More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 354

“Heart of a Servant” Edition

Jelayne Sessler, at Palin Defender:
“The presidency is a sacrifice —- to those who truly want to better the nation. The presidency is comparable to military service. It's not something you happily sign up for. Nobody excitedly takes on the challenge of service which likely includes getting bullets fired at you. I want the heart of a veteran—a servant. I choose the American that has stood beside me during these past three devastating years. Someone who has felt my pain, who has hurt when I hurt, who has carried the same heavy burdens I carry. I will not choose a candidate who chooses to serve just to check off ‘president’ from their list of accomplishments. I choose the one who has stood beside me every moment since Barack Obama took office... America, you are hurting and we will NOT survive this battle without the heart of a servant —- one that will lay it all down for pure love for country. Congratulations Michele on your victory in Iowa, but I’m still waiting on Servant Palin.”
Michelle Malkin, via Twitter:
“It's not about looking for ‘perfection.’ It's about comparing rhetoric vs. record.”
Rush Limbaugh:
“The liberal media will always tell us who of our people they fear and why. You know, I have speculated with great accuracy, I am confident, that they're scared to death of Sarah Palin. They're scared to death. I mean, all this time spent trying to destroy her. Common sense, folks, if she's a dolt, if she's an idiot, if she doesn't have a prayer of being elected, as they say, why give her a thought? Why spend a second? Why one drop of ink? Why one megabyte of information? No, no, no, they're very worried, and they're worried for a number of reasons. And one of the reasons is they really fear she could win. And they know she means what she says. And they know that she's got guts. And they know that she's not afraid of 'em.”
M. Joseph Sheppard, at A Point Of View:
“The timing of these Palin hit pieces is hardly a coincidence.”
P.J. Salvatore, at Big Journalism:
“I have always believed that Meghan McCain was upset that the 2008 election produced a female superstar that wasn’t her. Since Sarah Palin’s ascendancy to the upper echelon of conservatives, McCain has been running hard, nipping at her ankles, in an effort to catch her. Every single PR roll out that McCain has done, including the launch of her book, was centered on Palin. It’s a harsh truth to realize that no one is interested in you, your book, your website, or anything else remotely McCain unless you can promise them you’ll gab about Palin.”
Stacy McCain, at The Other McCain:
“Yeah. Meghan’s an expert on ‘attention-seeking antics’”
Kevin DuJan, at Hillbuzz:
“In case you haven’t noticed, Governor Sarah Palin is running for president in 2012 — though she has not officially announced it yet... Governor Palin’s 2012 presidential campaign will be unlike anything that’s come before it, because the energy fueling it really comes from individual, average, Americans who are excited to see her run for the presidency and are committed to doing everything they can do to help her... She’s running. Her supporters know it. The media, as always, is clueless. The Cocktail Party GOP establishment is, in a word, stupid. All the while, the momma grizzly sizes up her competition... and readies herself to launch into the campaign on her own terms, with absolutely all the might God gave her. She’s going to win, too, because the woman’s clearly on a mission... right when she’s needed the most. It really is her moment.”
Dana Loesch, via Twitter:
“Will the same media that suggested Palin crosshairs = Tucson say that Obama ‘bring gun to knife fight’ = Ohio?
Mark America:
“Dana Perino... The former Bush Press Secretary took Obama and Biden’s side... against an average guy who is an Iowa Tea Party organizer. Why would she do that? Well, you tend to speak kindly of those who’ve appointed you to the Broadcasting Board of Governors. You didn’t know that? Most people don’t. Yes, she’s a big government Republican. Are you shocked yet? She... has acted as Karl Rove’s family spokesperson... Knowing a bit more about Perino, it’s easier to understand how she’s part of the Washington Insider crowd. It’s small wonder that she’s not a big fan of Tea Party folks. The Tea Party stands opposed to the whole stinking system in which she is thoroughly entangled... The Republicans Dana Perino represents are the sort who think Lisa Murkowski is ‘a strong conservative,’ as she herself told Neil Cavuto... Then you hear Perino criticize Sarah Palin as being inauthentic? The irony is amazing...”
Ben Smith & Jonathan Martin, at Politico:
“Palin wandered the fairgrounds freely with her husband, an advance man, and, at a remove, a handful of Iowa State Police... Bachmann, in contrast, raced through the fair in a golf cart; in a similar cart in Ames on Saturday, her bodyguard could be seen pushing away the hands of autograph-seeking supporters.”
Emily Miller, at The Washington Times:
“It’s a long road to the nomination, and anything can still happen at this point. The undeclared shadow candidates - Sarah Palin, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie - loom large in this race because the elephants have yet to coalesce around one person. The gap leaves the door open for someone to jump in and win everyone’s hearts. President Obama’s approval rating has fallen to a dismal 39 percent, but he is - if nothing else - a talented campaigner who will have a $1 billion war chest behind him. The GOP primary fight is an important battlefield test to determine who is the strongest candidate to take on the O Force. That someone needs to unify establishment fundraising with Tea Party enthusiasm to win the White House.”
Jedediah Bila, via Twitter:
“Nice summary of 's stand on the issues via
Rooster, at
“Of course Sarah’s running, so why not announce? Because she doesn’t have to... For now, why not wait? Let things thin out a bit... Sarah Palin is smart, and she already knows what she’s up against. She knows full well the Republican establishment doesn’t want her in the race and she won’t have the support of the Republican money baggers. Yet, she remains the only TRUE Conservative in the field that has executive experience. Of course she’s running, but she’s doing it her way.”
Elle Magazine:
“A new generation of conservative women is stepping forward to dis feminists and cheer low taxes, guns, and motherhood. Nina Burleigh reports on how these ‘Baby Palins’ are going to reshape the 2012 presidential election ”
Eric Golub, at The Tygrrrr Express:
“It finally happened. I met former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin... I did observe how she was with other people. She is kind, funny, and so incredibly genuine. There is zero snobbery or prima donna in her. She really is as lovely as she comes across. She really loves her fellow Mama Grizzlies. When they come up to her with their daughters, her face lights up. So many women are jealous of her because men want to go out with her and women want to be her. She was superwoman, balancing five children while governing an entire state and running for Vice President. The men admire any woman who hunts what she cooks and eats what she hunts, and can look feminine yet still grasp that ESPN is not the Spanish channel. She is what feminism should be about. Yet beyond all of that, I can finally confirm that she and the First Dude are as nice in person as they appear. They really are what they seem.”
Exit Quote - Col. James B. Irwin, Apollo 15 astronaut:
“As I was returning to Earth, I realized that I was a servant -- not a celebrity.”
