Sarah Palin hits Peggy Noonan
Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/2/2014 9:47:20 AM

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin issued a backhanded compliment to Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan on Friday, commending her most recent column while at the same time faulting her for taking so long to come around. "Great article, Peggy, but where the heck were you when I and other commonsense conservatives were sounding the warning bell in ´08?" Palin wrote. "You joined the ´cool kids´ in mocking and condescendingly criticizing -- ultimately demanding that we ´sit down and shut up.´ Better late than never, though, Peggy and your ilk, because, meanwhile back in America..." Palin was presumably referring to Noonan´s

Comments:
Noonan finally figures out what Palin knew and commented on years ago.

Funny how common sense trumps an Ivy League diploma every time.

Got Tea?

Ms. Wordy Noonan was selling Obama in 08. Now she selling establishment , Palin is only pointing out the facts.

Are there any politicians out there who are as reliably right-- in both senses of that word--as Sarah Palin? Not many. That´s our problem. Those very few will be locked out of the Republican nomination by the GOP establishment. That´s their problem. Those two things taken together are America´s problem.

I sure wish Palin would run again !!!

We need a fired up person to take this country back again !!!

Somebody that will put Employment, Family, and Freedom up front again !!

I would go for a Romney-Palin ticket at this time, as I know both have the exact expertise to get this country back on it´s feet !!! Palin could take it to Hillary !!!

I stopped reading Noonan´s articles when she jumped on the Obama bandwagon back in 2008, along with Ann Coulter, sometime later, when she started bashing the conservative base.

I would hope the other female Palin bashers, like Noonan, will, at last, get over their petty jealousy of Palin, and support her: She´s been right all along, on just about every issue.

Like so many others here, I´d hoped to open the article and see Piggy Noonan with a split lip. Noonan eminently deserves the title, "Presstitute."

I liked her when she was Reagan´s speech writer, even bought her book. I liked her when Ross Perot was running and she said this: “The voters think Washington is a whorehouse and every four years they get a chance to elect a new piano player...They looked at Perot and saw a hand grenade with a bad haircut.” I don´t like her no more.

#6: I can relate to ROMNEY/PALIN 2016. What think you of CRUZ/COTTON 2016?

Peggy Noonan writes beautifully, almost poetically. I often wish she would think as clearly and as she writes, because much of the content she writes is drivel.

Sarah Palin can also write well, and she pulls no punches when she speaks. Not since Reagan have I seen someone who can express a concept so concisely that it is easy to remember for days afterwards.

I can see why many find it annoying that Palin is nearly always correct in what she says...almost as if it isn´t fair that someone could be as talented and educated and beautiful as she is and STILL be nearly always right.

If I ever get a chance, I will vote for Palin in whatever office she is seeking. She would think clearly and work hard.

Romney had his chance and blew it. I want someone conservative and Romney isn´t it. The same argument..Romneycare can be used against him..he is flawed merchandise and a RINO to boot. He has no fight.

I find the needless attacks on Noonan and others adolescent and boring. So what if she is imperfect? I dare say none, not one, of her critics are either. This "I have ALWAYS been right" is BS, but even if you were *right* before some one else. Big deal. Graciousness and kindness are still more important virtues. Self-righteousness isn´t a virtue at all. Do you want people to think well enough of you to join you? think about how you treat people.

What I find so refreshing about Sarah Palin is that she personifies common sense. Very logical motives behind everything that she does. Maybe not all people understand them at the time they are done but look back on her history and see if she wasn´t ahead of the curve.

Nooney Tunes (I HAD to steal that) tries soooo hard to be clever - not unlike the liberals. Given her declining sensibilities, she is no match for Sarah and best avoid any interaction with here as she would be eviscerated.

Peggy has attacked Palin relentlessly over the years. A few years ago she searched her Rodale´s to find the most juvenile, petty, jealous putdown she could find: nincompoop. Wow, Peggy, that was so kind and gracious of you to call Palin such a third-grade juvenile name! Wait, my son in third grade is more kind than that.

