Quotes of the day

posted at 9:30 pm on October 31, 2009 by Allahpundit

“Sarah Palin, using her unique sense of timing, one week ago became the biggest name of in-prime party leaders to endorse Hoffman. Had she stayed on the sidelines, this contest could have played out in predictable fashion: Republicans stayed split and Democrat Bill Owens would have cruised to victory. Instead, by all appearances, the conservative revolt has succeeded. Even the national GOP — which had endorsed Scozzafava and was slamming outsider Hoffman as much as Democrat Owens — is now recognizing that district voters seem to flocking to Hoffman.

“Outside observers who want to dismiss Palin do so at their peril. But, there appears to be a reason that her basketball-playing nickname was ‘Barracuda.’ Recall she was the one who coined (or at least made viral) the phrase ‘death panel’ during the health care fight during the summer — forcing Democrats and the White House onto the defensive. Whether Palin is doing all this for PR purposes (her book comes out in three weeks) or being reckless in her political rhetoric, the fact is she is having an impact on the broader debate — and continuing to resonate with her party’s base.

“Mitt Romney? Not so much.”

***
“‘Conservatives will be energized to take back the Republican Party and moderates will be looking over their shoulders for the next year,’ said Brian Darling, director of Senate relations at the Heritage Foundation. ‘Moderate incumbents worried about the next election may have to tack to the right to avoid a primary battle.’…

“‘It clearly means populist conservatism is ascendant,’ said Craig Shirley, a Republican consultant and author of Rendevous with Destiny, a new biography of Ronald Reagan. Shirley said some Republicans should ‘say gentle prayers tonight’ and purchase a new copy of Barry Goldwater’s Conscience of a Conservative.”

***
“Nobody but us got it. Elected officials and GOP party insiders ignored us. With no support at all from within the ranks of establishment Republicans, the Tea Party movement has battled an unceasing barrage of lies and attacks from Democrats at all levels, the MSM and every entertainment industry lefty thought-barfer in America…

“The momentum arrow on the Right runs from the ground up now. Newt didn’t (maybe still doesn’t) understand that. Neither did (do) the GOP party operatives. Whether Doug Hoffman wins or loses is almost irrelevant at this point. What’s important is that the alleged party elite begin to grasp the New Republican Order and decide they might want to win future elections by backing the correct candidates from the beginning.”

***
“The trouble with that is this: There is hardly any guarantee whatsoever that this very-purified new party will be able to win elections and have any power, either. It is a fact that conservatives sometimes like to dismiss, but a good 40% of the country is liberal (I know they don’t call themselves that; but many people who claim to be ‘moderate’ are in fact liberal — you know that from reporters telling you so, and the thousand liberals you’ve encountered online purporting to be ‘moderate’) and another 20% is not politically principled and simply votes for whatever guy seem to be offering the most stuff at any time.

“The other 40%? Conservative, yes. In this landscape, it is doubtful that true, absolute conservatives could win many elections. Some here and there. But how many? Not nearly a working majority, I don’t think…

“I don’t know if Beck is bluffing in order to drive the party to the right. If he is, that’s not a bad exercise; Kos and his nutroots did that to the Democratic Party in 2004-2006, and that worked out all right for them.

“But if he really does mean it? If it’s not just rhetoric?

What ever happened to Jindal? One bad speech & he drops like a bowling ball in the Pacific? He’s still my favorite.

You never get a second chance for a first impression and he blew it on his debut.

Sarah nailed her first impression. That’s the difference.

Maybe not fair, but that’s how it goes…

technopeasant on November 1, 2009 at 4:43 AM

I understand and agree for the most part but when this was a three way race the chances of Mr. Hoffman were far less but he was still being robustly supported by the conservative base. Rightly so. That was the message being sent. The outside interference on this race could hit NY23 voters in different ways, some make like the national attention, others may resent it. The best case scenario is a win by Mr. Hoffman and the highly entertaining articles written by moderate squishes stating that it doesn’t mean anything. I am polishing my spectacles.

Cindy Munford on November 1, 2009 at 8:48 AM

Sarah nailed her first impression.

You mean the Couric interview, or the Gibson one?

he blew it on his debut.

