More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 265

"Evil" Edition

John Nolte, at Big Journalism:
“Personally, I don’t believe for a second Sullivan thinks anyone but Sarah Palin is Trig’s mother. This is not a dumb man we’re talking about here, just an uncommonly cruel one. For going on three years now, Sullivan has consciously used this silly conspiracy theory as a partisan stalking horse in an attempt to viciously pound away at a political foe’s family. Because a direct attack against a politician’s family simply wouldn’t work, Sullivan created Trig Trutherism as a toxin delivery device that attempts to turn — through the most malicious and sadistic kind of rumor-mongering — a very normal and attractive family into some sort of freak show... This isn’t just bottom feeding and character assassination; it’s an outright act of evil. Obviously, by laughing this evil off as an eccentric blip on sweet Uncle Sully’s otherwise mainstream radar, the MSM willfully legitimizes what he’s doing — because they love it... Of course, some personal soap opera-issues spring up from time to time with every candidate through the media, but never anything like what we’re seeing with Palin. We’ve never seen the Left and their media allies weaponize children to delegitimize, defame, and attempt to define a politician before.”
“It's ironic that her parents named her Joy as she shows none of it and instead is quite the opposite... Sarah Palin on the other hand knows what she's talking about...”
John Hitchcock at Truth Before Dishonor:
“When Jared Loughner murdered a federal judge, a 9-year-old girl, several other people, and put a bullet in the head of Democrat Representative Giffords, lamestream media immediately started issuing blood libels against the TEA Party, Sarah Palin and others. The fact Loughner never paid attention to conservative politics and was noted by his acquaintances as being more left-wing never got the lamestream media to issue a mea culpa. The fact Loughner was a loon never entered into the lamestream media’s collective brains as they sallied forth with their vitriol.”
Tony Lee via Twitter:
“Come on POLITICO - ya can't quote Palin saying ‘Pro-life’ group then call the group ‘anti-abortion’ -- that's NOT journalism. It's advocacy.”
Daniel Greenfield at Canada Free Press:
“Not only do negative stories on Obama’s background not get reported, but people in high positions continue to cover for him. The contents of Sarah Palin’s personal email account were sprawled over the internet—but the LA Times won’t release Obama’s Rashid Khalidi tape. Yet is there a single person who honestly believes that if the Khalidi tape starred McCain, that it wouldn’t have been out there and on Page 1 of every major newspaper? Or if John McCain had attended a violently racist church or Cindy McCain had a photo op with David Duke’s wife that these wouldn’t have equally been Page 1 stories?”
Barry Rubin at Pajamas Media:
“If Sarah Palin says something stupid, a hundred sources will ridicule her and she won’t make the same mistake again. If Barack Obama says something stupid, he won’t learn anything because of the silence of the fans.”
Greta Van Susteren at GretaWire:
“What is is about Governor Sarah Palin and the media? ... But what is fascinating to watch is how the media (all of them!) just can't get enough of Governor Sarah Palin. They were all taking pictures of her with themselves for souvenirs and writing about her. She was prominent in the Washington Post coverage, Politico and I think the New York Times. Her name and picture was everywhere! With all the movie stars at the dinner, and big media and government names (Cabinet Secretaries and Senators etc.), whose picture does Vanity Fair show? You guessed it...”
Unidentified Reporter via The Last Refuge:
“Look at all these reporters who typically rip her a new one mosey on up to her, desperate to get a photograph.”
Rob Port at
“Has Sarah Palin Peaked? That’s the story from Newsweek, which is ironic given that it was just a few months ago that big media journalists were organizing a coverage boycott of Palin. In other words, first they were complaining that Palin was getting too much coverage. Now, after a concerted effort by at least some in the media to bury coverage of her, they’re using the fact that she’s not making as many headlines against her. Damned if she does, damned if she doesn’t... I wouldn’t count Sarah Palin out... Palin is, I’m guessing, lowering her profile a bit in advance of campaign season when she plans on being very visible indeed. ”
Don Surber at the Charleston Daily Mail:
“Maybe Palin as vice president would have been better than Obama as president.”
William Teach at Pirates Cove:
“This is a D.C. problem of both parties, who are slowly getting wise (too slow) to the hard fact that using food as fuel is a Bad Idea... Hey, remember when Liberals and wishy washy Republicans gave Sarah Palin a load of guff about food price inflation? Oh, and, hey, remember one of the news sites giving Palin crap was… The Wall Street Journal, the same outlet the above story is from? Me thinks the WSJ owes Sarah a wee bit of an apology... Darn it, we really need to breed the unicorns to provide fuel quite a bit faster!”
Stacy McCain at The Other McCain:
“Sarah Palin graciously gives credit where credit is due...”
Tony Pierce at Top of the Ticket:
“Thoma has been an environmental activist in Alaska for 40 years. This is the second time he has sued an Alaska governor. In 1997, Thoma claimed Walter Hickel had engaged in a smear campaign against him over his activism. When Thoma lost that case, he was ordered to pay the governor's legal fees totaling $77,865.50.”
“Palin Derangement Syndrome: There is no known cure.”
T. D. at Terrance this is stupid stuff:
“Sarah Palin goes after Obamacare and ‘death panels’ gets immediate changes in the bill... Romney, Huckabee, Pawlenty, Daniels, etc., go after ?, and get ? done. Not to mention, who campaigned most effectively for not-likely-to-win-but-pulled-off-an-upset candidates in 2010? Who has already had the biggest impact on your life?”
