On Peggy Noonan: Say not "media whore" but rather "media courtesan!"


Oh look at that baby bear, isn’t it cute?
Let’s take it home. That would be another decision along the lines of what I’m talking about; on par with what Noonan did when she inferred that Obama had grace. These are not good decisions. Their appeal is based on emotion, and emotional appeal can only be based on the immediate moment because there is no way to chart or predict where emotions are going to be further down the road. Also, they must be inherently narcissistic. It’s all about me. The stubby ears, the big brown eyes, the li’l pug-nose, everything that tiny bear cub has must be there to appeal to me, me, me. Just like when President Obama gets in there, He is going to do what I, I, I want Him to do. -- House of Eratosthenes

Update: Always worth revisiting is the classic Noonan takedown: "You're Peggy Noonan and you're jealous. "

I believe it was in the side lines where I read words that went something like this:
Journalists have gone from being lap dogs to lap dancers.
