Did she mention she saw a Mexican?What ho, a missive from Ol’ Whatsername, the Dowager Countess, Peggeth Blah Blah Etc. (PEGGY NOONAN. HER NAME IS PEGGY NOONAN AND SHE WOULD LIKE TO SMOKE SOME MARIJUANA.) Peggy Noonan is sorry — really, you can feel her tender concern — at Barack Obama’s stubborn insistence on dividing the country and making Republicans hate him. It is his fault, though; he did insist on being and winning election as a Democrat, and a “suntanned” one at that. But Peggy has a particular bill of charges against His Excellency The Great Usurper, and if the bailiff would read them now:

*For he has been too clever and “devious” in forging a compromise that would allow women to have basic preventative care covered by their insurance while also keeping the Church from having to pay for it.

Then his operatives flooded the airwaves with dishonest—not wrongheaded, dishonest—charges that those who defend the church’s religious liberties are trying to take away your contraceptives.

It is also dishonest to point out that the Church getting its Holy Balls in an Uproar over an insurance company offering contraception to its employees when it has no hand in paying for it seems to be the very epitome of the Church trying to take away your contraceptives. Because we are dishonest.

*For he has been Creepy in colluding with Our Number One Enemy The Russians.

There was the open-mic conversation with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in which Mr. Obama pleaded for “space” and said he will have “more flexibility” in his negotiations once the election is over and those pesky voters have done their thing.

Because it would be dishonest of President Terrible to acknowledge reality in that before an election he can count on getting even less support from Congress than usual.

*For he has been both too underwhelming and too whelming in his remarks on the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

At the end of the day, the public reaction seemed to be: “Hey buddy, we don’t need you to personalize what is already too dramatic, it’s not about you.”

We go to different cocktail parties than does Ms. Noonan, and apparently know a different “public” as well. Also we are dishonest.

*For he is a poor simpleton who doesn’t understand the Constitution.

Now this week the Supreme Court arguments on ObamaCare, which have made that law look so hollow, so careless, that it amounts to a characterological indictment of the administration. The constitutional law professor from the University of Chicago didn’t notice the centerpiece of his agenda was not constitutional? How did that happen?

Ooooh, oooooh, pick me! Pick me! “It happened because every single person who had ever supported this reform — i.e., every single Republican back when it was a Hoover Institute Heritage Foundation proposal and a Mitt Romney program, because the Impostor does have a sad tendency to try to compromise too much — has now discovered it is unconstitutional when passed by a Democrat.” Too easy, try something harder please.

*For he has ignored the economy in favor of health care.

The president had his mind on health care. And, to be fair-minded, health care was part of the economic story. But only a part! And not the most urgent part. Not the most frightening, distressing, immediate part. Not the ‘Is America over?’ part.

So what we’re hearing is: Peggy Noonan has insurance. That is very nice for her! Next time she is an unemployed single mother without insurance and the radiologist is making “oh shit” faces about the breast masses while stammering that she doesn’t have a breast cancer diagnosis “yet,” she can be sure to tell us how not frightening, not distressing, and not immediate it is.

*For he has not made cooperation happen.

An American president has to make cooperation happen.


*For even his supporters will not be that sad when he loses.

If you jumped into a time machine to the day after the election, in November, 2012, and saw a headline saying “Obama Loses,” do you imagine that would be followed by widespread sadness, pain and a rending of garments? You do not. Even his own supporters will not be that sad.

Peggy Noonan saw a Mexican once, so she knows how we feel about Hopey, which is, of course: BURN HIM. [WSJ]

  • Peggy decries Obama "operatives" '"charges that those who defend the church’s religious liberties are trying to take away your contraceptives."

    This is what Teh Peggington is so swift at: Swapping the gist of each of two scenarios to confuse the reader which is the agitator. When in fact the church is behaving as though [rephrasing]:

    "Those who defend their contraceptives are trying to take away your church's religious liberties."

    This would be the perception being played out by the pseudo-victimized against their mock oppressors; not the other way around.

    • SayItWithWookies

      It is the logical oversight of all these small-government advocates that the Constitution prevents government from telling you what you can do in order for some other organization to tell you what to do. A fundamental misunderstanding of how one protects rights.

    Dear Miss Peggy,
    's my suggestion for this weekend: Go out to the garage and get the shop vac, stick the nozzle up your cooch and suck all the dust and cobwebs out. Next, have a nice douche (for you, I suggest strawberry) and get the whole place nice and clean. After this go get a good bikini wax, in fact, go Brazilian. Now go to your liquor and medicine cabinet and really load up so you can be nice and loose. Okay, here comes the hard part. Find some Republican man to just really fuck your brains out. I know you've probably forgotten since it's been awhile but a good fuck can really clear your mind and improve your disposition. Try it and let me know.

