TCRLAF | 9-3- | TCRLAF

Posted on 09/03/2008 1:54:39 PM PDT by tcrlaf

Earlier she says "It's OVER!" "You Republicans ALWAYS do that!!"

I'd like to thank the moonbats at DAILY KOS for the tip-off on this example of an "UNBIASED" media presentation!!

This is merely a Jesse Jackson moment for Noonan and Murphy.
No work for either one west of the Mississippi or south of the Ohio. Ever. Again. Period.

I thought the MSM’s DNC-faxed talking point LAST week was that Obama was a great candidate because his life made a “good story”.

The Peggy Noonan we all knew and loved went away a long time ago. Now, she is as much of a pontificating blowhard as the Leprechaun.

Suddenly Peggy Noonan's opinion is the most valid in history, according to Kos.

Question: How do you think they would react to Peggy Noonan if Peggy Noonan had been selected as McCain's running mate?

I used to read Noonan all the time. Somewhere over the last few years she went out of kilter somehow, and I haven’t been able to read her since.

They just can’t help themselves. It’s a very sad commentary on what the MSM holds up as professional journalism and unbiased reporting.

I could tell how biased they are just in their much poorer coverage and much harsher criticism of the RNC convention compared to the DNC convention. It is night and day, and for them to claim unbiased objectivity is SO laughable. You do a split screen and compare the analysis sections and the contrast is incredibly clear.

Yes, she certainly has changed over the past few years. I rarely read her these days. Perhaps she can keynote for Obama at the next convention.

Peggy became disenchanted with Bush years ago and turned against all things reasonable. I remember ready a piece which she wrote during a trip (I think to Paris) in which she waxed poetic and sounded like she had a screw loose.

Clowns on MSNBC

Either Noonan and Murphy are putting this out there intentionally or else they are unbelievable MORONS. Did they never hear of a "hot mike" before??? I'll be that MSNBC and other networks are keeping ALL of their mikes "hot" for whatever they might pick up.....

As for the substance of their views, they are very wrong, that's all. It's too bad they are giving ammo to the left, wheter or not by intent, I don't know.

Sadly, 90% of people like this can't take fading away graciously and so have to jump the shark and make outrageous statements to get back in with idiots, who will give them a few more minutes of fame.

At times like these, we really need some “adult language” threads so we can truly express the level of our contempt for media whores like Noonan.

Everyone wave goodbye to Noonan. She just lost any credibility and appearance of objectivity she ever had.

The WSJ will cut Noonan loose, although it will be by "mutual agreement", with some platitude that she is "pursuing other interests".

I don't know anything about Murphy, and whether this will hurt him. But, Noonan is toast.

What's going on with most of the media today is nothing short of a bloodless coup.

And IF they are successful, it may not remain bloodless.

They are every bit as biased as the Stalinists in the West that George Orwell warned us about.

The so called 4th branch of government is completely beholden to one political party and engages in pure yellow journalism.

This election cycle is so strange.

Here’s how I’ve been bumping Sarah Palin threads today...

Sung to the tune of “Oh! Susanna, don’t you cry for me.”

“Oh, no Bama, please don’t lie to me... for I’m off to Free Republic with a keyboard on my knee.”

I come from Minnesota with my keyboard on my knee;
I’m goin’ to Free Republic my true love for to see.
It rained all night the day I left,
the weather it was dry;
The sun so hot I froze to death,
Obama don’t you lie.

Oh! No Bama, don’t you lie to me;
I come from Minnesota,
with my keyboard on my knee.

I had a dream the other night,
When everything was still;
I thought I saw Obama dear,
A-coming down the hill.
The smearing lie was in Duluth,
The tear was in his eye,
Said I, I’m coming for the truth
Obama don’t you lie.

Oh! No Bama, don’t you lie to me;
I’m off to Free Republic,
with my keyboard on my knee.

I fight in my pajamas
It’s plain for all to see
I aim to be the next Buckhead
The media all hate me.
I fell in love with Sarah
When my sister bit a moose
The Guvnor’s family ate it up
And then they set it loose.

Oh! No Bama, don’t you lie to me;
I’m off to Free Republic,
with my keyboard on my knee.

I soon will be in Hawaii,
And then I’ll look all ‘round,
And when I find his birth record,
I’ll fall upon the ground.
But if I do not find it,
This Freeper’ll surely die,
And when I’m dead and buried,
Obama don’t you lie.

Oh! No Bama, don’t you cry for me;
I’m off to Free Republic with a keyboard on my knee

The only thing commentators have is their credibility. Peggy’s is gone. The only thing over is her career, unless she pulls an Ariana Huffington and goes all the way over to the other side.

They are both clearing quivering RINOs wanting someone in the model of Whitman in NJ (Murphy emphasizes how he comes out of the “blue state world”) who are looking only at how to get someone who can sit in the middle of the political spectrum. That’s not what this pick is about and that’s not what Sarah Palin is about, obviously. The great thing is that McCain DID make the pick, and it will be great once we start fighting back against all the Rat-weasels of the left.

After listening, it is not as bad as the initial post here presents.

What she is saying is that the Republicans always blow it when they try to go for the “narative”. Which is exactly what Obama is.

I think she may be wrong in this case. We shall see.

Agreed, I lost respect for her a long time ago — talk about someone focused on “narrative” .... she always thinks that writing histrionic columns in her flights-of-fancy style is more important than focusing in upon facts, issues, ideas and principles. To her the “story” she can spin is everything. She had some good moments in the ‘80s but she is essentially a very shallow person who happens sometimes to lean toward our side, sometimes now. But I have not trusted her in ages.....

Whenever I see her on TV, she looks like she is under the influence of something.
I just sent her an e-mail thanking her for finally unmasking herself.

Looks like the WSJ is clamping down on comments to this article. There are 5-6 pages of comments (at 10 comments to a page) made in the past 45 minutes that are currently not visible, probably because a moderator hasn't approved them.

I simply posted a link to the YouTube video. I suspect my posting will never be approved.

It would certainly appear that Peggy has in fact "jumped the shark". :(

From en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumping_the_shark:

Fonzie preparing to jump over a shark while on water skis, in a scene in Happy Days.

Fonzie preparing to jump over a shark while on water skis, in a scene in Happy Days.

Jumping the shark is a colloquialism used by U.S. TV critics and fans to denote that point in a TV show or movie series' history where the plot veers off into ridiculous story lines or out-of-the-ordinary characterizations, undergoing too many changes to retain the original appeal of the series.

Shows that have "jumped the shark" are typically deemed to have passed their peak as after this point critical fans can point to a noticeable decline in the show's overall quality.
