Peggy Noonan Doth Not Approve Of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Trump

Peggy Noonan watched the State of the Union last night, and though she was overwhelmed with good feelings over Donald Trump's beautiful speech ... she was disappointed by a young upstart in the audience failing to give him his proper due. That whippersnapper? Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who didn't even clap for him when he spoke so compellingly about the Republican fantasy of infanticide. So rude!



Now, sure. The whole thing about infanticide is totally made up, because it sounds better than "forcing women to give birth to dead babies or non-viable babies that will only live for a few excruciating hours in severe pain." But couldn't AOC just gracefully pretend that Donald Trump was not talking out of his ass? Couldn't she pretend that she, a socialist, thinks socialism is bad? For the sake of bipartisanship? And class? Wouldn't it just be nicer? He cut to the muscle! THE MUSCLE! On ... things.

Just imagine if AOC had used her usual "spirited, warm and original" demeanor to applaud Donald Trump! Why, it would have been lovely! Everyone would have said, "Wow, guess we were wrong about Donald Trump being the worst!" and then we'd all get along, hold hands across America, and have tea and cake. And people would stop worrying about things like children being separated from their families at the border and never returned, and learn to love the idea of losing their reproductive rights. ALAS. It just doesn't seem like she has any interest at all in doing that.

Unfair!

As if that were not bad enough, Ocasio-Cortez appeared on MSNBC after the speech to explain, very clearly, what she felt was wrong with the speech, joined by her guest, Ana Maria Archila -- best known as the sexual assault survivor who persuaded Jeff Flake (in an elevator!) to open an FBI investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.

Instead of calling for unity, as Dame Peggy would have done, Archila even went into detail explaining exactly how it felt to see an accused sexual predator get a spot on the Supreme Court, making decisions on things that would impact the lives of millions of Americans. How gauche!

Perhaps someday Ocasio-Cortez will understand that it's not actual policy that matters, but the perception that everything is super great and fine. After all, no one would even notice that Donald Trump is saying bad things or doing bad things if people didn't go around reacting to them like they are bad. That's the game, and she must learn to play it! Or people will never love her as they love Peggy Noonan.

There was a time, a few months ago, when everyone had written off Elizabeth Warren. Well, not me, because I am a fabulous genius, but lots of other people. The "very reasonable" talking heads on all the various news channels, the kind of people who used to say things like "Oh, we'd like universal health care too, but 'the people' will never go for it!" but who definitely did not actually want universal health care for any reason, and even the Trump campaign. Though, to be fair, the Trump campaign didn't think Trump had much of a chance of winning in 2016 either.

But now, as more and more people hear her speak, hear her plans, hear what she wants to do and how she wants to do it... Elizabeth Warren is rising up in the polls. She's a contender. In the most recent Quinnipiac poll, she was closing in on Sanders for second place nationally, and in California and Nevada polls, she's in second place.

And now, according to a report from Politico, the Trump campaign is now scrambling and panicking and... stalking her?
