In the Wall Street Journal Thursday, Peggy Noonan laid into the State of the Union speech, calling it “a spectacle of delusion and self-congratulation in which a Congress nobody likes rose to cheer a president nobody likes.”
Noonan’s theme was “the growing distance between Washington and the public it dominates.” There’s no scoop there, at least to members of the Tea Party, and certainly not to Sarah Palin.
Great article, Peggy, but where the heck were you when I & other commonsense conservatives were sounding the warning http://t.co/tMdB2575Ft

Where was she? In 2008 she was enthralled by candidate Barack Obama, whose “victory would provide a fresh start in a nation in which a fresh start would come as a national relief.” In 2012, she said she was privately receiving thanks from conservatives for “her candid and unflattering assessment of the state of the Romney campaign.” Now, in 2014, she seems concerned about a federal government that is larger than ever and out of touch with ordinary citizens. In other words, welcome to the Tea Party.
Palin’s full Facebook post reads:
Great article, Peggy, but where the heck were you when I and other commonsense conservatives were sounding the warning bell in ’08? You joined the “cool kids” in mocking and condescendingly criticizing — ultimately demanding that we “sit down and shut up.” Better late than never, though, Peggy and your ilk, because, meanwhile back in America…
Peggy Noonan is learning what other precious pointy headed pundits/pols have — that few have a longer memory than Palin supporters.

Good for Sarah Palin (yeah, I said it) for calling out Peggy Noonan's totally bogus reversal on Obama from '08: http://t.co/bYt8anJAs8
