understand and can't tolerate: By attacking her."
Cathy Lynn Grossman at USA Today's Faith & Reason blog:
"Sarah Palin is the top religion newsmaker in 2010 to many Faith & Reason readers..."
Mark Vogl at America Today:
"The 'smart' people, the Ivy Leaguers, the Bushes and the Clintons, and the Obamas, and the McCains and the rest of are the ones who have brought our nation to the brink of catastrophe. You are the ones who created the huge deficits. You are the ones who have our nation in two wars. And you are the people who have allowed tens of millions of illegals into the nation, and tens of millions of jobs to leave the nation. No, we really don't care what you think, or what you say. Sarah, give us a chance, just get your name on the ballot... let us do the rest."
David C Beach at BLN:
"Hello Sarah Palin, though I never knew you at all, you had the grace to hold yourself while those around you crawled. They crawled out of the woodwork and they shouted insults at your name, they lied about your record, and they drove themselves insane."
Rob Port at SayAnythingBlog:
"Her point is that the Sarah Palin of her various op/ed pieces doesn’t 'sound' like it came from the Sarah Palin who goes camping on her TLC program. Which means, what? You can’t enjoy camping and fishing and have serious thoughts about Iran’s nuclear program? The intent here is to suggest that Palin isn’t smart enough to have her own opinions, and that her serious policy writings are the words of someone else. Which is pretty unfair as even Perino admits that plenty of politicians use speech writers and other advisers to craft their policy writings... Frankly, I love that Palin is in the mix. I don’t always agree with her, but she’s a wild card. She challenges the establishment and the status quo, and that’s exactly what Republicans need."
