Why am I not surprised? I’m channel surfing while eating my Cheerios this morning and I whizzed by the CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) that apparently shares airtime on the Disney Channel. Just enough to see that famous Hate Monger Pat Robertson on the 700 Club break away to an interview with Peggy Noonan. Now you know me – If there’s a “liberal journalist” out there, I wanna hear what they have to say!
Scott Ross, the 700 Club geek gets to conduct the interview – Let’s see what this “liberal journalist” has to say, shall we?
Peggy: I am patriotic. I like these days, to draw the line between patriotism and nationalism. Patriotism is love of county. Nationalism is breast beating ‘we are number 1 and we can kick your butt.’ Look, politically, we want to be a great nation. We want Washington to stop, breathe in, resettle itself, and realize we are in a key moment.
Scott: OK, can we give Barack the benefit of the doubt at this point?
Obama has been in office less than sixteen days and they’re wondering whether or not they should cut him some slack?
Peggy: Look, he is a new president. Fifty-three percent of people voted for him, 46 did not – and did not in the time of two wars and economic collapse. So, you’ve got to realize that’s a lot of not support for Obama – 56 million people. What do you owe your new president? Grace. Give him a chance. Pray for him, seriously. Hope that as he prospers, we prosper. Hope that a new wisdom will come upon him as sometimes happens with a president.
Now you can go look at the original transcript and you can see for yourself that the word “not” is in italics and it’s been inserted in the wrong location. Grammatically, the sentence doesn’t make any sence. “…That’s a lot of not support for Obama”? She either said “that’s a lot of non-support for Obama” or she said “That’s a lot of support for Obama” and I’m betting she said the latter. The idiots at the 700 Club screwed it up when they wrote the transcript.
Scott: Where does this leave the GOP? It was probably ‘76 the last time they were beaten this bad in the polls. And the differences between now and then – does this leave the GOP out in the wilderness?
Scott: They’re out?
Peggy: They are refiguring. There are times in life, in your life and mine, but also in political lives, where a great party has suffered a series of defeats – ’06, ’08; where it has perhaps lost touch with the American people, and where you have to settle down and redefine yourself.
They’re “reconfiguring”!?! They’re not reconfiguring, Honey – THEY’RE DYING!
But Scott’s worried and you see it in his word-choice:
Scott: What are the positives now for the republicans?
Peggy: What are the positives? Well, in a cheap way, you can sit back and criticize the other guy for his stupid decisions. And let’s face it, a republican congress and a republican president have made plenty of mistakes. The fun is also, look – regeneration.
Scott: How do your personal spiritual beliefs inform what you write?
Peggy: I think they inform me as a human being; they inform everything I see and everything I think. I think about God more than I go to church, if you know what I mean. And I think that’s true of so many Christians. God’s on my mind. I ought to pray as much as God’s on my mind, because then I’d pray a lot. All I can tell you is God is real and so that infuses everything.
Ahhh…Now we know why Peggy Noonan has been on the 700 Club some twenty-eight times in the past six years! She’s a right-winger like the rest of the lot! She’s a shill for the Right Wing Machine!
Scott: There are major issues that become political, but are really moral: abortion, stem-cell research, homosexual marriage. Do you write about these things? Will you write about these things?
Peggy: Oh, sometimes. I wrote most recently about abortion when Obama and McCain were in the Rick Warren interview. However, you remember, there was that key moment when Rick Warren said to each candidate, ‘tell me, at what point does a fetus deserve human rights?’ (Obama video clip: Obama said, “to answer that question with specificity is – above my pay grade.’) I just thought, above your pay grade? Abortion is the issue that will never go away. And every kid in America who buys a condom knows when life begins – do you know what I mean? Buying a pack of condoms tells you, you know exactly when it begins!
WHAT?!?! Just a few seconds ago she said about Barack Obama: “What do you owe your new president? Grace. Give him a chance. Pray for him, seriously.” Seriously – You’re criticizing the President for something he said before he was President and you want us to give him a chance?! Peggy Noon: You’re a freaking idiot!
And you’re wrong Peggy Noonan: Every kid in America buying a condom doesn’t know when life begins, nor does the kid really care. The only thing going through that overly-hormoned kid when he’s buying a condom is thinking he’s going get laid and see what his girlfriends boobies look like outside of that training bra, you stupid stupid Little Shill.
Shortly after John McCain (R-AZ) announced Sarah “the Pit Bull/Barracuda/Grizzly Mom” Palin (R-AK) last September, Peggy Noonan was at a luncheon where the topic of McCain’s choice was brought up. She was heard saying that McCain’s “campaign was “over”. She went out on a retraction by saying:
She doesn’t believe McCain can’t win. Indeed, in a message she sent out after the conversation on the MSNBC set made it onto YouTube, she noted that “at an on-the-record press symposium on the campaign on Monday, when all of those on the panel were pressed to predict who would win, I said that I didn’t know, but that we just might find, ‘This IS a country for old men.’ That is, McCain may well win. I do not think the campaign is over, I do not think this is settled …”
Oh Sweet Jesus… She’s not only a Press Whore for the GOP – She’s a certifiable moron.
