Peggy Noonan: Palin choice is "Political Bullsh-t"

Interesting to listen to the MSNBC political analyst Chuck Todd in the background, joining in the "chit chat", after acting neutral a few moments before.

Conservative commentators Peggy Noonan and Mike Murphy, not realizing the microphone was still on:


Noonan tries to explain. She wanted a more experienced woman; she doesn't like the focus on narrative. (This seems to imply that narrative and qualification are mutually exclusive; it seems to imply that Palin is only about narrative, and I don't think that's fair, although I acknowledge her narrative is a strong selling point as well. But the accusation ignores what she has already accomplished in Alaska.)

Peggy Noonan, My husband and I have previously read and enjoyed your columns. Your true colors have just come out and you've blown it big time. How hypocritical. I will no longer read your column.
