Greenwald on Peggy Noonan

What a stupid and vapid woman this is, but respected and admired by our media class because she fits right in with them -- endlessly impressed by her own sophistication, maturity and insight while drooling out platitudes one never hears except in seventh-grade cafeterias and on our political talk shows. As always, this isn't worth noting because the adolescent stupidity on display here is unique to Noonan, but precisely because it isn't. This is how our national elections are decided: by people like her, spewing things like this.
Our political media really is a disgrace. For some reason they do not get that this shit matters. Elections are not popularity contests, but in fact decisions that means some people will live, some will die, our planet will overheat or we will at least attempt to save it, and on and on...
