Quotes of the day

“Sarah Palin is the subject of a new film that opens Friday. John Wilson, the founder of the Golden Raspberry Awards, which annually recognize the worst movies of the year, seemingly can’t wait for “The Undefeated.”

“She’s the political equivalent of what the Razzies are all about and she’s hysterically funny if you don’t stop and think, ‘Oh, my God, she could’ve been vice president!’ ” John Wilson told Tom O’Neil at the Awards Tracker blog.

“Past winners of Razzies for “worst actress” include such luminaries as Pia Zadora, Bo Derek and the Spice Girls.”

“Herman Cain says voters across the country should have the right to prevent Muslims from building mosques in their communities.

“Our Constitution guarantees the separation of church and state,” he said. “Islam combines church and state. They’re using the church part of our First Amendment to infuse their morals in that community, and the people of that community do not like it. They disagree with it.”

“Asked by host Chris Wallace if any community could ban a mosque if it wanted to, Cain said: “They have a right to do that.”

“I think that nothing could disenfranchise an eligible voter more than finding out that ineligible voters are voting,”

Tre Hargett, Tennessee secretary of state

“And Republicans appear to be winning over public opinion. Polls shows that an overwhelming majority of voters back ID requirements.”

“In Tennessee, the Republican secretary of state, Tre Hargett, is preparing plans and public service announcements to make sure voters in his state adjust smoothly to the new rules. They’ll be required to show photo ID at the polls and to provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote.”

Oh, no! The guy who’s hosted 35 fundraisers and raised $86 million in the first six months of the year can’t get out to do more of them!

By the way, over at the lefty site, FireDogLake:

Jim Messina tried to claim in his video announcing the Q2 numbers that 98% of all donations were $250 or less, and the average contribution was $69 from around 550,000 contributors. That gives the impression of a grassroots-fueled army. Messina didn’t say that these numbers excluded the DNC contributions, mostly maxed-out $30,000 donations. And now, the fact of these bundlers complicates Messina’s narrative even more. It’s possible – in fact, given the numbers, it’s likely – that a portion of the under-$250 contributions were collected by bundlers. I think we can say with confidence that bundlers aren’t going to “ordinary Americans” for those collections. They are rich elites who go to their rich elite friends.

In fact, Obama for America only cited less than half of their total contributions – $21.4 million – as “unitemized,” meaning they were smaller than $200 donations that don’t need to be teamed with identification. You can pretty safely bet that almost no DNC Victory Fund donations were under $200. That would mean that 3/4 of all money collected by Obama for America and the DNC Victory Fund were through donations over $200. That syncs with the bundler data.

“I’ve been working 14 hours a day on trying to stand this … agency up, really for more than a year now,” she said. “When I go home, I’ll do more thinking then. But I need to do that thinking not from Washington.”

Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard law professor tapped by President Obama to set up the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), said Monday she would think about running for Sen. Scott Brown’s (R-Mass.) seat in 2012.

In response to a question, Warren told MSNBC that she needed to go home and think about whether to run against Brown.

Most bloggers on the right side of the blogosphere haven’t increased their traffic significantly in years. Moreover, the right side of the blogosphere as a whole is definitely shrinking in numbers as bloggers that have had trouble getting traction are quitting and fewer and fewer bloggers are starting up new blogs.

Why is this? There are several reasons for it.

1) The Right is structured differently than the Left. We have a large, effective talk radio presence and Tea Parties for new conservatives to sink their energy into. So conservatives have more viable ways to get involved in the movement outside of blogging than the Left did when George W. Bush came into office.

2) The rise of social networking has peeled a lot of people off, too. A lot of people who’d have been haunting blogger comment sections five years ago are spending their days on Twitter and Facebook now.

Herman Cain says voters across the country should have the right to prevent Muslims from building mosques in their communities.

Ridiculous.
This ought to finish his campaign.

Oh boy. Lots of red, red meat here.

Interesting QOTD.

“Oh, no! The guy who’s hosted 35 fundraisers and raised $86 million in the first six months of the year can’t get out to do more of them!

