You're Peggy Noonan and you're jealous. But it's not the normal kind of jealous, the kind reserved for girlfriends who can squeeze into size 2 jeans. No, it's the kind of jealous that hurts, that grabs your gut and twists, that has you howling with rage into your pillow in the middle of the night, screaming "It's not fair" like a two-year-old denied another piece of cake. It is Sarah Palin jealous...and it is consuming you.
Oh, and it gets better. So, deliciously better. Do read the whole thing.

I get the message, Peggy. You wrote speeches for ReaganTM and so therefore you think your opinion on matters of politics matters more than, say, mine. Good for you.
But remember - when it came to the 2008 election, I was right (and I wasn't alone by a long shot) and you were flat, busted wrong.
So given the Epic Fail! your guy has subjected us all to perhaps you might want to consider dialing-back a bit on the smugness, mm-kay?
To cleanse the pallate, may I suggest a boner-worthy takedown of Peggy's latest bout with serial condescension courtesy of Doctor Zero.

In the name of all that is good and holy, Gov. Sanford...
How did that out for the GOP in Minnesota last year?

Mr. Post-Partisan. Right?
Mr. Bring-All-Sides-Together. Right?
The Light-Worker. Right?
Great fucking job, idiots. Feel free to continue to sell us all down the river - it's not like it even matters anymore. You sold us this Unicorn Shit Sandwich, and now we're all gonna chow down.

Let us face it - any time the Zero needs a so-called Republican to sandbag any hope the party may have to stop some of the moronic and destructive aspects of his agenda, the dimmer of the two Maine dingbats will only be too happy to pitch in.
Yes, she can.
Seriously, would there be any difference - any functional difference at all - if an actual Democrat held that seat?

Sarah Palin has begun to get on the nerves of Republican senators who say the former GOP vice presidential nominee is taking her own White House aspirations entirely too seriously.
Actually, I think it's because she's manning-up and showing leadership in the face of the Failure of Obamanation while the Beltway GOP is cowering at the rumpside of The Won, but whatever.
But those same senators may have their eye on a 2012 White House run or be friends with senators with presidential ambitions. And Palin, who does not have a lot of Washington connections, energized the party’s grass roots in 2008 while bucking the D.C. establishment, leaving much of the party’s elite grumbling about her appeal to the conservative base.
In other words, Republicam Senators - quick to demonstrate just how ludicrously irrelevant they are - have already picked their fave and Saracuda ain't it.
Color me unsurprised.

Today's idiot Republican - Sen. Jeff Sessions.
The top Republican involved in the confirmation hearings for President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee says he would prefer his colleagues refrain from calling Sonia Sotomayor a racist.
Sen. Jeff Sessions said Sunday that he would prefer fellow Republicans stop attacking Sotomayor over remarks about her background as a daughter of Puerto Rican parents. Sotomayor in 2001 said her experiences affected her decisions on the bench.
Yeah, that's brilliant strategy when trying to keep someone with rather obvious racist tendencies off the bench - to stop calling them racists.
The Senate Republicans are dead to me.

But that doesn't change the fact that I'm neither female nor of Scottish ancestry - and that Colin Powell really isn't any more of a Republican than was Arlen Specter.

There's really no good single point to excerpt - it's really best to read the whole thing.

... I'm with the former Vice President on this one.
We already have one (ultra-)left party in the United States - it's called the Democrats. If being more like them were the key to electoral success methinks the Massachusetts GOP wouldn't currently be outnumbered in the MA legislature by something like 9-1 (seriously, Google it).
I thank you for your past service to the country, Mr. Powell. Now I thank you to STFU.

You now have, basically, the entire Democrat Party congressional leadership caught in The Big LieTM. Do. Something.
Just about anything would be helpful at this point - and yes, just get past the fact that the MSM is too busy looking for shiny objects to distract the sheeple to care about this. Do. Something.

You know, the one that rewarded hard work, that had a moral center, that believed in its own exceptionalism, that believed itself to be - on balance, in spite of its faults - good.
That America. "Old" America.
It's this "new" America that I have problems with.

Sadly, this is the Republicans we're talking about - and there's neither a brain nor a functioning set of gonads among them.
So expect "reform" - read, total government take-over - of the once-finest healthcare delivery system in the world to get rammed down our throats without so much as a peep of protest.
BTW, you think healthcare is expensive and hard to get now? Just wait until it's brought to you by the same people who bring us the smooth Austrian precision and efficiency of the Department of Motor Vehicles.

... Meghan McCain will be one big, fat, stupid reason.
Meghan? Sweetie? Your 15-minutes ended when Daddy McMaverick's worst-in-a-century presidential campaign ended. There is therefore no need to continue to share your middle-school-level intellect and political acumen with the world.

Conservative Pat Toomey, a former Lehigh Valley congressman, this morning announced he is running for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in the 2010 election.
Godspeed, Mr. Toomey.
March 19, 2009
You're already 99.99% of the way there.
But if you're not going to do the right and honorable thing, could you at least shut your pie-hole over your man-love for Dear Leader?

Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley suggested that AIG executives should take a Japanese approach toward accepting responsibility for the collapse of the insurance giant by resigning or killing themselves.
Uh, here's a hint, Chuckles - you should have stopped at "resigning". Much as I'm really not feeling sympathetic to any of the multitude of assorted scum responsible for this nightmare, suggesting mass seppuku is probably not where we need to be going right now.
I would, however, stretch my credulity a bit make an exception should certain liberals and members of Congress wish to to, well, lead by example on this score.

With Pat Toomey suddenly looking for a rematch in a Republican primary and the RNC threatening to insert itself into the race, Specter may find the pastures greener on the other side of the partisan fence...
Well, yeah. I suspect Toomey will clean Arlen's clock in the closed Republican PA primary 15-months hence. It's not as if Specter has been doing the "mending fences" bit with the GOP - tossing national Republican under the Spendulus bus was, well, expected.
As for this congress?
Switching parties now will almost certainly eliminate any chance of holding a filibuster for Mitch McConnell, but it may be difficult to tell the difference at this point.
Indeed - really all this would change is the expectation that McConnell should actually be able to keep this herd of cats in line - an expectation that, truth be told, all evidence indicates is rather grossly exaggerated.
