Quotes of the day

posted at 9:30 pm on March 11, 2012 by Allahpundit

“President Obama’s re-election campaign is beginning an intensified effort this week to build support among women, using the debate over the new health care law to amplify an appeal that already appears to be benefiting from partisan clashes over birth control and abortion.

“On Monday, mailings will go out to one million women in more than a dozen battleground states in three separate versions for mothers, young women and older women, campaign and party officials said.

“An effort called ‘Nurses for Obama’ will begin on Wednesday, with nurses nationwide enlisted to be advocates for the health care law in their communities…

“Through the month, ending with what the campaign’s headquarters has designated a ‘Women’s Week of Action,’ campaign field offices will organize phone banks, campus activities, house parties and media events featuring local residents helped by the law, officials say.”

***

“You’ve got to hand it to Democratic strategists. Who would have thought six months ago that in the lead up to perhaps the most important presidential election of our time, the hottest political topic in the country would not be the weak economy, high unemployment, the huge national debt, record gas prices, or turmoil in the Middle East. Instead it’s Women’s Rights, or at least that’s what the Democratic party is calling it while miraculously managing to keep a straight face.

“A term that was once used in conjunction with women’s suffrage and the right to vote is suddenly synonymous in the modern day with free contraceptives at the expense of others. Gone are the likes of true icons like Susan B. Anthony. Now we have Sandra Fluke and her heroic crusade to mandate that her sexual lifestyle choices be subsidized. How proud the Democratic party must feel right now to have successfully revitalized the civil rights movement in the 21st century by equating it with luxury entitlement. The media must feel pretty good too. They’ve actually been able to substantiate this ridiculous narrative to the American public… or at least a targeted voting block within the American public.

“The Republicans’ War on Women – that’s the poll-tested talking point coming out of Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC these days. Despite the absurdity and insulting nature of the claim, the mantra sure is getting a lot of attention. It’s also proving to be an effective weapon – one of several weapons from a year-long arsenal of distractions designed to keep the Republican party off step, off topic, and constantly on the defensive at a time when President Obama is wrapping up what is surely the most dismal presidential term of my lifetime.”

***

“One woman in the Iditarod crowd yelled at the senator. Another was more civil, but made the same point: Murkowski ticked off a lot of women with that vote.

“‘With her vote, Murkowski showed her true colors and put her party’s anti-female agenda ahead of the Alaska women she is supposed to represent,’ Fairbanks resident Michelle Cason wrote to the editor of the city’s Daily News-Miner.

“Before the weekend was out, Murkowski told the Anchorage Daily News that she regretted her vote.

“‘I knew going into it that there was conflict there,’ Murkowski said in a telephone interview this past week. When she got home to Alaska, she knew. ‘I think I made a mistake.’”

***

“When a Wall Street Journal-NBC News survey asked in the summer which party should control Congress, 46 percent of women favored Democrats and 42 percent preferred Republican control.

“But in a survey released Monday, compiling data since the beginning of the year, that figure had widened considerably to a 15-point advantage for the Democrats, according to polling by the team of Democratic pollster Peter Hart and Republican Bill McInturff. Fifty-one percent favored Democratic control; only 36 percent wanted to see the Republicans in charge…

“GOP pollster Kellyanne Conway, an adviser to presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s campaign, said Republicans need to return to pocketbook and fiscal issues. ‘We know what works,’ she said, ‘and we need to get back to it.’…

“A GOP strategist, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the party’s situation frankly, said: ‘It’s devastating. I don’t think it’s going to go away. I think it’s going to be a significant challenge the Republican nominee is going to inherit.’”

***

“Now, the contraception controversy ‘has really closed the intensity gap with unmarried (Democratic-leaning) women in particular, who weren’t as likely to turn out,’ said Democratic pollster Celinda Lake. ‘Republicans have done what, honestly, we couldn’t have done better if we’d designed a strategy ourselves.’…

“Meanwhile, many conservatives have come to believe the entire controversy was ginned up by Obama.

“‘It’s straight from the Saul Alinsky radical playbook – stage a fake war on women to divert attention from devastating economic policies that are hurting men and women,’ said Jennifer Stefano, a tea party leader from Bucks County, Pa., who is now state director of Americans for Prosperity.

“‘It’s sexist to cast women as victims who need big government to be their big daddy.’”

