Quotes of the day

posted at 10:56 pm on October 18, 2010 by Allahpundit

“Christine O’Donnell’s campaign just emailed me the following response from campaign manager Matthew Moran:

“‘Christine overwhelmingly won her primary battle against the establishment candidate, so Ms. McCain’s vast experience in politics and running for office probably won’t influence many Delawareans of any age to listen to her latest rant. Her parents are truly a class act, and am certain they brought her up to be more respectful of a possible future colleague. As Christine rises in the polls, and repairs the damage done by the establishment with their false statements, the campaign will continue to focus on jobs and the out of control federal spending.’”

***
“Can it be that the conscience of the Republican Party resides in a 26-year-old woman who has never held elective office and derives her authority, not to mention name recognition, for the fame of her father? I am referring to Meghan McCain, daughter of the once-forthright John, who said of Christine O’Donnell, the erstwhile witch and current Republican senatorial candidate from Delaware, that she is a ‘nut job.’…

“Meghan McCain put her finger on the sorry state of the GOP. It has fallen into the arms of Beckian extremists, a horde of people who look to the oddly-venerated Glenn for wisdom and primers on the constitution. It is a movement that reveres a past that never existed, that rewrites history with an ideological pen and has things happen in the past that they seek for the future. As Wilentz points out, James Madison and other founding fathers wanted a strong central government and had a healthy distrust of organized religion. Smart guys, the founding fathers.”

OK guys, unless she says something about a female candidate’s appearance, knock off the comments about her weight and her cleavage. Let the loony left continue to be the misogynistic, sexist ones.

Most American women are not teenage-sized zeros or twos with no cleavage.

Stick to the issues. Stupid stuff comes out of her mouth, leave it at that.

Anybody remember Ron Reagan, the actor/dancer son of Ronaldus Maximus who was frequently invited on political shows (and entertainment shows, but only to talk politics) while his Dad was in office? By the end, he even had his own talk show on a cable network (in those days nobody watched the “off” cable networks, they were only there because they didn’t charge much to the cable companies and enabled them to claim “137 Channels” without mentioning “including about a dozen you might ever actually watch”).

Like Meghan, his only claim to fame was his name and the fact that as the child of a prominent Republican with liberal views he might embarrass the Right with what he says. Ron had no more political background or experience than Meghan does, but at least he wasn’t a complete idiot so his diatribes could possibly be viewed as embarrassing to his parents and Republicans.

If Meghan ever did anything besides embarrass herself (or her parents, who should have put out the “Well, she’s adopted and the dark one is ours” excuse as soon as she went public) I never saw it. I mean, I’ve cringed at how much she embarrasses herself with her stupidity and naivete that the people putting her on the air do so for any reason other than to mock her and embarrass Republicans.

Did you remember this about Scholz:

In addition to his fame as a musician, Scholz also found success as an inventor and businessman. In 1981, he formed Scholz Research & Design, Inc., a company founded to create high-tech music equipment. After first developing the Power Soak, a volume-control device, SR&D introduced the Rockman, a small and inexpensive guitar amplifier with headphones. The Rockman proved phenomenally popular with other musicians, and the capital generated from its sales helped fund Scholz’s further musical ambitions.

…what a leader,innovator,and Rock’n'Roll’a…..

As Wilentz points out, James Madison and other founding fathers wanted a strong central government and had a healthy distrust of organized religion. Smart guys, the founding fathers.

Yet federalism won the day. And, at the risk of causing the board to explode in a religious war, of the 204 men who are most often considered the Founding Fathers, all but three belonged to distinctly Christian denominations (the other three were Unitarian; Jefferson did not believe in the divinity of Christ, yet often called himself a Christian). Madison himself based the three branches of government on Isaiah 33:22 and as President, in 1812 signed a federal bill which economically aided the Bible Society of Philadelphia in its goal of the mass distribution of the Bible. If he was distrustful of organized religion, he hid it well.

General Palin Speech

Somewhere in England

June 5th, 1944(November 2 2010)
——————————–

The big camp buzzed with a tension. For hundreds of eager rookies, newly arrived from the states, it was a great day in their lives.*(Conservative Republican Women Candidates)*

Palin strode down the incline and then straight to the stiff backed “Guard of Honor”.She looked them up and down. She peered intently into their faces and surveyed their backs. He moved through the ranks of the statuesque band like an avenging wraith and, apparently satisfied, mounted the platform with Lieutenant Michelle Bachmann and Major General Christine O’Donnell, the Corps Commander, at her side.

