More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 315

“Waiting” Edition

AWR Hawkins, at Big Journalism:
“Matt Lauer, Chris Matthews, and Lester Holt thought for sure Palin was going down... Of course Matthews couldn’t wait to see Palin get what was coming to her for being a beautiful, decent, human who dares to champion faith, family, and America the exceptional... Now just imagine the 300 or so viewers who watch Matthews’ show leaning in toward their televisions, just waiting for Isikoff to drop the big news. And they’re waiting, and they’re wating, and they’re waiting … and Isikoff pretty much says ‘move on folks, nothing to see here.’ ... Enter Lester Holt... as liberal as the next guy at NBC, yet he has the nerve to try to sound neutral and, with a straight face, ask: ‘Could her foes try to use [the emails] to try and define her candidacy?’ ... I have an idea: How about we get 6,000 of Lauer’s emails, 6,000 of Matthews’, 6,000 of Holt’s, and just for fun, 6,000 of Isikoff’s? Although that’s a total of 24,000 emails, each man is only turning over a quarter of the number of emails that Palin was forced to make public. And there’s no need for them to be overly nervous about it. All we’ll be doing is following Holt’s lead to see if there’s something in those communiqués by which we might ‘define’ them.”
Michael Crawford, in a letter to the witch hunters at the Washington Post:
“Kindly let us know exactly where on your Web site we should go to participate in your ‘Let’s Get Obama’ project so we can interact with the objective mainstream media.”
“In a way, it may be a blessing in disguise that Sarah Palin’s 24,000+ emails were released because it vindicated her from many things (hunting from helicopters, etc.). Troopergate was huge during her time and grew longer legs in the 2008 presidential election. The gist of what really happened is that Sarah did tell the truth and that Walt Monegan lied; however, the press didn’t make that clear, did they?”
John Lott:
“One aspect of Sarah Palin's statements about Paul Revere has been ignored: that the British were trying to disarm Americans. It is an important point because it helps explain why Americans felt so strongly about the Second Amendment.”
David Bozeman, at The Land of the Free:
“After the 2008 election, Sarah Palin was advised by the media’s armchair political consultants to read more and brush up on foreign policy. Excuse me! Brush up on foreign policy? Did any pundit ever demand that Barack Obama brush up on foreign policy? Or economic policy? Where would America be today if someone had offered candidate Obama the works of Adam Smith and Milton Friedman? Palin, of course, recently offered a garbled account of Paul Revere’s ride, and Michele Bachmann placed Concord in the wrong state. But would either one of these so-called dim bulbs have removed a bust of Winston Churchill from the White House to the dissatisfaction of our staunchest allies in Britain, like you know who?”
James Shott, at Observations:
“Once again Sarah Palin has shown herself to be much brighter than her detractors give her credit for, and much more savvy than they are.”
Carrie Lukas, at NRO's The Corner:
“Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann have sparked much discussion about the state of women in politics... Undoubtedly, the media has treated these woman (particularly Palin) with a unique viciousness. Who else has had the media pore over every last e-mail written during their political life? ... Democrats rely on the idea that support for big government is synonymous with support for women. Indeed, just as they consistently go back to the well of ‘MediScare,’ they also return to the notion that cutting government spending is a ‘war on women.’ When it’s Bachmann, Palin, and other high-profile Republican women who respond to these charges, they are a little less likely to stick. Undoubtedly, the mainstream media is particularly hard on GOP women, but that’s because they know they are uniquely dangerous to the cause of big government.”
Jim Funkhouser, at Tea Party Tribune:
“Palin is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to put an adult with principles in the White House.”
Vincent Dorsett, at Patriot Action Network:
“The media has shown us that they are completely corrupted. Judges and Politicians can no longer be trusted. Is it hopeless? No way. But to clean up our nation we will need people of character, wisdom and integrity. We have them in our nation. It will take time but judges, politicians and media are changing as I write. Let's keep our eyes on the prize. Not just the White House but our nation as a whole. Last Nov. was a good start, lets keep it going. Someone like Sarah Palin would go a long way in turning things around.”
Clifton B, at Another Black Conservative:
“If Palin is trademarked, all those anti-Palin websites, tee shirts and other nasty things will be infringing on her trademark. Either they pay up or they shut down. If you are running for president, what better way to protect yourself and your image from the hoards of lefties who will try to smear you?”
The Last Refuge:
“Did you wonder why Palin and Bachmann split their friendship along what ‘appeared’ to be seemingly invisible ideological lines? Did you wonder why Bachmann hired Ed Rollins? Did you wonder why Rollins immediately attacked Palin? Did you wonder why Bachmann views Palin as a threat? She is. Palin would take all the Tea Party credibility from Bachmann in a minute and thereby destroy the best laid plans of Decepticon Ticketing.”
William A. Jacobson, at Legal Insurrection:
“I must have missed the part where Ed Rollins apologized...”
Noel Sheppard, at NewsBusters:
“It seems these days Bill Maher puts his foot in his mouth virtually every time he's in front of a camera. On Friday's ‘Real Time,’ the holier than thou host actually said liberals never talk about nationalizing the oil industry minutes before calling former Alaska governor Sarah Palin and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) a couple of ‘crazy’ ‘know nothings’ ‘who both get their historical facts wrong all the time...’ Really? I guess Maher missed a serious discussion on this very issue back in 2008 that began when Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) told Shell Oil president John Hofmeister during a May 23 House hearing that she wanted the government to take over the entire oil industry. The following month, a number of Democrats led by Congressman Maurice Hinchey (D-N.Y.) actually proposed nationalizing oil refineries... But according to Maher, ‘you never hear’ people on the left talk about this.”
Jim Campbell at Dancing Czars:
“It’s not known if Sarah will run in 2012, but it’s certain the democrats are scared to death of her. They can’t dig up any new dirt on her; she has already withstood the serial carpet bombings of her first campaign.”
Erin Haust, at True North:
Vincit qui se vincit - He who conquers himself conquers all... So reads the business card of Stephen K. Bannon, CEO of Victory Film Group and the brilliance behind the new documentary film chronicling the life of America's most talked about governor, Sarah Palin... More like a visual resume, the film doesn't play out like a strategic defense of Sarah Palin. It documents clearly the accomplishments of Palin's political career and outlines her success in defeating the Republican establishment, crony-capitalists and the giant oil companies that had been suffocating Alaskans' livelihoods for decades. With interesting twists, thoughtful commentary from famous conservative voices and witty humor injected throughout, the film highlights both the struggles that Palin has had to overcome and the incredible victories that have led her to be one of the most powerful conservative women of our time... Perhaps it can be said that this film is an opportunity for Sarah Palin to conquer herself in the hopes of conquering all.”
Exit Quote: David, from Psalm 71:
“Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. For You are my hope, O Lord God... For my enemies speak against me; And those who lie in wait for my life take counsel together... Let them be confounded and consumed who are adversaries of my life; Let them be covered with reproach and dishonor who seek my hurt. But I will hope continually, and will praise You yet more and more.”
