Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • CrunchyKnee

    Peggington cares not for the Negroes, even if they were indeed hand-picked by her banking pamphlet owners and their ilketh.

  • the problem child

    Maybe she meant Boerish? All that trekking between stations with only mules for transport?

  • groove

    Oh how I despise the times the President of the United States (the country in which I live) tell me what he’s thinking about doing. How boorish. I’d rather wake up one day and say, “Oh, we’re in a war now? Sure, why not!”

  • ManchuCandidate

    Doesn’t she mean, Moorish?

  • AbstinenceOnly Ed

    Surely she meant whorish.

  • MingPicket

    Something about a pot and a kettle maybe.

  • AbstinenceOnly Ed

    [re=415385]MingPicket[/re]: Pegoweth Noonangeterox buys only the whitest pots and the whitest kettles, what for to better contrast against her chefs’ dusky ebon skin.

  • Crank Tango

    [re=415380]ManchuCandidate[/re]: or moreish, as in “he’s on five channels, but I could really go for him being on like ten or twenty; he’s so moreish!”

  • Country Club Jihadi

    [re=415380]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Love u.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    “boorish President,” “uppity Negro”

    po-TAY-toe, po-TAH-toe

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    She needs a spanking. Any volunteers?

  • Holy Cow!!

    My god, she’s insane.

  • Johnny Zhivago

    That’s Pegeyth Noonington, I believe…

  • Noonan

    I actually said it was “porridge.” It’s a literary metaphor, dear readers / viewers. Obama went on every channel, tasting which one felt just right. By the time he was finished, he was quite full and yet unsatisfied. It’s a corollary for what he’s doing to you, the American peasant class. The failed and failing policies of this administration is eating all of your porridge (which you are probably resigned to eating after he caused the economic collapse) and though full in belly, wants more porridge.

    Obama is porridge. You are poor.

  • TGY

    Our Pegs is horny for some hot boorish lovin’, methinks. If she knew what that is, which is doubtful. Boorish?

  • Way Cool Larry

    God, she’s annoying. I don’t recall her complaining about Shrub getting on TV constantly and in our faces about the necessity of invading Iraq or whatever he had a hard-on about.

  • Country Club Jihadi

    800 pound gorillas do things “because they can”. A dog licks his balls “because he can”.
    Can we please see the clip of Obama handing George his ass on a silver platter yesterday? That was delightful.

  • the problem child

    [re=415380]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Nope, he was speaking Afrikaans. Definitely boerish.

  • hiphophitler

    Ten boor diamonds!

  • mocowbell

    Why dost Dame Peggoty of the House of Noonington carefully insert her royal noggin up into her dark and distant nether regions? Because she can.

  • Sharkey

    Today, we are all subtlely damaged. Thanks Peggy.

    And eat a bad of boor’s dicks.

  • TVarmy

    a rude, unmannerly person : at last the big obnoxious boor had been dealt a stunning blow for his uncouth and belligerent manner.
    • a clumsy person.
    • a peasant; a yokel.

    Sounds more like Gerald Ford or Joe the Plumber. And I thought peasants/yokel presidents were in, post-Palin and Joe-Six Pack.

  • PsycGirl

    Maybe she meant “Borscht”?

  • populucious

    Methinks the dusky Moor mayhaps bumped Our Lady Noon from her appointed Sunday rounds to Les Stations de la Boite des Images?


  • V572625694

    Is there anything more pathetic than some lace-curtain Irish servant of the ruling class looking down her nose at some other descendant of immigrants with slightly less status (in her view, at least), and calling their behavior “boorish”?

    My death panel gives Dame Peggy two thumbs down.

  • norbizness

    She’s disenchanted with any President that can speak in complete sentences without having her dreadful, maudlin prose pre-fed into him.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    Leanest thou near my ass for to kisseth it.