Lincoln lost like four elections before he became President.
Nixon was washed up before he became President.
Reagan lost his primary w/ Ford before he became President.

jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 8:50 AM

Don’t get me wrong, I love Sarah! But I think Jindal is more electable.

jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 8:51 AM

jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 8:17 AM

Agreed, that wasn’t fair. And to allow Chris Matthews that kind of power (he’s the one who made fun of Gov. Jindal that was given wide coverage) is unacceptable. I am hoping that Gov. Jindal is just working hard to get LA. back on track. I am sure it’s more than a full time job. He will benefit from that, it has to be a heck of a battle between the damage and the institutional corruption that has been accepted there for years.

Cindy Munford on November 1, 2009 at 8:54 AM

What ever happened to Jindal?
jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 8:17 AM

I also like Jindal. His speech was not flashy like the President had just delivered just minutes before. But I hope the 52% of the voters are finding out that flashy just doesn’t cut it now. We need someone like Jindal.

Sarah Palin is a breath of fresh air, but the Liberals won’t leave her alone until they ruin her completely.

yoda on November 1, 2009 at 8:54 AM

Just woke up and remembered this.

Michelle Bachman announced a press conference (on Thursday) I dunno if it was this past Thu or NEXT Thursday, open to public. I interpreted it as a “gathering”. Saw that interview on FOX. This against new Pelosi’s bill. Promised ppl that attend to take them personally to their senator’s doors and demand to not vote on it.

Did anybody else see this? Can’t find YouTube video on it (yet).

ProudPalinFan on November 1, 2009 at 9:01 AM

ProudPalinFan on November 1, 2009 at 9:01 AM

I saw her on Hannity, I believe it is this Thursday but I think if you find her website it will clear it up. I worry about the participation on such short notice.

Cindy Munford on November 1, 2009 at 9:04 AM

jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 8:50 AM

But losing isn’t the same as creating a bad impression. Lincoln was not video-recorded to be replayed by his enemies again and again. Nixon was recorded in his debates with JFK, but radio was still prominent and it was a different time–he was able to come back, using television more effectively. Reagan polished communicating his principles on the speaking circuit, and his loss wasn’t from a lack of ability to articulate–his televised appearances are still inspiring. Unfortunately, Jindal does not have that. I’m not convinced that he can’t recover, but it will require something impressive. Palin has something of an uphill battle, as well. It’s a sin that the media have that much power and television trivializes what is important, but they do and it does.

jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 8:17 AM

His speech was totally forgettable. I don’t hold that speech against him at all as most people probably don’t remember it/him. I think he isn’t being touted because he said he isn’t running in 2012 so why talk about him? And besides, Sarah is the one making all the noise. Death panels, crap and tax, NY23….

Jidnal is OK, but I would take Rubio any day before Jindal, although I like them both.

deidre on November 1, 2009 at 9:08 AM

Fred Thompson and Sarah Palin showed true leadership on the Hoffman race, while Huckabee and Romnney showed true cowardice.

Her first real impression was her convention speech which came before those ‘interviews’ you reference.

tatersalad on November 1, 2009 at 9:11 AM

DrMagnolias on November 1, 2009 at 9:05 AM

Jindal’s speech was delivered in a boring & clumsy manner, but the content was great. How would his enemies gain by replaying it?

jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 9:13 AM

Palin is great at speeches. Hostile interviews, not so great.
Jindal is great at hostile interviews. Speeches, not so great.

jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 9:14 AM

I worry about the participation on such short notice.
Cindy Munford on November 1, 2009 at 9:04 AM

I worry too. I’m afraid the Liberals and MSM will make fun of the crowds if they are sparse.

2010 will be the end of most of these party-line Democrats if they vote for this scam.

yoda on November 1, 2009 at 9:15 AM

Just for the record, please reference a hostile interview that Jindal was great in?

tatersalad on November 1, 2009 at 9:16 AM

Let’s be clear, I’m not one of those conservatives who is always prattling on about RINOs. In fact, this, I believe, is the first time the term has ever appeared in a blog post of mine. I have no problem with moderates in the GOP. What I don’t like is the idea that conservatives must be abandoned in the name of “electability”. It’s a load of garbage that’s been fed to us from party operatives, Democrats and the media. See anything wrong with taking advice from that group, kids?

I feel exactly the same way, with the exception that I have used the term RINO from time to time.

conservnut on November 1, 2009 at 9:16 AM

I’d say it’s hard to define being moderate. The media, for example, has painted this woman Scuzzy whatever, as some sort of moderate. A winner of the Margaret Sanger Award is now a moderate Republican??!! Last time I checked a very big plank in the Republican Party policy was being Pro-Life.
There’s not much of a gray area there. Also, when does, in the medias eyes, being for union “card check”, that denies the right for fair secret balloting, become a plank of the Republican party. Do you see what I mean. Exactly what IS a moderate?

