Couldn't happen to a more deserving little sweetie...

Swamp_Yankee writes Peggy Noonan, The Crazy Cat Lady, Gets the Sarah Palin Treatment at Harvard...

This autumn, Peggy Noonan left her New York City digs for Cambridge to be a guest lecturer at Harvard. I'm leery of self-anointed, East Coast, Republican elites, but my distaste for Noonan reached new levels when she decided to act like a teenage girl in a Miley Cyrus movie and hurled such petty insults at Sarah Palin that her invective had to be personal. These insults came from the same woman who wrote a book called 'Patriotic Grace' and made it a point to be gracious to some of the most loathsome liberals.

The sophisticated and cosmopolitan Noonan may have thought she'd be comfortable at Harvard. Although she may believe in some different principles, she was amongst the educated elite, her people. Instead, she is turning into a campus joke. The word on campus is that she is an airhead who can't put a cohesive and cogent lecture together....


...It was only a short while ago when Noonan wrote that Palin "doesn't read" and that Palin is a "ponder-free zone" who "wasn't thoughtful enough to know she wasn't thoughtful enough". Noonan cast Palin off with a resounding good riddance. But the verdict from the intellectual elite at Harvard is in and they decree that Peggy Noonan is also a "ponder free zone". Now, it is Noonan who is being mocked for being an incoherent airhead and an intellectual lightweight. The beautiful irony.

I bet Peggy had mushy romantical notions of the free exchange of ideas among opponents who respect truth and candor! Ha ha. I could have told her that wasn't going to fly. I've been waiting through eight years of blogging for an principled truth-seeking liberal opponent to appear.
