Quotes of the day

posted at 9:00 pm on April 16, 2011 by Allahpundit

“‘We didn’t elect you just to rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic,’ Palin said during a rally in front of the Wisconsin statehouse in Madison. ‘What we need from you, GOP, is to fight.’ Pointing to the national champion University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team, Palin said the GOP could learn from its resolve and ‘needs to learn how to fight like a girl.’

“Palin took issue with the GOP leadership for promising $100 billion in cuts from the current budget, trimming that pledge to $60 billion and finally settling for $38 billion in the recent budget battle.

“‘Then after some politics as usual and accounting gimmicks we found out — ya know that $38 billion? We’re actually borrowing that $38 billion,’ Palin said. ‘That is not courage, that is capitulation.’”

***
“‘When the history of the Tea Party is written, what you accomplished here will not be forgotten. And the 2012 election begins here,’ she affirmed.

“To drive the point home, Palin recalled the Green Bay Packers’ 2011 Super Bowl win, saying, ‘What better place to call out the liberal left and let them know, Mr. President, game on!‘”

***
“In the last few months, political professionals and insiders have been writing off the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate, convinced she won’t run for the GOP nomination in 2012 or ever. Then again, even those GOPers who are running can hardly compete with the MSM’s weird, all-consuming fascination with The Donald.

“But all it took was one powerful, pugnacious and presidential speech — just 15 minutes long — for Palin to again make herself completely relevant to the current political and policy battles raging across America…

“That line about fighting like a girl, as well as her ‘Game on!’ declaration will surely reignite speculation about presidential plans. And understandably so. Frontrunner Mitt Romney continues to fashion and refashion a saleable explanation for his Obamacare-esque Massachusetts health plan. And while Tim Pawlenty scored a coup with the hiring of hotshot campaign manager Nick Ayers, his embryonic candidacy is still a work in progress. There’s enough voter unease that another Mitch Daniels boomlet seems to be in progress.”

Oh yes, but he has not endeared himself to the Tea Party. That is the rock.

And he is, to quote a recent straight talker, an establishment puke. That is the hard place.

Dire Straits on April 17, 2011 at 1:26 AM

Sorry, bud. I like ya, and I know you’re on our side, but I have yet to see anything that suggests that Rove was giving Sarah any credibility or chance whatsoever. He’s an inside the beltway establishment guy. If he changes stripes, then fine. In my opinion he has done nothing to make me believe he is anything other than a GOP establishment front man.

No. But we don’t want to keep letting them run the GOP. We are conservatives, and we want our party back. Rove will try to put any repub in the office for the sake of having a repub in the office. I don’t want that. I want a true conservative in the office. Romney? Huck? C’mon, Dire you know they will cater to some degree to the left. They always have. Check their records.

Dire Straits on April 17, 2011 at 1:40 AM

To those who say… she needs better poll numbers… she can’t win. I have a little bedtime story.

Once upon a time in the great state of California, there was a recall election. On the ballot were several Republicans & Democrats. There was one Republican who was very well known having conquered many homicidal robots in his career. The other Republican was well known but not so much as the homocidal robot killer. The other Republican was very experienced, he was conservative and very well spoken. They said he would not win. He did not have a lead in the polls, yet he was very well loved. The GOP told us to vote for the most electable candidate, the homocidal robot killer. Lo. And. Behold. He won, sent off to Sacramento to slash spending and make government smaller and sweep out the old. The new governor promptly caved to the liberals, and lost his broom to sweep out the girlie men. The experienced, conservative and well spoken candidate returned to his job alas to never serve in the gov’s mansion (which doesn’t really exist in California which is another fabulous bedtime story).

Turns out that most folks who voted for the homocidal robot killer really wanted to vote for the experienced, well spoken, conservative Republican… maybe even enough to have actually elected him as governor.

The moral of the story is that if you vote for the most “electable” instead of following your head, you may well wind up with Arnold Schwartzeneger. And you know the rest of that story, and it does not involve living happily ever after if you still live in Kahliforn i A.

Dire Straits on April 17, 2011 at 1:38 AM

Yes. Until the very end they will. In the end, they may vote for her, but they will hold their nose while they do it. And behind the scenes they will try to rein in her agenda. You have to understand that the left does not have the market cornered on self-righteous elitism. There are some in the GOP who feel the same way. *Peggy Noonan, anyone?*

There is an element of the GOP that thinks Ivy League
elites know best what is good for the country. Those people are only marginally better than the left. See, I don’t go for elitists from either side. And sad as it may be, our side does have some.
Think Emperor Palpatine.

Dire Straits on April 17, 2011 at 1:40 AM

I said he was in between a rock and a hard place, meaning I don’t think he’s going to do it.

That he is an establishment puke was a quote from the guy you like and respect.

Cmon. Pick a fight with someone else. If you want to say something than say it for crying out loud.

I don’t care if you’re right or wrong. Just say it. You’re sooo mysterious. :)

Okay, I’m way out of line here. The GOP establishment just loooves Palin, and have a long, proven track record of defending her.

What was I thinking?!!!

Saltysam on April 17, 2011 at 1:50 AM

My take on Rove is that he is not real hip on women in politics, except maybe Kay Baily Hutchison.

kringeesmom on April 17, 2011 at 1:52 AM

I’m starting to think that obomba is Toast and Trump will of course stumble at some point. The question on my mind is “Can Sarah Beat Hillary?” This is why Palin needs a Veep with impeccable foreign policy creds (like Bolton).

