More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 341

“Into the waters” Edition

Craig Robinson, at The Iowa Republican:
“By returning to Iowa in September, Palin will not just be dipping her toes into Iowa’s presidential waters, she’s basically jumping right in. Earlier this month, Palin told Sean Hannity that August or September might be the right time to launch a presidential campaign. Palin’s visit will also coincide with the pay-per-view release of the ‘The Undefeated’ documentary across the county. Announcing her candidacy during a Tea Party event in Iowa seems like the perfect setting for Palin if she is actually going to run in 2012. The event will focus on rallying people to take action in what may very well be the most pivotal moment in our nation’s history. Having fought corruption and the political machine in Alaska, Palin can not only can talk the talk about doing what is in the best interest of the people, but she has walked the walk in her life and political career.”
Caucus Insider, at The Des Moines Register:
“Palin has not made the typical moves toward running, such as frequent visits to early voting states. But in polls that include her name, she often tops many of the announced Republican candidates.”
Patrick S. Adams, at Patrick's World USA:
“If the public can be convinced to look at Governor Palin's record and see who she really is without the media filter and the caricaturing of her, it's possible to get enough people to feel comfortable enough to vote against Obama much the same way as Reagan was able to create enough of a comfort level with the ‘there you go again’ moment he had in the debate with Carter. So, when people tell you that Sarah Palin can’t win in 2012, don’t listen. Barack Obama is so much of a disaster that the American people should be more willing to take the chance on Palin rather than go with the certainty that Obama will continue to destroy the economy for another four years.”
Byron York, at The Washington Examiner:
“Poll: Romney weakening... Among Republicans who describe themselves as moderate or liberal, Romney actually trails Giuliani, 14 percent to 16 percent, and is tied with Palin.”
Nate Silver, at The NYT's FiveThirtyEight:
“An average of the seven most recent polls of Republican voters (the six contained in the Real Clear Politics average plus the Economist / YouGov poll) finds Mr. Romney with the lead, with an average of 22 percent of the vote. After that, there’s essentially a four-way tie between Ms. Bachmann (13 percent), Sarah Palin (13 percent), Mr. Perry (12 percent) and Rudolph W. Giuliani (11 percent in the polls in which he is included). Herman Cain’s momentum appears to have faded, while Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty are now often polling in the low rather than the high single digits.”
Mike Sheeran, Sarah Palin's uncle:
“Sarah wanted me to tell him that, if he were to declare, he should declare here at Bentwood.”
Meghan Malloy, at Soros-funded The Iowa Independent:
“Though conservative darling former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and rumored potential GOP candidate Texas Gov. Rick Perry have been left off the ballot for the Ames Straw Poll Aug. 13, grassroots supporters for both candidates don’t seem worried... ‘There's nothing planned that I know of,’ Palin grassroots supporter and California-based attorney Peter Singleton told The Iowa Independent. Though Singleton thought Palin would announce a decision regarding 2012 this month, jury duty may have pushed back the former Governor’s plans. ‘Given she’s not in (the 2012 race), we will just support the party,’ Singleton said. ‘We think the Straw Poll is great, (and) it’s a great fundraiser. But we’re not making a run with write-ins.’”
John Nolte , at Big Hollywood:
“I don’t know of any one filmmaker who wouldn’t be thrilled with that opening weekend or the home video distribution deal... when you’re talking about a political documentary.”
Del Parker, at Conservatives 4 Palin:
“What is noteworthy about ‘The Undefeated’ and its audience, is the use of not just multiple witnesses to tell the story of Sarah Palin, but taking it to the next level, and using the power of multiple witnesses to advertise the movie itself, and thus mobilize and grow Organize 4 Palin, and to mobilize the ground troops. So far only word of mouth, via email, via Facebook, via links to You-Tube, and via Twitter have been used to draw audience. The audience so drawn is being drawn by the witness of those that have seen it, not by something in a Soros-paid media commentary, or paid advertising. The mainstream media has nothing to do with it. Every person that sees it is likely to bring others who in turn will have an influence on still more. This is exactly the same methodology that led to the rapid growth of the early first century church, and how that history was portrayed in Acts. Growth was accomplished, not by addition, but by multiplication. It is not the people you witness to, that is important. It is the people they witness to.”
Whet Moser, at The 312:
“How the Sarah Palin Doc ‘The Undefeated’ Is Like the Debt Ceiling Debate”
Kellyanne Conway, on why Sarah Palin has time for her kids:
“As far as I can tell, she doesn't have a boyfriend. So right there it frees up like 15 extra hours a week. And she doesn't play golf. That's like seven hours every Saturday, eight hours every Sunday because there's always a brunch involved. I just gave her 30 extra hours a week. These kids will be fine.”
Noel Sheppard, at NewsBusters:
“I wouldn't hold my breath that Lopez will stick to his promise, but he sure does hate Sarah Palin...”
Bridget, at Hillbuzz:
“Did you know that... George Lopez said that if Sarah Palin is elected president then he will move to Canada? Promise George? Because I don’t want to get my hopes up and have you back out like that Whoopi Goldberg creature did when George W. Bush was elected. I still see her sad sorry face on TV all the time and it makes me sick. You crazy Hollywood types need to start honoring your word.”
Jim Hoft, at Big Journalism:
“When crazed Bush-hating leftist Jared Loughner went on a shooting spree in Arizona the ‘left’ blamed Sarah Palin. When a crazed ‘right-wing’ killer goes on a shooting spree in Oslo the the ‘left’ blames Sarah Palin.”
Matthew Vadum, at The American Spectator's AmSpec Blog:
“While Norway mourns the deaths of the 92 (so far) shooting victims, kook bloggers at FireDogLake, Democratic Underground, and elsewhere are already labeling the alleged killer to be ‘right wing.’ This meme appears to have started with a comment made by a Norwegian political science professor who speculated that the shooter might be ‘right wing.’ Even Sarah Palin is now being blamed for the shooting because the suspect reportedly favored the creation of a European Tea Party. The media keeps repeating the mantra that the shooter is ‘right wing.’ But what does it even mean to be ‘right wing’ in Norway? The American media doesn't have a clue. American journos would much prefer to parrot a fuzzy idea than offer genuine insight into what happened in Norway. Very broadly speaking, to be on the right is to favor the status quo or a status quo ante. To be on the left is to favor change or something new. The terms came out of the French Revolutionary period.”
Exit Quote: Ezekiel 19:10, in the King James Bible:
“Thy mother is like a vine in thy blood, planted by the waters: she was fruitful and full of branches by reason of many waters.”
