Quotes of the day

posted at 10:45 pm on November 30, 2010 by Allahpundit

“What man or mouse with a fully functioning human brain and a résumé as thin as Palin’s would flirt with a presidential run? It makes the political biography of Barack Obama look more like Winston Churchill’s, despite the fact that the 44th president breezed into the Oval Office as little more than a glorified state senator.

“Still, Palin is undeterred, charging ahead maniacally while declaring her intention to run for the top office in the land if ‘nobody else will.’ Adding audacity to this dopey dream is that Palin can’t stop herself from taking swings at Republican giants. In the past month alone, she has mocked Ronald Reagan’s credentials, dismissed George H.W. and Barbara Bush as arrogant “blue bloods” and blamed George W. Bush for wrecking the economy…

“If Republicans want to embrace Palin as a cultural icon whose anti-intellectualism fulfills a base political need, then have at it. I suppose it’s cheaper than therapy.

“But if the party of Ronald Reagan, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio wants to return to the White House anytime soon, it’s time that Republican leaders started standing up and speaking the truth to Palin.”

***
“TV’s Joe Scarborough, who today dismissed Sarah Palin as a symbol of ‘anti-intellectualism’ with a ‘dopey dream’ of being president, will help headline the launch next month of a new national group dedicated to restoring civility in politics.

“Scarborough, a Republican, former Florida congressman and host of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, will participate in the debut event of “No Labels” on December 13 at Columbia University in New York…

“The message of the group, encapsulated in a ‘Declaration’ written by McKinnon, is a plea for calm, reason and cooperation.”

***
“I actually had to Google what the meaning of ‘blue bloods’ was, although I could surmise that it was some kind of knock against education and coming from a family of some success. Yes, in essence that is what this statement meant. Families that work hard and achieve a long line of successful people are ‘blue bloods’ and thus, she implied the opinions of said people are jaded and elitist, even if that family lineage has a long history of public service and leadership within Republican Party. Of course, Sarah Palin is also living the American dream, albeit a different one without the help of any kind of family lineage. She has a successful career that probably most Americans would want by earning millions for her reality show, appearances on Fox, and getting paid to go places and speak her mind. Both of these narratives exemplify why this country is still as Ronald Reagan famously put it ‘a shining city upon a hill.’…

“As Republicans we cannot risk heightening this cultural war to a higher level than it is already. It is not just the liberal elites versus the ‘real’ American Republicans, it is now becoming a war within the Republican Party itself about what kind of people we want leading the party. This type of rhetoric will continue to alienate and stereotype Republicans that don’t pass cultural purity tests. We are watching the old fashioned spirit of the Republican Party that once served us so well abused for the purpose of clever talking points.”

***
“What is particularly amusing is the GOP political-consulting complex circling the wagons to protect their fortress, as reported before Thanksgiving by Politico. Based on all this history, just who is it among the prospective 2012 candidates that they think will escape the ‘too dumb to be president’ treatment Palin will undergo were she to run? George Romney’s son Mitt, like his father a successful businessman turned governor? Mike Huckabee? Or a Pawlenty, Daniels, Barbour, Rubio, Perry, Jindal etc., etc., etc.?

“Dwight D. Eisenhower was a hero-general of World War II, the man who organized D-Day, the successful invasion of Europe — yet he was mocked from one end of the country to the other as nothing more than a bumbling, unimaginative fool. With the greatest of respect to all those under consideration for 2012, there is not an Eisenhower at the starting gate.

“Whoever emerges as the winner of the 2012 GOP nomination is in reality in line to be Palinized.”

Good God. Of course Meghan “Big Mac” McCain would have to like, um, google “blue bloods.” Why do people care about anything she says? Seriously. The child is a hopeless twit. And why does Joe Scarborough get to keep claiming that he’s a Republican? I’m going to start telling people that I’m an ultra-liberal Democrat who just happens to be adamantly pro-life, pro-second Amendment and strongly in favor of limited government. I guess it’s just my perverse nature, but danged if I don’t like Sarah Palin more with each passing day.

More opening salvos in the Vichy GOP’s war on Sarah
*
Vichy Republican, former Congressman and MSDNC talk show host Joe Scarborough launched a full-scale attack on Sarah Palin Tuesday. The two-pronged assault by the man Don Imus has described as “a disgusting, backstabbing phony,” was waged in a Politico opinion piece and on MSDNC’s poorly-rated “Morning Joe” program.

