More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 389

“A Flame in the Darkness” Edition

Jeanette Pryor, at Lipstick 2012:
‘Love is the fundamental relation of God to the world. … In a chain of acts of love, man strives for the highest end.’ - St. Thomas Aquinas... Evil, for Aquinas, is the absence of good. For human beings, evil is a life devoid of love, one that feeds on hatred. Such a life, instead of shining like a flame in the darkness, extinguishes the light, twisting the one who hates. This afternoon I posted an article written by Caroline Glick, the editor of the Jerusalem Post, concerning the pro-Israel foreign policy orientation of Gov. Sarah Palin... I sincerely pray that those whose hearts are twisted by hatred for Sarah, whose ideas and patriotism I admire, and especially for the Jewish State of Israel, will find their way back to their ‘final cause,’ as Aquinas so beautifully put it.”
PolitiJim, at Rants for Reasonable People:
“OMG! Sarah STILL hasn't announced!! The Sky is Falling!”
William A. Jacobson, at Legal Insurrection:
“#OccupyWallStreet is organized agitprop designed to deflect attention from the Obama administration’s failings onto ‘Wall Street,’ although many of the participants don’t understand how they are being used. The Washington Post now is fully aboard Team Obama, doing its best to take down Rick Perry this week, next week someone else. AxelPlouffe messaging is all class warfare all the time, and will be for the next 13 months. And what are we doing? Silly antics like day-long sniping at others who are on our side. Get motivated...”
Kate Hicks, at Townhall.com's Tipsheet:
“To her credit, she never gave an exact timeline, so the firestorm surrounding her supposed ‘broken promise’ isn't exactly fair.”
Steve Flesher, at American Thinker:
“Fox News contributor Juan Williams remarked that Sarah Palin made a ‘nasty’ comment. Williams made the statement on Judge Napolitano's Freedom Watch Thursday, right before Palin was scheduled to appear. In Palin's subsequent discussion with Napolitano, she said, ‘I think it's nasty when a colleague [Williams] takes a shot when they don't know what they're talking about.’ Palin's complaints on Fox News come after a few other Palin-naysayer moments on the network... Considering the track record of many of these commentators, it certainly is easy to understand Palin's point about the ‘quasi-reality show’ they are attempting to create and steer through 2012. It can also explain why so many of us are waiting for her to shake that up, just as she shook up those ‘corrupt bastards’ in Alaska. Now, if Palin chooses to suspend (or even terminate) her contract with Fox News, it could well signal her intention to run for president. And that's exactly what a lot of people are waiting for.”
Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, at The Atlantic:
“I admire Sarah Palin for speaking out loudly and forcefully against crony capitalism.”
Howard Fischer, in Tempe's East Valley Tribune:
“Jan Brewer’s self-described attack on the liberal media is done and her book will be on shelves in less than a month. But first, a word from Sarah Palin. Brewer told Capitol Media Services she confers regularly with the former Alaska governor. And she sent Palin an advance copy of her book, Scorpions for Breakfast, asking her for a foreword. Palin obliged. ‘It’s not surprising,’ Brewer said. She noted that Palin came to Arizona last summer to have a joint press conference to defend SB 1070. That measure, approved earlier last year by the Legislature, is designed to give police more power to detain and arrest suspected illegal immigrants. ‘She’s been a very big supporter of what Arizona is doing in regards to the crime on the border and the illegal immigration,’ Brewer said. ‘She’s someone that I’ve always admired,’ the governor continued. ‘I appreciate the fact that she’s stepped forward and did it.’ Brewer won’t share what Palin wrote, at least not yet.”
Joel Pollak, to Carol Felsenthal at Chicago Magazine:
“I think if Sarah Palin runs, she’ll be the first Jewish president.”
Gary P Jackson, at A Time For Choosing:
“If you’ve kept up with the Hot Air straw polling since November 2010, you’ll know Sarah Palin has won ever single poll by a wide margin, until last month. In September the ‘anybody but Sarah Palin, who isn’t Mitt Romney’ contingent glommed onto Rick Perry as their latest ‘flavor of the month,’ giving him the win. Sarah came in second. After watching Perry’s hapless performances in the debates, and finding out more about Perry’s record, the ‘anybody but Sarah Palin, who isn’t Mitt Romney’ crowd has run en masse to Herman Cain, this month’s winner. Again Sarah comes in second... Hot Air also asks who would win a Palin vs Perry contest and a Palin vs Bachmann contest. The results are devastating to both Perry and Bachmann: Palin 62% Perry 38% and Palin 79% Bachmann 21%.”
Ian Lazaran, via Twitter:
“Palin's positive intensity in Gallup is up 30% the last three weeks, Romney is down around 20%, while Perry is down around 40%.”
Bob Unruh, at WorldNetDaily:
“Former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has said that the 2012 run for the Oval Office will be an out-of-the-box event. But just what did she mean? Voters eventually will find out, presumably. But just in case her ‘out-of-the-box’ reference means something as surprising as challenging Barack Obama in a Democratic Party primary, Fritz Wenzel of Wenzel Strategies included the scenario in his newest poll on the coming election... The results were startling... He said in a head-to-head matchup among Democratic Party voters, Palin still draws support away from Obama.”
Mark Halperin, at Time's The Page:
“But with world's eyes on Trenton, don't lose sight of Wasilla.”
Mark America:
“On this Tuesday, the film by Stephen K. Bannon, ‘The Undefeated’ comes to stores near you on DVD! Now, you will be able to get your own copy, and purchase them for friends and relatives, but best of all, you can hold your own ‘The Undefeated’ viewing parties. Do you want the truth about Governor Sarah Palin to get out to an audience hungry for a different kind of leader, but who have been led astray by the Lamestream Media, and even some in the GOP establishment? If you want your chance to show people the truth, to correct the record and inform them, finally, here’s your chance.”
Grady Smith, at Entertainment Weekly:
“It looks like the appeal of trying to take down Palin may be waning…”
Maggie Haberman, at Politico:
“Ken Vogel and I both have sources telling us that calls were made on behalf of a mystery candidate to various early states to determine presidential filing deadlines. The calls were made by representatives of the law firm Baker Hostetler - a firm that employs lawyer Mark Braden, who represents Sarah PAC, her political action committee. As Ken notes, while he nor representatives of Palin’s campaign would comment on the calls, Palin is the only GOP politician eying the presidential race who is represented by the firm.”
Exit Quote - Alexis de Tocqueville, at The Tree of Mamre:
“When the past no longer illuminates the future, the spirit walks in darkness.”
