Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Why is Peggy Noonan on Television?

She was on This Week's panel on Sunday, having appeared on Face The Nation's panel a week earlier.

Why?

Isn't this the woman who felt that Mitt Romney would win, the day before the election? Isn't she the person who said that "President Obama is a loser, and America doesn't like losers"?

Even more than that, have you seen her whenever she gets introduced on one of the TV discussion forums? Upon hearing her name, she raises her head and sniffs, as though bearing the burden of being in the presence of inferiors. Then she proceeds to proffer the most inane opinions imaginable! I am very serious when I say that she reminds me for all the world of my aunt Freida, who would, when faced with a question more complex than how the weather was, take a deep breath, SOLEMNLY PONDER a moment, and then deliver the most platitudinous bullshit I have ever heard.

Noonan should be put into the same assisted-living home as David Brooks, Mark Halperin, Tom Friedman, Dana Milbank, Charlie Rose, Ross Douthat, Maureen Dowd, the entire cast of Politico and all the other hacks.

Okay, I realize this is the second thread my newb ass has started, so I'll be quiet now.

1. Why is anyone on TV?

The expectation that their performance will bring in ratings and a profit. No different for the people we like or those we dislike.

Keep your newb ass writing threads; I really enjoyed reading that. You have a way with words.

3. +1

Missed your first thread but you are right-on with this one.

Noonan wrote some speeches for Saint Ronnie 30 years ago and she has been pimping herself out on that ever since.

4. Because there are no consequences for being wrong in some circles...

...such as Sunday talking head shows, or for the people who produce those shows.

It must be nice to champion free markets while not having to actually depend on one for one's livelihood.

7. Noonan Is A Talent-Free Hack.....


...and I've criticized her numerous times, here. I kind of like her on the national stage, just because her intellect-free blathering is a continuing drag on what's left of the Reagan legacy......

10. And she used to be a Dem? I may be the only person who actually read her biography

She does have glimmers of lucidity. Didn't she trash Palin under her breath?

11. Which Republicans meet your exacting standards for a political commentator?

Or are you suggesting we follow the Fox News approach of only booking people their audience agrees with?
