There were so many annoying and utterly ridiculous things that came out of Peggy Noonan's mouth during her appearance on Meet the Press, it was hard to decide which ones to post, since there were so many to choose from. Here she is taking a not-so-veiled shot at Elana Kagan.

NOONAN: It is amazing to me that we are, what, nine years into-- into these wars?

NOONAN: Oh my goodness. And we are not talking about it every day.

KEARNS GOODWIN: Right.

NOONAN: On the streets and in the cafe--(CROSSTALK)--and over coffee. It is amazing. It's just accepted as a fact that one doesn't comment on.

NOONAN: So then we better get-- (CROSSTALK)--ROTC back to Harvard.

KEARNS GOODWIN: Right.

BROKAW: Well, I-- I don't think that will make the difference, with all due respect, 'cause they have a choice of whether or not they wanna join ROTC. They don't have to. It's not--

BROKAW: --mandatory.

NOONAN: Of course.
