The Wall Street cipher
and Mr. Alan Greenspan.
Hard to decide which was funnier today: Rudy Giuliani using the phrase "ethical obligation" and not vanishing is a flash of divine equilibrium restoration, or Mary Matalin over on "This Week..." trying to do her "Wingnut Ida.Lowry-from-'Brazil'" schtick
while half in the bag.
Peggy Noonan graced America with another round of tea leaf reading. Or, rather, divination via whatever muddy trace of backwash remains
at the bottom of her highball glass --
NOONAN: Thank you very much, healthcare is not going to work, it's going to haunt [President Obama] over at least the next two years, certainly in the coming year for the 10 reasons people like us always recite on talk shows.-- before reeling around and firing her Official Roger Ailes Talking Points randomly in the direction of media criticism:
NOONAN: But I think you can say in fairness that the New York based media, which has certain political predilections or sympathies is pounding this guy everyday in a way, deserved or not, in a way that they did not apply to IRS, the Benghazi, this one, that one. It's true. That was not frontpage every day.I have not yet every bit of the Mouse Circus in its entirety, but may still put it on the Betamax and let it wash over me in all its glory later, doing shots every time one of our nation's Great Thinkers harks up a "Both Sider" owl pellet.
If so, I'll see you all on the far side of a hangover the size the Devil's Tower.
