Sarah Palin Still Hasn’t Forgiven Peggy Noonan

Nobody holds (or exploits) a grudge like Sarah Palin. Just ask Peggy Noonan.

Noonan, you might recall, couldn’t hide her displeasure with Palin back during the 2008 campaign. The former Reagan speechwriter was caught on an open mic disparaging John McCain’s selection of the former Alaska governor as “bullshit.”

When the campaign ended and she was free to air her grievances in public, Noonan wrote a devastating column in which she described Palin’s vice presidential candidacy as “horrifying.”

Palin still hasn’t gotten over any of that, as she made clear in a Facebook post on Friday.

“Great article, Peggy, but where the heck were you when I and other commonsense conservatives were sounding the warning bell in ’08?” Palin wrote, referring to Noonan’s latest column.

“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…”

Can Noonan see Russia from the doghouse?
