    Quote of the Day – Governor Sarah Palin Edition 

    “Bless his heart, I don’t want to pile on Todd Akin, because in some respects, I understand what he’s trying to say here in standing on principle, that he doesn’t want to be perceived as a quitter.

    But you got to know when to hold ’em and know when to fold ’em.

    Sarah Palin on Congressman Akin staying in senate race.

    The question I would like the congressman to answer is what type of principle is standing on when he could be the reason that Obamacare doesn’t get repealed?  If he truly believes in religious liberty and life, getting rid of Obamacare should be job #1.

    Quote of the Day – Rush Limbaugh Edition Part 6 

    And we all know that that campaign would have had zilch, zero, nada energy and wouldn’t have had anywhere near the chance it had were it not for Palin.  No question about it.  The mistake on that ticket was not Palin.  Pure and simple.  Sarah Palin was not the mistake on that ticket.

    Rush Limbaugh talking about Vice President Cheney’s assessment that Gov. Palin was a mistake for the VP nod in 2008

      In `08, I voted for Sarah; John came with the ticket. John McLame was the mistake !

      In all the blogs I`ve read and their comments, anecdotally speaking of course, the vast majority have stated they did not want McCain, or at least they wanted him to get tough on Obama. We felt the establishment Republican Party crammed him down our throats and cost us the election, though I will say this; had Obama NOT won, the nation would still be asleep and we would still be on this trajectory over the cliff, maybe just not as far along ! Yes, I`m saying Obama`s win was a kind of blessing for us, a wake up call, a slap in the face from the cold, wet dishrag of reality !

    • Ednar 8:54 PM on 08/02/2012 Permalink | Reply

      I didnt want John McCain. The Democrats handed John McCain to us whether we wanted him or not!
      They voted out of their political bases to boost him up during the primaries! I recall, then, Huckabee & McCain ganged up on Romney.
      But b/c he was the sole republican to run against Obama … had NO choice but to back him up!
      Obama deliberately BLOCKED all negative comments on all his videos, including mine.
      McCain? Had the decency to allow all vitriol from the left! Tried to sustain & hold off as much of the vehement attacks as possible & was partially successful.

    Quote of the Day – Laura Goldman Edition 

    When I had to chance to interact with former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin at SkyBridge Capital’s SALT conference, I was  surprised to discover that she is intelligent, nice, knows the name of the newspapers that she reads, and has an elaborate tattoo on her ankle.When I asked if I could take a picture of Palin, she asked if I wanted to take a picture with her although she knew I was part of the “lamestream” media.

    After meeting her at the SALT conference, I ran into at the airport. Since airport security was escorting her, she did not have to say hello again and start talking to me again, but she did. Although security wanted to carry her suitcase for her, she insisted on rolling it on her own. She offered to take another picture at the airport with me. She was not a primadonna in any way. When I was walking to my seat in coach, I saw her talking to her seat mate.

    She is even more beautiful in person. There is never a hair out of place. She is always perfectly dressed for the occasion. She was dressed in all black -leather jacket, shirt, skirt- but tan 6 inch sandals that showed off her tattoo. At the airport, she looked smoking hot in a short dress and Bristol’s cowboy boots.

    While I do not agree with her positions, it is pretty clear that she has been unfairly maligned by the press. I have to wonder if some of the reaction is because she is a pretty woman.

    Quote of the Day – Jonah Goldberg Edition Part 2 

    The hypocrisy of Game Change is that it’s about how terrible it is to compromise values & truth, but that’s exactly what the makers did.

    Jonah Goldberg today on Twitter.

    I did not watch this movie as I don’t have HBO (a decision largely guided by their support of Bill Maher), but I was on twitter while it was playing.  The tweets were hysterical.  The most important thing to keep in mind about this movie is, Game Change only contained about 20 pages on Gov. Palin.  How they made a two-hour movie from 20 pages is beyond me.  One of the biggest consensus was that Ed Harris (who I normally like) did a horrible job as John McCain.

    Towards the end of the movie it was reported that Sen. McCain told Palin not to allow herself to be corrupted by the far right and Rush Limbaugh.  I wouldn’t be surprised if that was an exact quote.