I’m getting an error message on the Mark Knoller tweet. Link problem or did he delete it?

That’s the best quote you can find for “The Undefeated” and Sarah Palin?

conservative pilgrim on July 18, 2011 at 9:38 PM

Even though Cain is not my first choice for POTUS (I’d rather see him as SecTreasury) he’s being unfairly maligned for his stance on this Mosque. I know, at least in Maryland, most new commercial construction -which a Mosque would fall under- requires a period of public disclosure and hearings during which the neighborhood at large can offer objections to the proposed use of the property. Many projects are scuttled as a result of these hearings or subsequent appeals and they range from something as simple as a sign to something as large as an apartment complex.

The weak argument has bee that someone can build whatever they want in America, but that’s not true by any stretch. When Conservatives make that argument, they’re displaying spineless PC and they should be called out for it.

If you polled the 9/11 families, I wonder what they would think about opening a mosque in TN.

faraway on July 18, 2011 at 9:43 PM

I completely agree with Cain. Islam is not a religion. It is a political system with religious undertone and the Muslims have used our Constitution and its emphasis on freedom of religion to slip its Sharia political system through the door.

Go Cain!

“She’s the political equivalent of what the Razzies are all about and she’s hysterically funny if you don’t stop and think, ‘Oh, my God, she could’ve been vice president!’ ”

She’s not an actress and she didn’t appear in the movie — they used video and sound clips of her. This Wilson guy has a bad case of PDS.

Most bloggers on the right side of the blogosphere haven’t increased their traffic significantly in years.

Maybe because people have figured out that right blogosphere is a wolf in sheep’s clothing and all blogsters are actually paid shills of the establishment.

For example, having the quote of the day include a gratuitous silly insult about a person whom most of the HA community cares about is a sure way to turn up the numbers right? /s

promachus on July 18, 2011 at 9:44 PM

“Asked by host Chris Wallace if any community could ban a mosque if it wanted to, Cain said: “They have a right to do that.”

An angry mob might do this, but people in America living under the Constitution can’t do this. Herman needs to spend a little time with Mark Levin learning about the Constitution.

Kataklysmic on July 18, 2011 at 9:49 PM

Herman Cain says voters across the country should have the right to prevent Muslims from building mosques in their communities.

Wrong, on so many levels. But, if a mosque is turned into a recruiting tool for those who want to kill us, then it should be dealt with on a national security basis. I like Cain, but no government — federal, state, or local — has the right to prevent worship of whatever religion a citizen chooses nor stand in the way of same, in any manner. This is the bedrock of our entire nation.

But, if you use that religious protection to do harm to others, you’ve lost that right and you should be dealt with in the harshest manner.

I agree. I don’t mind that Cain is against Islam; however, the first step to rectifying the problem, if you will, is to stop being so tilted in favor of Islam. The US gov’t can Constitutionally profile Muslims.

(Note to AP: I thought the $86 million was for this just-ended second quarter.)

..also, they’re spinning his second quarter haul of $86 million as absolutely marvy when it ain’t so. Do the math and understand why he will fall short of his billion goal and do the reading to understand why it won’t matter even if he does get the billion.

In Islam, a mosque is always built on conquered land/territory. The Cordoba House/Mosque is on land that they believe was conquered on 9/11.
That is what makes the Ground Zero Mosque different than other Mosques.

We need to wake up and educate ourselves on Islam or we will lose this “covert” war.

Wow…uh…no. We have the right to control development and the right to protect ourselves against hateful, maggoty Muslims who want to kill us (and who teach their children to hate non-Muslims). But our constitution very specifically protects the rights of all citizens to practice their religion. Remember? Freedom of religion, not freedom from religion?

Exactly. The GZM is a celebration of the WTC attacks, a tribute to what they see as a great victory. It’s what islam calls a rabat, which is not a traditional mosque. Explained here: Islam Center’s Eerie Echo of Ancient Terror

Our constitution guarantees the free exercise of religion, it does not override community building codes. Exercise does not guarantee any kind of structure desired by a group of muslim in any location they desire. There’s a dozen simple ways that New York City could have stopped the GZM, but Bloomblob being what he is, punted.

