I saw in the Wall Street Journal this morning that Peggy Noonan essentially says good riddance to Sarah Palin, claiming she was harmful to Republicans.
Peggy Noonan wrote some pretty good speeches for President Ronald Reagan and has claimed to be a conservative. However, she supported and presumably voted for Barack Obama in the last election. What the heck was she thinking?
Ms. Noonan claims that Sarah Palin is not a deep thinker, doesn't read much, and really is ignorant about world affairs. Does she have a valid point? Perhaps. I like Sarah Palin personally, but I don't think of her as a deep thinker. She does, however, have a rare commodity these days - common sense.
I used to see Peggy Noonan on TV back when she was writing speeches for President Reagan. I realize I don't know her, but I never liked her. She struck me as phony; a pseudointellectual trying to impress upon us, the commoners, how superior she was.
I think Noonan's support of Obama shows her true colors. As for me, I'll take good old common sense over intellectualism any day.
