More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 224

"Right Now" Edition

EH Vogel at Generational Dysfunction:
"Ronald Reagan captured our sense of resolve and evoked a 'can do' attitude... which we sorely need right now... And without a strong America leading the way, our world is doomed to experience more unrest like we see today in the Mideast, northern Africa and elsewhere. When the world senses a fading American dream, it loses its bearings and rightly so. We have to lead by example, not words. We have to lead by doing, not hoping. Moreover, we can only return to greatness if our leaders in Washington believe the same things that we do and get out of our way to prove it. Sarah Palin oozes confidence in the American dream. She knows what will inspire us and it isn't some government program. She has confidence in us and, so far, she's the only politician that seems to understand that and has understood it from the beginning. The minute that Ronald Reagan was elected President, the Iran hostage situation was over. The hostage takers knew their days were numbered with Reagan in office and they were right. The minute that Sarah Palin is elected President, the world will know that the United States has resurrected itself and [will] act accordingly, deferring to principled leadership. That, my friends, is what Sarah Palin means to the world."
Vilmar at Kickin' And Screamin':
"Chrissy, go change your Depends. Sarah forgot more about the world around her than you’ll ever know in your entire miserable existence."
Team CAPE PAC at
"If a woman is strong, raises her family and wants to make a difference in the world by being involved in politics, there’s nothing wrong with that. I thank women like Sarah Palin for being a trend setter and breaking new ground for women everywhere. I’m sure people made Susan B. Anthony out to be a crazy woman as well. But I highly doubt it was her fellow woman. This shouldn’t be a gender war. All men (and women) were created equal. We should be treated as such in the media. Unless, I ask, what is it about conservative women like Sarah Palin that scares the media so much?"
AF at Pennslyvania For Palin:
"The media has fallen from truth seekers to copy cats perched on a fence waiting for someone, anyone, to give them a crumb of anti-Palin gossip to rush into print. Guys, anyone ever think of fact checking this garbage? Yeah, I didn't think so."
Meredith Jessup at The Blaze:
"With apparently nothing better to report on, the latest gold mine for liberal bloggers... was the discovery of a 'secret' Facebook profile page which may or may not belong to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. (It doesn’t.) ... Why this non-story makes headlines in newspapers and whips the liberal blogosphere into a frenzy is beyond me. Since everything down to her choice of shoes is scrutinized in the media, it’s not surprising that Palin would utilize a more private medium to keep in contact with close friends or family. But since the Campaign to Destroy Palin has published her personal email address and private Facebook account, she can’t even do that."
The Sleeping Giant:
"Did Sarah Palin Shoot JR?"
Quin Hillyer at The American Spectator:
"Sarah Palin has a genius for finding just the right turn of phrase to capture attention and get her message across. Her principles seem to spring from deep within, rather than being mere appendages of convenience. And her instincts are anti-establishmentarian, in an age where the establishment's ramparts do need to be assaulted. (And yes, we can still use the word 'assault' in a political context. And we know Palin won't hesitate to do so, nor to 'target' the word-police for justifiable ridicule.)"
Scott Conroy at RealClearPolitics:
"Parnell had nothing but kind words for the woman under whom he served as lieutenant governor for two-and-a-half years."
Poll Insider:
"After spending the past 2 years as a popular conservative activist, hosting fundraisers for private schools and charities, she is spreading her wings into high-profile and public events, and will continue to do so over the next two months. Her first outing with the Long Island Association was an unequivocal success. The only thing the media could spin out of an hourlong, unscripted Q&A session was to falsely claim that Palin had 'attacked' Michelle Obama’s breastfeeding push when she was actually talking about the rising costs of food. In March, she is heading overseas to give the keynote address at the India Today Conclave."
Common American Journal:
"Sarah was right: New study shows Alaska could be 8th largest oil producer in the world"
Matthew Vadum of the Capital Research Center:
"Calling a character 'Kurt McVeigh' conjures up unmistakable images of mass murdering terrorist Timothy McVeigh. Hollywood screenwriters don't live in a cultural vacuum; they help to create American culture. They had to have known that making the character a conservative with a fondness for Sarah Palin was a clever way to take a jab at the former Alaska governor."
Mike Huckabee on 'Fox News Sunday':
" I didn't say they're all wrong. Let's be real clear, because then it sounds like I'm in a war with Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and Rush Limbaugh, and I'm not."
Jerry Springer, former Cincinnati mayor, via The Daily Caller:
"I don’t agree with her views. But I would never say anything mean about her. I think she is incredibly charismatic. I think she takes her religion very seriously and her views very seriously. I don’t think there’s anything mean-spirited about her... I think where liberals may be doing the wrong thing is when they try to make fun of her because they’re making fun of a large section of America that has those fundamental beliefs that she has... And I think that’s dangerous."
Ian Lazaran at Conservatives4 Palin:
"So I take it that Christopher does not consider taking questions from a pro-abortion, pro-gun control Democrat for over an hour before an audience of socially liberal Democrats and Republicans in an area where the Democrat Party is strong to be an 'unscripted moment.'"
Bernie Quigley at The Hill's Pundits Blog:
"Sarah Palin... gets her own category... The unpredictable, archetypal figure; the mythic she-bear who pushes the world out of hibernation. Those already entrenched and justified feel it shattering and falling around them. She is a political genius who came to dominate the zeitgeist in two years without a dime. The first question about 2012 remains, 'Will Sarah Palin run?'"
