In Which Peggy Noonan Starts Looking for a Warm, Damp Towel to Clean Herself Up

Cue ZZ Top's She Wore a Pearl Necklance:
"The president's biggest potential long-term problem in terms of the public part of the presidency became obvious to me only during the past week.... He is cold, like someone who is contained not because he's disciplined and successfully restrains his emotions, but because there's not that much to restrain. This is the dark side of cool." -- Peggy Noonan: Coruscating on Thin Ice - WSJ.com

Your Say

I don't want you back, Peggy. Just stay over there and deal with it.
Take McCain with you. If it gets lonely, we have plenty more.

Cool? Obama is the King of Dorks.

Necklance? Hmmm...I wonder if she bought it at a store on Marin Luther King, Jr. Drive. ;)

There's something tragically comic about a Manhattan socialite willingly being used like a porn actress and then whining about the experience.

And it took one of America's most prominent Useful Idiots THIS long to figure Obama out?

Gee, I also want to hear more from David Brooks and Chris Buckley.

Why should anyone in their right mind have any respect for these three Gooftard McNinnypants when it is obvious that the ONLY reason they voted for Obama was because he was the essence of urbane coolness?

Oh, and isn't Noonan the authoress of that imbecillic "Thousand Points of Light" speech that Mr. Country Club Republican tried to give voice to in his 1988 acceptance speech? You know, the elder Bush who murdered the Reagan Revolution in its crib?
