More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 339

“Monster” Edition

Patrick S. Adams, at Unsheathed:
“After her return to Alaska, Palin was hit with the frivolous ethics complaints, which were filed by malcontents, fueled by the agenda driven Alaska Bloggers and picked up on way too easily by the mainstream media. This was all part of an overall smear campaign designed to destroy this woman., which she short circuited by resigning her governorship and sticking it to the media and the ankle biters... This only fueled the growth of the pro Palin movement. Supporters started blogs and websites when they saw Palin under attack. The Left and the media have basically created their own monster and now they struggle to contain it as it pulls the spitting high tension wires down on its way to the city of cronyism and socialism that she is about to destroy. There are hundreds of pro Palin blogs and websites across the internet. See if any of the other candidates have that kind of a following.”
Henry D'Andrea, at Politicons:
“The Politico Sarah Palin hit-piece writer, Andy Barr, is leaving Politico, to… join the Democratic Party in Arizona. Surprise? No.”
Marooned in Marin:
“So he's simply moving from their propaganda unit to the Party's front office, in Arizona... Seems like moving into the Democrat Party apparatus has happened before with Politico alumni... Barr's anti-Palin bias was so bad he was caught manufacturing facts about the former Alaska Governor's ‘Don't Retreat, Reload’ phrase. How's that for Andy Barr checking his bias at the Politico door, John Harris? But noooooooooooooo! The lib Journ-O-Listers will tell you they're ‘objective,’ and only Fox News is biased. Right! ”
Tarpon, at Tarpon's Swamp:
“I bet we can pretty much guess what his job will be.”
John Nolte, at Big Journalism:
“The good news is that Politico’s Andy Barr is now going to work out in the open against Palin and the Right, as opposed to what he’s been doing since 2008, and that’s the exact same thing at Politico under the failed disguise of an objective journalist. One wonders if all he had to do in order to get his Democratic Party job was either staple his Politico work to the application or simply write ‘I work for Politico’ when asked for a list of experience in promoting the Leftist cause... Good luck and good riddance, but the real problem here isn’t Barr, it’s Politico — the most dishonest, agenda-driven, and biased outlet on the Internet.”
P.J. Gladnick, at NewsBusters:
“Did Bristol accidentally let the cat out of the bag... when Jay Leno asked if she thinks her mother would be a good president and Bristol replied: ‘Yeah, I think she WILL.’”
Mark America:
“As every hunter, warrior and veteran will know, sometimes, you must simply wait for your shot. You may only get one shot, so there’s no point in rushing it, as it will frequently cause you to miss your target anyway. I suspect this is part of what is guiding Governor Palin’s thinking. After all, you don’t enter an election with the intention of running. You enter an election with the idea of winning, and it’s best to pick your moment accordingly. I expect that if Governor Palin is going to enter the race, she will do so when she thinks most advantageous, because if she’s going to run, she knows she will want every possible advantage she can gain from timing. Remember, Governor Palin is a good deal more shrewd than the media narrative admits, and while unique, nobody is more conscious of the benchmarks and the time-lines involved. We trust her to run the country, so I’m certain we can trust her to pick her own moment.”
Tony Pierce, at the LAT's Top of the Ticket:
“Sarah Palin continues to remain popular among Republicans, many of whom would vote for her as president, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll released Thursday.”
International Business Times:
“Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney still leads the 2012 Republican nominee race, but the person who polled second is a bit of a surprise: Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin... The fact that Palin can garner so much support despite not officially running for president speaks to both Palin's ability to remain on voters' minds and also underscores how unenthused, at this relatively early stage of the campaign, Republican voters continue to feel about the existing field.”
Matt Lewis, at The Daily Caller:
“Maybe the new Palin movie should have been titled The Underestimated?”
John Rash, at the Minnesota Star Tribune:
“Like most documentaries, the new film about Sarah Palin that premiered in June in Minneapolis is ostensibly about the past... Of course we all know "The Undefeated" is really about the future... Barely before viewers can get their first handful of popcorn, pop culture artists paint a picture of the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate that startles in its intensity. A quick-cut collection of cut-downs from movie and music stars, comedians and others attacking Palin politically and personally are remarkable, even in the context of today's coarse culture.”
NaLa, at Praying 4 Common Sense:
“With the release of the documentary film about Sarah Palin, ‘The Undefeated’, Americans are taking a second look at the Alaska governor - and they like what they see.”
Mark America, at US for Palin:
“The media hounds attempted to destroy her family. The gossip-mongers and rumor mills ran daily stories about how their marriage was allegedly on the brink, or how a child did this or that, but in the end, what we know is that the Palins seem stronger for all the barbs and brutalities to which they’ve been subjected. In and amongst the reams of paper and the terabytes of data dedicated to their familial destruction lies the single thread of truth necessary to repel it all: They love one another. What more do they need to defeat the lies, distortions, and all the sorry rest of it emanating from the press? I contend that they have it all. Everything that matters, in fact.”
Stephen Smoot, at The Potomac Highlands Conservative:
“I would say that at the end of the day, we will see Palin as nominee and Perry as the running mate.”
Jefferson Tea Party Patriots:
“Was the terrorist in Norway actually taking orders from Sarah Palin? Or is this just a something we dreamed up? No matter. Until Sarah Palin is absolved, we consider her the mastermind behind these attacks and we demand a full investigation, right after she’s sentenced.”
Exit Quote: Friedrich Nietzsche, from Beyond Good and Evil:
“He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee.”