General Palin arose and strode swiftly to the microphone. The men snapped to their feet and stood silently.Palin surveyed the sea of brown with a grim look. “Be seated”, she said. The words were not a request,but a command. The General’s voice rose high and clear.

“Men, this stuff that some sources sling around about America wanting out of this Vote, not wanting to Vote, is a crock of bullshit. Americans love to Vote, traditionally. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle. You are here today for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your homes and your loved ones. Second, you are here for your own self respect, because you would not want to be anywhere else. Third, you are here because you are real men and all real men like to Vote. When you, here, everyone of you, were kids, you all admired the champion marble player, the fastest runner, the toughest boxer, the big league ball players, and the All-American football players. Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise Liberals. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn’t give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That’s why Americans have never lost nor will ever lose a war; for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.”

“My men don’t surrender”, Palin continued, “I don’t want to hear of any Voter under my command being captured unless he has been hit. Even if you are hit, you can still Vote back.

“Don’t forget, “Palin barked, “you men don’t know that I’m here. No mention of that fact is to be made in any ballots. The world is not supposed to know what the hell happened to me. I’m not supposed to be commanding this Vote. I’m not even supposed to be here in Delaware. Let the first b*stards to find out be the Goddamned Liberals. Some day I want to see them raise up on their p*ss-soaked hind legs and howl, ‘Jesus Christ, it’s the Goddam*ed Third Army again and that son-of-a-f*cking-bitch Sarah Palin”.

No real history, no real success in any kind of business and what that says to my generation is one day you can just wake up and run for senate….no matter how lack of experience you have…”

As others have noted, this describes the Manchild Obama to a tee. I would add that the business part also describes her, her father (and a woefully large number of sitting and recently deceased Senators). The difference is that at least COD understands free-market principles, entrepreneurship and so forth. Meanwhile her opponent has no business experience either, but is (not unlike Barack) a community activist who went on to become the tax-hiking county commish, which is a political job.

Buy Danish on October 19, 2010 at 7:32 AM

Y’all cut her some slack. Her daddy is famous for bashing the right and she’s just carrying on the family tradition.

Kafir on October 19, 2010 at 7:32 AM

the once-forthright John, who said of Christine O’Donnell, the erstwhile witch and current Republican senatorial candidate from Delaware, that she is a ‘nut job.’…

Coming from the nut-case McCain who passed unconstitutional legislation inhibiting free speech, who tried harder than ever to provide amnesty for illegal aliens and still has it up his sleeve, and now wants to make it illegal to purchase nutritional and vitamin supplements and over the counter aspirin, antihistamine and decongestant without a prescription that requires a doctor’s visit.

So far as McCain’s concerned, he’d have fought for ObamaCare had it been McCain delivering it from the mighty Oval Office. And he’d certainly have fought for immigration amnesty for illegal aliens to become instant US citizens like Obama’s auntie has been processed.

NUT JOB MCCAIN
It was an atrocity that he won the GOP ’08 ticket. THAT of itself proves just how completely the Republican establishment IS RINO, and how foolish the Republican Party primary system remains. A SINGLE NATIONAL PRIMARY VOTING DAY; then a run-off between the top two to determine standing on the ticket, whether Potus or VP.

Dreams of 2008
Obama’s Lost Magic

By Klaus Brinkbäumer
=======================
Part 1: Obama’s Lost Magic
Part 2: Obamaland Is No Longer United

Usually the president’s team looks robust. It is filled with clever people who begin work at 6 in the morning and go home at 11 at night. But Obamaland is no longer the cohesive place it was during the presidential election, when everyone was united behind the same vision. Disappointed supporters are quitting, exhausted staff will leave after the midterms and the weak are being thrust aside. And when people talk about the mood in 2008, they sound like former classmates at a school reunion 20 years on: Remember when we were still young?

Barack Obama had a mandate. He promised to change America, change Washington and change the nation. He said that everyone would have to invest something and give something. He said that everyone would have to roll up their sleeves and work hard. Yet 69 million Americans still voted for him. Indeed, they elected him for precisely this reason.

