More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 319

“Something Big” Edition

Anthony Martin, at
“By now most informed Americans are aware of what has become known as ‘Palin Derangement Syndrome,’ a malady that afflicts most of the mainstream media and their progressive cohorts... In the midst of such lamentable lunacy Palin apparently has begun to manipulate the media... This effect, an outgrowth of the scientific concept of ‘cause and effect,’ is based upon Palin's deliberate and calculated feed of targeted information to the media while withholding other information the news hounds so desperately desire. This writer designates the phenomenon as ‘The Palin Effect.’ But make no mistake about Palin. She is not through, nor is she in hiding to ‘reassess her desire to run.’ Something big is on the horizon, and the much-publicized film about her, which will premier in Iowa--a key campaign state--this Tuesday, is designed to usher Palin back into the forefront of news, allowing her to seize the nature of the discourse and set the agenda. Early reports of the film indicate that it is will represent a major coup for the Palin camp--a brilliant and well-produced documentary explaining to the public what, exactly, makes Sarah Palin tick.”

“It’s probably too much to hope for that Michele Bachmann will order Ed Rollins to serve as Sarah & Todd’s chauffeur while in Iowa, isn’t it?”
Ian Lazaran, at Conservatives 4 Palin (Updated):
“Stop And DON’T Go to Pella, Iowa If You Do Not Have a Ticket to the Movie and Barbeque... You won’t be allowed to attend either event if you do not have a ticket. Yes, I recognize that I posted around ten posts on this subject encouraging people to go to Pella without a ticket but it appears that I missed the purpose of the event. The entire purpose of the event was to keep things local and low-key and limit it primarily to Iowans and Pellans. I was operating off my own conjecture. So if you made plans to go to Pella without a ticket, cancel those plans right now. I apologize for any confusion.”
Tony Lee, at Human Events:
“Palin’s message to her potential rivals seems to be ‘not so fast, my friend.’... Palin’s message to her potential competition in the GOP and Obama once again seems to be, ‘Game On!’”
Alex Pappas, at The Daily Caller:
“Sarah Palin is going to Iowa next week. The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee who is considering a bid for president in 2012 will visit the first in the nation caucus state Tuesday for the premiere screening of The Undefeated, a film that chronicles her rise from obscurity to national prominence... As the 2012 Republican presidential field starts to solidify, Palin’s moves are closely being watched, especially when she visits a state such as Iowa, that plays such a large role in the early stages of the nominating process.”
Henry D'Andrea, at Politicons:
“Let the games begin.”
The Freedomist:
“What will the twittering left do after thousands, if not millions, of people see the Palin Movie, The Undefeated? What will the MSM do with their hate-filled anti-Palin rants... Perhaps they will have to switch narrative... It will be a tough sell to the American people once they’ve seen this Palin Movie and they find out... that she stood up to corporate hacks, that she stared down her own fat cat party elites, that she risked everything to stand for the principles of American Freedom... We at The Freedomist suspect the twittering left, the MSM party hacks, and the GOP blue bloods will soon discover, much to their fear and consternation, that Sarah Palin is a woman of substance and courage who will fight the hard fight against the greatest of foes in the interest of American Freedom and the hard working Americans who live these values every day. The elites of the left and the right, and the profiteering opportunists will soon discover that when Sarah Palin says….GAME ON…..she means it like no one else. ”
Merv, at Prairie Pundit:
“The media ignores his gaffes because they do not fit in the liberal narrative that Obama is a genius and Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann are ditsy broads. Liberals tend to think that all liberals are smart and that if conservatives were smart they would be liberals too.”
Rob, at Joshuapundit:
“The media was full of stories about how Sarah Palin has suspended her bus tour... Here's the real, scandalous truth -- wait for it -- she got called for jury duty... After all the snide headlines referring to Governor Palin as a quitter, I have yet to see one retraction from anyone. Not one... They remind me of small puppies who haven't been house trained yet, peeing in a corner and hoping no one notices. In their entire lifetimes, none of them will ever accomplish even remotely close to what Governor Palin already has. But then again, none of them will likely ever enjoy the happiness she has in her own accomplishments or in her personal life either.”
Tom Tillison, at Florida Political Press:
“Another poll out on the 2012 presidential race, yet another slam on Sarah Palin... Naturally, the media... seemed to miss entirely an Associated Press/Gfk Poll showing a continued rise in support for Sarah Palin.”
Rich Vail, at The Vail Spot:
“What's really a shame is that the McCain Campaign in 2008 didn't give more publicity to Mrs. Palin during the last 2 months prior to the election. That gave the media time to create a narrative (see JournoList to see just how much they collaborated)... It's a shame that the GOP allowed the liberal MSM to control the message-image of Mrs. Palin, that's yet another thing about the GOP that I'll not soon forgive.”
Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, President of Iceland:
“I sensed in her a fundamental political capability, a political nature that you either have or you don't. It's like a musical quality... That she has taken herself from an elected official in Alaska to become one of the most influential forces in politics in a matter of years demonstrates her ability.”
Sharon, at Books To The Ceiling:
The Quotable Rogue encapsulates Palin’s thoughts on such salient issues as health care, taxes, and government spending, the right to life, climate change, what it means for a politician to serve the people, and more... While no two people can agree on every thing, I found I do agree with her thoughts on many things. Reading these quotes I came to feel that she is a down to earth, real type person, one I might enjoy meeting... It is a quick read at about 180 pages, and one I will recommend.”
Paul Kengor, at
“Biden wasn’t shy about issuing judgments on life throughout the 2008 campaign. He publicly took a swipe at Sarah Palin, who chose to bring to term a Down syndrome baby.”
Illinois Review:
“If T-shirt and presidential product sales predict the future in American politics, 2012 will be a Palin vs. Obama race... Sarah Palin has yet to declare her candidacy, but Palin-themed merchandise already makes up a whopping 66 percent of Obama challenger sales and 34 percent of all 2012 election product sales. Mitt Romney made it official several weeks ago but his product sales make up a small percentage of Obama’s challengers at 3 percent of election product sales. Michele Bachmann is also in Palin’s shadow, with products contributing to only 1 percent of election product sales.”
Exit Quote:Sun Tzu, from The Art of War:
“He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot, will be victorious... Hence that general is skilful in attack whose opponent does not know what to defend; and he is skilful in defense whose opponent does not know what to attack.”
