Jon Stewart Slams ‘Journalist’ Hack Peggy Noonan Over Obama Criticism (Video)

On Wednesday’s episode of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart destroyed Reagan-worshiping wannabe journalist Peggy Noonan for her hyperbolic criticism of President Obama over the alleged IRS scandal.  Noonan parroted over-the-top Right Wing talking points on a recent Meet the Press appearance, claiming that the IRS’s supposed targeting of Tea Party groups is something so bad she’s never seen it in her lifetime.   Stewart responded,

Now think hard Peggy Noonan–never in your lifetime have you seen a scandal this bad?  What if a president secretly sold weapons to Iran in return for American hostages and then used the proceeds to illegally fund a bunch of coked-out jungle rapists in Nicaragua?  Ring a bell?  Here’s a hint: You worked in his White House as a high-profile speech writer.

Noonan bizarrely alleged that Ronald Reagan’s involvement in the Iran-Contra Affair was simply “bad luck.”  To this Stewart quipped, “Reagan was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Specifically, the White House during his own administration.”

Americans Against The Tea Party is a group committed to exposing the Tea Party’s lies, violence, racism, ignorance, intolerance, bigotry, and corporatist fascist efforts to subvert our democratic process – and we are organizing to defeat Tea Party/GOP candidates on ballots everywhere.

    Noonan makes my skin crawl.

    It looked like a clip from a silent movie. But even De Mille would have booted her off the set. What she said was repugnant enough. But her rubberized facial stretch expressions made her look even phonier. How could Gregory and the rest of the chatters keep straight faces? Another creature from the Black Balloon still circling, while trying to find a landing strip.

    It is funny how history repeats itself. My former mother-in-law was a Peggy Noonan, too. She was as seriously goofy as her child. Neither is living today, but the coincidence is scary.

    Dear AATTP writers and editors: would you PLEASE stop using hyperbolic words such as “destroyed” when a simple “criticized strongly” will do? Let’s leave it those on the Right to constantly try to redefine words. The ones we have work just fine.
    The constant use of overly strong words dilutes your message by normally guaranteeing that I, and others like me, won’t bother to read beyond the offending word. If the best the writer can do is to greatly exaggerate, he or she is seen is incapable of intelligently making a point.

      How about, “Jon Stewart Strongly Criticizes Misguided, But Well-Intentioned We’re Sure, Journalist Peggy Noonan”

      Sorry, just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

        No, but “Jon Stewart Strongly Criticizes Misguided Pseudo-Journalist Peggy Noonan ” does.

          Duly noted.

            This comment stream just made me really appreciate AATP. Thanks.

      Did you find Noonan’s hyperbolic antics with the facial contortions and over the top reaction to something that even if it was true, which it is not, would not come close to the behavior of her boss, “Saint Ronnie, of San Clemente”, Michael?

    • Bob Cull

      left out asking if you found her at all objectionable.

    Every time I hear Peggy Noonan speak in that genteel “librarian” voice of hers I want to hurl. I’m sure she could walk up to you, whisper hello, and stick a 7 inch shiv between your 4th and 5th ribs without flinching. (I wonder if there’s a blue dress somewhere among her souvenirs of her White House days with Ronnie.)

    • AATTP

      Agreed on all fronts!

    Great clip, thanks for the share.

    It is truly amazing that Teapublican morons haven’t realized that videotape proves what hypocrites they are. I hope somebody saves these little tidbits for the mid-term elections.

    Just more evidence of the right’s inability to see any faults in their own. I could not have kept myself from putting her in her place had I been seated at that table. I have never seen a more disgusting display as her face making. How dare she?! she worked for that POS and she has the nerve to make faces and lie about the President, a real one not just a B movie actor who only played one in real life. She needs to be taken out to the wood shed and get a taste of a hickory switch.

      You’ve said it all, and quite well too, Bob.