That may be the case, but he may be a bad Muslim. The more I learn about Islam, the more I realize that the only good Muslims are bad ones.

I disagree. As far as I know,

1) Muslims aren’t a huge voting bloc (yet).

2) IF a Muslim is worried about freedom and freedom of Religion, they should vote for the candidate the most suspicious of Islam. Are you really telling me that if Barack Obama (a man clearly not interested in freedom) is up against a solid conservative that sees the threat Islam poses to freedom, a freedom loving Muslim is going to vote for Obama?

“I never acted in a film. Never auditioned for a film. Never had any input to The Undefeated. Then again, it’s not like you actually need to do anything to get recognized by liberals these days.”

I’m sure Sarah could come up with some good ones. But I don’t think she’ll get the Razzie. Apparently, there’s some debate about giving it for documentaries since no one actually did any acting. Secondly, they’d have to watch it. All 500 of their members.

HAHAHAHA!!!

Oh man, it’s so sad.

Not from what I saw, and the way I was treated in Turkey last fall. They brag that they don’t make their women “cover up” but that is where it ends. They treat their women and all female tourists with disdain and as second class citizens.

Knucklehead on July 18, 2011 at 10:11 PM

I wasn’t talking about Turks in general. Clearly they are becoming even more extreme. That must be because Islam is still part of their culture. The move towards secularism just wasn’t enough.

No, I’m talking about the people that probably don’t fit in very well in Turkey anymore. Why? They’re bad Muslims.

MeatHeadinCA on July 18, 2011 at 10:15 PM

Alienating American Muslims who value freedom of religion is a mistake. Obviously their view of Islam is different from the radical’s view.

Dongemaharu on July 18, 2011 at 10:09 PM

And who are these Muslims who value freedom? When was the last time you saw a peaceful protest of Muslims who value their freedom? Hummmm?

I must have missed those peaceful freedom loving Muslims after 9/11. Or for the last 10 years for that matter. if they love America, then show us. Confront the radicals and come out in full force to reform the Islamic system!

I guarantee that you will never see that! Never!

The vast majority of US Muslims are good citizens.

itsnotaboutme on July 18, 2011 at 9:52 PM

When I see some of those good Muslims get out in front of a camera and denounce Sharia, get back to me. So far I’ve seen one lady on BOR and she was Canadian.

Knucklehead on July 18, 2011 at 9:59 PM

When will you get in front of a TV camera & denounce Sharia?
Because while most are good citizens, there are obviously jihad-loving Islamo-fascists out there, too.
Enough of them to warrant second thoughts about slamming anything Islamic.
But that doesn’t negate the rights of peaceful Muslims to assemble.

“In Tennessee, the Republican secretary of state, Tre Hargett, is preparing plans and public service announcements to make sure voters in his state adjust smoothly to the new rules. They’ll be required to show photo ID at the polls and to provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote.”

Give Knucks the chance and I bet she would. You’re just speculating that many Muslims would be willing to denounce sharia on TV. I know for a fact that Knucklehead would. Why? Because she says so right here. Where are the thousands millions of Muslims in America going on political blogs denouncing sharia?

MeatHeadinCA on July 18, 2011 at 10:18 PM

Um, Islam’s a religion:

Holy book representing infallible word of higher power? Check.

Higher power with a mean streak and ancient sense of justice? Check.

Followers who get enraged when logical flaws in ancient text are mocked? Check.

Hundreds of millions of followers who are convinced everyone who doesn’t believe like them deserve eternal damnation? Check.

Loves martyrs? Check.

Yep – sounds like a religion to me. I don’t like this particular religion, but it’s a religion. Does it have political ambitions – absolutely. Does it meddle in state affairs? Of course. That’s what religions tend to do, at least the popular ones.