    Shame on Tom Hanks for his obvious display of hatred of conservatives.  Well one more actor I can scratch off my list when I decide how to spend my entertainment dollars.

    I Knew There Was a Reason I Like Ann Coulter 

    This of course is causing many calls of “Diva”, “Establishment”, and “Elitist”. 

    There are people out there who like Sarah Palin, who believe in what she is saying, who thinks that she is good at getting a crowd going, and has a canny ability to raise money, but don’t feel that she should run for president.  That in and of itself does not make you a bad person, a bad conservative, or any other thing that you will be called by the Palinista’s.  It just means that you are expressing your opinion.  Something that as an American you are allowed to express.  At least the last time I checked. 

    Some of Palin’s “fans” are rabid fanatics.  They search every website for one little bad word about the Governor and all of sudden you end up with comment after comment questioning your sanity.  People will defriend you on Facebook if you dare say one word against Palin.  How exactly is that different from what happened with Obama a few years ago?  It is the same blind loyalty.  Sarah Palin is not perfect, she makes mistakes, just like every other human being.  She has no magic wand to cure all the ills.  It scared me when this  was the belief for Obama and it scares me now.  It isn’t healthy for our type of government. 

    I agree with Ann, it isn’t whether Sarah Palin is all those things that the left accused her of, it is about whether the squishy middle who decide national elections believe it.  It has been three years and there are still people who think Tina Fey’s comments were actually made by Sarah Palin.  If she hasn’t been able to dismiss these misconceptions by now, I don’t hold the belief that she can.  It also isn’t a question of fairness.  Life isn’t fair.  The left set out to destroy her to the squishy middle and I think they did a bang up job of it.  These people are not going to watch the documentary about her, they have already made up their minds.  I live in a left leaning area of the country, they don’t care what her record is.  They don’t like her.  They won’t vote her.  Yeah, they will vote for Obama over her.  Her true record has no meaning to them.  Her not making a decision about running I think has hurt her, not helped her.  It just allows this type of talk to continue. 

    There is nothing in this interview that should warrant Coulter and Graham being called the names that they are being called.  They spoke their minds in an analytical fashion.  That is what they are paid to do. 

    I am with Ann, it is time to “fish or cut bait” Governor.  The game is becoming tiresome.  Make your decision known.  We can then start the process of widdling down to the candidate that is the most likely to beat Obama.  After all that is the goal, isn’t it? 

    • BackyardConservative 7:17 PM on 09/08/2011 Permalink | Reply

      I thought they were pretty empty on this one. They didn’t go after her on the merits of her positions, they just said she’s too late to get in and won’t win. Then they push non-conservatives to get in.

      As far as Ann Coulter, I’ve met her, I like her. She’s pretty brave a lot of the time. She is also deliberately provocative from time to time. I think this is one of those times. And I also think she’s got some envy issues.

      As for Laura I’m disappointed in her too. Romney? Really?

      Finally, Sarah Palin jumped in the race when McCain asked her too. She’s been carrying the ball for the GOP up to and including the midterm. She’s earned the right to take her time.

      I live in a blue state. I have patience for pols who have to live in them. I have no patience for pundits who claim to be conservative but bash like establishment

      • just a conservative girl 8:25 AM on 09/09/2011 Permalink | Reply

        Oh yeah, the fall back position. Anytime anyone says something the least bit negative about the governor you get called establishment or jealous. That has long since grown old. Can we come up with something new to call these people?

    • BackyardConservative 2:27 PM on 09/09/2011 Permalink | Reply

      Laura and Ann have drawn attention because they are not critiquing Palin on substance. What conclusion should we draw then? They are spinning, they are defending establishment political figures. Yes, I agree, jealousy has grown old. But that’s what we saw in that clip. Pretty much pure snark. She shouldn’t be given time to decide but others should.

      As far as the mushy middle, I would remind you, since I’m 57 and you’re not, that a lot of the TEA party comes from there, involving people who’ve never been involved before. And in my blue state of IL this 2010 election independents went hugely R, electing numerous new congressional members. All I’m saying is don’t underestimate the smarts of the American people and their misery under this president. Why wouldn’t they give Palin a fresh look should she decide to run, and wins the R nomination. Given the alternative.

