"Just you wait, Peggy Noonan, just you wait! You'll be sorry, but your tears'll be to late!"

"The case for Barack Obama, in broad strokes: He has within him the possibility to change the direction and tone of American foreign policy, which need changing; his rise will serve as a practical rebuke to the past five years, which need rebuking; his victory would provide a fresh start in a nation in which a fresh start would come as a national relief. -- Peggy Noonan in 2008: Obama and the Runaway Train [Now to be retitled "O Wa Ta Goos I Yam!"]

Today: Noonan on America's Crisis of Character -- The nation seems to be on the wrong track, and not just economically.

Your Say

Peggy Noonan, crisis of being bimbo. Obummer is just another flashing symble of the very decay she laments and she was all in for him.

Hey Peggy, a bit more thinking and a lot less emoting would be good.

I hope her pancreas can produce enough insulin to deal with all those saccharin, sanctimonious words she is now forced to eat.

Should have know she was no damned good when she claimed to be a Kennedy Democrat. She's just a dumb bitch who learned a lot of words in college.

"O Wa Ta Goos I Yam!"

When we played this trick on the Tenderfoots at Boy Scout camp, it was fed to them as some Siamese chant they had to repeat quickly over and over (until they got it): "Owaa Tagoo Siam".

With Peggy I would suggest: "Owaa Taditz Siam".

I stopped reading Peggy Noonan after she joined the other MSM, Obama boot-lickers, when he first descended. How could someone of her stature be so stupid and not detect a fraud from Chicago.
The then, candidate Obama told Joe The Plumber what he intended to do as president was but one clue, among many.

Now I'm not too sure, maybe she was brilliantly setting him up with a tricky head-fake. Maybe she was keeping her powder dry in order to unload on his ass in the last week of October. We'll see.

FTA: "This week Gallup had a poll showing only 24% of Americans feel we're on the right track as a nation."

You sure don't hear much about those right-track / wrong-track polls in the last few years do you? I actually thought they had stopped doing them. Back in 2008, it seemed like there was a new one every other day, and now... crickets.

How about some RT/WT polls on the ethics and accuracy of the American media?

Because such people as Noonan have no real stature.

Noonan, Chris Buckley, David Brooks, Andrea McCardle, etc., saw Obama as "one of their own" because he went to the right schools and stuff, and hung out with the right people. Shallow snobs. I think the worst part is that they were deathly afraid of Sarah Palin being the Vice President! Imagine that -- the horror!

Noonan goes Carteresque - I kept looking in her column for "national malaise."

Notice how when a Ruling Class putz steps in a big steaming pile of it, they didn't so much as make a mistake as they were witness to a systemic failure. I didn't bet on the wrong horse, the horse races are broken.

On second thought, it's not just Ruling Class dipwads that do this. The "Moderates & Independents" do this as well. They won't spend more than 15 seconds considering important political topics, but they are very, very, very proud of those 15 seconds. When they are hoodwinked by the most obvious ploy, they didn't mess up, the whole system is deficient. They participate not at all and then indict the system when the system didn't guess what they wanted and give it to them.

She had one hysterectomy too many.

I stopped reading Peggy Noonan when she wrote an article about making a safe room in her apartment and she advocated stockpiling plastic sheeting and duct tape. I wish I was joking. It was about a year after 9-11. The Palin bashing was just the confirmation that I had made the correct decision.

p.s. Here's the article! wow. It was actually Nov 2001.

Minor correction: Megan McArdle writes for The Atlantic. Andrea McArdle played Annie in "Annie" on Broadway.