***

“In Iowa, one of the crucial battlegrounds in the coming presidential election, and in other states, dozens of interviews in recent weeks have found that moderate Republican and independent women — one of the most important electoral swing groups — are disenchanted by the Republican focus on social issues like contraception and abortion in an election that, until recently, had been mostly dominated by the economy…

“‘Everybody is so busy telling us how we should act in the bedroom, they’re letting the country fall through the cracks,’ said Fran Kelley, a retired public school worker in Seattle who voted for Senator John McCain over Mr. Obama in the 2008 election. Of the Republican candidates this year, she added, ‘They’re nothing but hatemongers trying to control everyone, saying, ‘Live as I live.’…

“Last week Joyce Kimball, a retired secretary in Greenville, Ill., who voted for Mr. McCain in 2008, said she had recently become ‘fed up,’ adding that it was not out of the question for her to vote for a Democrat in November. ‘I’m looking to hear how the candidates propose to put people back to work, not what they think about contraception,’ she said. ‘I hope to God they stop talking about this.’”

***

“Of course, Democrats started the conversation, but it was a good conversation to start if the goal was to get some Republicans to say some things that could be used against them. Fortunately, Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate who is going to be the nominee, had the sense not to say much. He was “tepid.” Good! We don’t want the government in our bedroom, so we don’t need a passionate President. Let him stay in his office and coolly and calmly do his job, which shouldn’t have anything to do with sex. He’s not our boyfriend.

Man, I loathe this pandering to women! Don’t treat us like we’re stupid. Don’t act like we need your special protection. Don’t buy us things.”

Katy, guess where I was this morning?

Bmore on March 12, 2012 at 1:01 AM

Dr. Tesla and his gay engineers.

Igor R. on March 12, 2012 at 12:59 AM

I was in no way referring to sodomy. Please god, no. Leave that subject alone.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:01 AM

In the UK, they drop f-bombs and the c-word all day long. Now, if you say “bloody” however…

John the Libertarian on March 12, 2012 at 12:59 AM

If you say “bloody Muslim” they’ll get you for hate speech.

Igor R. on March 12, 2012 at 1:01 AM

The founder of The People’s Cube originally came from the USSR and happily left it. He is a gem.

Somewhere in my files, I saved a speech of his where he describes the Orwellian language and “reasoning” of the communists he left behind. He could school the Leftists in our country over how they are tools so easily manipulated by shallow slogans and double-think.

onlineanalyst on March 12, 2012 at 12:53 AM

I did notice some Putin stuff over there. I’m sure the dude is having some fun with the Putin and the naked protestors in Russia right now.

JPeterman on March 12, 2012 at 1:01 AM

MooCow and MadCon kind of express themselves the same way, a lot of anger and a lot of curse words that seem kind of unnecessary to whatever point they are trying to make.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 12:41 AM

Tes, we’d much rather hear about your bj’s.Or lack of.

katy the mean old lady on March 12, 2012 at 12:45 AM

The shower?

John the Libertarian on March 12, 2012 at 1:02 AM

No kidding. BMore is Dire without the smileyface.

Lanceman on March 12, 2012 at 12:53 AM

I was thinking that but I didn’t type it! Although I suppose that’s because I’ve never been on the other side of an argument from them. I am sure they are very tough and intimidating and um –scary, bad men when they want to be!

cynccook on March 12, 2012 at 1:03 AM

I still can’t believe how some women hate me for having a certain view on that. What does it matter to you anyway.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:04 AM

The shower?

John the Libertarian on March 12, 2012 at 1:02 AM

There too. I don’t think Katy saw me ask her because of the page change.

Bmore on March 12, 2012 at 1:04 AM

I was in no way referring to sodomy. Please god, no. Leave that subject alone.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:01 AM

Yes, let’s leave the evil, plotting sodomites alone to destroy this wonderful world, yes, let’s just do that.

Igor R. on March 12, 2012 at 1:04 AM

–scary, bad men when they want to be!

cynccook on March 12, 2012 at 1:03 AM

Don’t go messing with the Dire. He’s got friends. Plus, he doesn’t need anyone’s help, I’ve seen him tear some fresh ones. But always with a smile.

Wasn’t Bmore the first to call him Jailbait?

Look guys, I’m been put on notice for the sodomy comments and my views on the other thing. Please don’t bait me into talking about it. I have a weakness.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:06 AM

I’m wondering if Dr. T is AnninCA’s brother. I’m getting that dumb cop/weird cop vibe again.

Lanceman on March 12, 2012 at 1:06 AM

Is the “cunning runts” joke forbidden?

Igor R. on March 12, 2012 at 1:06 AM

Help me help myself.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:07 AM

Wasn’t Bmore the first to call him Jailbait?

John the Libertarian on March 12, 2012 at 1:05 AM

Yes, but I have discontinued going after him. I am actually trying to get him to go after trolls. Its a work in progress. I think I missed Katy. It will be the second thread.

