Peggy Noonan: Lunatic Dismantler



Remember how I said that Reuters' photographer deserved an instant Pulitzer for his hilarious picture of Zombie McCain? It turns out that they'll have to award a second one. Peggy Noonan's latest column was so illogical, so ridiculous, that it sent Ken Layne at Wonkette over the edge, resulting in a long, long deconstruction that is simply one of the greatest blog posts I've ever read, as hilarious as it is smart and true. Seriously, go read it. So good!

I guess I never did say anything about not writing for Wonkette anymore. Well, I'm afraid there was no drama, no acrimony, nothing like that. It was honestly just this: Condi got too boring, I got too lazy, and Wonkette got too broke (after being shed by Gawker) to make it worth my time to not be lazy and make Condi seem interesting on a weekly basis. So, you know, blame Condi!

That was a good article/rant.

Peggy, do us a favor and become the Miss Havisham you so desperately want to be, living your days in a dark room with the clocks stopped and a rotting dinner on the table.

I'd like to gather up a bunch of angry bull dykes, tie Noonan to a chair and gang ignore her.

There's so much to blame Condi for, Princess; this is just another item on the miles-long list.

So NOW Peggy is bailing on McCain? But she was allll about Palin after the VP debates. I mean, her finger isn't even dry yet.

Dick Morris has been playing this game lately too. It seems that in the last few weeks these hack have sensed a large distubance in the force and just want to be on the winning side...
