Quotes of the day

***
“Weird how Christie says absolutely *nothing* about the current president who can’t open his piehole w/o a teleprompter, but goes after Palin…

“.@GovChristie is bad on immigration, 2nd amendment, & supports cap & tax. And he has the gall to even *talk* about Palin?…

“I’m wondering, how long would @GovChristie, @INGovernor & @MittRomney survive under the same kind of scrutiny Palin has for years?”

***
“Chris Christie says what I’ve been saying forever: If Palin wants to prove she has the mettle to stand up to Ahmadinejad, she has to show the mettle of standing up David Gregory and George Stephanopolous. Her FaceBook/Friendly Media agenda proves she can, like Barack Obama, give a fine interview when gently questioned; it doesn’t prove she can actually stand up to the fire.

“I keep hearing she’s the only candidate who’s been baptized by fire but I haven’t actually seen her in fire for quite a long time.

“But Chris Christie, and I, are bad people for noting this, or bad people for wondering what it will take for Palin to reverse her horrible unfavorable ratings.”

***
“We thought perhaps Christie was just too damn lazy to watch 60 minutes of unscripted Palin. So, we figured we’d help him out. We compiled this short 14 minute video of Governor Palin addressing a wide range of issues including healthcare, deficit, budget, energy, environment, foreign policy, civil debate and much more unscripted in front of a group of socially liberal Democrats and Republicans in an area where the Democrat Party is strong.

“Christopher, it took us quite a while to compile this just for you. We assume you’ll take the time to watch it.”

Thailand? Vietnam? India? Any further and we are in the middle east, which is no longer west. I give up! Give em!

See Hainan?

DarkCurrent on March 1, 2011 at 2:12 AM

Puerto Rico is to the left, and across the Contiguous 48.

Kini on March 1, 2011 at 2:11 AM

Wouldn’t that be to the right if you are facing due north as decent folks do?

sharrukin on March 1, 2011 at 2:13 AM

I would agree. I think they should be cut loose to go their own way.

sharrukin on March 1, 2011 at 2:12 AM

Either way, it would require a vote of “territorial citizens.” There hasn’t even been one of those since Hawaii joined the union, I don’t think.

Help me out here, people — has Puerto Rico ever even held a vote on statehood? I’m pretty sure if it’s ever happened, it hasn’t been in my lifetime (since mid-1978).

gryphon202 on March 1, 2011 at 2:14 AM

That’s why God gave us Map Quest (???) and Tom Tom. “Are we there yet” the single biggest reason for night driving to vacation destinations.

Couple actually and it usually loses by a narrow margin.

Hmm. I’m surprised that sort of thing isn’t considered more newsworthy.

Yeah, but he said, look south then right which would be west.

Kini on March 1, 2011 at 2:20 AM

Okay,

Sarah Palin’s record as Gov – isnt, doesn’t match her rhetoric (paid for rhetoric that is)

Go take a look at the current tax debate in Alaska, look at the spending levels since Gov Frank Murkowsi, familiarize yourself with the debate over principles of runaway spending and which party actually voted for Palin’s tax hikes

when – you can look at those and compare to this keep more of your own money from Palin ask yourselves the obvious questions

Hainan is the large island south of China, near Vietnam.

sharrukin on March 1, 2011 at 2:23 AM

I could use a mathematician’s help.

If you were standing on the southern tip of Hawaii and facing south, how many degrees would you have to rotate your head clockwise to be looking in my direction?

DarkCurrent on March 1, 2011 at 2:24 AM

Getting warm. I had a girlfriend from Kuala Lumpur in high school.

Are we trying to figure out where in China, DarkCurrent lives? I’m suitably impressed and interested in that, I don’t specifics would change that.

Cindy Munford on March 1, 2011 at 2:26 AM

I watched the entire clip and she is barely holding her thoughts together to get out a cogent answer…..that’s pathetic considering this tape was tightly edited to present the highlights.

She is simply going to implode during the campaign. The sounds bites of her struggling to get her thoughts together will be her undoing.

Not everyone is a good public, off the cuff speaker and unlike Obama, who has the press protecting him from deep within his colon, she will be destroyed with her own clumsy verbiage.

rickyricardo on March 1, 2011 at 1:41 AM

That was really rotten editing job on that video. Watch the original hour long long video at the same site. You’ll get a batter idea.