Bmore on March 12, 2012 at 1:08 AM

Look at me as a Rick Santorum, I’m the guy who is going to go where I probably shouldn’t but go I will. Distract me with beautiful women and wine.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:09 AM

katy the mean old lady on March 12, 2012 at 1:06 AM

Indeed I was HON. I tried to give you a heads up but missed you.

Dire Straits on March 12, 2012 at 1:11 AM

I would tell anybody with good knees not to participate in a marathon or run at all. My knees were shot at age 26.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:11 AM

Rick Santorum doesn’t get distracted with women and wine. He is focused, totally on message and going the distance.

Igor R. on March 12, 2012 at 1:12 AM

He’d argue with a dead mule, but he’s fun and doesnt clutter up threads with his sexual fantasies.

katy the mean old lady on March 12, 2012 at 12:37 AM

John the Libertarian on March 12, 2012 at 1:05 AM

LOL I adore Dire. He’s just so incredibly sweet, but I’m just saying, he’s also a strong, conservative type guy, so I know there’s another side to him!

cynccook on March 12, 2012 at 1:13 AM

God bless ya.

JPeterman on March 12, 2012 at 1:11 AM

At mile 14-16, it’s straight up Haight street. I bonked about mile 18, then it became a hallucination. Naturally all the drag queens are manning the water stations after mile 20 just so you know you’re in Oz.

Here’s a more complicated one from the same series. What’s the difference between a rooster and a lawyer? The rooster clucks defiant.

Katy, how old are you? I myself am in advanced middle age at age 34.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:17 AM

Faraway posted on this thread I believe. Not banned.

sharrukin on March 12, 2012 at 12:54 AM

I was going to say. All I saw of faraway on that thread was how he kept insisting that Reuters said there was more than one soldier involved. He was driving me nuts with that Reuters crap but I didn’t see anything offensive.

Bitter Clinger on March 12, 2012 at 1:17 AM

Dire Straits on March 12, 2012 at 1:13 AM

You can always tell a newb on this site when they go after your smiley-faces or canopfor’s formatting. I don’t know what gets into folks sometimes.

You didn’t seem to smitten with me the other night when you found out I knew some of those, well, girls.

Bmore on March 12, 2012 at 1:18 AM

Katy, if you want to go out sometime, I’m desperate. Let me know.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:18 AM

Good for you!

katy the mean old lady on March 12, 2012 at 1:16 AM

Bmore on March 12, 2012 at 1:19 AM

Katy, it seems like the 1920′s were just yesterday.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:19 AM

Katy, how old are you? I myself am in advanced middle age at age 34.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:17 AM

I dated Robert E. Lee

katy the mean old lady on March 12, 2012 at 1:20 AM

Katy, we thought we had it made back in the Roaring 20′s, little did we know we’d be living in a tent for FDR’s 4 terms. That’s life for you.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:21 AM

katy the mean old lady on March 12, 2012 at 1:20 AM

Were you there the last few days?

You didn’t seem to smitten with me the other night when you found out I knew some of those, well, girls.

Bmore on March 12, 2012 at 1:18 AM

Nah…I figured that if you really did know any, that they were just some poor ladies who had fallen upon hard times and that you were attempting in some way to rehabilitate them with your unfailing kindness and compassion. It was the other guy who was looking for some kind of hook up who left me taken aback!

cynccook on March 12, 2012 at 1:23 AM

John the Libertarian on March 12, 2012 at 1:26 AM

I would tell anybody with good knees not to participate in a marathon or run at all. My knees were shot at age 26.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:11 AM

What??? I’ve hurt my knee skiing, but never running. What the heck did you do?

cynccook on March 12, 2012 at 1:28 AM

Did I mention I was running on one leg, backwards and blindfolded?

John the Libertarian on March 12, 2012 at 1:26 AM

Backwards? Not a smart move in San Francisco.

JPeterman on March 12, 2012 at 1:28 AM

Katy,

You in the moonlight
With your sleepy eyes
Could you ever love a man like me
And you were right

When I walked into your house
I knew I’d never want to leave
Sometimes I’m a strong man
Sometimes cold and scared
And sometimes I cryBut that time I saw you
I knew with you to light my nights
Somehow I’d get by
First time I saw you
I knew with you to light my nights
Somehow I would get byLovers forever… face to face
My city or mountainsStay with me stay
I need you to love meI need you today
Give to me your leather…

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:29 AM

cynccook on March 12, 2012 at 1:23 AM

Ole RedCrow, he seems alright. I have had a very full life. You would freak to know of all the odd friends I’ve made over the years. And I do mean odd. All good folk in their own ways.

Bmore on March 12, 2012 at 1:29 AM

It’s called being a track star in high school. Yeah, that’s right, I was a jock in high school. Bet you want my phone number now.

