Noonan's Hack: Still Multiple Choice

Thanks to all those who played Page Six Family Feud, Wall Street Journal Edition. We said: Who is The Hack alluded to in Peggy Noonan's surprisingly bitter account of the Reagan funeral?


Survey said: David Gergen. By far the most popular guess. And he is a hack. Also, as noted by one player, "The conservatives have always hated Gergen because:

* he was not conservative enough

* he worked for Bill Clinton, and

* he worked at Kennedy School of Govt."

A minor problem: Gergen has written a book(s). And the Hack, according to Peggy, is bookless. Moving on.

Survey also said: Ken Khachigian. Says Ken's sponsor: "He fits in the time period and certainly seems to have been singing like a canary. [True. -- Ed.] I think he wrote the '82 Evil Empire speech, it's so gotta be him."

Survey also said: Dana Rohrabacher, who just seems to fit the bill generally. Plus, he's a guy with the name "Dana," which makes him seem sort of untrustworthy. On the other hand, he wasn't out whoring himself to the Gipperpornographers as much as Khachigian.

We'd like to note that just because any one of Reagan's former speechwriters is not The Hack, this does not mean they are not all hacks.

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
