Steve M. does his usual admirable job of deconstructing the idiocy of Peggy Noonan:
On her Wall Street Journal blog, Peggy Noonan says Fie on your silly polling averages! — she has a hunch Mitt Romney’s going to win the election:
I think he’s stealing in “like a thief with good tools,” in Walker Percy’s old words.
This are odd words to quote in reference to Mitt Romney, because when Walker Percy — a devout Catholic — use them in reference to his own writing, the thief he was referring to was God.
The thing to remember about Peggy Noonan, and many others like her, is that her idiotic opinions are force-fed to the public via television and the Wall Street Journal opinion page. People don’t like it when I say this, but broadcasting the rantings of Nooners isn’t that different from what goes on in North Korea.
