More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 330

“No Sugar” Edition

Ed Morrissey, at Hot Air:
“Margaret Thatcher distilled all the problems of central planning into this one quote: ‘Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money.’ Last night, Sarah Palin gave us a new version of the argument, saying that the sugar-daddy government — and President — has run out of sugar, and we need to cut off the supply of sucrose... The Obamas have fought a public battle against childhood obesity. It’s time that they start dealing with federal-government obesity. Time to cut off the sugar instead of accepting the idea that all we need is a trillion more donuts for government to finally start its diet.”
Rob, at Joshuapundit:
“Here we have that rare commodity, common sense from an uncommon and courageous leader.”
Rock, at The Time Has Come Today:
“What can I say about Sarah Palin? I don't know how, I don't know why, BUT... She is the one we have been waiting for. My God, just imagine. Somebody who has a servant's heart. It's scary. It's unknown. It has not happened in maybe 200 years. Someone who is not in the pockets of the Elite. Someone who knows what Jesus said... that the greatest among us is the one who serves the rest. They will try to destroy her. Of course... We must be vigilant. We surround them -- always keep that in your minds. This is our country. And to it we pledge our loyalty and our sacred honor.”
I am Coyote, at NW Republican:
“Is there honestly any debate anymore that Gov. Sarah Palin would have made a better president than Barack Obama?”
Dan Riehl, at Riehl World View:
“One reason why Palin may be perceived as thin-skinned by some is because so much of herself is invested in her politics. It was true of Reagan, as well. Recall how personally he took it during a dust up over a microphone... It may be hard to completely buy the servant's heart concept Palin occasionally invokes in these cynical times. But I do believe she has managed to prevent having her humanity - or, her self, if you prefer, stripped mostly out of her politics, as so many have. I suspect she sees government not only as a management function, but appreciates a custodial roll for it, as well. The faith that it is meant to uphold, or protect, being found in the Constitution. No doubt she also makes use of white papers and assorted analysis. But there should also come a time to look inward to one's experience and beliefs, beyond management or economic theories, to guide them. For short hand, perhaps we tend to call it common sense.”
Amy Siskind, via Twitter:
- ‘I Can Win’ - - damn straight - perfect timing after the boyz couldn't work together on debt ceiling!”
Adrienne Ross, at Motivation Truth:
Newsweek, scheduled to hit the stands tomorrow with Governor Palin on the cover and an in-depth article inside, has become available early online. Governor Palin makes it clear during this interview that she believes she can defeat President Obama in a national election... Everywhere she goes people are begging her to run, to make the sacrifice, to do what's necessary to put this country back on the right track. From her own words, I deduce that the only thing that can stop her from taking this all-important, life-changing step is an outright plea from her family not to run. She suggested in this article, however, that her family isn't asking that of her, and that they understand that it costs to do the right thing, to make an impact, to effect change. I, therefore, make the prediction I have made for almost three years now: Governor Palin is running for President of the United States. I add the prediction that the announcement is coming soon.”
T. D., at Terrance this is stupid stuff:
“Newsweek has a surprisingly fair article on Governor Palin. Hardly any snark and seemingly nothing made up. That's one at Time, one at the New York Times, and now one at Newsweek. Hmm.”
J. Shaw, at Shaw's Blog:
“Sarah Palin as Newsweek cover girl — again... This part of Capehart's article is a joke. The public takes a candidate for president seriously by the their positions on the issues. The only president who ‘looked’ presidential since IKE was Ronald Reagan. Reagan was always in a suit in the Oval Office. Out of the office he wore jeans and cowboy hats on his ranch. .....Can you imagine anything less presidential in the Oval Office than Obama is his baketball shorts, shoes off, size 18 bare feet up on the desk. Or Bill Clinton with his suitcoat on but no pants because Monica was there. I am sure President Palin will be dressed for success as she sits the the Oval Office.”
Meredith Jessup, at The Blaze:
“I have a sneaking feeling his fashion critique has more to do with a personal disdain for Palin‘s politics than any substantive critique of the former Alaska governor’s image. Or perhaps Capehart is simply pining for the past days of mandatory pantsuit uniforms for female political contenders.”
Kathy Shaidle, at Five Feet Of Fury:
“Please note that Jonathan Capehart, self-appointed spokesman for what average ‘folks’ ‘want to be able to envision,’ is a gay black man who lives in the Beltway. As well as a professional journalist who clearly hadn’t heard of the big intramural controversy surrounding Palin’s first Newsweek cover, which as the Daily Caller noted, featured a photo of her stolen from another magazine. And you know full well what all that makes him? That’s right: Your moral and intellectual superior!”
Matt Lewis, at The Daily Caller:
“Is the fact that Palin isn’t donning a traditional ladies’ pantsuit any different than male politicians who pose sans business suit? Jon Huntsman, for example, walks around in cords and jean jackets — and people seem to think it’s endearing…”
Matt Lewis, at The Daily Caller:
“While speculation about Palin’s future is clearly the most immediately newsworthy component, the long-term story might just be how the new Palin film, ‘The Undefeated,’ is helping transform her narrative (as I suggested it might). Ultimately, of course, that could impact her decision regarding whether or not to run. After all, it’s probably fair to say that Newsweek isn’t a pro-Palin outlet, and yet, this was a fairly flattering portrayal of Palin. And that seems to be largely based on points raised in the new film... Despite her popularity as governor (and her impressive record of success), Palin has gotten little credit for her pre-McCain popularity and accomplishments. Until now.”
Lisa, at America is Conservative:
“New Sarah Palin Movie... Are you going to see it? I am.”
John Sexton, at Verum Serum:
“Stupid! Dimwitted Bimbo Sarah Palin refers to the www as the ‘internets’ just like the idiot Bush did in 2004... Check out this direct quote from Sarah Palin: ‘We do have to make sure that there are computers in a computer age inside classrooms and that they work and that there's internets that are actually -- there are Internet connections that actually function...’ So that proves Sarah Palin is a dimwitted bimbo and is unqualified to hold any office whatsoever. Except that Sarah Palin didn't say it. It was said by the smartest President in the history of history... Funny how the establishment media that jumped on Bush in 2004 for sounding as they asserted uneducated but don't say a boo or peep about Obama making the exact same gaffe.”
Exit Quote: Steven Wright:
“I went to the bank and asked to borrow a cup of money. They said, ‘What for?’ I said, ‘I'm going to buy some sugar.’”
