I Wonder How Many Of Petaliters Of Grey Goose

It took for Peggy Noonan to "forget": --
It is hard, if you've got a head and a heart, to come down against a strong U.S. response to Syria's use of chemical weapons against its civilian population. This is especially so if you believe that humanity stands at a door that leads only to darkness. Those who say, "But Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons—the taboo was broken long ago," are missing the point. When Saddam used gas against the Kurds it was not immediately known to all the world. It was not common knowledge. The world rued it in retrospect...
-- that while "all the world" may not have known that Saddam Hussein had used chemical weapons, her greatest hero and former employer Ronald Reagan

sure as shit did.

Knew about it, sold him the chemicals to make them and then drew him a big, black "X" on the fucking map.

And all the world knows about that now, just as all the world knows about La Noonan's foolproof method for coping with scary facts that she does not wish to see:

Just walk on by.

Just pick up your check from The Wall Street Journal...

And ABC's This Week...

And NBC's Meet The Press...

...and walk right on by.

Shut up already. Seriously. Every time you post it sucks the IQ out of the whole fucking site. We get it, you hate DG for daring to question your Awesome Dudebro-ness. Nobody fucking cares about your Markuzian mad-on for DG but you.

If you're so, SO mad about everything DG does because he won't see the Holy Light of the Jesus of the Dudebros, then leave. "Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!"

Unfortunately, the usually quite good Ed Brayton at Freethoughtblogs falls into this category.

Fun fact: "Noonan" spelled backwards is eerily similar to Mork's greeting from "Mork and Mindy".

Noonan-Noonan, Mr. Glass.
