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?

The Sarahsia and Michelle B. have shepherded the Republican party like the soccer coaches they are.

Kicked out the bad kid (scuzzy) and set the rules for everyone. Newt get in or get out, we are going for the goal as Republicans, not dem lite, not third party but Republicans that have principles. No sitting on the couch with Pelosi, no wandering the neighborhoods with Al Sharpton. It is time to think of the country and leave your egos at the door. We will invite the people to the White House (nov.5) to help us..We will cause a stir. Help us, be energized…We are going to win all three races.

I respect the late Buckley, but I’m going to have to side with Adams on this…

“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.” ~John Quincy Adams

That’s right. I’m a RINO – Republican in name only. I would rather put my conservative principles above the very wayward goals of the GOP. Call me a Beckhead. Fine, if that makes you feel better.

Sure wish Daggett would pack it in for the good of the conservative movement. The Republicans should offer him a seat at whatever appropriate tables they have for him to participate. A show of unity on the right would be great.

GaltBlvnAtty on October 31, 2009 at 9:50 PM

Ah, the false “purity” argument. Only a frightened relativist who believes defying a Dede Scozzafava represents a purification crusade could make it. “Purity” isn’t the purpose or goal. Common sense is. But let them get it wrong. Who cares?

NY23 has been a solid (relatively conservative) Rep. district for decades if I’m not mistaken… You can count on the local Rino’s to cry if Hoffman doesn’t win (after they donate to Owens).

MeatHeadinCA on October 31, 2009 at 9:55 PM

I disagree with Ace in his analysis of Beck or any of us out here. We’re not going for party purity and nor is Beck. We’re going for conservative principles. Anyone who fits that bill is the one who will get the most support. It just so happens that most of those values will be found within Republican candidates, but not exclusively.

The tea party movement was a message that it’s OK for conservatives to come out from hiding and be bold. Fight!

Sarah Palin writes one Facebook message throwing some love to Doug Hoffman and all hell breaks loose.

The Far Left has their knickers in a twist and the GOP establishment and Palin’s perceived opponents (not Pawlenty)are scrambling to get on board before the Hoffman train leaves the station.

Sarah Palin is a woman that drives her opponents crazy; by the way when was the last time she was on American TV live and interviewed? I think it was right after she announced that she was resigning somewhere around the 5th or 6th of July when an array of reporters interviewed her after she got out of a fishing boat.

It really is unbelievable that this woman has had such a major impact on the American consciousness in the last 3-4 months without her face being plastered on every cable news show every week or two.

hillbillyjim on October 31, 2009 at 9:58 PM

What’s most striking in all this is how some conservative bloggers have become shrinking violent in light of the success of the conservative resurgence. These blogger who suppose to be media renegades, seem not to understand that its not too much to ask that the GOP live up to its ideals. The basic bedrock of the GOP is limited government, strong defense, and unabashed american patriotism. What is so difficult in wanting candidates that believe in these ideals? Yes we want principle over politics, because the politics is killing this country! We are going bankrupt now and the time for politics has to end. The times are calling for purity and the sooner the GOP and these so-called conservative bloggers get this, the sooner they can catch up to the resurgent conservative movement that’s leaving them behind.

Mrs. Irrelevant Quitter strikes again. I’m not exactly a Palinista but she certainly has quite a bit of invisible pull.

Bishop on October 31, 2009 at 10:00 PM

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich, who was one of Scozzafava’s most prominent supporters, said her experience delivered a message to 2010 candidates and to those considering presidential campaigns in 2012.

“It says that you had better have a willingness to take on the establishment and a willingness to represent conservative values if you’re going to have the energy and the capacity to create a Republican Party that’s able to hold together a coalition,” Gingrich said.

Wake up call, Newt.

Dr Evil on October 31, 2009 at 10:03 PM

I totally agree with Katy. This situation is a lot more about party bosses who are Country Club Republicans pushing an insider into Congress than about “purity” within the party.

Sarah Palin is much more in tune with that and gets a lot more support for people like myself who want to see the best person take office and push the right issues – and not watch a party insider installed in office (see ago: State Senator Barack H. Obama)

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

Squish.

Conservative IDEAS win elections. Running dems vs. dem lite yields the political arena to the more authentic of the two – usually the dem.

Thinking like this gave the republican party a bloody nose in 2006 as the party ‘moved to the center’. Thanks Andy Card for good old Miers… thanks McCain for Shamnesty…

It was conservatives who didn’t turn out to vote in this last election. The secret to political success is energizing the base. How do you think the dems did it? Popular ideas? No – their ideas are so stinkin bad that they can not seem to get them through Congress.

“Squish” doesn’t work, proven. My question, why does winning make Conservatives go all wobbly in the knees?

I’m close, I’m close, just not a hardcore believer in anyone right now; there is a paucity of quality conservatives standing up for people like me though Palin seems to be the most stalwart right now.

canopfor on October 31, 2009 at 10:13 PM

Actually, it’s a little cold for the headdress and thong…actually wearing a pair of Devil horns, a black cape, and a little red tail. My costume is a bit too close to my real self for comfort.

HornetSting on October 31, 2009 at 10:16 PM

A Palin thread on Saturday night–amazing.

What scares libtards is Palin’s ability to Reaganize not only Republicans but moderates / independent voters. and watching libtards squirm is…………gold

Um, NO, the GOP will learn from Dede having to withdraw….

ladyingray on October 31, 2009 at 10:12 PM

Too many egos involved for them to take the blame for the district going to the Democrat. Plus, I think you give them too much credit to think they won’t take the wrong lessons from it and say Hoffman was too conservative. Conservatives may have won the battle in forcing her withdrawal, but if he loses the establishment will look to regain the upper hand and blame it on anything but themselves.

Ace is showing his democratic side again. His post reminds me of the one he wrote when Palin resigned. I wonder he will start attack the comments again. Ace is a Northeastern rep and does not understand conservatism. I could care less if 80% of the USa was liberal i would still be a conservative and expect a conservative to run for election. If there is no difference between dems and reps what is the point in voting?

unseen on October 31, 2009 at 10:26 PM

another 20% is not politically principled and simply votes for whatever guy seem to be offering the most stuff at any time.

That is way too low.

pedestrian on October 31, 2009 at 10:27 PM

They wouldn’t be alone, the entire liberal establishment will shout from the rooftops that a Hoffman defeat is a repudiation of conservatism. Newt would be right there next to Pelosi again, telling us all that we need to find common ground or some such tripe, and that if only we had listened to him.

Little wonder that I have no faith in the GOP, even though Michele Bachman is my congresswoman and Congressman John Kline is in an adjoining district.

“‘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.”

bullcrap. Most people will vote for a leader. If the canidate is not a leader and simply tries to buy their vote we as voters are not above to being bought but we will pick a true leader over the shiny prize everytime it is offered. to bad we as a country have not had a real leader in 30 odd years.
