Quotes of the day

posted at 10:42 pm on June 20, 2011 by Allahpundit

“Palin’s approval numbers are continually all over the place because, thanks to the fact that she is so polarizing, they fluctuate dramatically based on the nature of the sample. However, there has never been a legitimate poll where Palin is even in real striking distance of Obama head-to-head. And it is critical to point out that since we are not yet in a general election and Palin has been safely ensconced inside the cuddle of Fox News, the big guns have not been fired on her by an Obama team (and mainstream media) that lusts after the chance to run against her…

“I am officially offering a $1,000 bet, at incredible 100-1 odds, that Palin will not be inaugurated president of the United States in January of 2013. This unbelievable $100,000 offer (along with details as to how I would pay in full with the money I had reserved for the charity offer that Keith Olbermann dodged) is available to the first prominent conservative who takes me up on it.

“If I am so wrong, this is the deal of a lifetime, right? A no-brainer even. So why am I so convinced that no one will even take me up on it or that hardly any of my critics will see the obvious significance when they don’t?”

***
“My guess as to why the Governor is looking more electable these days is due to her and her team’s near-flawless handling of the One Nation Bus Tour (the MSM’s email fiasco is likely to only boost her numbers further). The Palin Camp’s messaging of that event was not only managed in a way that would shame most presidential campaigns, it was also done through a very successful and unconventional circumvention of the media. Which brings me to the most important point I’ll make in this piece…

“What Ziegler and those who agree with him need to understand is that the MSM doesn’t intend to let anyone beat Barack Obama. They intend to pull a ‘Palin’ — to decimate and salt the earth behind — whoever threatens the re-election of Their Precious One. Barack Obama is a failed president. Period. If 2012 is what it should be — a referendum on the incumbent — he loses in a landslide. Therefore, the White House and their MSM allies intend to do everything they can to ensure 2012 is all about toxifying the GOP nominee — regardless of who it is — into someone who cannot be elected. Anyone who thinks the MSM will take it easier on a nominee not named Palin hasn’t been paying attention.

“The bottom line is that whoever our candidate is, beating Obama is not the existential problem — our candidate must beat the media, and other than Newt Gingrich (a victim of unforced errors), there’s not a single announced or potential Republican candidate who’s dealt with a tenth of what Obama’s MSM Palace Guards intend to hurl their way — except Sarah Palin. And not only has the Governor survived this unprecedented onslaught, but the past few months have shown that she understands this threat and is actively and effectively working on ways to overcome it.”

***
“Despite their grousing about the administration during the Netroots Nation conference, liberal activists and bloggers are relatively happy with President Barack Obama’s performance…

“Thirty-two percent of activists said they would most like Obama to have former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) as his rival next fall, with Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) a close second with 27 percent and Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) a distant third place with 12 percent. Attendees said they would least like Obama to face former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, but the majority of respondents believe Republicans would indeed pick Romney to be the GOP nominee.”

***
“My point is not simply that Obama is out of touch and beatable, but that he is way out of touch and extremely beatable. Not, of course, by some moderate Republican, but by a conservative Republican: and particularly by Sarah Palin.

“Although her bus tour is over, the media still can’t let her go. Now they’re all busy letting us know how her bus tour didn’t help her numbers at all or trying to somehow persuade us that John Ziegler’s opinion matters. I’m sorry, but I see the way people listen when Palin talks, the way they react when she shakes hands with them, and the genuine love for country she displayed in her 24,000 emails the mainstream media thought they could use to bring her down…

“I see Obama for what he is and I see Palin for what she is. And in light of that, I see nothing to fear.”

***
“Under the condition that the bet is only operative if Governor Palin runs, we accept the bet and we look forward to cashing Ziegler’s $100,000 check.

“Now, it’s up to the Governor to make sure we win this bet.”

