I used to be more of a political news junkie than I am now, and I am a big Peggy Noonan fan–both for her insights and what I’ve read of her approach to public speaking, even if she is a committed devotee of the guy in the pointy hat. Not everyone in this blog’s usual audience will be interested in reading this (and I certainly don’t want to turn this website into yet another political blog), but those who keep a closer eye than most on politics and are familiar with some of its names might be. In her article posted online in the Wall Street Journal’s OpinionJournal website last Friday (Oct. 12), Peggy Noonan really takes Republican operative Dan Bartlett to the woodshed. And her conjecture concerning the odd behavior of the Republican party these days is worth a read, as well.
