Peggy Noonan on Sarah Palin

Peggy Noonan on Sarah Palin:

"there is little sign that she [Palin] has the tools, the equipment, the knowledge or the philosophical grounding one hopes for, and expects, in a holder of high office."

"it's unclear whether she [Palin] is Bushian or Reaganite. She doesn't think aloud. She just . . . says things."

"She [Palin] does not speak seriously but attempts to excite sensation—'palling around with terrorists.' If the Ayers case is a serious issue, treat it seriously."

"She [Palin] is not as thoughtful or persuasive as Joe the Plumber"

"This is not a leader [Palin], this is a follower, and she follows what she imagines is the [Republican] base"

"She [Palin] doesn't seem to understand the implications of her own thoughts."

"when you [Palin] play only to your little piece, you contribute to its fracturing."

"In the end the Palin candidacy is a symptom and expression of a new vulgarization in American politics. It's no good, not for conservatism and not for the country."

"yes, it [the Palin candidacy] is a mark against John McCain, against his judgment and idealism."

My god...I just read this again and Noonan's description of Sarah Palin reminds me of someone else we all know and love. Shocked

Mom was right! Shocked

What's the difference between Sarah Palin and a hockey mom?