At least Palin supporters can’t claim that they were “blindsided.” Politico predicted that this was coming in an October 31 article written by Mike Allen and Jim Vandehei titled “Next for GOP leaders: Stopping Sarah Palin.” The GOP establishment’s campaign against the party’s 2008 vice presidential candidate was described in the piece as an “urgent task that they will begin in earnest as soon as the elections are over.” By “in earnest,” Allen and Vandehei meant to say beyond the usual anti-Palin smears made by pretend “conservatives” such as Kathleen Parker, David Frum and Peggy Noonan. Those sort of attacks have been seen since Gov. Palin was named as John McCain’s running mate in late August of 2008.

Indeed, we have seen similar attacks on the first woman to be both Alaska’s governor and the GOP’s vice presidential candidate coming from new quarters. Probing maneuvers by Karl Rove testing Gov. Palin’s perimeter began in mid-September and were ramped up by “Bush’s Brain” just two days before the Allen-Vendehei article was published by Politico, when Rove questioned her “gravitas” and declared the “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” series on TLC to be “unpresidential.”

The next skirmish in the coordinated RINO attack on Gov. Palin came from the unlikeliest of guerrilla fighters in the person of Barbara Bush, whose diss was both sexist and condescending, as Mama Frizzy preceded her opinion that Sarah Palin “should stay in Alaska” with a back-handed compliment about the beauty of the woman she was attacking.

The assaults on Gov. Palin by Rove and Bush were both based on style, not substance, as was pointed out at Wake up Black America:

The reason why anti Sarah Palin snipes can’t debate me and her supporters on the issue of Sarah Palin’s qualifications to be president is because the arguments that go in her favor are all based on facts, where as the negatives are based on opinions, gossip, smears and lies. Palin has earned the right to run for the GOP nomination. She in essence saved the GOP from it’s certain death as a national party. While she has been going after Obama, Pelosi, Reid and others on their failed polices, other potential 2012 GOP candidates have been silently standing by watching trying to keep their powder dry.
The attacks by Scarborough are similar to the ones made by Rove and Mother Bush in this regard. Let’s examine Scarborough’s points from his Politico hit piece one by one:

http://texas4palin.blogspot.com/2010/11/scarboroughs-attack-on-sarah-palin-just.html

I really, really wish Palin hadn’t quit her governor’s post in the middle of her first term. None of these arguments would be sticking if she was still in office. The woman implemented the largest and most expensive infrastructure project in the history of North America for Chrissakes. She should never have listened to talking heads like Rush Limbaugh who told her she had to leave Alaska. She was a good and popular governor. She had a solid gig and was building experience and credibility. She could be easily fending off these naysayers if she had just stuck it out.

“Quitter” It is a hurdle Palin will have to overcome. It certainly didn’t help her. I know why she did it, and would have done it myself. No job is worth bankrupting my family. NO JOB.

Palin is no Ronald Reagan on a spreadsheet, but they are the same when it comes to them both thinking that what makes America so great & strong are its PEOPLE, not its GOVERNMENT. I believe that Reagan’s brave, strong, and cheerful attitude, along with his tax cuts are what brought America back from the brink of collapse in the 1980′s.

Our nation needs a leader that can make us believe in ourselves again. Palin does that. Just like Reagan did.

It really wouldn’t have mattered how long Sarah Palin was governor. The Left and MSM machine in this country will try to destroy her as long as she remains popular. She represents everything liberals truly hate and fear about America. Know any liberal women? Ask them how they feel about Sarah Palin. Then ask them to explain why. Most likely, they will be so busy gurgling and convulsing that they won’t be able to give you any rational explanation. Actually, it’s kind of a fun thing to do. Anyway, look at how they’re fawning all over GWB now. He is no longer a threat to their agenda. So suddenly he’s rehabilitated or something.

yeap the woman that reads and understand thomas Sowell is “intellectually uncurious. gotcha:

In “America By Heart” folks will get a feel for some of my favorite writers and thinkers. One of them is the great economist Thomas Sowell. Some of you may recall that in “Going Rogue” I mentioned Sowell’s famous book “A Conflict of Visions” to explain the way the liberal or “progressive” world view and philosophy differs from the conservative view. Sowell’s articles are always worth reading, and his most recent column is no exception. He reminds us where our attention needs to be during this lame-duck session of Congress. He notes that the Democrats have articulated their tired class warfare argument about “tax cuts for the rich,” but conservatives have still not articulated our proven time-tested argument that tax cuts spur economic growth, which in turn helps everyone from all income levels and increases tax revenue as the economy grows. Sowell reminds us:

These are not new arguments on either side. They go back more than 80 years. Over that long span of time, there have been many sharp cuts in tax rates under presidents Calvin Coolidge, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush. So we don’t need to argue in a vacuum. There is a track record.

