My favourite GOOD Palinisms/quotes

My favourite parts are in bold.

1: [the one re her Down's Syndrome son Trig]
"As for our baby boy, Trig, for Todd and me he is only more precious because he is vulnerable. In some ways, I think we stand to learn more from him than he does from us. When we hold Trig and care for him, we don't feel scared anymore. We feel blessed."

2: "Given such statements, is it any wonder that many of the sick and elderly are concerned that the Democrats' proposals will ultimately lead to rationing of their health care by—dare I say it—death panels?" - rhetorically brilliant because based in truth. - definitely a Palinism. Is already being written into history books. Written here on 2009-09-08 in her Wall Street Journal piece.

3: Never have so few defended the liberty of so many. - compares well with Churchill's original: "... never has so much been owed by so many to so few". Written in her facebook note on 9/11, 2009

4: Re 'Cap and trade' bill, the supply-side economics phunny
"The ironic beauty in this plan? Soon, even the most ardent liberal will understand supply-side economics." - Great wit. :) My fave liberal review of this "i doubt leather-skirted Sarah wrote this." - obviously they thought it was a good article. Sarah's piece is located here. I chose the Guardian site coz of the picture of the caribou.

5: "We eat therefore we hunt" - Governor's picnic farewell speech.

6: re tort reform
Full quote. my fave bits are in bold.

"As Governor of Alaska, I learned a little bit about being a target for frivolous suits and complaints (Please, do I really need to footnote that?). I went my whole life without needing a lawyer on speed-dial, but all that changes when you become a target for opportunists and people with no scruples. Our nation’s health care providers have been the targets of similar opportunists for years, and they too have found themselves subjected to false, frivolous, and baseless claims. To quote a former president, "I feel your pain."" Sarah's fb article is here.

7: [re being pregnant at age 44 with a Down's Syndrome child] “Plus I was old. And i thought Yeah - very funny god. My name is Sarah but my husband is not Abraham. He’s Todd. Yeah. And just like Sarah of old, I too, I laughed.” [in a speech at Vanderburgh County’s Right to Life banquet in Evansville, Indiana, April 16th, 2009] Transcribed from a You Tube vid located here. Please watch.

8: thumped up charges – i initially thought that this must be Sarah's one and only twitter typo but after listening to a radio interview where she mentioned a book called “The Thumpin’*” [about how to exploit ethics laws to bring down a politician], I realised this was an incidence of Sarah being far too clever for her own good. ;)

* = From the way she said it, I'm assuming the book title has no 'g' at the end. ;)

· More suggestions welcome. lets get it up to 10. :)