    Oh, my! Dame Peggy has discovered sarcasm! She's not too good at it though. Because I guarantee that whatever Kennedy may say, and whatever the three hand-groomed-from-law-school Federalist society political operatives disguised as Justices may say, and whatever the lazy, overrated slob who states things about the bill that are so demonstrably false (clauses removed before final passage), and so laden with Talk-radio slang as to make clear that his "knowledge" of what's in the bill comes not from actually reading the bill or even asking his clerks to read the bill and summarize, but just from Fox&Rush type media and forwarded emails from drinking buddies may say, whatever any of those five end up saying, there will be four Supreme Court Justices who say that the bill is constitutional start to finish. And I guarantee that their opinions will be more legally compelling than the "I'm going to appeal to an insanely broad principle that would stand Supreme Court jurisprudence on its head and wreak havoc, so this must never be used as a precedent for anything else, ever" principle introduced into legal history by Justice Scalia in Bush v. Gore.

    [Coda: Additional perspective on SooperGenius Scalia: remember that this was someone who, in a case about eliminating obstacles to executing someone possibly innocent – a literally life and death matter – structured his questioning around his claim that prisoners always have a hope of executive clemency from the Governor, clearly ignorant of the fact that three states don't allow such clemency. Couldn't even be bothered to ask one of his clerks to check. Lazy hack.]

      I am no Constitutional Expert, but I'm convinced that the mandate should be found to be Constitutional and the Justices would have to really tie themselves in Logical Knots to find it not so. That said, the Court that brought us Bush V. Gore and Citizens' United among other lovelies makes me extremely nervous. If they slag the Medicaid expansion, they could conceivably redefine Federal power so radically that it would roll back the entire New Deal reforms enacted since 1937

      As an aside,I'm convinced that the Justices don't want CSPAN to televise the Court's proceedings because they're afraid the cameras will catch Thomas sleeping or just fucking off and playing Angy Birds.

      Chichikovich–u r best c'mtator of all time.

  • I respectfully invite Ms. Noonan to go fuck herself.

    • And nosh on a cocktail tray laden with lightly salted rat dicks, also.

    • PuckStopsHere

      She should go skull-fuck herself, actually.

  • terriblyfamous

    So if there's not a widespread sadness, pain and a rending of garments (WTF, is she Charles Dickens?), that means the electorate is like, "meh" about the election? It's either total pathos or total apathy?

  • TheSheriffsNear

    Becca, darling, I understand this is your blog/personal plaything/courage journal. And you really are a doing a fantastic job keeping up the place. However, and I say this with love, when it comes to all things Peggy Noonington, you should let Jim Newell handle it. That's what he was born to do.

    • I thought this fresh angle on Noonan had just the right amount of outrage over the glittering apex of her prevarication.

      Also, why does everybody feel free to patronize the new proprietress with personally-addressed comments, just because she's a woman? Were you all so afraid of Ken Layne? I guess I'm the only one who ever got uppity with him.

      (Ms. Schoenkopf, please don't make any sudden movements, on account of my nose.)

      • HistoriCat

        I thought everyone was afraid of Ken Layne because he always seemed to be about one outrage away from pulling the plug on the whole damn site.

      • PuckStopsHere

        What Chet sed.

    • commiegirl

      Jim is live-blegging elsewhere this week, just because he likes *money.* Gah.

  • __kth__

    She probably had a point about lefties/liberals feeling betrayed by Obama, but she lost sight of it after the sixth wine spritzer or so.

  • Apparently, Conchita (the maid) has been spiking Dame Noonington's Oxy/Viccoden/Valium cocktail with LSD.

  • The funny part is that she clearly handles her drugs better than Andy Breitbart did.

    • C_R_Eature

      To be fair, she's had much more time to build up a physiological tolerance.

      • She probably gets too blitzed to wander around screaming incoherence at strangers too and straining the heart too bad.

        • C_R_Eature

          Yeah, and she's obviously into the Downers, rather than the Uppers. Less stress. Look how long Keith Richards has been around.

  • anniegetyerfun

    I work with a woman who is just like this. Every day is a struggle to maintain my composure when she opens her mouth.

    • C_R_Eature

      Does your state have a "Stand Your Ground" law?

    • Steverino247

      Let's try this again.

      Take a deep breath, let it halfway out, then slowly squeeze that curved piece of metal that makes the weapon discharge, because the first syllable in that name for that curved piece of metal makes your comment go away (hint: It sounds like the name of a certain former Alaskan Governor's son). It is also the name of Roy Rogers' horse.

      • Trigger trigger trigger.

        • PuckStopsHere

          Maybe that's what Santorum was trying to say.

  • Oh my….I did not know what this cretin looked like. I thought that pic was the mother from "Arrested Development".

  • el_donaldo

    She's a mean drunk.

  • WiscDad

    She's absolutely correct. We will NOT be upset when he loses…cause he's not going to lose.

  • WiscDad

    In psychology, that approach would be called inception. Planting dreams of what's to come in peoples minds. Won't work on me. I'm immune cause I wear a tinfoil hat.

