More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention, Part 231

"Sacrifice" Edition

Chris Moody at The Daily Caller:
"The 40-day period of sacrifice before Easter began Wednesday, and... The Daily Caller asked... some Republican presidential hopefuls... if they’re planning to give anything up. Here’s what... Sarah Palin (Non-denominational born-again Christian)... said: 'I do observe Lent, and my family and I have traditionally sacrificed something during these weeks leading up to Easter Sunday. When I was growing up, my Irish Catholic grandfather would remind me that sacrifices offered up during Lent are to be like tithing — if you advertise your *sacrifice* and tithe, then you negate any spiritual gains. (Or maybe he’d say that because he didn’t want us to know what he gave up!)' Palin is a protestant, but she told TheDC that her 'Catholic baptism and Catechism classes have stuck with me internally.'"
Steven F. Hayward at NRO's The Corner:
"Good for Sarah! Hugh Hewitt has been attacking this early GOP debate for months, not simply because it is arguably too early, but because it is being sponsored by unsympathetic MSM types. More GOP contenders should arrange schedule conflicts for that date..."
Fred Karger, long shot GOP presidential candidate, at White House 2012:
"I met Sarah Palin in Alaska about 16 years ago... and I was just so taken by her then and I still am. I like her. I hope she enters the presidential primary. I think she will really liven up the debate. And I think she brings a lot of value to the Republican Party, has a huge following, and seems a little more open on some of the social issues... Well she is a very effective spokesperson with a huge following and has handled herself well. She’s had a tough time and people were gunning for her. She’s grown a lot, learned a lot and been in the national spotlight. And you know, it’s interesting, she has everybody else kind of waiting for her decision. She’s the 800 pound gorilla."
John Nolte at Big Hollywood:
"Just In Time for the Election! HBO to Release Film Based on Sarah Palin Hit-Job Game Change"
John Nolte at Big Hollywood:
"Kathy Griffin, aka the ‘50-year-old adult bully… has-been comedienne’ (gawd, I love Sarah Palin) remained defiant after Governor Palin requested that she leave Willow, her 16 year-old daughter, alone. No one should be surprised. After all, this is what 50-year-old adult bully, has-been comediennes do... Griffin’s excuse for publicly bullying Willow Palin? Supposedly Willow called someone a faggot on her Facebook page — you know, because she’s the only 16 year-old to ever lose her temper and use such a taunt. Griffin also condescendingly claims that she must defend her friends the gays against this menacing child... I wonder, though, if Griffin has ever shown the courage to speak out against Islamists murdering and subjugating gays in the Middle East? Does she love the gays enough to publicly stand up against a danger bigger than a 16-year-old girl?"
Dan Riehl at Big Journalism:
"James O’Keefe promptly released the entirety of his video of his lunch meeting with Ronald Schiller, now gone from NPR. To this day, Katie Couric has not done that as regards a hit piece on Sarah Palin she manufactured from an interview during the 2008 campaign."
Van Helsing at Moonbattery:
"Liberal director Brian De Palma's outlandishly inflammatory anti-American propaganda film 'Redacted' may have bombed at the box office, but it appears to have accomplished its purpose by directly leading an Islamist to murder Americans... If Sarah Palin bears responsibility for the Jared Loughner shootings due to surveyor symbols on a map that Loughner almost certainly never saw, think how much guilt hangs over De Palma. But I doubt he's losing any sleep over it. It's more likely that he's pleased to have struck a blow against America on behalf of its enemies. The film's financier Mark Cuban (leftist owner of the Dallas Mavericks) really got his money's worth."
Don Surber at the Charleston Daily Mail:
"The cruel irony of blaming Sarah Palin because some Bush-hating kook shot a congresswoman and killed 6 other people is revealed today and it's not amusing."
David at The Aged P:
"Being an Englishman and a political junkie I watch BBC Newsnight regularly. As with the US networks the BBC has an inbuilt left/liberal bias but, although you could never get an Obama/Clinton style love-in for Governor Palin, the recent Newsnight profile of her was reasonably fair... I think the Shannyn Moore clip was priceless…maybe the BBC producers (hardly likely to be Palinistas) nevertheless recognised a kook when they saw one and gave her enough rope to hang herself. The conclusion was that, although there are plenty of people who still have to make their minds up, Governor Palin is still a potent political force and should not be underestimated. Not exactly an overwhelming encomium for the ‘Cuda – but quite a bit fairer than a lot of the stuff I have seen from American TV."
Clifton B at Another Black Conservative:
"I fully expect Palin to run because she is a true believer. Palin really does love America and as such will not sit idly by and watch it falter under Obama or a less than true Republican candidate."
Rachel Alexander at
"Sarah Palin is playing coy about whether she will run, but she showed up in Iowa, early presidential candidate territory, to speak at the Republican Party’s Ronald Reagan dinner. As she signed autographs, she tellingly said, “I want to get back to Iowa soon.” Her Sarah PAC raised $3.5 million last year. After running for Vice-President on McCain’s ticket, she has continued to galvanize the conservative base by supporting Tea Party candidates around the country, often against the GOP establishment. But the left has gone after her so viciously over the past couple of years it may have hurt her viability. Huckabee, Romney and Palin are currently considered the top three contenders, with Gingrich likely breaking into the top tier. Other candidates interested in running will need to raise their profiles in order to become competitive."
David Kahane at NRO:
"I believe I’ve expressed myself in these pages many times about Your Gal Sarah, and how much we hate her, and how much we love her, and how much we love to hate her, and how much we hate to love her — hell, if it weren’t for the Divine Sarah, what would MSNBC use for cannon fodder all day long?"
Mark Whittington at Associated Content:
"Palin herself, in her book America by Heart, explained the difference between her version of feminism and the classical, understood version. Her version, which she dubbed 'pioneer feminism,' takes its inspiration more from Annie Oakley than Gloria Steinem. A pioneer feminist does not hate men, but loves them dearly, though she will not take any nonsense from them either. A pioneer feminist can kill a caribou, gut it, skin it and cook up some steaks for the family. She can raise a parcel of kids, but also run a business, run for office, and generally do anything she wants if she puts her mind to it. What is the other kind of feminism? Call it the faculty lounge version of feminism. That consists of rather angry women slouching about complaining about the 'patriarchy' and at the same time complaining that they can't find any good men to date. Palin, in word and deed, mocks the other kind of feminism, the kind that talks instead of does. If she were to become president, it would be the ultimate put down of the classical feminist movement. She will have done it not only without them, but in the teeth of their hell-hath-no-fury opposition."
Chris DeBello at Christie Watch:
"Christie spoke at Qatanani's mosque where he embraced him and called Qatanani, 'a man of great good will.' Is that the kind of 'unscripted moment' Christie believes Sarah Palin needs?"
Ace at Ace of Spades HQ:
"Sarah Palin committed two crimes that night [at the RNC Convention]: She spoke of Obama as if he were not, in fact, an earthbound god, but an unqualifed, shady pretender, a figure not ripe for worship but for lampooning; and therefore she threatened the chances of a liberal winning the White House. It has to be remembered that before her speech, Obama won every poll, easily; it was no an election so much as a coronation. After that speech, at least for two weeks, McCain/Palin surged ahead of Obama/Biden; she scared the [euphemism for excrement] out of them. I still think that when they see Sarah Palin, she reminds them of those weeks of terror, the same way you'll always be reminded of a death if you see the person responsible for it. It's emotionally wrenching just to be reminded that for three weeks in September and October of 2008, A God Bled."
