More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 295

"Fearless" Edition

Pink Floyd Fearless by Lookdesigns
Lloyd Marcus, Tea Party activist:
“Nothing frustrates me more than GOP candidates walking on eggs cautious not to offend or anger the despicable, lying, agenda driven and evil liberal media. Why should we show respect for characterless people who are committed to lying and putting a negative spin on everything we say and do? The liberal media’s mission is to politically ‘kill’ the tea party. Get it? Sarah Palin gets it. Palin does not give a rat’s behind about what the liberal media thinks of her. On numerous occasions, without the slightest hint of reservation or FEAR, Palin has attacked Obama ‘the man’; his lies, his anti-American associations, his socialist agenda, his assault on our freedom, liberty and culture and his horrific record, thus far. Thank You Sarah Palin! God bless you! I realize I sound like a broken record, but I can not express the following point strongly enough. To beat Obama and ‘his media’ in 2012, our candidate MUST embrace Palin’s aggressive fearless battle plan.”
Tony Pierce, at Top of the Ticket:
“Piper Palin, even at the ripe old age of 10, is skeptical about the media. Who can blame her?”
R.G. Yoho, at
“In at least one of her appearances, Palin was wearing a necklace with the six-sided, Star of David around her neck. This wasn’t just a jewelry choice to compliment her clothing; this was a political statement... Gov. Palin is much smarter than most of her detractors, and many of those in the public, who are quickly willing to dismiss her and accept the assessments of her enemies, who clearly dominate the media... By wearing this Star of David, Gov. Sarah Palin has shown herself to be a proud supporter of Israel. It has also revealed, just one more time, the intelligence and moral clarity that can still be found in Alaska and much of Middle America, but is sadly lacking in the Oval Office.”
Shawna Thomas and Alex Moe, of NBC News:
“So it seems like Palin’s tour is not only about seeing historic sites and handing out pocket Constitutions, but also checking in on her team of Mama Grizzlies.”
Ann Althouse, Obama voter:
“Politico says: ‘Sarah Palin's bus tour leaves GOP cold.’ ... How far down on the list did Politico go to get a GOP politico to give the quote it wanted for an article disparaging Palin's bus tour? (And I love the locution ‘whose state hosted.’ Americans have a right to travel from state to state. We don't need the state to extend any invitation or hospitality.) ... Conclusion: The evidence in Politico's article is best seen as evidence of Politico's desire to undermine Sarah Palin.”
Doug Powers, at The Powers That Be:
“The level of desperation to criticize anything about Palin is so high that this is almost like an SNL skit, except funnier.”
Amy Siskind, liberal feminist, at The New Agenda:
“Palin has faced a steady barrage of sexism since 2008, including yesterday when a sign was posted on her bus referring to her as a media ‘whore.’ In fact, women in power are frequently referred to as ‘sluts, bitches and whores.’ Unambiguously, sexism hurts female candidates. Which is why it is so important for Palin to continue to stand up against and smack down the low-lifes who perpetrate sexism and misogyny, by running despite them!”
Tennessee Guerilla Women, also liberal feminists:
“Women playing with the boyz at the highest level of politics in the male-dominated USA is a brand new experience. Love her or hate her, Palin is making history and breaking down barriers.”
tomtflorida, at
“I submit that the media is capitalizing on Michele Bachmann’s prominence in an attempt to supplant Sarah Palin as the queen of conservatism. By indirectly promoting Bachmann, which they do by not going at her with both guns blazing, the goal is to knock Palin from her perch and replace her with someone they do not lie awake at night exasperating over. Now don’t get me wrong, I greatly admire Michele Bachmann... However, within the tea party movement, as admired as she is, Bachmann just doesn’t quite have the star power of Sarah Palin. Sure, she’s a prolific fundraiser and her negatives are nowhere near Palin’s, but at the end of the day, unless something significant happens, she’s going to have her hands full trying to unseat Barack Obama. And the media knows this, hence their willingness to play her against Sarah Palin.”
Jim Hoft, at Gateway Pundit:
“This is why they hate her… She can bash Obama’s job-killing policies while she pets a lobster.”
Jeff Graham, at Mayor Graham's View:
“The party poobahs and elders are unhappy with Sarah Palin's bus tour because she is not engaged in ‘party building.’ Has anyone noticed that the numbers who care about parties diminish exponentially the further you get from places like Albany County and the District of Columbia. While the process favors those with organizations, those George Will, bowtie, white-shoe-in-Summer type Republicans a re poh-pohing a bus tour that doesn't include county chairs and party operatives... Those people have already latched on to the conventional (Romney) style candidates.”
Jeffrey Lord, hyperventilating at The American Spectator:
“It's safe to say the battle of 2012 is on.”
Rush Limbaugh:
“The media, for two years has been trying to Palinize Palin -- they've been trying to destroy her -- and what's happening here is she's turning the tables on them and she's Palinizing them, and the Republican Ruling Class is furious... It's fascinating to watch this Palin stuff. They hate her, they despise her, they are frustrated that they haven't destroyed her. They can't believe she's still smiling. They can't believe she's still drawing crowds. They can't believe that she's enjoying life. They can't believe her family is still together. They can't believe her husband hasn't walked out on her. They can't believe any of this. Folks, you know this as well as I do: When they set out to destroy you, they mean just that -- and Palin's not playing along with the script. She's not acting destroyed. She's not asking for forgiveness. She's not begging them to leave her alone. She's not changing in order to make them lighten up or anything. She's just looking at 'em and smiling.”
B. Daniel Blatt, at GayPatriot:
“Sarah Palin did more to bring down corrupt politicians in her own party before she became governor than Barack Obama has done in his party, indeed in both parties, in his entire political career.”
Tim Stanley, at The Telegraph (UK):
“It was in those introspective speeches in little towns in Ohio and Pennsylvania that she elevated conservatism from philosophy to biography. Palin described holding Trig in her arms and realising that ‘Every child is beautiful before God and dear to him for their own sake. And as for our own child … he is all the more precious because he is vulnerable.’ This is Palin’s greatest appeal, her ability to humanise conservatism. And it’s not the hard-edged, boisterous humanity of Rush Limbaugh or Glen Beck. It is the earnest, maternal common-sense and compassion of a mother... There are good, nonpartisan reasons for everyone to admire Sarah Palin. She governed Alaska well and earned her independent spurs by taking on the oil companies. She has the rare distinction of being an American female politician who didn’t get where she is thanks to family or wealth. She is important because she has shown a generation of middle-class women that you don’t have to be a liberal feminist to enter politics. The only female role-models out there right now are Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton. Sarah Palin has helped integrate housewives and hockey moms into the political process.”
