More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 218

"Sailing for Tomorrow" Edition

Mark A. Gorski at TNGovWatch.org:
"Since 2012 the Liberal Left, their chosen politicians and their flunkys in the media have gone after Sarah Palin with everything they have. They have attacked her on every level possible. They have attacked her children and family. They have even gone so far as to move one of their flunkys in next door to her and yet she has weathered each and every attack and proven them wrong. She has done this using the best means possable. She has not lowered herself to their level nor she has not gotten down in the gutter and mixed it up with them. She has simply opened up her life for all to see and steadfastly remained true to her principles and beliefs. In Short, she allows her actions to stand on their own and refuses to compromise her beliefs and principles."
Ed Gillespie, former RNC Chairman:
"In the way JFK was the first made-for-television president, she may be the first made-for-Facebook president."
Tina Hemond at Degrees of Moderation:
"One has to hand it to her: Palin refuses to be defined, and to her credit. As a candidate she may be 'polarizing', however she also has the 'star power' factor, more than anyone is the current crop of possible contenders, which works so well with today’s realty TV based electorate. She knows how to use the media to her advantage, specifically so called new media, like social networking. Contrary to the AP story and one GOP insider, no other candidate is more 'battle' tested than one Sarah Palin. One would have had to be living under several rocks for the past three years not to witness the media’s assignation attempt, aided by members of the Beltway to Broadway crowd, and it has – obviously only made Palin more prepared. Clinton, when asked about her 'past' in one of the DNC debates in 2008 noted that (paraphrasing) she was an open book, that everyone knew and had seen everything. It is safe to say that vis a vis, the media (includes bloggers, etc.) Sarah Palin, fared much worse than Clinton, and has managed to come through apparently unscathed."
Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit:
"Why They'd Rather Talk About Sarah Palin (Cont’d): CBS Poll: Americans Unconvinced Economy on Rebound."
Jennifer at Cubachi:
"Palin is right: Obama’s budget is 'more about raising taxes and growing government' ... Obama’s budget is an utter disaster. There is nothing about it that saves taxpayers’ money (in fact it increases taxes), that reduces the debt, nor reduces the size of government. Senators Marco Rubio and Jim DeMint made their points. However, a private citizen who has more power to put the focus on political debate than any other I’ve ever seen, is Governor Sarah Palin. She took to Facebook to lambaste this atrocious and laughable budget... she pin points it. Where are we saving money? How can 1/10th of a percent in cuts, aid an economy that is trillions of dollars in the hole?"
Jim Geraghty at NRO's Campaign Spot:
"On her Facebook page, Sarah Palin has weighed in on President Obama’s budget proposal... There’s still no word on whether Dana Milbank has been admitted to an addiction treatment center."
Freedom Fighter at Joshuapundit:
"It is a curious fact that every time our Beloved Republic has faced unusual peril and challenges, we have had a president born under the sign of Aquarius in the White House who has steered us through it.George Washington was born under the Aquarius/Pisces cusp. Lincoln, Reagan, FDR and yes, Governor Sarah Palin were all born under the sign of Aquarius."
Phyllis Schlafly via The Daily Caller:
"[The feminists] are really spooked by Palin because she’s done everything and she is a success. Besides she is pretty and they cannot stand her."
Melissa Clouthier at RedState.com:
"If anyone tells you that sexism or racism no longer exists, they’re delusional. The treatment of Sarah Palin and Clarence Thomas serve as Exhibits A and B. In fact, I’ve spoken to many fine conservative women who would never run for office because they’ve seen the treatment conservative women receive and don’t want their families subjected to the abuse. The press has created a hostile working environment for conservative women. They’re like the lecherous old boss harassing the woman until she quits. The solution to this unfair treatment isn’t to gripe about it. It’s to win."
Scipio at RedState.com:
"We all know about the left’s horrible attacks on Sarah Palin... but the left isn’t fond of Herman Cain either. Not only because he is a successful conservative, but because he has committed the liberal crime of being a successful conservative who is black and not a Democrat."
Doris at Alaskans4Palin:
"There are a few loud voices in Alaska that are dependable in their hatred for Sarah Palin. For the most part, they are extreme left wing liberals or rejected Palin administration job applicants and they are certainly still out there. The media in Alaska, like most other places in the country, is no different. One of their favorite memes is that Sarah Palin is a quitter... Those outside the State who wish to dismiss her as a quitter are likely missing some... key information regarding Alaskan politics. Those within the State who make the same charge are likely the same people who supported the obstacles that shackled her administration. Liberals will continue to make the charge, as it is getting increasingly difficult for them to attack her in any other way. Those who seek truth need to hear the other side of the story. The left wing liberal media and bloggers have spewed their hatred and skewed perception of Governor Palin’s resignation for long enough."
Clifton B at Another Black Conservative:
"Just how bad is Obama's new budget? So bad that Hope Dope Andrew Sullivan tore himself away from Sarah Palin's reproductive history to pen this scathing critique..."
Jim Treacher at The DC Trawler:
"Andrew Sullivan, forensic obstetrician and blogger for The Atlantic, pauses in his neverending search for Trig Palin’s afterbirth to announce that he has torn his Barack Obama poster off his bedroom wall and thrown himself facedown on the bed in despair... This from the man who once wrote: 'We may in fact have finally found that bridge to the 21st century that Bill Clinton told us about. Its name is Obama.' I’ve got another bridge I’d like you to take a look at, Andrew. It’s in Brooklyn…"
Tom Smith at The Right Coast:
"And what if Sarah Palin had said the Muslim Brotherhood was secular?"
K. Crary at Internet Scofflaw:
"The left’s hatred for Sarah Palin makes them do some amazingly stupid things... When TIME learned of its error, it was unable to maintain the high journalistic standards of Us Weekly. Instead of admitting it made a mistake, it claimed that it knew the quote was bogus all along... In other words, 'I meant to do that." Pathetic. Actually, it’s even more pathetic than it first appears, when you consider that their defense is that they printed the line knowing it was false. They would rather that people thought they knowingly print libel than be thought a bunch of buffoons."