      • just a conservative girl 3:32 PM on 09/09/2011 Permalink | Reply

        They were not talking about Palin in this clip for the most part. What little they did say about Palin herself was mainly positive. The negatives were about the people who think she walks on water. The Palinista’s are just as rabid as the Paul fans. I have heard that Perry’s fans are similiar. I have not experienced that personally with them, but I have with Palin fans.
        You may not agree, but many in the conservative side feel that the body blows delivered to her by the left and the media are not something she can overcome. Virtually everyone I know that leans to the left thinks she is an idiot. They bought the entire meme hook, line and sinker. Under no circumstances will they vote for her.

        And they did make a substantive comment about how Palin has not released real specifics on how to get the ecomony going again. I have read Romeny’s plan. There are some good things in there. Most conservatives would be happy with much of the plan. That doesn’t mean I would vote for him, but at least he giving out some ideas.

        This is exactly what Coulter was talking about, unless you bow to the alter of Palin you get attacked.

        I don’t underestimate the American people. Nor do I overestimate Sarah Palin. I don’t believe she can win. I can’t support her if that means another four years of Obama.

        • BackyardConservative 7:21 PM on 09/09/2011 Permalink | Reply

          If and when she runs she’ll lay out a specific plan. Certainly more specific than the president’s.

          I happen to think winning with a conservative is more important than winning the presidency. We have had big spending Republicans before and we can’t afford that any more. But the voters will decide. I do think it will be hard to energize our base and up the numbers in the House and the Senate unless we have a strong, principled candidate.

    It’s Getting Interesting Now – Rick Perry for President 

    Rick Perry will be putting his hat into the ring and run for the GOP nomination confirmed today by a spokesman for the Governor.  Perry who is not on the ballot for the Ames Straw Poll on Saturday, but already has legions of fans working to get people to write his name in.  This was being done before the announcement today. So it will be interesting to see how he places this weekend. 

    Perry’s announcement is bad news for Michele Bachmann.  Perry has a good relationship with social conservatives.  He is also very strong on 2nd and 10th amendment issues.  The Tea Party will be feeling some hominess with the Governor on his constitutional stances.  He and Bachmann will be going after the very same pool of voters.  Perry should win that race as he has tons of executive experience to Bachmann’s very thin experience.  I believe this year, experience will be of up most importance.   The last two plus years has shown electing someone without experience leads to nothing but bad things. 

    Another loser in this announcement is Sarah Palin.  While she has still not announced what her decision to run is, since her and Perry are buddies, this could throw a monkey wrench into her plans for a run.  Again, Perry will beat Palin in the experience department.  It will be interesting to see if Palin will join the race now.  She is getting in very late (although name recognition and fundraising are non-issues for her), she has repeatedly said she wouldn’t join the race if there were other true conservatives (Cain, Perry, Bachmann and Santorum are true conservatives) in the race, and she has a professional relationship with Perry that was very friendly. 

    The biggest loser in this would seem to be Mitt Romney.  Perry can pull in the big cash donors.  The rumors circulating earlier this week was that Perry was making sure he had commitments on donations before he would throw his hat into the ring officially.  Since he is announcing two days earlier than originally thought, someone must have opened their wallets.  Perry will be able to compete financially against Mitt, he has more executive experience in the government sector than Mitt, and most importantly, Governor Perry didn’t sign Romneycare into law.  Another rumor floating around is that this was Mitt’s biggest fear. 

    I am not very familiar with Perry’s record, I do know that Paulites consider Perry to be part of the new world order and Romney is afraid of his candidacy.  Then my reaction has to be Welcome Aboard Gov. Perry.  Glad you decided to play in GOP presidential politics.  If the Paulites and Romney don’t like you, you may be someone to take a look at.

    Former Hoops Star Palin Fights for Highland Park HS Girls 

    Sarah Palin took suburban Chicago Rosemont by storm in her speech last night and directly challenged the suburban Chicago Highland Park High School decision to ban their championship girls basketball team from playing at a tournament in Arizona. Palin: “Keeping the girl’s basketball team off the court for political reasons? Those are fighting words,”. Sun Times front page Palin: “Them’s fightin words”. The Tribune story calls Palin a conservative “firebrand”. Hmm, who’s afraid of strong women?

