More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 345

“One of Us” Edition

Mark America, at SarahNET:
“So what should we make of this supposed victory? Well, according to Governor Palin, we shouldn’t take this victory to be all that significant. Did the Tea Party succeed in changing the conversation? Perhaps, but as she rightly points out, even modest reforms such as the idea that new bills should be placed on the Internet for 72 hours prior to votes has not been respected, despite pledges from the Tea Party freshmen to do so. One of the more interesting things to be understood from Van Susteren’s interview with Sarah Palin is her use of the word ‘we’ in the context of the efficacy of the Tea Party. This may signify something much more newsworthy for those observers tuned to nuance, because what this admits is that Sarah Palin sees herself as part of the Tea Party. In more than one instance, she’s gone out of her way to stress that the Tea Party doesn’t need a leader, in the sense of an ordinary party, in part because the movement is composed of independent-minded people, who by virtue of their character and inclination, are already leaders, each unto themselves. Tightly in line with Limbaugh’s thesis that ‘We’re all Sarah Palin, now’, this aspect is fundamental in understanding why Palin is different: She’s one of us.”
AWR Hawkins, at Big Government:
“I’m still glad McCain lost folks, and I mean it. The only good thing he would have brought to DC was Sarah Palin, and she can still get there without help from the likes of him.”
Christian Heinze, at The Hill's GOP 12:
“Despite Bachmann's meteoric rise in the race, Palin still looms larger. She continues to essentially do nothing and still ties Bachmann. How many Bachmann supporters are only backing her because Palin hasn't jumped in yet? Of course, Iowa is a lot more critical to both than Pennsylvania, and Ms. Bachmann (stepping into WSJ/NYT mode there) is doing quite well there. But Palin hasn't done anything beyond Pella in the state, and if she were to jump in, expect a surge of momentum to migrate from Bachmann to her.”
Public Policy Polling:
“The Presidential primary in Virginia depends greatly on whether or not Sarah Palin enters the race.”
Lydia Saad, of Gallup, Inc:
“Sarah Palin, Rudy Giuliani, Newt Gingrich, and Mitt Romney continue to be the most widely recognized potential candidates for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, familiar to more than 8 in 10 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents. Palin, Giuliani, and Romney also enjoy the broadest popularity among all Republicans, with more than 60% viewing each favorably... On a longer-term basis, Bachmann is clearly less well-positioned today than she was in mid-July, when her Positive Intensity Score registered +21. She is also down 10 percentage points since her peak of +24 in mid-June.”
Shea Bennett, at Media Bistro:
“Sorry, Newt, But If Twitter Was A Primary, Sarah Palin Would Be The GOP Presidential Nominee”
Michael O'Brien, at The Hill's Blog Briefing Room:
“The 2008 vice presidential nominee accused Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, of sticking his finger in the wind to gauge the political currents before deciding to oppose the debt-ceiling deal that ultimately passed Congress with bipartisan support... That's a clear shot across the bow by Palin toward Romney, and could provide a glimpse of how Palin will go after the campaign's putative front-runner if she decides to make a late entry into the field. Her line of criticism echoes other Republican candidates' complaints regarding Romney during the debt-ceiling debate. Romney's refusal to weigh in specifically during the debt-ceiling debate, his opponents charge, was a dereliction, and his eventual decision to oppose the deal came after the politics of the issue had ultimately settled.”
Doug Powers, at
“Romney wasn’t ‘late’ to the debate on purpose, Sarah… he merely got his finger stuck in the wind.”
John Scotus, at The Tree of Mamre:
“Palin still would not comment on whether or not she is running. However, she is very energized and seems raring to go. It is really hard to see her sitting out 2012. Given her ability to score points off of both Obama and Biden, it also seems hard to see her being defeated in the primaries. Few other people in politics have had the ability to take both the President and the Vice President to the woodshed in this way.”
Dan Conlon, at The Daily Danet:
“Sarah Palin wins the soundbite contest on Biden’s latest gaffe.”
John Hawkins, at Right Wing News:
“Calling Tea Partiers ‘Tea baggers’ is soooooo 2010. The hot new insult is calling us ‘terrorists.’ Everyone from Chris Matthews to the The Politico to members of Congress like Mike Doyle have used the insult. Of course, my thought was that if liberals think we’re terrorists, then maybe they should ask what they’ve done to make us hate them. But Sarah Palin had an even better rejoinder. ‘If we were real domestic terrorists, shoot, President Obama would be wanting to pal around with us, wouldn’t he?’ Sarah Palin: 1., ‘Tea-Partiers-Are-Terrorists’ Libs: 0”
“Cuda Shoots... With Both Barrels. She Scores!”
Ethel C. Fenig, at American Thinker Blog:
“Democrats--and their liberal enablers everywhere-- who oh so carefully, politically correctly refrain from labeling as terrorists those Muslims who gleefully bomb to maim and kill civilians but have no trouble in their spoiled, self righteous entitlement calling those who disagree with them on spending, ‘terrorists’, finally learned of terrorists in their midst from--who else?--Sarah Palin... No wonder the liberals hate Sarah Palin; she uncovered their dirty secret and is not afraid to announce it.”
Henry D'Andrea, at Politicons:
“Quite possibly the stupidest anti-palin hater on the internet, Malia Litman, just got her frivolous lawsuit thrown out by the Alaska Attorney General’s office.”
Papa Grizzly, at Rogue Warrior:
“Less than a year in office, the utter failure of the Obama Administration spawned an influential grassroots uprising called the TEA Party movement... And Sarah Palin has been there, right along side them, championing this exceptional nation of ours, encouraging activism for ‘time-tested, common sense, conservative principles,’ and raising money for TEA Party-endorsed candidates, shocking the establishment with the largest seat change in Congress since 1948 and the largest ever for any mid-term election... One clear message in ‘The Undefeated’ is this: Sarah Palin loves Alaska, Sarah Palin loves America, and Sarah Palin has a ‘servant’s heart,’ getting into politics for the ‘right reasons.’ I don’t care if you’re Democrat, Republican, Green, or Independent. I don’t care if you’re conservative, liberal, or content to be run over in the middle-of-the-road. If you care about America and if you consider yourself reasonably intelligent and fair, you must see this movie. Don’t see it because it is about Sarah Palin, see it because it is about us. It will challenge you. It will inspire you. It is The Truth on screen. I reiterate, ‘The Undefeated’ is the Most Important Documentary of Our Lifetime.”