      Do steel Colanders work too? Just wondering.

        Of course not – colanders have holes!

    Nooners could use one, badly.

    Or perhaps it was done badly last time.

    Sounds like she has a pre-existential condition.

  • sullivanst

    The president had his mind on health care. And, to be fair-minded, health care was part of the economic story. But only a part! And not the most urgent part. Not the most frightening, distressing, immediate part. Not the ‘Is America over?’ part.

    Uh, Peggy, hon, you might care to take a brief look at at a CBO forecast to find out what is the principle driver of our long term deficit projections. Healthcare is not just "a" part of the economy, it's the biggest part of our economy, at about 17% and growing.

    • HELisforHEL

      Silly Puss! Dame Nooninshire dost not require facts or any of your other liberal, brain-using notions.

    • Obama only pointed this out over and over, every time he talked about health care reform.

      • sullivanst

        See HELisforHEL's comment ;)

  • dinkybossetti

    "do you imagine that would be followed by widespread sadness, pain and a rending of garments?"

    I don't imagine that because, while I have been witness to people experiencing many different levels of pain and sadness, I have not once seen a person rend their garments.

    I do remember people cheering in the streets of my Philly neighborhood when Obama was elected, which at the time was something I'd never witnessed – Americans reacting so jubilantly over the outcome of an election. So I guess maybe it isn't so far-fetched to think there would be rending of garments if he loses in November (which he won't).

    Peggy Noonan

    The trouble is that Mork from Ork talked like he was on speed, so the only thing I understood was "Noonan noonan"


  • Gainsbourg69

    "Then his operatives flooded the airwaves with dishonest—not wrongheaded, dishonest—charges that those who defend the church’s religious liberties are trying to take away your contraceptives."

    The democratic party is tricking all you sluts.

  • HELisforHEL

    I must say, in my best version of Dame Noonanness, that Our Dear Lady Rebecca Schoenkopf has written a supremely excellent post. It has gentled my heart with wonderful bouts of laughter and mirth. I bestow ever so many good graces upon it.

    (Seriously–I loved this post.)

    Sounds like someone lost her George W. "Bush" vibrator!

  • owhatever

    She speaks and all I hear is Kardashian.

  • She's right, I would not be sad. Outraged, horrified, terrified, shocked, stunned and pretty much totally disgusted and disillusioned with the human species, especially those in the middle country of North America, but not sad. Sad doesn't begin to cover it.

  • finallyhappy

    Her plastic surgery looks like she uses the House of Wax ala Vincent Price- like Callista.
    If the Prez loses- I hope some of you will come and see me in Costa Rica.

    Also, everybody thinks she got her writing job because she slept with Don Draper Ronald Reagan, even though she works twice as hard as the men-folk.

  • docterry6973

    I always read Peggy Noonan when I want to deepen my self-awareness, and she may be on to something here. I am a liberal and Obama has almost behaved like a liberal several times, yet I can't quite identify with the guy, can't feel like he is a guy from my neighborhood. There is just something about him that makes him seem distant, foreign, 'other', if you know what I mean. Strange that I just can't quite put my finger on it…

  • rickmaci

    Her shrill screechy holier than thou Catholic school nun voice seeps through into her written words. How can I say this delicately? Peggy Noonan is an example of what causes Catholic college boys to decide they would prefer to date Jewish girls.

  • WonkCynic

    The problem with the po peoples dat be wantin' da Obarmer health insurance is dat they is still too uninformed to know 'bouts things like deductibles and what not. Once they be gettin' dat there insurance, they'll be finding out why everybody's been a bitchin' about it. "Hey! Obarmer! I gots insurance now. Why I has to pay dat there deductible? You means I still gots to pay for my healthcare with the money I don't gots even though I gots me some insurance?"

    Nothing in this world is free. Especially when it comes with an attached mandatory premium and a sky high deductible. But telling dem po folks that they handsome nigga prince been a lyin' to dem while laughing behind their backs about how stupid they is be racist!

    And the Grateful Dead can be heard at the rally playing "Come, Hear, Uncle Tom's band, la la la la la"

      Meanwhile Rhianna, wearing a sleeveless Kony 2012 t-shirt, no bra, and skimpy panties, shakes her little black tushi. Mia Farrow (the "intelligent", "informed" white chick with the pretty smile) can be seen at the corner of the screen writing letters praising Obarmer for the wars he's preparing to start in Africa. Yes… the "intelligent" white hippie chicks protested Vietnam, but in the interest of obtaining more black babies for rich white movie stars to adopt, it has become necessary to send troops to Africa! Another excuse for our Uncle Tom Prez to get a bunch of poor redneck, black, and chilli shitter troops killed in useless wars. But hey! At least the fancy rich liberal white bitches will be able to continue their charade of giving a shit while turning a blind eye to the dead ragheads all over North Africa and Gaza.

      Dear Prudence! Tell your sister to pull her head out of her ass!
