Skip to comments.Noonan: Mischievous Media Wants to Make Palin Face of GOP
Posted on 11/26/2008 6:54:02 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Why does Sarah Palin continue to receive so much media coverage? Peggy Noonan has a theory. The Wall Street Journal columnist believes the MSM is up to what she considers "mischief": attempting to make Sarah Palin the face of the Republican party.
Noonan propounded her premise during an appearance today on Morning Joe.

The times now call for destruction of our enemies within the party first and , yes, to undermine anyone who gets in our way....in case you don't know your history, that's exactly what we did for RR when he was challenged by all the Rino's starting with GHWB.....and our friend from Ohio has the balls to take the fight to the RINO's.....( if you doubt me, look up Terry Dolan ).....so do us a favor and stay home by the fire while the real fighters engage the enemy within our own party.
You see, friend, you gave yourself away by saying that you voted AGAINST CARTER, rather than FOR REAGAN.....that's all I needed to know. You'll be with us aginst BO rather than for SP....and that's fine...just don't go giving advice to young tigers like our Ohio friend....as I said, he and people like him, are the future of this great land.

Do you remember when you were growing up and believed yourself to be wise, accomplished, capable and successful in your endeavors? Would you remember having those feelings and sitting next to a stern, controlling, critical, watchful father who felt he needed to monitor your every move and every word? Well, that is the feeling I had when I watched Sarah sitting next to McCain.
I had the feeling when she gave her speeches (and I love her so I saw MANY of her speeches) how inspiring and exciting she was even when she had to give the same ole message over and over and over. I cannot see myself having to say the crappola that McCain’s people had her say without sounding like a recording...a boring recording. I think she did exceptionally well under the circumstances.
Her simplicity, her lack of polish was enchanting. I do, however, believe that she should take these next years and grow into the national scene which means spit shining her image and maturing her speech. I do not want to see her turn into a slick jaw mcgraw like the scheisters we now have in office. I hope she will remain a mirror of the ‘simple folks’, one of us and not one of them.
You misunderstand our young friend from Ohio. He doesn’t mean he’ll stop at RINO’s running against Palin. He means he’ll undermind anyone. Take a look at his recent attacks against Bobby Jindal. Jindal is a true conservative, the real deal. It’s a pity that you can’t tell the difference between a political fighter and a love struck adolescent who think we (in his own words) OWE Sarah Palin. Give me a break.
Look , who the hell knows, maybe SP will self-destruct before 2012. But for now young guys like "ohio" will be what drives the enthusiasm for the restoration of conservative rule.
There is a lot at stake. We need guys who will take a bullet for the cause. I don't particularly care what a man's motivation is to hit the beach....as long as he does it.
A woman who can energize the GOP like she did in just eight weeks is a Mega Asset. And anybody like that is going to attract hard core supporters. I love it. That's what we need....and if a few good men get rolled over in the assault to take back our party then so be it.
In Reagan's steamroller to the nomination some fine conservatives got run over because they were too slow to get on board. Men maybe smarter and more accomplished than RR....but he captured the hearts of the movement.....I think she is doing that now...maybe already has.
And that's why we need to encourage all the young turks out there to keep attacking anyone they think is not pure enough....now is not the time for subtle debate...but the time to cause trouble and shake up the GOP.
Noonan has lost her way. She’s become a milquetoast New York snob. With few remaining core convictions, her writing has lost its bite. I once looked forward to her columns, but I just don’t bother to go there anymore. Her decline began long before her Palin phobia set in.
I sense that you mean well for not only the GOP, but the country as well. However, I'll never be able to agree that the above is going to help either. Time will tell.
Yes. I think we both want what is best for the country....and we can disagree as to the means but still remain compatriots. As you say, time will tell. Let the games begin.
Apparently bashing Palin pays much better than writing boring books.
Pray for W, Palin and Our Troops
If it turns out that Peggy is right, do you think the Palindrones will man up and apologize to Peggy? Sorry, but I've been a fan of hers for well over 20 years. I didn't jump ship the second she uttered a negative phrase about Sarah Palin.
You are absolutely right. McNasty and his nasty boys and girls (one in particular, first name Nicole, forget her last name) did everything they could to stifle Palin and lose the election.
I’m really surprised that there isn’t more of an outcry from conservatives about what a rotten lousy stupid worthless creep McCain and his phalanx of self-proclaimed geniuses turned out to be.
Certainly, McCain is going to go down in history as one of the cretins of our age. I have no explanation for how he came to choose Palin but once he did choose her he shackled her and tried to turn her into a spittin’ image of his ole’ craggy crappy bipartisan cretin self.
Laugh out Loud. Hilarious.
I am not the only one who feels this way bud. Anyone who gets in her way is going to be treated like a Democrat. Attacked like a Democrat. dismantled like a Democrat.
My web site will be up and running in the next year.
I want to clerify. Anyone who attacks Sarah in any way is going to be treated like a Democrat. that includes the staff at the RNC.
As John McCain would say “you will know their names, I will make them famous”.
You got ‘em running scared.....keep us all informed when the web site goes up.
Lol, now you’re feeling self-important to boot. It just gets better every day.