  • Jim Demintia

    Had I so lavish of my presence been,/ So common-hackney’d in the eyes of men,/ So stale and cheap to vulgar company,/ Opinion, that did help me to the crown,/ Had still kept loyal to possession/ And left me in reputeless banishment,/ A fellow of no mark nor likelihood…

  • Anonymous Office Zombie

    OMG. Just OMG. There are no words. Every time I think we exaggerate too much about Princess Peggy, she ends up saying something like this.

    Get thee back to Narnia, you vain and cretinous half-wit.

  • friendlyskies

    Oh gawd that Botox face! From about :12 to :20, it’s like her face *needs* to have a forehead wrinkle, to express what it’s trying *so hard* to express… yet, it remains frozen and frustrated in the perpetual rigor mortis of desperate faux youth. Girlfriend needs to spend some quality time with Pelosi, learning to work that shit out celebrity style. Our power cougars don’t need no stinking forehead wrinkle for an effective slapdown, they’ll kill you with a consciously insincere grin and the glare off their laser-beam eyes.

  • WhatTheHeck

    She cares not for young Prince Simba covering the distant lands with his exuberant storytelling. This young Prince scares her although she would like him to bore her.

  • gjdodger

    Yeah, and a president blurting “read my lips” because some stupid speechwriter told him to is just the essence of couth.

  • V572625694

    [re=415487]friendlyskies[/re]: Your avatar is an illustration from an old Tom Corbett novel, no?

  • Paul Tardy

    I realize that there was a ton of makeup and lighting tricks, not to mention botox and a lift, but I thought she was looking good, is that so wrong?

  • UnattendedConsequence

    I call for immediate defenestration!

  • swayzeland

    Obnoxious of Obama to talk to us. Unlike Peggy’s first and most wonderful pimp, St. Ronnie, who wouldn’t hesitate to broadcast his evil stupidity whenever there were insane people to empty out of the mental hoosegow. (When he lost his mind at the end, I was convinced that Alzheimer’s had a strong sense of irony.)

  • ifthethunderdontgetya”
  • Hooray For Anything

    Maybe if the pundits didn’t spend a goodly amount of time debating about whether or not the President should appear on all the Sunday pundit shows to discuss issues and instead spend that time intelligently discussing such issues, the President wouldn’t have to appear on all the Sunday Pundit shows.

  • Mustang

    Actally, Peggy’s little tirade would take first place in a boor contest. Where does she get off calling the president’s behavior boorish? It’s not like he’s lighting his farts and burping out the alphabet on prime time TV. Jesus, Peggo, get a clue and a dictionary.

  • imissopus

    Less Obama calmly and rationally discussing the issues, more uneducated fat asses screaming into the cameras about socialism and birth certificates!

  • gurukalehuru

    I want Obama TV, 24 hours, every fucking day, so fuck you, Peggy Noonan.

  • sezme

    Moar G&T Plz!

  • Guppy06

    Peg Peg Peg… if I didn’t want Barry in my face all the time, I could just, y’know, turn off the television. Isn’t that something you’re supposed to be a proponent of to begin with?

    Besides, unless he starts giving interviews to Cartoon Network, I think I’m pretty safe from him taking over my normal television viewing habits.

  • BeWoot

    Although Peggington’s shit stinketh not, yea verily she is full of it. Still, I think she’s cute.

  • Guppy06

    [re=415555]BeWoot[/re]: Yeah, she needs to undo a few more shirt buttons.

  • heathenish

    Because Dick Cheney and Geo.Bush would NEVER EVER do anything like this borish TV show, or shows to promote their wars, and such. Yeah, fuck you Queen Margaret Noonington-Penningtion.

  • jagorev

    [re=415374]the problem child[/re]: his is just like the atrocities committed in the Boer War, when Peggy was a wee lass

  • chascates

    Peggy insists on being in our faces with her Georgetown views just because she can. Maybe it’s just the Adderall but she’s really mugging for the cameras these days.

