More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 200

"Smells Like Moonbat Chunder" Edition

Unlikely Hospitalist at Pundit Press:
"It would seem that The Sarah Palin may be subject to Australian law without ever having been born there or stepped foot there. Who knew? ... 'Certainly if Sarah Palin or any of those other politicians come to Australia, for whatever purpose, then we can initiate a private prosecution, and that's what we intend to do.' I always knew Sarah Palin was a wanted woman, but this is a little over the top...."
D-Lo at Weasel Zippers:
"I’m sure Sarah Palin is shivering in her boots. (/not)"
Marc Schenker at
"Dick Morris... said that Palin should have simply let the unjustifiable attacks on her fly without answering them... Bush left office with record-low approval numbers because the strategy of appearing 'presidential' and not fighting back is a bogus scam that people with no knowledge of human psychology advocate. The rule is this: If you are attacked, you have to fight back harder, or else you will be seen as weak, and the attacks from your opponents stick. That’s just the cold, hard truth in political life."
John Nolte via Twitter:
"Long after Palin's poll #'s rebound & the speech police get bored, we will have the last 10 days to throw in [their] faces FOREVER."
Richard Fernandez at Belmont Club:
"Perhaps the reason why the left is almost incandescently furious at Sarah Palin is because she refuses to play their little game. Since she doesn’t use their dictionary she is pilloried as illiterate. By using Oldspeak words she ipso facto gives offense. It is this stiff-necked refusal to get with the word program that may paradoxically give her the political strength. Those who’ve accepted the vocabulary of politesse, aka Newspeak, have unwittingly surrendered... Maybe being from Alaska, Palin never knew enough politesse to forget a very important principle: 'You don’t know what is possible before you try. And if you negotiate with yourself before you negotiate with others, you will never know what was possible.'"
Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) via Politico:
"If every person were like Sarah Palin, this world would be a peaceful, beautiful world to live in... If Sarah Palin has one hallmark, it is her commitment to protect and defend all innocent human life..."
Merv Benson at PrairiePundit:
"I think Sarah Palin is a fine person with policies that represent the mainstream of Republican positions. She can be articulate and energizing to the Republican base. She has a natural charisma and a life story to be proud of... It is way too early to write off a 2012 bid for President before she has even decided whether she will run. If she decides not to run, it should not be because her enemies don't want her to... If she runs, I will likely support her, because I support her policy positions on energy, the economy, and national security. Those who oppose her do not have an idea of what those positions are. That is another reason not to be too hasty in reacting to their rancor."
Al Fin at Abu Al-Fin:
"The common people who live in flyover country observe how the ruling classes treat Sarah, whom they consider one of their own. They watch and they remember."
Patricia Pledger at Smart Girl Politics:
"Do you ever stop to really think about who is telling us that Sarah Palin is not qualified to be President... Is she smart enough to secure the border? Is she smart enough to not bail out the unions and the banks? Is she smart enough to not cut deals with other countries that undercut the security of this county? I think that she is, and I think that makes her a whole lot smarter than the man we have in the White House now. Can you see Sarah Palin bowing and kowtowing to every two bit ruler and dictator like Chavez and the king of Saudi Arabia? I think it would be the other way around... Can you see Sarah Palin shutting down oil drilling, mining, and coal powered energy plants? Then why in the world would you even hesitate at whether she is qualified or not?"
Dueling Barstools:
"Without Sarah Palin to kick around, Olberman probably would have been off of the air in 2009."
Thomas Lifson at American Thinker:
"Washington Post writer Dana Milbank is organizing readers to vow to not read about Sarah Palin for the next month... This is pathetic, but at least Milbank recognizes that he and other journos are addicted to attacking Sarah, and that it is counter-productive. Meanwhile, without any use of twitter or any organized campaign, readers are boycotting the WaPo... Guess which boycott will succeed."
Rockport Conservatives:
"She is fighting back, so that makes it her fault! Bad, Bad Sarah."
James Taranto at WSJ Online:
"What about male Palin-hatred? It seems to us that it is of decidedly secondary importance. Liberal men put down Palin as a cheap way to score points with the women in their lives, or they use her as an outlet for more-general misogynistic impulses that would otherwise be socially unacceptable to express. Liberal women are the active, driving force behind hatred of Sarah Palin, while liberal men's behavior is passive and manipulative. In this respect, feminism has succeeded in reversing the traditional sexual stereotypes. If this is the result, you have to wonder why anyone would have bothered."
Vanderleun at American Digest:
"These colonized minds of the never-radical right would run the Geico Gecko before Palin -- if only because their wives would make their lives hell if they didn't."
Jack Kelly at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
"Death threats against Sarah Palin have spiked, an aide said. Could this be because so many in the media have accused her of inciting murder in Arizona? To make such an accusation without a shred of evidence is despicable. To continue to make that accusation after the evidence disproves it is beyond despicable. Yet the same journalists who have behaved so despicably have anointed themselves arbiters of what constitutes civil discourse in our politics. It's time for journalists to stop lecturing us on civility and time for them to start practicing it."
