Peggy Noonan's fantasy land

Outside the Tent catches the ridiculous Peggy Noonan telling fairy tales to her WSJ readers again:


As I wrote in this space two years ago, the invasion of Iraq will likely give rise to a surge of democratic feeling that will inspire the entire Mideast. This is known as making it clear to one’s fans and foes that you were on the right side of history.

It's also known as bragging. But so what? All who supported the Iraqi invasion took lumps for it; all who defended it in what seemed its dark days, and argued for its potential to transform the air of defeat that lingered over Arab politics, deserve the right to say, "I was right."


I'm sorry; I must have missed it--when did the Iraq war end in a U.S. victory? I mean, I haven't watched the news in a couple of hours, but you'd think I would have caught wind of that somehow.

I wonder if these people know yet?

MOSUL, Iraq Mar 10, 2005 — A suicide attacker set off a bomb that tore through a funeral tent jammed with Shiite mourners Thursday, splattering blood and body parts over rows of overturned white plastic chairs. The attack, which killed 47 and wounded more than 100, came as Shiite and Kurdish politicians in Baghdad said they overcame a major stumbling block to forming a new coalition government.


Outside the Tent suggests that Peggy may have missed this and other news:


Apparently Peggy’s daily dose of her xanax-laced Grey Goose martinis has kept her from reading this about today’s suicide blast in Mosul that killed at least 40 people, a number of drive-by assassinations, another car bomb blast in Baghdad aimed at Western contractors, and three other car bombings elsewhere in Iraq.


Peggy Noonan an alcoholic? It's possible. Something sure is taking a toll on her.
