The awesome open mike discussion of Palin in which we find what Murphy and Noonan really think


Chuck Todd: Mike Murphy, lots of free advice, we'll see if Steve Schmidt and the boys were watching. We'll find out on your blackberry. Tonight voters will get their chance to hear from Sarah Palin and she will get the chance to show voters she's the right woman for the job Up next, one man who's already convinced and he'll us why Gov. Jon Huntsman.

(cut away)

Peggy Noonan: Yeah.

Mike Murphy: You know, because I come out of the blue swing state governor world: Engler, Whitman, Tommy Thompson, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush. I mean, these guys -- this is how you win a Texas race, just run it up. And it's not gonna work. And --

PN: It's over.

MM: Still McCain can give a version of the Lieberman speech to do himself some good.

CT: I also think the Palin pick is insulting to Kay Bailey Hutchinson, too.

PN: Saw Kay this morning.

CT: Yeah, she's never looked comfortable about this --

MM: They're all bummed out.

CT: Yeah, I mean is she really the most qualified woman they could have turned to?

PN: The most qualified? No! I think they went for this -- excuse me-- political bullshit about narratives --

CT: Yeah they went to a narrative.

MM: I totally agree.

PN: Every time the Republicans do that, because that's not where they live and it's not what they're good at, they blow it.

MM: You know what's really the worst thing about it? The greatness of McCain is no cynicism, and this is cynical.

CT: This is cynical, and as you called it, gimmicky.

MM: Yeah.

commentary from Yglesias

No doubt Peggy Noonan and Mike Murphy are just further examples of the liberal sexist snob smear machine:

Now it’s not especially remarkable that both Noonan and Murphy seem to have private views on this matter that are considerably less GOP friendly than the ones they’re comfortable expressing in public, but it is remarkable that that fact isn’t remarkable. In a sane world, one wouldn’t put talking heads on TV to express their opinions unless they were going to express their genuine opinions.

Republican operatives are invited to pretend to be journalists on TV. Of course they remain Republican operatives, but they are needed to ballance journalists given the blatant liberal bias of the facts.
