Skip to comments.Noonan: Americans Vote for Maturity (FWIW)

'The people have spoken, the bastards." That would be how Democrats in the White House and on Capitol Hill are feeling. The last two years of their leadership have been rebuffed. The question for the Democratic Party: Was it worth it? Was it worth following the president and the speaker in their mad pursuit of liberal legislation the country would not, could not, like? And what will you do now? Which path will you take?
The Republicans saw their own establishment firmly, sharply put down. The question for them: What will you do to show yourselves worthy of the bounty?
The Republicans won big, but both parties return to Washington chastened. Good.

Peggy Noonan has a gift for stringing together clever sounding words, but so (some say) does Eminem. After she gave us a glimpse inside her kimono in 2008, I have trouble seeing her as anything but an elitist, opportunistic, hack who will pick whichever words happen to suit the moment (and keep the checks rolling in).
When I see Noonan, I go to the next story. Fair weather Republican and certainly a BIG RINO!
Nothing to see here move on.
go away peggy.
Go live with Christopher Buckley at the White House doghouse.
It was a good read. I have a tough time reading Peggy Noonan after her orgasmathon over Obama when he was elected. I suppose that when the next great liberal “uniter” comes along, she’ll be drooling all over him/her too.
I’d rather read Karl Rove’s opinion on the recent election (and, No, I have absolutely no interest in reading Karl Rove’s opinion on the recent election).
I dislike Noonan, and therefore, don’t give any weight to her doodlings. Noonan is an elitist, above all else. She will wander from conservative to liberal, depending on what’s required to keep her elitist card in good standing.
It’s the same reason I don’t like Colbert much more than I don’t like Stewart. Stewart is a liberal, and won’t deny it. Colbert is a liberal who satarizes conservatives as his schtick.
Alan Colmes is to Jon Stewart what Peggy Noonan is to Stephen Colbert.
I guess the thrill is gone for Matthews and Noonan.
And most of the electorate.
Didn’t Noonan endorse Obama?
What a shrew. By working hard and smart, Palin just did more than anyone to bring in a conservative Congress—and Noonan calls her a ‘nincompoop’.
Peggy go away you leftist hack...
You are exactly right.
Noonan is a fine wordsmith, but anyone who believed for a second that Obama would be a pragmatic uniter blah blah blah is just stupid.
peggy nooney is a looney.
The question for the Peggy Noonan: Was it worth it?
Was it worth nearly endorsing Obama in 2008 and tacitly aiding the president and the speaker in their mad pursuit of liberal legislation the country would not, could not, like? And what will you do now? Which path will you take?
Of course she did he was a ticket to a more refined type of government called marxism lenninism.
She practically endorsed Obama, which solidifies her position as an idiot.
Interesting article. But I don’t understand why she felt the need to insult Sarah Palin. :/
No, but several of her articles exhibited hints of a flamboyant fantasy.
