Rod Dreher, Dallas Morning News, Sept. 7, 2008:
She’s a fighter, this one. And worth fighting for. Come what may in November, we now know what the future of the GOP and the conservative movement looks like.
Mary Mitchell, Chicago Sun-Times, Sept. 4, 2008:
Sarah Palin may come from the backwoods of Alaska, but she has the heart of a street fighter.
Jim Wooten, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Sept. 3, 2008:
Republicans want a fighter. I do believe they have one in Gov. Sarah Palin.
David Brody, CBN, today:
Oh and by the way, the last time I checked, her nickname is “Sarah Barracuda.” Palin is a fighter.
Palin spokesperson Meghan Stapleton, quoted by the AP, today:
Palin remaining as governor is not good for Alaska, given the “political bloodsport” by her critics, Stapleton said. Stepping down is a “fighter’s move,” Stapleton said, essentially Palin stepping around political barriers in her way and pursuing her vision.
