Quotes of the day

posted at 9:30 pm on July 18, 2011 by Jazz Shaw

“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.

I’ve always found this curious as well. Something about this “faith” — the perverted, extremist version of it — seems to appeal to people of questionable character. Too bad it’s so un-P.C. I would love to see someone study the phenomenon.

NoLeftTurn on July 19, 2011 at 12:23 AM

Part of the problem there is that some stupid members of the American black community were sold on the notion that islam was the religion of their ancestors in Africa before being sold into slavery. That con was a master stroke by the muslims.

You started the persoanl attacks with your 11:17 post. you then accused me of worship.

So doctor heal thyself.

Saying someone worships or smears isn’t namecalling, it’s describing an action.

If you said that I “hated Palin irrationally” or something else, I’d disagree with you, but I wouldn’t call it “namecalling”

“Troll”, “Obama supporter”, “moby”, “****”, F-bombs etc, that’s namecalling, and I’ve gotten two years of it around here, from the day Palin resigned, and I questioned the move.

Modern day? No, not really- but the point was that if the definition of “religion” is decided on a history of militancy, Islam wouldn’t be the only one excluded.

Hollowpoint on July 19, 2011 at 12:19 AM

OK I give, Islam is a EVIL religion. Most religions that are EVIL are in the Cult category. Most Cults have twisted a religion, Islam started out EVIL. Mohammad the founder of Islam was EVIL, why would his religion not be EVIL? Satanists do not even come close to Islam in the EVIL category.

It seemed like the last frontier. We’ve gone everywhere else with these two Republican “women” (though, I haven’t seen their birth certificates, yet).

Why yes he does, and no one is talking about his health issues here either. I wonder why that is?

Knucklehead on July 19, 2011 at 12:24 AM

I dunno — does he have any?

I’m sympathetic to Bachmann. I used to get migraines. Not so much anymore as I’ve gotten older, but they were debilitating and miserable. I can see where it would be fair to raise the issue. It would be inconvenient for POTUS to be stuck with a crushing migraine just about the time some crazy Muslim decided to drive a truck bomb into an American military base or something, wouldn’t it? Like it or not, a candidate’s health is relevant.

All of that said, I hate to say “Told ya so,” but I predicted this kind of crap was going to happen when Bachmann emerged as a contender and everyone started jumping up and down and getting excited as though she were some version of Palin but without the baggage. Everyone has baggage, and where there isn’t any, the press will manufacture it. The only difference is that the press is clean out of ammo for Palin but they’re just getting started with Bachmann.

Muslims have the longest running record on Slavery. The word slave comes from Slavs being captured by Muslims and forced into slavery. Muslims are still slave trading, they have never stopped.

Sarah Palin Defends Claim That Islam Is “Evil And Wicked Religion”

Sarah Palin Defends Claim That Islam Is “Evil And Wicked Religion”
Ben Smith points out that Sarah Palin has come out in defense of evangelist Franklin Graham, Billy Graham’s son, who was disinvited by the Army from an official ceremony because of his history of anti-Islam remarks.

For once, this counts as Palin making real news: She’s siding with someone who unequivocally said Islam is a “very evil and wicked religion” in 2001.

In defending Graham, Palin claimed that Graham’s remarks were directed only at radical and violent Jihadists:

His comments in 2001 were aimed at those who are so radical that they would kill innocent people and subjugate women in the name of religion. Are we really so hyper-politically correct that we can’t abide a Christian minister who expresses his views on matters of faith? What a shame.

I didn’t say you (or anyone) should base their vote “based on what anyone else thinks about it.”

My point was: how is it fair to bring up someone’s supposed “health issues”, but bringing up their conduct in office (including leaving office) is off-limits? Seems inconsistent to me.

Do I lie awake worrying about whether Cain (if elected) will have to undergo Chemo again? Nope.

MeatHeadinCA on July 19, 2011 at 12:43 AM

from my understanding he has passed the 5 year mark which means he is very unlikely to have a recurrence.

So no I don’t worry about it either

Bachmann has since retreated from her remark about Obama having anti-american views. It was on Face the nation a couple weeks ago. She said she doesn’t believe that anymore or something like that.

I agree with her that not all cultures are equal. Multiculturism sucks.

Rick Perry tones down ‘call’ language

Amid all the tea-leaf reading about Rick Perry and a presidential run, it’s been hard to discern how much of the interest is coming from the man himself, or from his backers.

And Perry did little to clear things up today, when he walked back some of his language about a ‘calling’ from a Des Moines Register interview this weekend. He also sounds, as this report notes, somewhat less wedded to a potential run than people expected:

There’s a lot of different ways to be called,” Perry said Monday after signing a health-care bill at the Capitol. “My mother may call me for dinner. My friends may call me for something. There are people that are calling from all across this country into either me directly or to people that they know and saying man we wish you would consider doing this.”

I think you misunderstand exactly what multiculturalism is. Bachmann gives a brief reference to what most academics describe multiculturalism as – essentially tribalism. A separate but equal tribalism. That’s not something I support.

As other commenters have pointed out, there is an American culture that promotes individual freedom. That’s worth pursuing.