Although I have to agree with you a bit (I’m a Palin supporter) some of her off-the-cuff answers were a bit “reachy” for lack of a better word.

SgtSVJones on March 1, 2011 at 2:26 AM

Geochelone on March 1, 2011 at 2:29 AM

SgtSVJones on March 1, 2011 at 2:26 AM

Gov. Palin needs to remember that “brevity is the soul of wit”. She’s got what takes, stop trying to prove it in every utterance.

Cindy Munford on March 1, 2011 at 2:29 AM

I thought Dark Current lived in Shanghai?

sharrukin on March 1, 2011 at 2:29 AM

So who’s excited about Red Eye tonight?

I heard Jonah Goldberg is showing up…

No problem, if it wasn’t a well know name and DarkCurrent’s comment history I probably would have had to google it.

Heh. That was some pretty low hanging fruit there. I could have been much tougher on ya. But I chose to be “a gentleman” instead.

I’ll have my last drink, eat a little ice cream, watch RE on the bedroom telly, and then rack out. I have to be at work at 3 p.m. tomorrow, which means I have to get up bright and early at 10 or 11 in the morning. Life it tough.

DarkCurrent on March 1, 2011 at 3:02 AM

I’d like to wander back to the subject of the thread for a moment. Why is Chris Christie’s opinion so paramount? Does he really have a sufficient list of accomplishments to be giving advice? As for Karl Rove, he’s a hired gun, if he was being paid by Gov. Palin, he would be singing an entirely different tune.

Cindy Munford on March 1, 2011 at 3:03 AM

Cindy you should live blog red eye :)

MeatHeadinCA on March 1, 2011 at 3:05 AM

MeatHeadinCA on March 1, 2011 at 3:03 AM

I work second shift. I get to watch it every night. FNC’s best show. Angela McGlowan is on also. She has some hotness working as well. And she’s sitting in the “gam chair.”

MeatHeadinCA on March 1, 2011 at 3:06 AM

Yep. The gam chair. They are placed there to pop some gams. Left leg crossed over teh right is preferred–shows more gam. If you had the opportunity to watch more often you would know that it’s true. It’s a feature. *well, for me anyway, but I’m a dirty old man*

Yeah,Baker is one of GG’s cooler guests. I like the comedian he has on also. Last name is Norton, I think. Very funny guy.

MeatHeadinCA on March 1, 2011 at 3:12 AM

Nope. That seat is all about gams and cleave. Remi Spencer was on the show about two or three weeks ago wearing a red dress with a plunging neckline. For days afterward, even when I was driving down the interstate to work, all I could see was Remi Spencer cleave. Sleep was nearly impossible for a week.

Remi is very nice looking..:)

Dire Straits on March 1, 2011 at 3:18 AM

I’m beginning to wonder if there isn’t a campaign to diminish Fox. David Brooks making the ferret comment and Fox New Sunday having their own employee (Huckabee) as a guest, I wonder if the “big get” Democrats are declining to appear?

Cindy Munford on March 1, 2011 at 3:20 AM

Is it Jill Dobson? I like her.

MeatHeadinCA on March 1, 2011 at 3:17 AM

MeatHeadinCA on March 1, 2011 at 3:17 AM

This particular one wasn’t Dobson. But, yeah she’s a choice also. I just did a search one youtube to see if there was any footage of Remi in the red dress. No luck. They had a couple, but not in the red dress. It was very “uplifting” you might say.

predator on March 1, 2011 at 3:23 AM

Cindy Munford on March 1, 2011 at 3:20 AM

I hope that is not a trend..But it very well could be..:)

Dire Straits on March 1, 2011 at 3:27 AM

OK, Cindy, how was the tea?

Now I’m getting thirsty

Do these QOTD usually go into the 5 page territory?

MeatHeadinCA on March 1, 2011 at 3:28 AM

Dire Straits on March 1, 2011 at 3:22 AM

I think Pattie Ann Brown was on Friday. I think those guys would be a afraid of Ms. Kelly.

Cindy Munford on March 1, 2011 at 3:28 AM

MeatHeadinCA on March 1, 2011 at 3:28 AM

I didn’t drink any, I just made it and put it in the glass container. As for the link of QOTD I think it’s all over the map and depends on who is up. OC will be wondering by soon.