Wow, that’s a pretty good time. I haven’t done a 10 for almost 4 years, but I usually get in 15 miles a week.

Tesla have you lost it? Stop with the creep show.

John the Libertarian on March 12, 2012 at 1:31 AM

Running is the Devil to your knees. I’d stick to ping pong.

Dire Straits on March 12, 2012 at 1:32 AM

That Leather and Lace duet cracks me up, duets in general crack me up b/c they are goofy.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:32 AM

Yeah, sure I do. No, I meant, did you hurt yourself or something?

cynccook on March 12, 2012 at 1:32 AM

I have some type of arthrtis, chondramalicia or something in the cartilige in my knees. They also had to remove a tissue called plica that was getting caught up in the knee joint and causing a lot of pain.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:34 AM

Tesla have you lost it? Stop with the creep show.

John the Libertarian on March 12, 2012 at 1:31 AM

Did he ever have it? I’m thinking institutionalization may be an idea.

I’m 34 years old, I have had cancer, arthritis in both knees, I have had epilepsy since I was 13, I recently fracture the ball of my arm bone and dislocated my shoulder, I’ve been laid off twice, and women hate me b/c I have a certain core conviction.

Does God hate me or what?

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:36 AM

Were you there the last few days?

Bmore on March 12, 2012 at 1:21 AM

No, might get up there the end of May.

katy the mean old lady on March 12, 2012 at 1:36 AM

Wow, that’s a pretty good time. I haven’t done a 10 for almost 4 years, but I usually get in 15 miles a week.

cynccook on March 12, 2012 at 1:30 AM

Not my best and I smoke and need to quit.

Anyone know if the patch works?

JPeterman on March 12, 2012 at 1:36 AM

I have some type of arthrtis, chondramalicia or something in the cartilige in my knees. They also had to remove a tissue called plica that was getting caught up in the knee joint and causing a lot of pain.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:34 AM

My b-in-l just had knee replacement surgery last week on one of his knees. It is unbelievably gruesome. He’s taking oxycodone every 3 to 4 hours or something.

Well played. Everyone should give this a listen.

Like I tell people, I’m half Swedish, half German and half English, but my liver is all Irish.

No. There is no God.

cynccook, I’ve been meaning to take care of a piece of unfinished business with you. The night you were at the Hospital with Sherry. I had posted you a song that was of a friend of mine when we were both much younger. I think when I said, when we were much younger, you thought I was speaking of you and I. You were commenting from an iPhone if memory serves. The way you responded made me realize you thought I was addressing you by your first name, which I wasn’t because I didn’t know your first name at that point. At any rate I was going to repost it to you so that the context would of the song and my comment would make more sense. Do you remember? I can repost the song if you can’t remember. Trust me if you don’t remember it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest. You were under a lot of stress that evening.

Oh, and my cholesterol is sky high despite being a former track star and I have stones in my gall bladder and they may have to remove it.

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Let’s just say he ain’t been doin’ a lot of braggin’ on you…

Lanceman on March 12, 2012 at 1:39 AM

My knees are ok for walking but I can’t run on them, unless somebody pointed a gun at me and I wasn’t thinking about it.

Dr. Tesla on March 12, 2012 at 1:39 AM

JPeterman on March 12, 2012 at 1:36 AM

My brother did the gum for a while, but now gets these lozenges that he prefers.

Yeah. But, it must be carefully placed over your mouth…

God defintely prefers Tebow to me. I’m a little jealous.

JPeterman on March 12, 2012 at 1:36 AM

How can you log 30 miles a week and smoke? You’re teasing me, right?

cynccook on March 12, 2012 at 1:41 AM

JPeterman on March 12, 2012 at 1:36 AM

Not for me. Smoked with the damn things. My best shot was 8 months cold turkey. Gave up anything that would make me light up. Coffee, booze, etc. Mean as a snake. and would lick an ashtray.

No. I spoke to her via FB after that. She is of the opinion women should not be allowed to vote. Which is weird considering she leans feminist. But Ladyingray and LovingmyUSA and I think Txmomof3 clobbered the crap outta her. She said after that, she wasn’t gonna put up with it anymore. I told her to come back, but, no dice.

Lanceman on March 12, 2012 at 1:41 AM

It is truly amazing to me that the republic is going to collapse because at a time when our country is sinking in debt we as a nation, due to a president who only cares about politics, were talking about whether or not the government should force the Catholic church to pay for people’s contraception.

cpaulus on March 12, 2012 at 1:42 AM

Not sure how anybody is ever enticed to smoke. Inhaling smoke seems like a bad idea if you value breathing.
