"Deep down journalists think she's a political Rasputin who will not be dispatched. Prince Yusupov served him cupcakes laced with cyanide, emptied a revolver, clubbed him, tied him up and threw him in a frozen river. When he floated to the surface they found he'd tried to claw his way from under the ice. That is how reporters see Hillary.

And that is a grim and over-the-top analogy, which I must withdraw. What I really mean is they see her as the Glenn Close character in "Fatal Attraction": "I won't be ignored, Dan!"

Eek--Am I agreeing with Peggy Noonan? Or should I be paranoid and just think that she's trying to get us to vote for Obama cause she knows the Repubs think they....oh who cares?

I've been to the basement of the Yussupov Palace on the Moika in St. Petersburg. There's also a theatre in that palace and Pavlova peformed there.

lildogs--that's exactly what's been creeping me out, yet you get angry at me for saying it: the nastiness of the Hillary hatred on the left mirrors the nastiness of the Hillary hatred on the right.

I don't trust that.

But see, I trust my own mind, even if it is occasionally in sync with someone with whom I'd normally disagree.

No--I get angry at you for telling ME why I feel a certain way and that it is somehow manipulated by some media/cultural/voodoo influence.

And thinking Obama has not only more momentum and is a better candidate than Hillary does not equal HATRED of Hillary. We JUST DON'T LIKE HER.

I don't like Jessica Lange either...but that doesn't make her a bad actress (automatically).

OK I'm probably the world's biggest Obama supporter but don't agree with her assesment that Hillary is losing "this thing". In fact, after sweeping the Potomac primaries, Obama bumps up against the all-likely resurgent Clinton Machinery in Texas and Ohio in early March which will present his ultimate litmus test.

How any professional media person or policy wonk could stake his or her reputation on such a careless prognostication is beyond me. But then again, this is typical of La Noonan.

That Peggy Noonan column. It's poorly written. Almost unreadable. Well, unreadable, actually. For me. I couldn't read it. I had to stop. Her style really bugged me. I couldn't read it. Remember when she could write? She could write. Back when. But not now. Not at all. And her point? I lost it.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

She could write. Back when she kissed me.

Maybe kissing me. Sapped the all the lifeforce out of her.

PJ, that would have been a great "Tales From The Darkside" episode. I'm sure Margaret O'Brien or Connie Stevens would have jumped at the chance to play Peggy Noonan.
