Skip to comments.Peggy Noonan's urgent agenda item
Posted on 07/26/2010 8:43:07 PM PDT by Maelstorm
Even those of us who warned against the "canonization" of Shirley Sherrod didn't expect that right-of-center commentators would propose that her radical manifesto become part of the canon. Yet that's what Peggy Noonan is calling for:
" This September, when school begins, we should make [Sherrod's] speech required viewing in the nation's high schools."
Gee, can't this wait until February, when Black History Month rolls around?
JOHN suggests: Or May Day perhaps, when socialist views are traditionally celebrated?

Divorce, move to NYC, and slide downhill for 20 years...the story of Peggy’s life.
hey Peg...he's just not into you. Ok?
Somehow I doubt this includes all of the Sherrods’ speeches and interviews.
She complains in her tripe that the Sherrod speech was cut down to a 2 minute excerpt....well...golly gee whiz...that’s NEVER happened before! And, oh, she forgets to mention some other things.....
I’m never going to mention the her name again in the same sentence..paragraph..language - as her former boss, who shall remain nameless for this purpose only.
Sherrod’s speech to the NAACP is a mixed bag of racism that will confuse young adults.
Noonan is classic idiot.
>> Noonan is classic idiot.
Noonan is a classic idiot.
It’s damn near impossible to live without the free booze and finger snacks of the DC party circuit, as Noonan so richly demonstrates.
The sad thing it wasn’t just her. I did think the one part of her speech was taken out of context but what she described was far from a rejection of racism. She also went further to describe Tea Partys and those who disagree with the President and Nationalized Health care as mean-spirited racists. If it were only Peggy Noonan who reacted this way.
When will conservatives and Republicans stop jumping on the self flagellation bandwagon? Sherrod and her Husband both are very much racist individuals. They see nearly everything through the perspective of race and class.
Noonan I believe is a little slow on the uptake. Sometimes I think she is wonderful and the next thing I read from her makes me want to throwup.
what an idiot she has become
another white person who can’t pander to black socialist bigots quick enough...and loud enough
She hasn't been wonderful since Palins Convention Speech. Maybe she's been dating a Journolist.
Not necessarily related to this, but there is something very wrong with this woman. Has anyone ever seen her speak on C-SPAN, etc? If so, you’ll know exactly what I mean.
No surprise considering how she “taught” her class at Harvard:
She’s never forgiven Bush 43 (and by extension the Republicans) for not inviting her into his speechwriting den in 2000.
Her writing anymore is of a bitter stepsister, overlooked and pining for relevance. It’s the very definition of the word ‘torpid’.
She’s lost whatever credibility she once had on the right and is now best known as a Chris-Matthews O-sycophant of the first order.
I frankly wish she’d just hike up her dress, ring the doorbell at the White House and get it over with, like Maureen Dowd did.
Yeah, when is that old gas bag going to float away on the wind?
She never ceases to amaze me.
I did not think I could become more disgusted with her; yet I am. She needs to retire NOW.
I doubt that Obama and his henchmen want Sherrod to become this century’s Rosa Parks. It was his administration who fired her. No matter how much the libs try to rewrite this story, the fact remains that she was fired, by them.
Besides, “faux conservatives” are invited to all the best Manhattan and Beltway elite cocktail parties.
And her voice and manner grate on me. She’s a mousey mouse.
I was pretty much betting she’d have been on the Journolist.
Noonan’s no conservative, nor is she “right of center.”
She’s a wannabe-lib turned nasty because Pres. Bush didn’t hire her as a speechwriter.
She reminds me of the woman George Costanza (”Seinfeld” character) dated that wore chopsticks in her hair, and spoke of “Papier mache,” and pronounced it as if she was showing off what she learned at Miss Porter’s School... PRETENTIOUS and full of her self, and harmful to the USA. She is aiding and abetting Obama and his ilk, who are trying (and doing a pretty good job) of tearing down the traditions and foundations of this great nation.
Ahhhh, miss papier mache....
Sorry to say that Peggy Noonan has become just another Ruling Class wannabee.