“What does that record say? It says, loud and clear, that cuts in tax rates do not mean cuts in tax revenues. In all four of these administrations, of both parties, so-called “tax cuts for the rich” led to increased tax revenues — with people earning high incomes paying not only a larger sum total of tax revenues, but even a higher proportion of all tax revenues.

“Most important of all, these tax-rate reductions spurred economic activity, which we definitely need today.”

But as Sowell later points out, having a proven time-tested policy isn’t enough if we don’t articulate it. We need to remind people that tax cuts help everyone. And we should also remind the Democrats that many of the so-called “rich” they’re dismissing are our small business owners who account for 70% of all job creation in this country. At a time when we need job growth, we should not target job creators with tax hikes. Closing our deficit gap requires us to cut spending, but we also need to spur economic growth. With that in mind, the last thing we should do is hamper our economic innovators and entrepreneurs with excessive taxes, overly burdensome regulation, and more uncertainty. This is not a difficult argument to make. It’s common sense.

Families that work hard and achieve a long line of successful people are ‘blue bloods’

Umm, Meggie dear, what “blue bloods” usually means is that daddy or granddaddy worked really hard (or, in the case of Joe Kennedy on the wrong side of the law) and made lots of money, put it in a trust fund and then sent his kids to really expensive schools to meet other trust-fund babies.

Huckabee: “hey why did you pardon that rapist & murderer because he ‘promised he loved jesus’? why did you try to ban Coke in arkansas?”

Gingrich: “hey why did you divorce your wife by telling her you deserved a hot younger woman and comparing your ‘older’ wife to an old animal?”

Barbour: “governor of mississippi? hey why is your state flag made up of the confederate flag? why doesnt mississippi celebrate MLK day?”

Santorum: “hey tell us more about gay people”

You see… no matter what, the mediaDems will find SOME DIRT to bring down the gop nominee.

Seriously, what is funny is that this moronic piece by Scarborough will only make Palin’s path to the nomination easier. The meme has already been set: It’s Mama Grizzly against the old & tired washed-up RINOs.. Any attack on her will be seen in the same light, and only solidify her standing among conservatives.

Joe’s column certainly wasn’t pleasant but he wrote what a lot of people- left, right and independent- think about Palin.

He didn’t do himself any favors except maybe 24 hours worth of attention. Palin won’t do herself any favors by responding.

H.W. Bush and W. bush are giants? Among moderates (ie. those who are afraid of or make their living from the left wing media), maybe. But not among conservatives (ie. those of use who know that limited government, low taxes and maximum individual liberty) they are interlopers who used the Republican party.

InterestedObserver on November 30, 2010 at 11:14 PM

“As Republicans we cannot risk heightening this cultural war to a higher level than it is already. It is not just the liberal elites versus the ‘real’ American Republicans, it is now becoming a war within the Republican Party itself about what kind of people we want leading the party. This type of rhetoric will continue to alienate and stereotype Republicans that don’t pass cultural purity tests. We are watching the old fashioned spirit of the Republican Party that once served us so well abused for the purpose of clever talking points.”

An excellent point.

Which makes me ask, who wrote this for her.

Still, an accurate point nonetheless.

I have no use for Joe Scarborough as a conservative much less a Republican! After reading on Newsbusters all the stuff he has said since he has been on MSNBC he has just trended left and rarely does he come atthings from a conservative viewpoint. He reminds me of Grow Fins/Narutoboy/Jimbo3 et al in this article.

True. What else can they throw at her? They threw the kitchen sink 6 months ago. Palin hate jumped the shark, and the voters will not be falling for the Media’s Obama Love this time around. Obama will have to run against his own Record, which is dismal. Plus the Youth, who are unemployed and promised jobs after voting for their Messiah will not turn out in the numbers as in ’08.

Palin is Obama’s Kryptonite. She’ll have him bumbling and stumbling during debates, and the popcorn will be tasting good.

Perhaps the most instructive case of “too dumb to be president” is that of Gerald Ford. Elected to Congress in 1948, a man with a ready smile and outgoing personality,

Ford had won rave reviews from the liberal press when he challenged the House Republican Old Guard following Goldwater’s defeat, becoming Minority Leader

When a RINO, always a RINO

A Palin attack, is an attack on all of us.

Everybody knows that Palin is a busy woman. The former half-term governor of Alaska stays so busy these days that one wonders how this mother of five manages to juggle her new reality show, follow her eldest daughter’s dancing career and launch her latest frenetic book tour while still finding the time to insult a slew of revered presidents and first ladies.

