More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 276

"Burning" Edition

Shane Vander Hart, at Caffeinated Thoughts:
“Interesting Gallup Poll… without former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee in the race, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich are considered the leaders of the current/prospective GOP field. Comparing those three, Frank Newport of Gallup writes that while there is no clear front-runner, Sarah Palin looks strong... She leads with name recognition with 96% name ID, she only trails Mitt Romney by 2% with nomination preferences (within the margin of error), but she leads with the ‘positive intensity score.’ All of this without campaigning or visiting primary states, now the burning question – will she run?”
Right Wingnut, at Right Speak:
“I have to think this makes it very tempting for the former Governor of Alaska to get into the race.”
Jim Geraghty, at NRO's Campaign Spot blog:
“Gallup has seemingly new numbers out... trying to measure how Republicans feel about their options for 2012 now that Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump are officially not running. However, it’s worth noting that these are actually numbers from previous months; they asked Huckabee and Trump voters their second choices and added those respondents to the pile of those second-choice candidates... Nonetheless, presuming the Huck and Trump voters haven’t changed their minds in the past few weeks, suddenly the results seem much more conventional, with Romney and Sarah Palin the new frontrunners. What’s more, Republican voters feel pretty warm towards all of the leading candidates; 74 percent have a favorable opinion of Romney, 72 percent have a favorable opinion of Palin and 69 percent have a favorable opinion of Gingrich.”
Donald Douglas, at American Power:
“Gingrich has lost both activists and the establishment. Contrast that to Sarah Palin, who's at the top of Gallup's new poll on Republican Party presidential preferences.”
Paul Mirengoff, at Power Line, 8 months ago:
“The potential candidates can be viewed as representing establishment/country club Republicans (Romney), evangelical Republicans (Huckabee), Tea Party Republicans (Palin), the spirit of 1994 (Gingrich), and good government Republicans (the governors). But, as I've suggested before, there's another way of looking at 2012 that I find at least as plausible: the nomination is Sarah Palin's to lose. This view is based on a series of assumptions, all of which I consider fairly strong, though certainly subject to question... But you get the idea: if Sarah Palin seeks the presidential nomination, it will be quite plausible to view her not as one of many or even ‘first among equals,’ but as the clear front-runner.”
Devonia Smith, at
“Tea Party patriots sound a bugle for Sarah to lead the charge to the WH...”
Noemie Emery, at the Washington Examiner:
“The New York Times played Wasilla as Dogpatch with sled dogs. Palin's refusal to conform to their concept of reason got her labeled in their minds as trash. On the Left, this let Bush hatred flow seamlessly into Palin dementia; on the Right, it prompted the gentry conservatives (including the one who co-hosted a talk show with Eliot Spitzer) to rush to distance themselves from it all. Demeaned by her presence, they let everyone know it. Never mind that her actual record in office tracked perfectly with the No Labels approach that they trumpeted later. Record? What record? They're intellectuals, aren't they? Do not confuse them with facts.”
Jedediah Bila, via Twitter:
“To lefties who love calling "stupid" & "incompetent":Stop making me laugh & do your research.Start here:
Aussie, at A world at war:
“Who does the MSM fear as a contender in 2012? The answer of course is Sarah Palin. This... once again points up the misogyny of Hardball’s Mr Tingles-up-the-leg. He claims that Sarah Palin has not done the homework, that she is stupid and has not taken any possible candidacy seriously. On which planet does Tingles reside? Of all of the potential candidates, only Sarah Palin has taken it right up to Ø on a variety of issues. Rather than being one who has not done her homework, Sarah has been busy on a number of fronts. On top of that she has had to fend off some extremely vicious attacks. Her family has suffered from the impact of those attacks. They also attack her youngest son, Trig, because he has Downs Syndrome. The most stupid of the attackers continue the claim that Trig belongs to Bristol, which of course is physically impossible, since Trig was born in April, and Bristol gave birth to her own son in December. Some DNC types simply do not know how to do Math.”
ZIP, at Weasel Zippers:
“Tingles: Sarah Palin Is ‘Profoundly Stupid’… Coming from a ‘man’ who hasn’t said anything intelligent for at least the last decade.”
Guy Benson, at's Tipsheet blog:
“Chris Matthews: Palin Is ‘Profoundly Stupid’... Biting and insightful commentary from Captain Legthrill, who once stated on air that the Panama Canal is located in Egypt... For those keeping score at home, Sarah Palin doesn't care about the following things: Reading, the economy, science, and ‘the world.’”
Mike, at That Mr. G Guy's Blog:
“Chris Matthews Has Proven His Profound Stupidity...”
Blue Collar Todd, at Blue Collar Philosophy:
“Chris Matthews truly hates independent thinking women who do not by into the Liberal propaganda media machine. Matthews hits a new low here in his sexist rant against Sarah Palin... Matthews has a history of sexist rants against Conservative women. Another target of his is Michele Bachmann. He has compared Palin to Muammar Qaddafi. Sometimes I think his hatred of Conservative women is so intense that he would burn them at the stake if he could get away with it, he will do his best to a political version of it if Palin and Bachmann run for President in 2012.”
Lindsey Boerma, at National Journal:
“Political gossip junkies, take heart—the much-anticipated showdown between Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin could finally be taking off.”
Merv Benson , at PrairiePundit:
“I still think she is a smart politician who is right on the issues and at some point that would show through the ink the left has been trying to splatter her with. I thought the personal attacks against her after the Arizona shooting were a real low blow, but the left sunk even lower by lambasting her for defending herself and then saying ‘it is not about you’ after they had been doing their worst to make it about her.”