Jeff from WI on November 1, 2009 at 9:23 AM

Exactly what IS a moderate?

Jeff from WI on November 1, 2009 at 9:23 AM

I think a moderate is someone who bases their decisions more on emotion and not offending others. They are not really educated on facts, and not all that interested in diving into details. They want to feel good and be able to not offend anyone with their ‘opinions’.

They feel it’s ok to say they voted for Obama because it feels good to say it’s a historic opportunity and he will change the ‘tone’.

They feel it’s ok to say they voted for McCain because he is an honorable man who served his country for many years.

Both of these fail to base a decision on direct self and family interest. Will they pay more in taxes? Will the policies have an impact on the business community that may effect my job or my families well being? Will their policies effect my freedom of speech, religion or right to own a gun?

‘Moderates’ don’t really stand for anything and that is why their vote is begged for up until election day, because they can be swayed on emotion and feeling.

tatersalad on November 1, 2009 at 9:33 AM

Frankly folks (conservatives and Republicans) I think it is time to send the Gibson and Couric interviews to Davy Jones’ locker where they belong. So what! It is now 2009 going into 2010. They matter squat.

Even Tiger Woods blew the most recent PGA Championship tournament while leading after the 3rd round. Is he now to be labelled a “choker”?

There are some days we are not at our best. Count me in. So am I or should you be judged for all eternity by our worst performance or should we all be judged based on our “body of work”?

As to you trolls that keep bringing up the subject try for a change defending Biden’s statement to Couric that FDR as POTUS went on TV in 1929.

technopeasant on November 1, 2009 at 9:37 AM

Great post technopeasant! I agree completely. The left and RINOs are plenty worried about Palin. Just read some of the comments at sites like Daily Beast or even LGF. They are worried that the republicans are going to leave the comfortable center-left and go too far right for them and they will actually have to make a decision in future elections over two very distinct ideologies. Up until now the waters have been muddied with shades of liberal gray. Fence sitters may have to actually get off the fence in future elections and really choose a party. I say it’s a good thing.

KickandSwimMom on November 1, 2009 at 9:54 AM

You can’t sacrifice your principles to win elections. If you pander to the left, you’re a panderer. This means you won’t always win. It also means that, if you lose, you still get to keep your self respect. Not so sure why Palin is such a target, unless people are really worried about someone with principles actually getting elected. Maybe it scares them that they won’t be able to “run” her like they run so many other candidates from behind the curtain. Don’t know the answer, but it makes you wonder….

KickandSwimMom on November 1, 2009 at 9:54 AM

It is a good thing unless the other side proves successful… going too far either way, too fast, produces exactly what Obama is producing right now for the left!

Back lash!

We don’t want to do the same on our side. If we are trusted with power all voices must be heard and the left should not be assumed to have no place in the public discourse. Their views need to be quietly discredited not shouted out.

When this race focuses on NY23 the most important point is being over looked. Scozzafava was more liberal than most Democrats! It really is not much of a statement to get her out of the race. Not as big a deal as the left is making it.

petunia on November 1, 2009 at 10:13 AM

Well, I agree that Mitt Romney doesn’t resonate. Palin is showing the leadership.

AnninCA on November 1, 2009 at 10:13 AM

jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 9:14 AM

Jindal can be better at speeches as he continues to grow. But I don’t recall he ever gave an interview to a hostile interviewer in the white-hot national spotlight.

katy on October 31, 2009 at 9:56 PM

Well said.

What many on the right forget, is that this march to the left for the Republican Party has been underway for some time. The left has been nibbling away at this country for over a hundred year. They are slow and methodical. One step at a time.

And it is no mistake, that the more this insidious disease of Liberalism infects our lives, whether through abortion, gay rights, gay marriage, social programs, diversity, etc., then once proud conservatives find their values watered down through constant barrage. One can hardly even watch a prime time show without being indoctrinated with liberal ideology.

Beck points this out and shows us that we need to re-focus. The Republican party is just as corrupt in general as the opposition. And what the NY 23 race has shows us, is that many care not for the “man” but only for the “party.”

This must stop.

BierManVA on November 1, 2009 at 10:34 AM

Please show me proof that 40% of the country is liberal. Oh I forgot, you get your info “from reporters telling you so,”.

