112,292. Well, I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment. And — I’ve learned quickly these past few days that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone. But — now here’s a little news flash. Here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion. I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country. (Palin & Washington) Sarah Palin
112,293. That’s why I say, I, like every American I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the tax payers looking to bail out, but ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy, helping tho— uh, oh, it's got to be all about job creation too, shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So healthcare reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans. And trade, we’ve got to see trade as opportunity, not as — competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today, we’ve got to look at that as more opportunity. All those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that. Sarah Palin, interview Katie Couric 2008
112,294. Let me go back quickly to a comfortable analogy for me and that’s sports. Basketball! And I use it because you are naïve if you don’t see a full court press from the national level picking away right now. A … good point guard here’s what she does: she drives through a full court press pro … tecting the ball, keeping her head … up because she needs to keep her eye on the basket and she knows exactly when to pass the ball so that the team can win and that is what I’m doing - keeping our eye on the ball that represents sound priorities remember they include energy independence and smaller government and national security and freedom and I know when it's time to pass the ball … for victory. (Palin & Basketball) Sarah Palin, on her resignation 3rd July 2009
75,589. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society’ whether they are worthy of health care. (Palin & Health Service) Sarah Palin
112,295. But I didn’t believe in the theory that human beings – thinking, loving beings – originated from fish that sprouted legs and crawled out of the sea. Or that human beings began as single-celled organisms that developed into monkeys who eventually swung down from trees; I believed we came about through a random process, but were created by God. (Palin & Evolution) Sarah Palin, cited Going Rogue: An American Life 2009
123,644. I propose to eliminate all federal corporate income tax. (Corporation & Tax & Palin) Sarah Palin, cited We’re Not Broke: The Corporate Tax Cheats of America
112,296. I’ve found just the right partner to help me shake up Washington – Governor Sarah Palin of the great state of Alaska … She has an executive experience and a real record of accomplishment. She’s tackled tough problems, like energy independence and corruption. She’s balanced a budget, cut taxes, and she's taken on the special interests. She’s reached across the aisle and asked Republicans, Democrats, and independents to serve in her administration. She’s the wonderful mother of five children. She’s … she’s helped run a small business. She’s worked with her hands and knows, and knows what it’s like to worry about mortgage payments, and health care, and the cost of gasoline and groceries. She knows where she comes from, and she knows who she works for. She stands up for what’s right, and she doesn’t let anyone tell her to sit down. John McCain, 2008 Republican Convention
112,297. In television interviews she was out of her depth in a shallow pool. She was limited in her ability to explain and defend her positions, and sometimes in knowing them. She couldn’t say what she read because she didn’t read anything. She was utterly unconcerned by all this and seemed in fact rather proud of it: It was evidence of her authenticity … In another age it might not have been terrible, but here and now it was actually rather horrifying. Peggy Noonan
29,190. What is so unnerving about the candidacy of Sarah Palin is the degree to which she represents – and her supporters celebrate – the joyful marriage of confidence and ignorance. Ask yourself: how has ‘elitism’ become a bad word in American politics? There is simply no other walk of life in which extraordinary talent and rigorous training are denigrated. We want elite pilots to fly our planes, elite troops to undertake our most critical missions, elite athletes to represent us in competition and elite scientists to devote the most productive years of their lives to curing our diseases. And yet, when it comes time to vest people with even greater responsibilities, we consider it a virtue to shun any and all standards of excellence. When it comes to choosing the people whose thoughts and actions will decide the fates of millions, then we suddenly want someone just like us, someone fit to have a beer with, someone down-to-earth – in fact, almost anyone, provided that he or she doesn’t seem too intelligent or well educated.
