Peggy Noonan Disses Sarah Palin
Too Little, Too Late
The only time we've seen the genuine Peggy Noonan was when she was caught off mike saying Sarah Palin's VP selection was "pure political bullshit."
The next day she back pedaled in her column, saying how much she liked Sarah Palin.
Now that Palin has turned herself into political toast, out comes Peggy Fucking Noonan with a truthier statement:
"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.
She experienced criticism as both partisan and cruel because she could see no truth in any of it.
She wasn't thoughtful enough to know she wasn't thoughtful enough.
Her presentation up to the end has been scattered, illogical, manipulative and self-referential to the point of self-reverence.
"I'm not wired that way,"
"I'm not a quitter,"
"I'm standing up for our values."
In another age it might not have been terrible, but here and now it was actually rather horrifying..."
While I dislike most conservative pundits, I'd really like to punch Peggy Noonan in the neck.
From her phony, pinched aristocratic accent to her condescending tone, she's a media whore who'd fuck a snake to get ahead.
She peaked back in the 80's when she gave George Herbert Walker Bush that "thousand points of light" bullshit.