Didn’t 48% vote for John Kerry during relatively good economic times? Didn’t Mondale get over 40% after promising to raise taxes?

You never get a second chance for a first impression and he blew it on his debut.

Sarah nailed her first impression. That’s the difference.

Maybe not fair, but that’s how it goes…

tatersalad on November 1, 2009 at 8:28 AM

Yeah but her second and third impressions sucked.

Speedwagon82 on November 1, 2009 at 10:40 AM

Speedwagon82 on November 1, 2009 at 10:40 AM

I cannot think what you are referring to…
Care to enlighten us as to specifics?

Jenfidel on November 1, 2009 at 10:47 AM

A couple of things to remember about those early interviews Sarah Palin did with Couric and Gibson is the fact that it was McCain’s camp who was prepping her for them. We dont really know what she was being told by those idiots before the interview. She had to carry McCains message. I think had Sarah Palin been allowed to be Sarah Palin she would have fared far better.

Now she will not be encumbered with trying to carry the McCain camp message. She will be free to speak about HER ideas, HER ideals, and convey HER message.

Totally different ball game. She no longer will have to be on defense during the entire interview. She will not have to be restrained in her responses to loaded questions.

I would like to see a rematch of the Palin/Couric interview. Couric won by decision in the first one. This time however she wont be dealing with a Sarah Palin who has one arm tied behind her back.

This is what the Allahpundits of the Republican Party dont understand. We are sick of the Metro Sexual, Beta Male, touchy feely, above the fray, cant we all get along playbook the Republican party loses with game after game.

I dont need or want purity dammit! I want some courage of conviction along with the balls to muck it up with the other side. You dont have to fight dirty, but at least fight for Petes sake. And if it comes down to rolling around in the gutter with the democrats to get it done, then do it. There is no reason to practice civility with a bunch of political savages. They don’t understand it, certainly don’t respect it, and are going to use it against you to club you over the head time and time again as we have seen over and over again.

Why is this so flipping hard to understand?

mikkins on November 1, 2009 at 10:50 AM

I bet Katie would love to interview Sarah again….she needs to increase her viewing audience numbers at least into double digits…

tatersalad on November 1, 2009 at 10:54 AM

One could even say that even Palin’s good first impression was a liability. It just made people realize how much McCain sucked himself. The VP nominee should never be more of a draw than the Presidential nominee.

Speedwagon82 on November 1, 2009 at 11:11 AM

mikkins on November 1, 2009 at 10:50 AM

No question about it. Schmidt leaked the stories precisely to rebut the obvious: He blew it badly with Palin’s preparation. Frankly, that’s the fault of the campaign manager. He completely misread the political landscape.

I knew that Gibson would go after Palin aggressively because he took such heat over asking Obama a couple of questions about taxes in the debate.

Sure enough, he did. Schmidt should have prepared her for that.

AnninCA on November 1, 2009 at 11:24 AM

I don’t remember if it was the Couric or Gibson interview, but did’nt Sarah just deploy her son Track just hours prior to that interview can’t picture that having any effect on a parent.

heshtesh on November 1, 2009 at 12:05 PM

When Sarah Palin endorsed the candidate that Fred Thompson endorsed first, you know she’s on the right track. Her unity chorus finally enjoys Gingrich’s voice, given no more Scuzzy on the ballot.

maverick muse on November 1, 2009 at 12:11 PM

The good news: once a Palinista (Palin supporter) always a Palin supporter. Nothing else matters including her poll numbers.

The bad news: There won’t be enough room on the bandwagon or Sarah Palin express to accommodate all the passengers once it gets rolling.

technopeasant on November 1, 2009 at 7:49 AM

jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 8:17 AM

Saw him on Fox the other day. Very bright guy. Too wonkish. I honestly like the guy as well. But he is Tim Pawlenty, except smart. He just puts you to sleep.

Also, he has said in no uncertain terms that he is not running, except for re-election. He’s really young though, lots of time. Depending on who Sarah’s Vice President is, and how that works out, there is always 2028.

gary4205 on November 1, 2009 at 1:23 PM

Palin knows you don’t win the first miles of marathon, but the final mile.

Go Sarah!

profitsbeard on November 1, 2009 at 1:47 PM

Lincoln lost like four elections before he became President.
Nixon was washed up before he became President.
Reagan lost his primary w/ Ford before he became President.

jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 8:50 AM

Well, since her first major action was her speech at the RNC, you know, the most watched VP speech ever, one that if my memory serves me correctly, had more viewers than Obama’s Greek Tragedy, what do you think?

