More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 214

"Keep On Keeping On" Edition

Grant O’Neill at Left Coast Ledger:
"News came upon the announcement by Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller that Governor Palin now supports gay marriage, gay adoption, and coming out parties at Elaine’s, or something to that effect... Of course Palin didn’t say any of that, any more than she said she supported GOProud joining CPAC. What she said was that she doesn’t care... Honestly, you would think that the left-stream media would wake up and realize that they raise Palin’s stock every time they open their traps about her. Last week it was the cooked up contest between the Governor and Ron Reagan Jr., and now this. (It should be noted here that matching off Sarah Palin with Ron Reagan Jr. is like pitting a pit bull against a Pekinese). But they keep on keeping on... Not speaking for Governor Palin here, but conservatives as a whole simply don’t believe in identity politics... Now we understand that in someone like Alan Colmes’ world not being for gay marriage is roughly the equivalent of holding gay beatings at Wednesday night prayer meeting. But why does The Daily Caller get caught up in this silliness?"
Andrea Tantaros at Fox Nation:
"Whether Sorkin is a misogynist with an inexplicable Palin obsession or he's just a man with too much time on his hands, he helps demonstrate why Palin is so effective: She reveals the ugliest side of the far left."
Kyle Drennen at NewsBusters:
"In an interview with 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl for CBS's Sunday Morning, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin made his latest attack against Sarah Palin... Stahl made no effort to challenge Sorkin's vicious personal attacks, simply remarking: 'He seems to be having a second career these days, going after Sarah Palin. In an essay for The Huffington Post, he called her a witless bully.' Given the media's concern with civility and harsh political rhetoric in the wake of the Tucson shooting, one wonders why Stahl did not condemn such language."
Stephen Green at the PJ Tatler:
"A new entry for the Devil’s Dictionary. Dupnoid, noun. From Pima County, AZ Sheriff Clarence Dupnik. A person who must blame Sarah Palin for absolutely any and everything."
ByTheirWords at By Their Words You Will Know Them:
"Chris Mathews thinks Sarah Palin’s followers are nearly illiterate. But... Apparently he thinks Palin herself is smart enough to pull the strings of millions of puppet-like followers... The left’s narrative on Palin is evolving. Watch it carefully. First the talking heads all agreed that she was simply dumb, stupid, not bright. They were dismissive. 'Surely,' they thought, 'we can make her vanish in a cloud of derisive laughter.' They were wrong. So now it is on to step two: Make her appear not just wrong in her viewpoints, but evil and manipulative as well... The obvious logical error in their thinking is that by calling Palin’s supporters basic illiterates, they alienate the very people they hope to persuade."
Van Helsing at Moonbattery:
"Some stories are too good to check — like any story that supports the liberal establishment's caricature of Sarah Palin... Fortunately for US Weekly, its readership is too lost in a fog of moonbattery, intellectual sloth, and general cluelessness to ever know the difference."
Rick Moore at Holy Coast:
"Just a few days ago lefty MSNBC host Rachel Maddow reported a story that claimed that Sarah Palin was calling for an invasion of Egypt. The story was a hoax but Maddow reported it as fact and was quickly shot down by somebody who bothered to research it. Now there's another example as US Weekly has reported another fake Palin story from a parody website... Why does this keep happening? Very simply, the left has become so fully engaged in the Palin mythology they've created that all of these stories sound completely plausible to them... It's Palin Derangement Syndrome in full display."
P.J. Salvatore at Big Journalism:
"No, tabloid US Weekly has never been biased."
Us Magazine:
"On Wednesday, along with several other media outlets, erroneously published a story attributing quotes to Sarah Palin; in a supposed radio interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, the former Republican Vice Presidential nominee was quoted bashing Christina Aguilera's botched rendition of the National Anthem at Sunday's Super Bowl... Shortly after Thursday's story was published, Us learned that the Palin-Hannity interview never took place, and that the quotes were the invention of a website. We sincerely regret and apologize for the error."
Glynnis MacNicol at Business Insider:
"Turns out US Weekly isn't the only magazine willing to believe anything about Sarah Palin... TIME also fell for it. Yes. TIME magazine."
Robert Schlesinger at U.S. News and World Report:
"CNN and Opinion Research released a new poll... which is getting a lot of notice for Republicans signaling a strong desire to nominate an electable candidate against Barack Obama in 2012 rather than someone who is right down the line on the issues. While on its face this seems a blow for Sarah Palin's potential presidential hopes... the same CNN poll which shows Republicans desirous of an electable candidate has Palin in a three-way statistical dead heat as the front runner for the nomination... Many Republicans, primary voters especially, believe that the country is fundamentally ideologically conservative and votes accordingly. So Democratic gains in 2006 and 2008, for example, were punishment of the GOP for being insufficiently conservative rather than any sort of endorsement or embrace of their opponents. If you buy this world view then there is no conflict between electability and ideological purity: The more conservative a candidate is by definition the more electable the candidate."
Henry D'Andrea at Politicons:
"Mike Huckabee who is the current Republican Presidential frontrunner might actually give the Republican Nomination to Sarah Palin. If he doesn’t run that is."
Grant O’Neill at Left Coast Ledger:
"If The Patriot Act only covered roving wiretaps on Sarah Palin and her family it would have been made permanent years ago. Democrats only care about violation of civil liberties when it applies to Black Panthers, illegal immigrants and Muslims. As it is, Republicans, especially recently elected tea party Republicans, are left holding the bag for refusing to extend provisions of the Patriot Act that fairly distribute suspicion of terrorism to Jehovah’s Witnesses receiving overly large Watch Tower shipments."
Greta Van Susteren at GretaWire:
"I have no idea about the Palin event or the cancellation but I do know she gets threats...big time. She gets them probably worse and more than anyone but the President."
Scott Sedlak at Tea Party Tribune:
"You remember Sarah Palin using the term ‘blood libel’ in her official response to all the Palin-hating that happened after the Tucson shooting... We listened as the left criticized Palin for not responding on their time table and then saying, 'How dare she!' when she did... I say Palin was correct in using the term ‘blood libel’ for one indisputable reason: When the left accused us of being responsible, they incited people to be violent and seek retribution. I’m sure Palin, Limbaugh and Beck have all received their death threats from day one... Sarah Palin correctly used the term ‘blood libel’ and yet, people still criticize and demonize the poor woman for defending herself..."