John Ziegler has trouble with context. Put differently, he is a fool who overestimates his place in the universe. No wonder he likes Palin, and no wonder the two of them couldn’t get along. Given their difference in actual importance, the rupture took the form of a prolonged, distracted brushing off. One of several almost-last straws was a Ziegler message that Palin forwarded to her staff with this annotation: “If I have to suffer thru Ziegler’s e-mails, we ALL have to suffer thru.” Ziegler knows about the comment because Palin brilliantly forgot to omit his address from the list of recipients.

John Ziegler is latest former ally to turn on Sarah Palin
June 13, 2011
*************

Just weeks after Frank Bailey’s tell-all book about life with Sarah Palin was released, another of her former allies has turned on the ex-governor of Alaska.

John Ziegler worked with Sarah Palin for a few years, and at one point made a documentary titled Media Malpractice… How Obama Got Elected and Palin Was Targeted. So it’s probably fair to say he was a pretty big fan.

But things have soured and Ziegler has now launcehd The Sarah Palin I Know, a new website where he promises to reveal what he has learnt about Palin. So far, there is not a huge amount on the site, but Ziegler promises it will grow. Of course, you could argue that the best way to get attention is to reveal something interesting, rather than to promise that you’ll reveal something interesting at some point…

Zielger has also written an article outlining the reasons for his current lack of faith in the Palin project. He seems to still like her as a person, but he clearly doesn’t think she’s a good thing for America as a whole.

why doesn’t Ziegler bet $100k that Pawlenty will win?

No bookmaker will give odds on that one.

The personality crusades are fascinating for a fleeting time and then reality sets in and we need a President and a credible, functioning, beneficial Administration in January 2013 to replace the idiocy and awfulness that’s there now.

Dig that crazy Ozone! Chasing people off accomplishes two things: you lose votes and you lose faith in the eyes of others.

Star Trek was great, as usual, seen it now several times. I’ve always found watching favorite movies many times over is preferable to slumming with people who are insulting.

By the way, if Palin could make a credible President, the first thing she’d do is redress her misearable followers because you all chase off anyone who is potentially interested. Not a way to win a national election but I guess you haven’t noticed that yet.

I’ve always like Palin but anything — everything — I’ve ever written complimentary about her is far outweighed by the irresponsibility and sliming done to many of us by her “supporters.” I repeat, it’s no way to win an election.

Lourdes on June 20, 2011 at 11:15 PM

I guess you never learned that snarking at people doesn’t win you votes or friends.

Lourdes on June 20, 2011 at 11:12 PM

I have enough friends. Now hurry, go eat that steak.

Or are you going to post another 10 comments (all including references to how you really have to get going)?

MeatHeadinCA on June 20, 2011 at 11:15 PM

it is so sad to see the once great might antipalin forces reduced to hanging thier hats on a failed creepy man that can’t keep a job. Is this what the antipalin forces have been reduced too. hoping and praying for any savior from THAT WOMAN. sad really sad.

Yeah. I’d like to see him put up big money on who he thinks will win.

If you vote based on what is said on a comment thread at a blog, I feel very sorry for you.

Anyone keeping count yet? BTW, good digs, Lourdes. You must make so many friends and win so many votes ;)

Ziegler ought to hook up with the caught in the crosshairs guy. These two seem like a match made in media heaven.

Fine, so long as you bottle up your “Leave Britney Sarah alone!” mentality.

You people are just pathetic. You can read minds now?

I’ll vote for Perry, I’ll vote for Palin, I’ll vote for Pawlenty, Romney, Rubio, whomever, if and as they’re nominated. I’m not slinging for any one singular candidate at this rate, however, what with the ongoing psychosis it seems many are struck with similar to the “Herr Doktohr” fever of last election, now apparently contagious via Palin.

You’re not helping the GOP nor helping to get Obama sent hiking off to wherever with your ongoing malignments and underminings of others among the Republican-voting side.

You do realize you do exactly the same thing you accuse Palinistas of: snark, turning off opponents…etc. Right? You must know that.
