Peggy Noonan's column today is terrific

I don't use that adjective lightly.

This is the great political failure of progressivism: They always go too far. They always try to rub your face in it. . . . 

Washington sees the disaffection. They read the polls, they know.

They call it rage. But it feels more like grief. Like the loss of something you never thought you'd lose, your sense of your country and your place in it, your rights in it.

Yes, they call it "disaffection" and deep down they believe the public will get over it and come to unconditionally love them. After all, they are politicians and the only reality they recognize is re-election.

But for a growing majority of the public, it's not disaffection, it rage. And that's a lot harder to get over.

Michael Greenspan

I'll try it because you recommend it, but I stopped trusting Noonan in 2000, when she praised "the brilliant young men and women of Comedy Central" who'd spent months -- years? -- savaging Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp. Then she endorsed Obama . . .


Wake when progressivism has a great political failure. FDR’s agencies are still here. Johnson’s agencies are still here. Even Carter’s agencies are still here. The IRS is still here. Should I start listing all the progressive politices that are still here? Where’s this failure again?
