More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 323

“The Chase” Edition

Mark Whittington, at Associated Content:
“The merry chase that Palin has been leading much of the American people, especially the media, on reminds one of the old fashioned description of courtship, ‘A man chases a woman until she catches him.’ Indeed, Palin has been behaving like the very proper lady she is when it comes to political wooing, not saying yes or no, not showing too much leg (to use a metaphor), and giving just enough encouragement to keep everyone interested. In the not too distant future, when the excitement has been stoked up to a fever pitch, there will come the big announcement, which will likely be in a venue and manner that will be unique and creative. Then the hopeful volunteers who have been organizing in various parts of the country will get to work and the campaign will begin in earnest. At least that is the scenario, which bespeaks of a plan hatched by someone with the guile of Sun Tzu.”
Bristol Palin, to Jerry Penacoli:
“What's talked about at our dinner table is going to stay there.”
Allahpundit, at Hot Air:
“Sure sounds like there has been a decision, that Bristol’s heard it from mom herself, and that the family’s agreed to stay mum until the right moment. And since it’s hard to believe that BP would say she’s ‘absolutely’ in favor of mom running if she knew for a fact that her decision was not to run, I think we can guess what Sarah’s decision must be.”
Stacy McCain, at The Other McCain:
“I’m feeling pretty doggone Undefeated, you might say”
Jelayne Sessler, at Defending Sarah Palin:
“I’m going to go out on a limb here and declare that the ‘Lamestream Media’ is out of ammo. To their own demise they have managed to keep Sarah Palin in the public eye, turn the stomachs of many of their devout listeners and most outstandingly; they’ve managed to make Sarah Palin stronger than ever before. Right after we welcome President Palin to the White House on Vindication Day, I mean, Inauguration day 2013, I say we throw a freedom party and invite Rock N' Roll artist, Pat Benatar to sing... Hit Me With Your Best Shot!
Nico Hines, via Twitter:
“Team Palin held discussions tonight with the Iowa Tea Party over organising a united bus tour 'llbeback”
Editorial, in the Creston News Advertiser:
“Palin was signing buttons, books and other memorabilia left and right, at which point I was able to hand her my column that I had written about her. Confused, she looked up for an explanation, a request I was more than happy to oblige. I introduced myself and shook her hand, explaining that I wrote the opinion column for the Creston News Advertiser where I worked at as a staff reporter. ‘I wrote about your resume and your accomplishments,’ I said. ‘I tried to set the truth straight, just like your video.’ She looked me in the eyes and thanked me. Palin signed her autograph and wrote ‘keep the faith’ and ‘thank you’ beneath it.”
Merv, at PrairiePundit:
“She may still jump in the race and many think she has a shot if she does.”
Dr. Bob Leonard, at KNIA/KRLS:
“Former Republican Vice Presidential candidate, and possible future presidential candidate Sarah Palin was in Pella Tuesday. Accompanying her was an elite team of bodyguards. Who are they? What do they do? How do they do it, and what do they watch for in the crowd? Dr. Bob Leonard speaks with Mark Spicer and Chris Kyle with Craft International...”
Mr.L's Tavern:
“Why Sarah Palin & conservatives are Undefeated. The Undefeated could've been called The Underestimated.”
Steve Markowitz, at EnduringSense:
“On June 10 we posted an article titled ‘Palin Derangement Syndrome.’ That day the state of Alaska released over 24,000 pages of Palin email messages from between December 2006 and September 2008. The news media has since been scavenging through them attempting to dig up dirt on Palin. Guess what? There isn’t any dirt. According to Louise Radnofsky of the Wall Street Journal, the ‘emails to and from Sarah Palin have so far produced no major revelations about her tenure as Alaska governor. But they’ve painted a behind-the-scenes portrait of her as focused on her state, with few close ties to the national Republican Party or its key issues.’ The only surprise for the Left from the Palin emails is that she is what she presents. We have heard but a whimper from the Leftist press on this reality. The Plain email affair raises an interesting question: Does anyone believe Barack Obama’s past could stand up to such scrutiny?”
Austin Bureau, of the Dallas Morning News:
“Such is Sarah Palin’s star power that a jubilant crowd and an army of paparazzi lined the street for a noncampaign event by a noncandidate attending a non-Hollywood movie premiere.”
Fire Andrea Mitchell:
“Sarah Palin is the idiot, Michele Bachmann is a moron, but Obama is brilliant. So brilliant in fact he doesn’t even know what year it is, how many states there are in America, or even if he awarded a Medal of Honor to someone who died five years ago. Obama is so brilliant in fact that he doesn’t even know the age of his oldest daughter Malia Obama.”
Brad Jackson, at The New Ledger:
“On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Matt Lewis from the Daily Caller to discuss his new book, The Quotable Rogue about Sarah Palin...”
Bernie Quigley, at The Hill's Pundits Blog:
“AFP reports that Iran secretly tested ‘nuclear-capable missiles’: ‘Iran has carried out secret tests of ballistic missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload in breach of U.N. resolutions, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Wednesday ... Hague's comments came a day after Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards said they had fired 14 missiles in an exercise, one of them a medium-range weapon capable of striking Israel or U.S. targets in the Gulf.’ But will Obama, in Sarah Palin’s phrase, ‘toughen up’? It is the right thing to do but of course it would be murderously immoral to do so now for apparent political reasons. But then that has not stopped them before (‘Arab Spring,’ Libya?). Nevertheless, it is work that needs to be done and if Obama doesn’t do it President Sarah Palin will. Her political intelligence and instincts are the best. She speaks clearly on this issue and did so when all others were silent.”
Exit Quote: Sun Tzu, from The Art of War:
“One who sets the entire army in motion to chase an advantage will not attain it.”