  • Come here a minute

    [re=415570]heathenish[/re]: Dame Peggy’s mushroom cloud will be a smoking gun.

  • dr.giraud

    Dearest Pegs, it was Ronnie Reagan who started the cycle of appearing in daily non-news photo-ops in to appear on the evening news EVERY FUCKING NIGHT. Hmm, you’ve heard of him, ummm, yes?

  • sati demise

    Dame Peggington comes out for a tea bagging.

    Just where she belongs, in a crowd of medicated crazies, spouting nonsense while eating a bag of dicks.

  • Minnie Mean

    I think poor ol’ Peggetron was having a hot-flash during this tirade. She’s acting all antsy and pent up – she needs a thousand points of estrogen.

  • Aurelio

    Peggington has a new hairdresser. She must have fired her egg beater.

  • eclecticbrotha

    What Peggy Noonian Signh really wanted to say was

    “How dare that boorish half-breed overpower us with his visage on a daily basis like some sun-tanned Great and Powerful Oz, using his Sammy Davis Jr-ish coolness and Jedi Mind Tricks to suavely convince the electorate that we should trust him. How I long for the olden days of flaunting our cherished ability to brainwash the gullible populace about what they should believe about daily events in the world. Oh when will we be free from the tyranny of this ghetto usurper?”

  • wildturtlelove

    Just a case of textbook projection. If/when the bulldog clips and rubberbands holding back her face were to snap (Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil”), she’d turn back into Wonder Warthog. Definitely a boarish look, either way.

  • CorkPopper

    I can’t wait for her to explain next how a leader who is brazenly attempting to lead is actually gauche.

  • Elm Hugger

    Is it just me or does Peg look allot like Jessica Walter in that photo? She gave me shivers in “play misty for me”.

  • Anita Cocktail

    [re=415397]Noonan[/re]: Let them eat Quake–r oats?

  • desertwind

    “boorish” seems to be the right’s meme on that. (see Howie Kurtz et al).

    Of course, this also goes with the “he’s too cowardly to do fox” meme.

    And the “shouldn’t he be appealing directly to the american people” meme.

  • ShiningMathPath

    [re=415660]Elm Hugger[/re]: yeah great photoshop to make her Ladyship look like that!

    Oh… okay, never mind.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    Next week, Dame Peggington can sigh heavily while lamenting how uncouth it is that the President has underling Robert Gibbs ANSWER QUESTIONS from reporters.

  • Decker

    Every time that prissily coiffed hear rattles around on her skinny neck, you can hear the pickled olives rolling around through the fumes.

  • chascates

    And Peggers added:

    “It’s always good to cool things down, but essentially what we have here is a very new president. He’s only been here for ten months. He is a young man. He didn’t have deep, long, profound experience. He is attempting right now to change, what it is, seventeen, eighteen percent of the GNP of the United States of America, changing how it works, health care.”

    He’s practically a child. A boy, if you will.

  • lochnessmonster

    Is it just me or does Miss Peggy Noonan have some sort of a facial tic or affliction where she scrunches up her face and bobs her head around like a bird? I could hardly watch her yesterday morning. OR am I the one with the problem and she is the normal one???

  • ifthethunderdontgetya”

    [re=415976]lochnessmonster[/re]: Lady Peggington is doing it because she can.

    Lean away!

  • sati demise

    [re=415794]chascates[/re]: He is a young man…whippersnapper.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Pegs is taping this show at, what 9am ET, and she’s really drunk, probably on champagne? I’m actually kinda impressed. I wanna party with Pegs next time on on Eastern Time. She’s a crazy old broad.

  • ericstoltz

    OK, so Barry’s health reform was a doomed failure because he didn’t try hard enough to explain it. That proved he was an arrogant Muslin terrorist socialist fascist communist. Now when he goes all out to explain it, he’s Moorish. Oh wingnuts, your crazy is so endearing.
