I always enjoy reading Wonkette's Jim Newell wax absurd on the subject of Peggy Noonan. Credit where it's due here to the Nooners, who has the stones to do what so many conservatives cannot: state publicly that Sarah Palin is not and never will be fit for higher office.
UPDATE: There's a couple parts of Noonan's column I wanted to highlight, as she rebuts the reactions some conservatives have had to Palin's resignation (emphasis added by me in second paragraph):
"The elites hate her." The elites made her. It was the elites of the party, the McCain campaign and the conservative media that picked her and pushed her. The base barely knew who she was. It was the elites, from party operatives to public intellectuals, who advanced her and attacked those who said she lacked heft. She is a complete elite confection. She might as well have been a bonbon. ...
"Now she can prepare herself for higher office by studying up, reading in, boning up on the issues." Mrs. Palin's supporters have been ordering her to spend the next two years reflecting and pondering. But she is a ponder-free zone. She can memorize the names of the presidents of Pakistan, but she is not going to be able to know how to think about Pakistan. Why do her supporters not see this?
This is good stuff. I think there's a hostage crisis unfolding in Peggy Noonan's head right now. Her intellect has broken free from its captors -- her psychological and political orientation -- and made a desperate escape attempt. I fear it will be recaptured before too long, unfortunately, and brutally punished for its disobedience.