Like I said above. Any (supposed) Muslim that values freedom and freedom of religion is going to support people that are suspicious of Islam and point out that many Muslims are trying to use the state to set up some sort of Sharia.

I find it both fascinating and disgusting at the same time to watch the Progressive Leaders and all of their sycophants and unwitting dupes, on both sides of the aisle, as they attack Sarah Palin and everything that she stands for with a fervor and unceasing rage that makes Lord Voldemort seem like Deepak Chopra in comparison.

Sarah Palin is receiving more attention than all of the Republican Presidential Nominees, including the Legacy, Mitt Romney, combined.

And she’s not even running…yet.

kingsjester on July 18, 2011 at 10:21 PM

Bulldoze every mosque in America to the ground. Then at every former mosque site put up a statue of Charles Martel beheading Mohammad, the mass murdering, torture loving sadist, lying, thieving, rapist of little girls, Islam’s and Muslim’s “Perfect Man”.

IlikedAUH2O on July 18, 2011 at 10:23 PM

Herman Cain says voters across the country should have the right to prevent Muslims from building mosques in their communities.

If so, then should we have the right to prevent blacks from building churches in their communities, too?

And what if the Muslims trying to build mosques in their own communities are black, Herman?

Send this jackass back to Pepsico.

Jut on a numbers basis Cain is probably doing the right think politically. he needs to make sure he doesn’t come off as antifree religion but if he frames the muslim debate thing the proper way I think it helps him in the primary esp IA and SC. Not sure how it would work for him in a general….

This is why I say don’t be afraid to challenge Islam. If there’s any good in it, it will come out; and if there’s any bad in it, it will come out as well. I’m not going to hold my breath that the majority of Muslims will like this – but I don’t like pandering to people too stupid to see the threat Islam is to freedom loving people.

Dongemaharu on July 18, 2011 at 10:30 PM

Look,well-heeled muslims shop @ my Walmart. When I see this women in their fancy clothes and hijabs I want to wrap the scarf around their necks. When I see them with little daughters my heart cries out for those poor little girls.
I go out of my way to be bsy in the back when I see a hijab so my freedom-loving, dog-loving, formerly Jewish, always female self won’t have to possibly help such people.
I despise islam-but I also wonder if I’m wrongly tarring an entire group.
Maybe some of those women I try to aviod are patriotic Americans who just dress that way because that’s how they feel the most comfortable.

Yes. We have bought into the lie that Islam is in the category of religion. It’s been the narrative that has been drummed into the public psyche since 9/11 and before.

The Islamists know how to use lies and propaganda to the fullest and our brain dead media and politicians have played right into their hands.

Moreover, the right side of the blogosphere as a whole is definitely shrinking in numbers as bloggers that have had trouble getting traction are quitting and fewer and fewer bloggers are starting up new blogs.

Well, I personally disagree with what Cain is saying (not the sentiment, though). I’m talking about a general politician that is bold enough to point out that A LOT of violence is associated with Islam. Nations that are predominantly Muslim aren’t as developed, don’t treat people with much dignity, are tyrannical, corrupt, often a threat to the US, &c.

Would you be concerned if an American politician came out hard against Communism? Would you say it’s a risky move?

Dongemaharu on July 18, 2011 at 9:56 PM

How convenient you took my remarks out of context, so as to suggest that I was arguing anything negative about Muslims as a whole or that we start discriminating against them or anyone on account of religion. You, sir or madam, are as wrong as was Herman Cain in his remarks. So that others who might have seen only your slur, I repeat my entire comment:

Herman Cain says voters across the country should have the right to prevent Muslims from building mosques in their communities.

Wrong, on so many levels. But, if a mosque is turned into a recruiting tool for those who want to kill us, then it should be dealt with on a national security basis. I like Cain, but no government — federal, state, or local — has the right to prevent worship of whatever religion a citizen chooses nor stand in the way of same, in any manner. This is the bedrock of our entire nation.

But, if you use that religious protection to do harm to others, you’ve lost that right and you should be dealt with in the harshest manner.
