More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 322

“Is it real, or is it Meme-O-Left?” Edition

AWR Hawkins, at Big Hollywood:
“Sarah Palin is a thorn in the flesh of leftists. Although they hurl their best invectives at her, and go through her emails, and make fun of her son Trig, and mock the fact that she went to college in flyover country, she still emerges as ‘The Undefeated’ and they come out looking (and sounding) like a group of embittered sorority girls. That’s why every failed attack on her is simply followed by another more direct and more ruthless one, all of which are aimed at accomplishing what none has yet been able to accomplish: eliminating Palin as a viable political force. The latest attack is an anti-Palin propaganda film by British filmmaker Nick Broomfield... What’s strange about all this is that Palin had an 88% approval rating from the people of Alaska during the very time Bitney and Green claim she was aloof and not listening... Therefore, concerning the Broomfield propaganda film, I guess we’re left with the choice of either believing a left-leaning filmmaker who’s out to ‘deliver the goods’ on Palin or the people of Alaska, who gave her a thumbs-up on job performance at ratio of almost 9 to 1. For me, that’s not a hard choice at all.”
AWR Hawkins, at Big Government:
“Last night in Pella, Iowa... ‘The Undefeated’ was finally premiered... For those who are paying attention, the setting for the premiere as well as the guest list both serve as a microcosm of what President Palin’s White House will look like.”
Joshua Green, at left-leaning The Atlantic:
“The event had the air of a revival; supporters had come from as far away as Dallas and were rapturous at the sight of their shepherd... Palin appears to have come to Pella primarily to support Bannon's film and cheer on her supporters. She didn't drop any overt hints about the presidency that I picked up on, besides pledging to devote ‘110 percent’ to Iowa if she did run. Even so, crowd members kept approaching her and urging her to run, and after seeing the film, those feelings seemed only to intensify. There can be little doubt that if she does decide to run, Palin won't lack for committed Iowans. Several that I spoke to were skipping the barbecue to attend Tea Party caucus training sessions.”
JoshuaGreen, via Twitter:
“Palin crowd is probably 1000, I'd guess:
Kathie Obradovich, at the Des Moines Register:
“I joined the horde to walk a half-block from the Pella Opera House, where Sarah Palin attended a screening of a documentary about her, ‘The Undefeated.’ ... Palin assured some others along the way that if she runs for president, she would run in Iowa... Craig Bergman, who has been traveling with the Iowa Tea Party bus tour, said he’s sure she’s going to run. Before seeing the movie, he said, Palin was his No. 2 choice after Ron Paul. After the movie, he said, ‘She’s my No. 1.’ Bergman said he was speaking for himself, not the tea party.”
Patrick S. Adams, at Patrick's World USA:
“Sarah Palin came to Pella, IA yesterday and the love affair was mutual.”
Kevin Scholla, at Palin Twibe:
“We still don't know whether Sarah Palin will run for president in 2012, but if she does, ‘The Undefeated’ may just be her secret weapon... The most incredible testimony into the character of Sarah Palin is her stunning decision to give up a six figure position because she felt that would be the best move for the state. Sarah and her husband Todd were not wealthy people. Still, she did what was right instead of what was easy. Bannon showcases numerous examples of stories like this that were rarely reported on when Palin was running for Veep. Instead the media focused on her clothes, her accent, and really anything else they could use as a tool to break the Barracuda. Three years later, it is clear they failed.”
Steve Holland, of Reuters:
“Palin has carefully left the door open to a campaign. Her appearance in Iowa was likely to encourage those who think the former Alaska governor still might jump into a wide-open race.”
Tony Lee, at Human Events:
“Barack Obama vs. Sarah Palin. It is a title fight many want to see in 2012... At Alcoa Davenport Works Factory in Bettendorf, Iowa, Obama discussed manufacturing’s role in an economy he is steering toward bankruptcy and insolvency. The buzz, though, was a little to the west in Pella, where Palin attended the premiere of The Undefeated, a documentary directed and produced, independently of Palin, by Stephen K. Bannon, who said he made the film because he saw it as an opportunity to turn a profit, as a capitalist venture... The screening of the movie was sold out, as was the barbecue held after the screening, where, according to various estimates, more than a thousand people showed up.”
Scott Conroy, via Twitter:
“I gave Palin chance to tell the organize4palin folks to stop & go home, instead she encouraged them. Would be odd if shes decided not to run”
Bonney Kapp, of See-BS News:
“Conservative muckraker Andrew Breitbart said he believes former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will throw her hat in the ring for the Republican nomination for president. ‘My guess is yes,’ Breitbart said when asked by CBS News Tuesday if he thought Palin would run... ‘She represents something defiant and fearless and righteous and decent,’ he explained, and said the two hour pro-Palin movie ‘represents vindication’ from her detractors. But it's not just vindication from the so-called mainstream media. Breitbart called out ‘establishment Republicans,’ accusing them of sitting on the sidelines, ‘watching [Palin] be devoured because they don't want to see her succeed.’”
Andrew Breitbart, via Twitter:
“1st time I spent time w Palins last night. Divide between real & media's distorted persona is more grotesque than I thought.”
Matt Lewis, at The Daily Caller:
“I think one has to understand the spirit of Alaska to understand Palin. It is a vast and untamed land, and this serves to foster a culture of rugged individualism that is at odds with the politically-correct values that permeate places like Washington, D.C. and New York City. This cultural disconnect has much to do with why Palin is viewed as a common-sense breath of fresh air by some Americans — and as an evil bumpkin by others. I also think gender also has something to do with the level of hatred. Clearly, the left viewed Palin as an existential threat, and pulled out all the stops to try to stop her from smashing that glass ceiling. They accused her of wanting to ban books, they hacked her personal emails and posted them on the internet, they said Trig wasn’t her son…This is pretty low and despicable stuff.”
Matt Lewis, via Politico:
“Regardless of who said it, or who people think said it, at some point, truth takes a back seat to hearsay, especially when it comes to quoting (and misquoting) the words of politicians... Fortunately for Palin, her real words are finally getting a second act.”
The Radio Patriot:
“There is evil around us. Dark, raging, fang-baring evil. The kind of malevolent foulness that gives off its own stench, nightmares and spine shivers. It walks (prowls) among us, taking many shapes. It reveals itself in those possessed of a hatred for all that is beautiful, wholesome and good. It is satanic. And it is real… Witness this (from The Blaze): When Sarah Palin showed up in Pella, IA to attend a screening of her own documentary, ‘The Undefeated,’ she hadn’t seen all the footage beforehand. So when the film opened with people calling her ‘slutty,’ ‘scary,’ and a ‘bit**,’ she was a little taken aback. ‘This is the first that I’ve seen much of that. It kind of takes you back,’ she told The Hollywood Reporter (THR). ‘It makes you want to reach out to some of these folks and say, What’s your problem? And what was the problem? And what is the problem?’... Glenn Beck this morning on his radio program repeated Thomas Jefferson’s words: ‘I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.’ Indeed.”
Exit Quote: Proverbs 11:3, in The New American Bible:
“The honesty of the upright guides them; the faithless are ruined by their duplicity.”
