What would a Sunday be without Peggy Noonan around to impart some of her infinite wisdom to the masses on these bobble head shows? Here she is on Meet the Press pretending that Mittens lying like a rug about his tax plan not favoring the rich because he's going to close some mysterious tax loopholes to be named later is something new.

GREGORY: Peggy, I thought it was pointed when he said reelection of President Obama means chronic high unemployment. And yet, there-- there is all the evidence of the underpinnings of this economy being very strong. Is that a credible case he’s making?

NOONAN: Well, you had brought up the point about the underpinnings being strong. I think there is a general Republican point of view that if Mister Obama is reelected, nothing will move forward in Washington, a sort of cold, blanket, heavy on the economy will probably continue. No progress will be made. Taxes on corporations won’t be lowe-- lowered, so we won’t be more competitive. So, I think, that’s what he was referring to. However, I must add that there was a little news there in what Governor Romney said about, well, frankly, at the higher end for more well-off taxpayers. They’re going to lose some of the things they were relying on, like certain loopholes. I thought he might be talking about limits on the mortgage interest rate deduction. He was not clear about it. But it seems to me he was saying, look, we’re trying to be fair here, we’re trying to make it all work. But the-- but-- but don’t demagogue me on the rich get away with everything.

Yeah, how dare anyone "demagogue" poor old Mitt by telling the truth about his business practices, or his offshore tax havens and making people think he might not be a nice guy. The nerve of them!
