Skip to comments.Palin's Failin' (Noonan Barf Alert)
Posted on 10/16/2008 10:11:33 PM PDT by acsuc99
But we have seen Mrs. Palin on the national stage for seven weeks now, and there is little sign that she has the tools, the equipment, the knowledge or the philosophical grounding one hopes for, and expects, in a holder of high office. She is a person of great ambition, but the question remains: What is the purpose of the ambition? She wants to rise, but what for? For seven weeks I've listened to her, trying to understand if she is Bushian or Reaganitea spender, to speak briefly, whose political decisions seem untethered to a political philosophy, and whose foreign policy is shaped by a certain emotionalism, or a conservative whose principles are rooted in philosophy, and whose foreign policy leans more toward what might be called romantic realism, and that is speak truth, know America, be America, move diplomatically, respect public opinion, and move within an awareness and appreciation of reality. But it's unclear whether she is Bushian or Reaganite. She doesn't think aloud. She just . . . says things. Her supporters accuse her critics of snobbery: Maybe she's not a big "egghead" but she has brilliant instincts and inner toughness. But what instincts? "I'm Joe Six-Pack"? She does not speak seriously but attempts to excite sensation"palling around with terrorists." If the Ayers case is a serious issue, treat it seriously. She is not as thoughtful or persuasive as Joe the Plumber, who in an extended cable interview Thursday made a better case for the Republican ticket than the Republican ticket has made. In the past two weeks she has spent her time throwing out tinny lines to crowds she doesn't, really, understand.

Jealous woman. That’s all Peggy is anymore. Shame.
I wish Noonan and Parker would take a vacation somewhere together. How ‘bout Pluto. The Un-Planet.
With “conservatives” like Noonan and the Franken-contributing Ben Stein, who needs enemy Marxists?
I refuse to read her crap anymore. She has become a bitter has been.
Peggy Noonan has a severe case of Palin envy.
I still don’t know who she is.
Peggy is an elitist snob. Palin’s job is to stir up the base. She’s also a GOVERNOR so her focus isn’t foreign policy but that of an executive.
If Sarah was from the same country club then everything would be just ducky.
Noonan and Parker two of the most pathetic elitists i’ve ever seen. I’m embarrased they call themselves Conservatives.
Wow, Noonan’s jealousy rages on. Palin repeatedly rakes in crowds larger than any other candidate in history, and especially any other veep, and she doesn’t have the tools? LOL! Looks like Noonan is bucking for a nice cush job in bambi’s new Stalinist regime.....good luck with all that lady....
Like mo-do, she gets more bitter day by day...jealousy does that.
Give it up, peggy. Your day in the sun is over.
Peggy recently suffered from cranial-rectal prolapse when her head fell through her butt and broke her friggin’ neck.
She’s the VP candidate for pete’s sake. Their job is to go to rallies and attack the opposition.
“She wants to rise, but what for?”
To serve a purpose higher than herself. You, Peggy, wouldn’t understand that.
Sure. That's why nobody bothers to come to her events.
C'mon, Peggy, buy a clue.
...now so is Noonan. Lyin that is.
Oh my. Peggy didn’t jump the shark, it ate her and pooped her out.
Noonan has been reduced to writing phoney, attention-seeking drivel. Come get me, coppers. What kind of delusional pap is that?
Does she have a book coming out or perhaps a need to keep up her cred at the salons?
Anyone want to pass the hat for Joe?
Seems like the best way to put Miss Peggy in her rightful place.