Back then, Obama was like a high-school graduate who talked about wanting to sail around the globe, become a writer or a president. Instead, the dreamer started work as a trainee bank clerk. Now he has become a bank manager. It’s certainly not a bad position, and he’s doing rather well for himself. But every now and again he remembers who he once was and his dream about prolonging his youth. He knows it would have been difficult, but at least he could have given it a shot.

Only he didn’t even try.
—————————–

Of course the American media is largely responsible for the impression people get of President Obama as well as the state of the nation as a whole. Fox News, Rupert Murdoch’s TV news channel, has come to specialize in partisan mudslinging. Four of the potential future Republican presidential candidates are on Fox’s payroll. The liberal channels are only different — they are no longer any better. CNN has atrophied into a soapbox for journalist presenters. There is no analysis anymore on American TV, and little news — only polemical attacks and shouting delivered in 90-second chunks.

dogsoldier on October 19, 2010 at 6:57 AM

I thought the same thing. James Madison was no John Knox but to claim he distrusted “organized religion” is to reveal a poverty of knowledge of the man’s actual thoughts and writings. If Madison was leery of anything, it was state-sponsored religion, not organized religion.

It is as if those WaPo writers have only read books written by people who have only read books about James Madison, but have not actually read James Madison. (That is not surprising given how some journalists get the shingles at the thought of anyone reading “obscure” texts written by men who are no longer alive.)

Madison did author Memorial and Remonstrance and guide Jefferson’s Statute for Religious Freedom through the Virginia Assembly.

Yes. The Founding Fathers recognized what a disaster it would be to follow in the footsteps of the world’s other governments by requiring adherence to a particular church/doctrine.

Even her dad fired Meghan for being so not-right on his trail. Lacking brains, Meghan’s “business” experience is limited to sticking her media-access nose into other people’s affairs.

“A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people’s business.”

“Our greatest pretenses are built up not to hide the evil and the ugly in us, but our emptiness. The hardest thing to hide is something that is not there.”

“An empty head is not really empty; it is stuffed with rubbish. Hence the difficulty of forcing anything in to an empty head.”

“It is not at all simple to understand the simple.”

“What are we when we are alone? Some, when they are alone, cease to exist.”

“The less satisfaction we derive from being ourselves, the greater is our desire to be like others.”

“What monstrosities would walk the streets were some people’s faces as unfinished as their minds.”

Eric Hoffer, self taught, self made Longshoreman Philosopher produced ten books and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in February 1983 by President of the United States Ronald Reagan.

The female Levi Johnston.

Except when she gets dumped after her usefulness I won’t feel as bad for her personally. If this is what Maverick has to show for raising a rich kid, I’m not impressed.

The petals are falling from the fading O’blooma.

Without his ONE VOICE MEDIA, he’s stuck with only himself in most unflattering exposure being the lackluster blustering bitter clinger to absolute power neo-Marxist.

There is a fundamental difference between the appeal of a mass movement and the appeal of a practical organization. The practical organization offers opportunities for self-advancement, and its appeal is mainly to self-interest. On the other hand, a mass movement, particularly in its active, revivalist phase, appeals not to those intent on bolstering and advancing a cherished self, but to those who crave to be rid of an unwanted self. A mass movement attracts and holds a following not because it can satisfy the desire for self-advancement, but because it can satisfy the passion for self-renunciation.

Eric Hoffer, The True Believer (1951), Part I, Ch. 2: “The Desire For Substitutes”

Tea Party voters should bear in mind to avoid delusion, to maintain focus as a practical organization of voters to delete authoritarianism from its illegitimate position within our constitutional governance.

You KNOW that is the general direction she is headed in anyway!

She’ll have to wrestle Kathleen Parker for that honor.

Nothing libs enjoy more than a “conservative” who does nothing but badmouth conservatives.

My point was more to the hypocrisy of Meggers McPain and the glass houses syndrome. COD is not an ideal candidate. The discrimination lawsuit she filed is particularly problematic to me as a conservative. However she is a hell of a lot better on policy than the bearded bald Marxist and if I lived in Delaware I would not hesitate to vote for her.

Mega-Mac was considered, but the producers didn’t want to spend the extra cash to reinforce the dance floor.