Many pundits are still describing it as one of the best speeches ever. It’s not Reagan’s 1964 RNC speech, which turned 40 on the 27th, for sure, nothing will ever top that, but it’s a rousing red meat speech.

BTW, she gave it even though the teleprompter was all out of whack. Her first major speech to the world, and she knocked it out of the park, from memory!

That’s a hell of a first impression!

The Gibson interview was a joke, but the joke was Gibson. His loss of viewership, and “retirement” has been said to be, in part, because of his Palin “interview.”

Now you know, having recently looked at the Couric interview again, I have to agree, not Sarah’s finest hour. But it’s sort of obvious she didn’t want to be there. There were some serious bad vibe. Real bad chemistry.

But don’t forget that both interviews were cut and paste jobs, and the Couric deal was written for her by Sam Nunn, Obama’s almost Vice President, with many built in gotchas.

The first mistake was doing the damned interview, the second was going back for more. Of course, had she backed out……..

The morons in the McCain campaign had no clue. Had she done interviews on a bunch of friendly shows, Hannity, Rush, Beck, O’Reilly and other, first, those two interviews would have had less meaning and little impact.

Look, I don’t hold Bobby’s rebuttal speech against him, like some do. At the time, the ether hadn’t worn off, and that Obama Kool Aid still tasted good. Few would have been able to follow his act. Then you compared the settings…..

Bobby’s a good guy. But he just doesn’t have the “it” factor. Even if there was no Sarah Palin, Bobby wouldn’t have “it.” That’s not to say he can’t be POTUS some day, in the right circumstance, but these are not his times.

Right now we need bold and daring leadership. We need someone who is willing to go all in. We need someone who will utter words like: “Politically, if I die, I die!”

We have that bold leader, that one who is willing to put what is good for the Republic over what is good for her career. Go google her speech given in June in Anchorage introducing Michael Reagan. It is defiant!

Looking back, it was a prelude to her July 3rd bombshell. In context, she was telling you exactly what she was going to do, and is doing now.

Again I like Bobby Jindal a lot. He is a serious brain, and obviously a good man. But can you tell me, with a straight face, he has the ability to do what Sarah did in NY-23?

That’s the leadership we need right now if we are going to put down this coup d’état, this “glorious communist revolution.”

Don’t get me wrong, I love Sarah! But I think Jindal is more electable.

jgapinoy on November 1, 2009 at 8:51 AM

OK, now you are just playing this for laughs. Bobby doesn’t even show up on the radar in most polls, even polls among Republicans only! There’s a reason for that.

The smart people claimed Reagan wasn’t electable either. Refresh my memory, how did that work out again? Oh yeah, he won two historic landslides! He was a point or two away from a 50 state sweep!

A few more deals like NY-23, and a successful book tour, Sarah will be at least as electable as Reagan.

Even the state run media is grudgingly admitting Sarah is the leader of the party now. I just happened to look at Geraldo for a second last night, and even he had nothing but praise for her ability.

Sarah has the base, and we can see what having the base will do for you. She only has to turn a decent percent of the “moderate” vote and she gets elected in a landslide.

It’s not a gimme, for sure, but with her skill, it’s not something that can’t be done.

gary4205 on November 1, 2009 at 2:12 PM

Alert!

Sarah just posted this on Facebook:

Sarah Palin: NJ’s Governor’s Race: Candidate Plays Loose With Facts?

Today at 12:43pm
Despite what candidate Chris Daggett is claiming, I have never contacted him or his campaign. I have never asked him to drop out of the NJ Governor’s race. Now, if a politician is going to play loose with facts like this, the electorate needs to know it.

So, to the good people of New Jersey, please know that Daggett’s claims are false. I’ve never even suggested he should drop out of the race. But, come to think of it…

- Sarah Palin

Oh man……This is going to get good!

gary4205 on November 1, 2009 at 2:47 PM

Dayton, OH or the RNC convention speech. Take your pick.

Sarah Palin has become the only republican attack dog. Where are the republican leaders to attack the democrats? Who has voiced the democrats failures more than Palin?
She has the dems and the media obsessed with every word she utters when a year ago they tried to destroy her, she is a strong woman and has more `nads` than anyone in the republican party. Well done Sarah. May your book sell millions of copies and you continue to stir it up during these elections.

Get the dems on defense and they lose based on their record of failure. All they do is demonize their opponents, focus back on their history only and republicans win every time.