      It’s interesting. Most everyone is on the side of the girls. So many on the left are so tone deaf–they never think things through. Title 9 girls vs. a remote possibility of “safety” concerns–it’s more dangerous on the south side of chicago.

    Palin at the other Washington 

    Washington, Illinois. CBS2Chicago. Washington (DC) Times, “Palin taken aback by Obama remark”, with more:

    Mrs. Palin’s remarks came in a question-and-answer session after a speech at an event in the central Illinois town of Washington to raise money for scholarships and a community center. She spoke to a crowd of about 1,100.

    Oh, and she had a good quip at the end.

    More here.

    P.S. I left the picture in. I like it that she is not afraid to wear a cross in public.

      The bending straw Diva narrative is really laughable considering who is running the country. If Obama got 1/4 of the critical scrutiny Palin gets perhaps he wouldn’t have gotten the nomination let alone the presidency.

    Apt metaphor 

    Palin likens Obama’s new (and publicized–how incredibly stupid to telegraph it, no?) nuclear strategy to a kid who asks to be punched in the face.

    So true.

    “It’s unbelievable. Unbelievable,” said Palin on Wednesday evening while appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program. “No administration in America’s history would, I think, ever have considered such a step that we just found out President Obama is supporting today. It’s kinda like getting out there on a playground, a bunch of kids, getting ready to fight, and one of the kids saying, ‘Go ahead, punch me in the face and I’m not going to retaliate. Go ahead and do what you want to with me.’

    “No, it’s unacceptable,” she continued. “This is another thing that the American public, the more that they find out, what is a part of this agenda, they are going to rise up and they are going to say ‘no more.’ National security, national defense is the No. 1 job of the federal government.”

    Tuesday reads: Kick through and Slaughter 

    Quoth Madame Speaker, “. . . once we kick through this door, there’ll be more legislation to follow.” But kicking through doors doesn’t go over well with voters.

    “Whose door is the Speaker kicking in?” asks Brad Dayspring, a spokesman for Republican Whip Rep. Eric Cantor. “People tend to prefer a polite knock, and after a year of having their doors bashed and kicked in by Speaker Pelosi, President Obama, and Harry Reid, we’ll see how the American people respond this November. Right now, they are trying to reinforce those doors with steel.”

    “The American people aren’t stupid,” says Kevin Smith, a spokesman for House GOP Leader Rep. John Boehner. “We know this is just the beginning for Speaker Pelosi and her comrades. Their government takeover of health care is the first step toward a single-payer system, and that’s another reason we are doing everything within our power to stop this bill and start over with real reforms that actually lower health care costs.”

    “She’s got a long way to go before she kicks down the door,” says Matt Lloyd, a spokesman for House Republican Conference Chairman Rep. Mike Pence, “and if she wants to keep going against the will of the American people, I guess that’s her prerogative, but I think folks are going to have long memories.”

    WSJ: Slaughterhouse Rules

    So at the Speaker’s command, New York Democrat Louise Slaughter, who chairs the House Rules Committee, may insert what’s known as a “self-executing rule,” also known as a “hereby rule.” Under this amazing procedural ruse, the House would then vote only once on the reconciliation corrections, but not on the underlying Senate bill. If those reconciliation corrections pass, the self-executing rule would say that the Senate bill is presumptively approved by the House—even without a formal up-or-down vote on the actual words of the Senate bill.

    Democrats would thus send the Senate bill to President Obama for his signature even as they claimed to oppose the same Senate bill. They would be declaring themselves to be for and against the Senate bill in the same vote. Even John Kerry never went that far with his Iraq war machinations.

    Even David Brooks knows that reconciliation is a bad idea.

    Pelosi is  “working the hard nos.” Not a good sign for Dems, but don’t get excited.  No one knows the real count.

    This WaPo headline is unusually blunt: House may try to pass Senate health-care bill without voting on it

    Sarah P. on Alan G.:

    Alan Grayson. What can you say about Alan Grayson?” Palin, the former GOP vice presidential nominee, asked the audience. “Piper is with me tonight, so I won’t say anything about Alan Grayson that can’t be said around children.”

    That doesn’t leave much.

    No surprise department: Journalists demonstrate their profound ignorance of American history, fail to identify most famous war photo of all time. (h/t: Instapundit)
