She had begun to feel stultified and dull, cooped up in New York. Her favorite saloons, those places where she could pop in any time of the day or night for a nip of sherry or a bottle of Bombay Sapphire, had begun to feel soiled and low-rent, populated with goatee-sporting, noodle-armed young men wearing skinny jeans, out for an exciting night of slumming at dive bars across the City. Her last few columns for the
Not just piping it &quot;in&quot; .. rather &quot;through&quot;... having the oil flow nonstop to refineries in Texas conveniently located right on the Gulf of Mexico, for, you know, ease of sending the refined fuel back up to all of us Americans by way of convenient ships sent to all the convenient ports located at all the coasts that totally surround all of our states in the nation, conveniently. ENERGY INDEPENDENCE!
Let&#039;s all think about Peggy Noonan&#039;s legacy for a moment.... Done? Good. Because that&#039;s going to be all the time that history devotes to her once she&#039;s stopped pooping out these hacktastic editorials.
Oh Peggy it was Grenada not Grenadine you drunken hussy that Saint Ronnie invaded so you are not special
Previous presidents only used the white house, air force one, and the secret service grudgingly. But &quot;This President&quot; as Bamz is referred to, just came in stone cold demanding shit and punching the white White House butler in the dick.
Next we&#039;re going to hear how he relies on athletic ability, instead of good old basketball fundamentals.
<a href="http:\/\/dish.andrewsullivan.com\/2014\/05\/02\/oh-peggy\/" target="_blank">Sullivan</a>: &quot;...Of course, it&rsquo;s sometimes hard to pin down what the fuck Noonan is saying because her favorite word is &ldquo;seems.&rdquo; Never &ldquo;is&rdquo; &ndash; but &ldquo;seems.&rdquo; The world is always described through her own fuzzy, soft-focus lens, where no objective truth can really penetrate. ...&quot; Perhaps another glass of sherry for Lady Noonington.
Sigh... I forgot Rule #1: NEVER read the comments!
&quot;Doesn&#039;t have to suffer,&quot; also, because of course no president ever wants to achieve anything in office, or leave any kind of a legacy, and so it&#039;s been nothing but good times for Obama trying to work with Congress to do the people&#039;s business.
Noonan isn&#039;t wondering - she&#039;s reinforcing. &quot;That black president doesn&#039;t like you. He doesn&#039;t listen to you. He doesn&#039;t share your values. Pass it on!&quot;
Oh, I dunno. Can&#039;t most people just reel off the names of former presidential speech writers, the way some men can tell you the entire starting lineup of the 1947 Cubs? I know I can almost think of one guy just off the top of my head. Mike Something. or Mark.
Or the bumper stickers.
I believe she was (inaccurately) referring to JPII.
<i>The aspect of the presidency he seems to enjoy most is the perks &mdash; the splashy vacations, the planes, the hoops, the golf. When his presidency is over there will be the perks of the post-presidency &mdash; foundations, libraries, million-dollar speeches, staff, protection.</i>
Wait a minute Pegs. I think you&#039;ve actually plagiarized someone&#039;s column about Chimpy W. Boosh.
But you&#039;ve managed to acheive the wingnut perfect storm. Why project only your fears, biases and attitudes when you can project your greatest failures too.
Dashboard John Paul and John Paul On a Rope to follow.
Why am I not surprised that she manages to spin a whole bunch of tripe out of &quot;A and B are different and cannot be compared, but I will compare them anyway because I&#039;m on deadline&quot;? Next time Pegs, just send in a mimeo of your last column. It&#039;s not like your editors would notice.
