Dear God, she annoys the piss out of me.
 
2012-11-05 03:33:39 PM  
The only thing Peggy Noonan feels is shame every time she has to make the blow job rounds of GOP circles that allow her to be pundit.
 
2012-11-05 03:33:55 PM  
Peggy Noonan and Diane Sawyer were Nixon goons. One of them got over it.
 
2012-11-05 03:35:53 PM  
We begin with the three words everyone writing about the election must say: Nobody knows anything. Everyone's guessing.

Cewley: Peggy Noonan and Diane Sawyer were Nixon goons.


Peggy Noonan was born in 1950. Are you saying that she was working under Nixon in the White House between the age of 19 and 24?

She's a Reagan speechwriter, by the way, in 1984.
 
2012-11-05 03:45:31 PM  
This woman is pathetic and despicable, and I've felt that way ever since her comments about torture. Go crawl under a rug somewhere and leave the rest of us alone.

Don't try and confuse me with the facts.
 
2012-11-05 03:50:40 PM  
She thinks that just because she's guessing that everyone else must be. It's the same thing with Joe Scarborough. The math is too hard, so she ascribes it to "guessing"

2012-11-05 03:54:28 PM  
But are her feelings legitimate?
 
2012-11-05 03:54:41 PM  
I would like to go back in time and find whoever the person was who taught her how to use a typewriter, and bribe them way back then not to teach her.

It would not be much of a disruption in the space-time continuum or a loss to the media world.
 
2012-11-05 03:55:04 PM  
Actually that does ease my mind.

Peggy Noonan is wrong about everything, always.

Well I feel like Christina Hendricks is dropping by my place for a night of passion, but I don't think that will be happening either.

I FEEL Romney's gonna win. Obama SEEMS joyless on the stump. IN MY GUT, it'll be a GOP blowout.

What a party.
 
2012-11-05 03:58:51 PM  
Romney's crowds are building-28,000 in Morrisville, Pa., last night; 30,000 in West Chester, Ohio, Friday

Wasn't one of these a rally where it was freezing cold and people wanted to leave - buy Romney campaign workers wouldn't let them?

From tony Northwest Washington, D.C., I hear the same

Really? If NW Washington DC votes for Romney, I'll eat Peggy's snatchbox. Twice.

I do believe Romney has a chance to win, but this is may be the stupidest column written by an ostensibly "serious" pundit I've read all year.

God, this is embarrassing to read.
 
2012-11-05 04:10:17 PM  
Okay, Peggy, who actually wrote the Reagan Challenger speech?
 
2012-11-05 04:13:41 PM  
I have been saying for a while now that this election would be a replay of 2004. First, the incumbent's popularity was around 50%. Next the opponent was an out of touch and awkward rich guy from Massachusetts who believed that he should keep his powder dry and save his money until the end, thereby allowing the president to define him negatively. In addition, the president did a bad job at the first debate, giving his opponent a surge in polling. But this is now becoming too perfect. I remember is 2004 thinking that Kerry had a chance because of the huge crowds that he was drawing in the weeks before the election. I really did think that the momentum was with him throughout election day and it would be enough to carry him.

Those thoughts died at around midnight when the networks called Ohio for Bush. My guess is that the same thing happens to the GOP feelings at about the same time Wednesday morning.
 
2012-11-05 04:15:25 PM  
I wonder if it's the same feeling I get after eating too much fruit.

Dusk-You-n-Me: Memorializing the rightwing election projections


I like how Romney winning with 321 or 325 is a 'landslide' but when Obama won with 365 in '08 he just barely squeaked by.

that's because you are using raw electoral college results as opposed to the unskewed results. if anything, the 2008 presidential election was a mandate from the people for strong republican leadership.

Peggy Noonan, John Sununu, and Meat Loaf. It looks like Mitt Romney has the 1992 vote in the bag.

She got Palin right. Albeit after the fact.
 
2012-11-05 04:39:29 PM  
Peggy Noonan is a zero-credibility hack who has been busted shilling for beliefs that she doesn't actually hold. Remember when she was defending Sarah Palin on TV in 2008, and then got caught a few seconds later by a hot mic saying that she REALLY thought Palin was a bad pick. She's just another soulless cynic who gets paid to tell a group of people what they want to hear.

rynthetyn: Wednesday is going to be a mess when all the Romney supporters wake up convinced the election was stolen.


Nah, they'll all be watching Fox, and listening to Beck, Hannity and Limbaugh who will all be talking about the upset win by Romney and looking forward to the next 4 years of President Romney's administration.
Sure, back here in the real world, Obama gets re-elected, but when has reality ever infringed on their 'gut feelings'?
 
2012-11-05 04:48:45 PM  
Nobody knows anything. Everyone's guessing.
Um ... I guess that might be true for female rape-americans.
But SOME of us actually KNOW things.
I know that science is, well, science.
Math can be used to prove and predict things.
That is why it is a SCIENCE thing.

Are polls perfect? NO. But no pollster has ever stated that.
Are polls statistically meaningful? Hell yes. (polls vary, yes, blah blah blah blah)

IF she or anyone else really believed what she was saying, then they would be betting like CRAZY on the election.
They can get GREAT ODDS.
Hell, anyone who wants, I will give you 5-1 odds that Obama wins.

That would be hilarious if the stuck their fingers in their ears and just pretended the election didn't happen.

You GOP fellas do realize that he'll still be your president until January, win or lose....right?

Some election-eve nostalgia: the infamous 'statisticals' thread.
 
2012-11-05 05:12:02 PM  
The thing about Noonan is that she is a speech writer, not a policy expert. Her forté is turning a phrase, not coming up with cogent governmental decisions. While she is certainly as capable as anyone in having opinions on various matters, at the same time the core of what she does it write about what others do, not dictate what others should do. For that reason, every time she comes out with some prognostication, I get out the salt shaker and apply it liberally to whatever she puts in print.

Noonan is notable not because she is particularly insightful, but due to the inbred cult-of-personality and hero worship in journalistic circles. The media world loves to partake in self-congratulatory exercises on a daily basis and when they cannot reach far enough behind their own shoulder, they find colleague to use as a proxy.

For the hacks who may never get that big byline that elevates them into the pantheon of journalistic fame, latching onto a person like Noonan - with her one of her big political tag lines: "read my lips: no new taxes" which interestingly cost that president a re-election - is fawned over repeatedly by journalists looking for their own media come-to-Jesus quote. I guess by slobbering on Noonan's shoes, they think it might increase their chances.

Romney ends most rallies with his story of the Colorado scout troop that in 1986 had an American flag put in the space shuttle Challenger, saw the Challenger blow up as they watched on TV, and then found, through the persistence of their scoutmaster, that the flag had survived the explosion

Oh for Chissakes.

I assume your clever wordsmanship is suggesting that Obama has increased the national debt more than Bush did and Romney will. You're taking into account the two wars that Bush started that weren't on the books until after Obama took office and Romney's plans to increase the military budget and his plans to not follow Obama's exit plan in Afghanistan and his vaguely obvious plan to invade Iran, right? Or the fact that Romney has the same advisers that Bush, the guy who turned Clinton's deficit surplus into a record debt?

In 2008 there were conservatives on Fark betting anyone a month of TF that McCain would win.

I note that there are no conservatives doing that this time around.

Peggy Noonan spent four days attending the Bilderberg conference this year.
She never wrote about it, of course - she's not allowed to.
