I concede I have not always been kind to her in the past, but I think she is on to something here. Maybe not that original, but I think it's significant that even she is talking this way now. I think she's right. For instance, I'm worried about the coming inflation. The only to avoid it that I can see is to begin some serious fiscal discipline right now. But we are so not going to do that. In fact, we are poised on the biggest explosion of debt in US probably world history. Yet our young President and his minions are just carrying right on, as if everything will be OK or it's not their problem whether it is or not. Noonan's characterization of them as "callous children" is extremely, insightfully apt. I guess if you try to be dazzlingly apt as often as she does, ever so often you are.
ALSO read this -- a cynical and probably accurate view of what Senator Reid of the Silver State is up to. In a way, the insurance companies deserve to rolled by the Democrats for being stupid enough not to realize they would be rolled by the Democrats. But the rest of us will have to pay for it.
