Sometimes, Peggy Noonan cracks me

Stay through to the end (video link), when she describes the typical Democrat politician's speech. Noonan, a former speechwriter for Reagan and Bush I (she coined "a thousand points of light") knows this ground as well as anyone. She has noticed - as The End Zone has noted 1, 2, 3 - Democrats and leftists are neither the happiest of warriors nor the happiest of human beings.

Which reminds of my thoughts as I watched the rapturous crowd worship Barack: everyone wants to believe in something. It is human nature. Much of the Investco crowd didn't believe in God, so they glommed onto believing in Barack instead. They want the promise of a human hero who will ease their existential pain. If Barack doesn't pan out, they will believe in someone else, and so on, and so on....

After watching Peggy Noonan's remarks, I have decided I'd vote for her for "Queen of the World!" She is Grrrrrreat!