Also, after today, I want to bust the unions – every dang one of them, but especially public-sector. What a useless waste of human and financial resources. I actually hope they keep up the stupidity because their days are going to be numbered.

captconrad on April 17, 2011 at 1:53 AM

Perhaps, my friend. But I’ve been let down too many times by the GOP to give them my complete trust.

I understand where you’re coming from. I just don’t share your trust of some of the current leaders of the party.

I know what I want for my country, and I don’t trust that all of these people have that goal in mind.

He used to tell me, “If you aren’t willing to give your employer your best effort for what he’s paying you, if you don’t think it’s worth it to you, then let somebody else have that job. Go find something that’s worth your efforts. Don’t cheat your employer.”

captconrad on April 17, 2011 at 2:06 AM

See, I think that’s one of the reasons that the unions in Wisconsin fought this bill by Walker. The dues are no longer automatically deducted from their checks. They have to voluntarily donate.

And I’ve read many articles (no I’m not providing links) about members who don’t like the way their union due are being used. A lot of these people may look at something like $1000 dollars a year, and think to themselves, “you know what, we could use that money for our own well-being.”
This is what they fear more than anything else. The breaking of their automatic money laundering scheme.

Just think, if the union leaders were really confident that 90 percent of their membership would send in those dues anyway, why would they fight this?

The answer is they know that it is closer to 60% or maybe even 50 % and depletes their money supply severely.

captconrad on April 17, 2011 at 2:23 AM

I hope I’m wrong, but there is no way I see the GOP establishment supporting Palin if she is fortunate enough to win the GOP nomination.

I could see Rove, Krauthammer, Brooks, Frum, Noonan, Parker, Perino, Kristol, Murphy, Carlson, and many, many more of the beltway pundits working against Palin in the general election.

What exactly has this group of pundits ever said about Palin that makes anyone think they would actually support her as a candidate?

Who would believe them anyway after the way they have dismissed Palin as a serious candidate over the years?

These establishment pundits would have to be some of the most convincing contortionists to pull that off and still remain credible.

I will have to see it to believe it. Here is Dana Perino showing that it can be done, so maybe there is hope.

I’m not sure Rove is that flexible though

My uncle was a union man who reminded me of Archie Bunker in his less lovable moments. His cellar was just full of stolen stuff from his various employers. He felt entitled to it. That’s an indication that he’s all for “soaking the rich.”

And my guess is that he would absolutely hate my guts for my conservative politics, if he were still speaking to me enough to know what they are.

But still, he was a horrible racist and I wonder how he rationalizes voting for a black man, especially one who would look down on him so haughtily.

Politics does make for strange bedfellows.

yeah, we used to have an operator here who was a former employee at a union shop. This guy raided everything he could possibly get his hands on.

We had these little medical stations thoughout the building, they had anti-itch creams, headache pills, etc. He savaged those things. Took as many home as he could. He didn’t give a damn whether any were left for the people that worked there. He had plenty for himself.

Dude was making over $20 an hour as an operator and didn’t want to buy his own aspirin. *sigh*

That’s good. It beats pistols at ten paces, guys. Especially given the accuracry of today’s weaponry.

I’d kinda like to keep you both around because I think you’re both on “the team.” All in all.

I have thought that since 2008. That must be a helluva tough pill to swallow for some of these crusty old die-hards.

it makes for a better comment board when we can agree to disagree and still be friends!..:)

Dire Straits on April 17, 2011 at 2:50 AM

Sure it is, but this is a discussion forum. We should also feel free to discuss our differences and try to persuade each other.

Huffpo?

No thanks. I’ll just wait for Ed & Allahpundit to fill me in. I can’t sift through that rubbish without getting a headache.

Saltysam on April 17, 2011 at 3:13 AM

Didn’t you accuse some the Fox News folks of not being fair and balanced?..:)

Dire Straits on April 17, 2011 at 3:14 AM

You’d have to get on the boat first before considering going overboard.

Dire Straits on April 17, 2011 at 3:12 AM

It depends upon what you mean by overboard. This isn’t just a BS forum, although some of that is welcome. This has always been a place where people have had serious discussions with some light fare thrown in. It wasn’t until yourself and some others started turning it into a chat room every night that it’s turned in to “can’t we all just be friends”. Sort of thing. Often times the most interesting discussions are the most heated, and you know the saying about if you can’t stand the heat.

She cannot be stopped. She is a force of nature. Gird your loins, RINOs and lefties. She’s comin’ for ya!

kringeesmom on April 17, 2011 at 1:40 AM

Thanks for that story. I always say, when people insist Sarah is so unelectable, she’s electable if we vote for her. It’s really that simple. So if that’s your only problem with her, if you don’t have any philosophical differences with her but rather are just a hand wringer who is worried about her “negatives,” then maybe instead of capitulating to the media’s head games you should just have some freaking faith and get behind her b/c she represents your values. You might be surprised at how it turns out.

And what does that comment add to the debate here? Nothing. You have just added nothing to the debate. Have you read the QOTD and watched the videos?

FloatingRock on April 17, 2011 at 3:24 AM

I could see Rove, Krauthammer, Brooks, Frum, Noonan, Parker, Perino, Kristol, Murphy, Carlson, and many, many more of the beltway pundits working against Palin in the general election.

chief on April 17, 2011 at 2:24 AM

Then Fox News is going to need to replace some of their pundits to remain fair and balanced. :)

FloatingRock on April 17, 2011 at 2:59 AM

That was actually a pretty humorous point you made there and I would have to agree, esp. with no Beck, but he was never a huge fan of Palin anyway.
