Palin Quotes of the Day

First, from Sarah herself from Tuesday's speech in Greenville, NC:

“Here in North Carolina, you can help put us in D.C. to help put the
government back on your side,” she said. “We are joining you to look
for the future, because that's where you find the solutions.”

Damn!  There go my plans to look for the past, and hope to find solutions there. 

Given that:

Palin spoke for about half an hour, reading mostly from a teleprompter
[emphasis mine] and delivering lines meant to charm along with attacks on Obama.

How does such a dumb line make it into her speech? 

And from David Brooks, on the subject of Sarah Palin:

[Sarah Palin] represents a fatal cancer to the Republican party. When I first started in journalism, I worked at the National Review
for Bill Buckley. And Buckley famously said he'd rather be ruled by the
first 2,000 names in the Boston phone book than by the Harvard faculty.
But he didn't think those were the only two options. He thought it was
important to have people on the conservative side who celebrated ideas,
who celebrated learning. And his whole life was based on that, and that
was also true for a lot of the other conservatives in the Reagan era.
Reagan had an immense faith in the power of ideas. But there has been a
counter, more populist tradition, which is not only to scorn liberal
ideas but to scorn ideas entirely. And I'm afraid that Sarah Palin has
those prejudices. I think President Bush has those prejudices.