The reason for that particular name was ostensibly because Palin had talked about Reagan being dismissed and mocked by the press as unintelligent, etc. and Peggy took it as Palin mocking Reagan, which means either Noonan is incredibly obtuse or simply despises other people for no good reason.

Like others on this thread, I used to love and admire Noonan. I have her books, starting with What I Saw at the Revolution. Her poetic writing after 9/11 was very poignant. She is Catholic which struck a chord with me.

Then, she showed her true face. She was caught on a hot mic on tv mocking Palin. She´s mocked and belittled her in her columns and called her juvenile names.

Sarah has been VERY gracious to these lowbrow critics. As another stated, the content of Noonan´s columns is mostly self-aggrandizing drivel. I could not believe how the bullies descended upon Palin en masse from our own party.

One reader comment from below the article:
"Sorry fella, but Palin was totally unprepared for the national stage. Her inability to grasp the information she needed to know for debates was really sad. No one should advance to the position of VP or President who has no knowledge of how the world works outside Wasilla. One cannot change what one does not understand."

To that I would reply that no one having no flippin´ idea of how the world works INSIDE of places like Wasilla should advance to ANY national office. One cannot represent or lead what one does not understand.

I´ll bet that Sarah´s personal, private opinion of McCain is as spot on as her take on Noonan.

But supporting a running mate in public is just what a moral, loyal and classy person does.

Cliven Bundy marched into my life one Friday morning in January 1992 in a protest bound for a federal courthouse in Las Vegas. He held up one side of a street-width banner that asked, “Has the West been won or has the fight just begun?” To my great relief, just as Bundy promised, nearly 200 ranchers from all over the state marched behind him, yelling “Property rights!” Nearly a mile later, the marchers fell silent and filed into the courtroom where Wayne Hage of Pine Creek Ranch faced arraignment for the felony of cleaning brush out of his ditches without a

The Republican challenger to Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., thinks nobody should spend 47 years in Washington. Dr. Milton Wolf, a diagnostic radiologist from the Kansas City area, on Wednesday released a television ad criticizing Roberts for his nearly five decades in the nation´s capital. "After 47 years in Washington, Kansas is a distant memory for Pat Roberts," the ad opens, before pivoting to Wolf´s daily routine as a Kansas doctor. The ad goes on to mention Wolf´s plan to "repeal and replace Obamacare," "fight wasteful spending" and pass congressional term limits. After his tenure, Wolf´s ad promises, he´ll return home to Kansas.

I love that picture from the Bundy Ranch. You know the one that I’m talking about: I’m talking about all of them. I love the horn-handed Cowboys, with real, honest trail dirt on them; I love the American flags; I love the sagebrush; and I love the rebellion-- as in civil, non-violent disobedience. And the question now is, where does this go? Rebellion typically starts after a period of lassitude and hopelessness in the face of overwhelming power. Populations spend years, even decades muttering under their breath about abuses of power, but feel ineffectual to enact real reform. Then one bright day, a fruit stand

In the movie Ben-Hur, Charlton Heston was wrongly accused by government and sentenced to life in prison/slavery. Soldiers marched chained Heston along with other prisoners through the desert without food or water. Heston collapsed, unable to take another step. Jesus was passing by with a small caravan. He walked over and gave Heston a drink of water, which gave Heston the strength to continue. Note: Heston´s unfair ordeal was not over. He would endure much before his release and ultimate victory at the end of the movie. I view the Obama administration’s BLM retreat from bullying rancher Cliven Bundy and the patriots

There is a culture of sleaze in Washington that´s worse than ever. Too-big, all-powerful government not only cripples the freedoms of the regular people who have to live under it, it also creates a whole shadow infrastructure dedicated to working it to the advantage of the elite and the connected.

Two of Nevada’s top elected leaders are riding to the rescue of a rancher whose decades-long range war with the federal government has reached a boiling point in recent days. The federal Bureau of Land Management has surrounded the Clark County ranch of Cliven Bundy with armed officers, helicopters and four-wheel drive vehicles. Last week, they began seizing cattle found grazing on adjacent federal lands in violation of a law meant to protect an endangered desert tortoise. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
