More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 219

"Keep on running" Edition

Maggie Haberman at Politico:
"Sarah Palin flirted openly with running for president on Thursday, saying there's 'no one' more qualified for White House multi-tasking than 'a woman, a mom' and even went so far as to describe the man-on-the-street campaign she's considering... After saying she's still considering a presidential campaign but hasn’t decided yet, Palin told the gathering that no one else immediately comes to mind for who she would back if she doesn't run."
Jeff Graham at Mayor Graham's View:
"I was one who thought she wouldn't run... Now I am in the 50-50 category... But I am a Palinista..."
Poll Insider:
"Latinos Like Sarah Palin more than the Republican Party: Sure, the headlines run by the media/Politico went more like : 'Hispanics hate Sarah Palin' but in reality, and compared to Republicans, she isn’t doing half bad. 23% View the former Alaska governor at least somewhat favorable while 53% view her at least somewhat unfavorably. And that’s much better than what Latinos think of the GOP (18% GOP Doing Good, 66% GOP Anti-Latino/Don’t really care about Latinos)."
Henry D'Andrea at Politicons:
"Sarah Palin’s best bet for winning the Republican Nomination is Mike Huckabee not running. She would beat Romney if Huckabee doesn’t run."
Gary Bray at
"The GOP nominee will win the general and since it will be Palin she will win in a landslide. Everybody on both sides of the aisle not only knows this in their gut, but is why they are terrified of that actually happening... So you notice nobody wants to be the first on the Palin train since the establishmedia has done everything in their massive power to destroy her credibility and don’t want to climb out on that half sawed branch alone. So they all simply claim she has no chance and when she wins the election they can all call it an upset."
Tina Hemond at Degrees of Moderation:
"As Palin is competitive, and has been 'First' in several categories (i.e. first woman to be Governor of the State of Alaska, First woman to run on the GOP Ticket as Vice President), it would not surprise if she were first to announce her candidacy for the office of the President and her intent to run in 2012."
Merv Benson at PrairiePundit:
"If she were as bad as they claim, they would not fear her so much. Whether she can overcome the challenge of the negative coverage will decide not only her fate but ours. Others before her have overcome it. Ronald Reagan and George Bush to give two examples. I think she has yet to make the commitment to run. If she has, she is holding that decision close to postpone the fiery reaction of her foes to a time of her choosing."
Peter Brimelow at MarketWatch:
"Ruff hasn’t lost his taste for bold speculation. His latest issue contains a forceful endorsement of Sarah Palin — arguing 'she has fully captured the spirit of Ronald Reagan.' (Ruff was a major backer)."
The Editors at
"The latest example of leftist vitriol has Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, current radio talk-show host and possible 2012 GOP presidential contender, as its — dare we say? — target. Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Clarence Thomas and Allen West, among others, have already felt the wrath of the righteous left for shattering its, and the media's, stereotypes of women and minorities as docile sheep of a paternalistic government. After Cain's rousing speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, in which he shredded the tenets of big government and extolled the benefits of the free market, a leftist sewer on the Web, AlterNet, attacked him in a way that would make the Ku Klux Klan blush."
Shushannah Walshe at The Daily Beast:
"Glassner's longtime political skills, coupled with his calming presence and friendly temperament, will make him a welcome addition to the Palin world of constant requests and media inquiries."
Andy Barr at Politico:
"A New York Magazine story on Tuesday reporting that Sarah Palin parted ways with staffers Jason Recher and Doug McMarlin 'just before' the 2010 election doesn’t exactly hit the mark. For one thing, SarahPAC financial filings show that both received payments for consulting work after the conclusion of the November election. Neither aide was exactly ousted either, and their moving on was expected and not part of a 'shuffling' of mid-level staff, as the post on the magazine's website reported."
The Malcontent:
"We have the biggest debt in our history... and all the liberal/progressive bloggers can complain about are people like Sarah Palin!"
The Arizona Conservative:
"What's the best way to assure America of the right kind of leadership for the next several years? It's by getting behind... Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty, the two former governors. Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee are calculating politicians who cannot ignite and unify the Republican base. Newt Gingrich has too much baggage. What isn't needed now is a 1990's leader. That's why Pawlenty and Palin are so appealing as the leaders who can turn this underperforming nation around. They represent the best bets to courageously battle against socialism in Washington. Romney and Huckabee sure won't do that... Now is the time for Americans to stand up and get behind these two commonsense leaders."
Chuck Doud at The Madera Tribune:
"Palin’s strength is still the fact she is colorful and fearless, and is becoming increasingly well informed."
The Canadian Sentinel:
"Anti-Semitic, anti-woman VIOLENT HATE CRIME by Islamic supremacists from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt... and a 'tolerant' left-wing 'journalist' thinks it's fodder for joking... Logan, a '60 Minutes' correspondent, suffered a 'brutal and sustained sexual assault by a mob of men while covering the Egyptian uprising,' CBS News said. The New York Post reports the thugs were chanting, 'Jew! Jew!' during the incident. Logan was eventually rescued by a group of women and some 20 Egyptian soldiers. Bottom Line: It's the Left that is hateful and violent. And the Islamic Supremacists, too. Pity... the Lamestream Media refuses to tell it like it is, preferring to whitewash the reality and the implications... and is probably thinking of a way to spin it to somehow blame Sarah Palin for what happened..."
