Martini Drunk Peggy Noonan: GOP has been oppressive, crazy and stupid for 10 years now. Um, why did she support them again?
Here is another article by my favorite Republican Martini drunk Peggy Noonan about how the Republican party she supported and predicted would defeat Obama (she was high at the time) has been oppressive, crazy and stupid for at least a decade, but she still supports them. It’s a drunk’s logic….
I will cut to the chance and skip most of her drunken ramblings for the last paragraphs.
A final note, connected to an earlier point.
Republicans are now in the habit of editing their views, and they’ve been in it for 10 years. The Bush White House suppressed dissent; talk radio stars functioned as enforcers; the angrier parts of the base, on the Internet, attempted to silence critical thinkers. Orthodoxy was everything, or orthodoxy as some defined it.
This isn’t loyalty, it’s lockstep. It has harmed the party’s creativity, its ability to think, when now more than ever it has to. Enough.