Joe seems pretty upset about Palin’s familial life. Perhaps the point he allegedly made should be focused towards his own life. As for these revered presidents and first ladies, whom is he talking about?

Electrongod on November 30, 2010 at 11:22 PM

Scarborough’s comments are unusually dopey, even for this dope. Palin’s resume makes Obama look like a glorified state senator. It is his affirmative action presidency that makes her look like Winston Churchill.

Joe’s philosophical dyslexia has made him functionally retarded. A three-term House Rep who lucked into office in the 1994 GOP blitz, he quit five months into his fourth term — apparently lacking the vision to see 2 years ahead or the character to serve a term that he campaigned for — Scarborough had a 95% ACU rating.

Now, as the token Republican on a leftist cable blather station, Scarborough routinely attacks conservatives who campaign and vote the way he did, with no explanation. As so many pundits do, he now considers himself far too sophisticated for his previous votes, and postures as a moderate, and a non-partisan.

And from these comments, it would seem that the contrast between his fraud career as a conservative politician and his poseur career as a moderate pundit has left him without discernment. So if he’s not schtupping the blond, he’s a complete waste of oxygen.

So,exactly how did Sarah besmirch Ronald Reagan!
======================================================

A Sarah Palin presidential bid angers Peggy Noonan, Ronald Reagan’s protector
Sunday, November 07, 2010 at 06:21 AM

The ink is hardly dry on the mid term elections and the Republican Party establishment is seeking to cut down Sarah Palin.
——-

Palin was reacting to criticism of her own TV reality show by pointing out that Reagan in a different era did the same thing . She called Reagan ‘an actor’ and said ‘Wasn’t he in Bedtime with Bonzo, Bozo, something.”

Noonan saw red at this slight on her hero.

Noonan knows exactly what she is doing. The Tea Party essentially cost the Republicans the senate as they would surely have won Delaware, Nevada, Colorado if they had picked reasonable candidates.

Now Palin looks like she could cost them the White House given that she would be a very formidable candidate internally among the Republican base but polls show that she lacks any broad following in the general electorate like the Tea Party candidates who failed.

That is why Noonan is already commencing offensive operations.

So you think Romney/Huckabee/Pawlenty are going to get a free ride against Obama without the Media destroying them with attacks?

How Naive. Each one of the candidates are going to have to be attacked, very personally this time. Mitt never had any hardball attacks from the media, neither did Huckabee.

Huckabee’s past will be brought up, as will Mitt’s. Even today, Pawlenty will have to live down pardoning a sex offender, only to learn that the rapist went right back to raping children.

None of the candidates are perfect. But what more can they throw at Palin? They have thrown everything at her and guess what? She’s still standing.

portlandon on November 30, 2010 at 11:27 PM

Make no mistake, the attacks on Sarah Palin by first Rove, then Mrs. Bush and most recently Joe Scarborough were carefully planned and coordinated. These are only the opening salvos in the Republican Party establishment’s war on Sarah Palin. Chief among her many sins in their eyes is that she encouraged and supported the grass roots movement against the good old back room boys, and for this she must be destroyed politically. Ironically, while she has been busy taking the fight to Barack Obama and the liberal Democrats, the same Republicans who should have joined her in that battle have been busy planning and waging political warfare against her instead. One thing you can be sure of, more attacks have already been mapped out by the GOP elites, and we will be witnessing them in the coming weeks.

In conclusion, Scarborough got one, and only one, point right. If establishment Republicans want to criticize Gov. Palin, let them do so not in a cowardly and anonymous manner. Let them grow a spine and put their names behind their disrespect. Of course, Gov. Palin was the first person to make that suggestion, so Scarborough is simply echoing the woman he wants to destroy on that particular point.

Sarah Palin tells US government to hunt down ‘anti-American operative’ Julian Assange

Sarah Palin has called on the US government to hunt down WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange like an al-Qaeda or Taliban leader, calling him “an anti-American operative with blood on his hands”.

freedomplow on November 30, 2010 at 11:09 PM

This is one time I disagree with Sarah Palin. Julian Assange is an Australian citizen and should be tried in Asutralia first and spend a few years in an Australian jail before being tried elsewhere. This is all depends upon what is released about the Australian government and politicians though in the next short while of course.

I like how they never wonder WHy McCain picked Palin for VP instead of mitt or huck. It’s because the media had 6 inch folders of negative crap to throw at all the VP candidates. McCain picked Palin because the media/left didn’t have yards of op-research on Palin. McCain and his team failed because they didn’t write the narrative first which tells me they wanted to fail I don’t think McCain wanted too but I do think his staff wanted too.
