Rough Transcript after the Jump
It’s worth it just to hear Peggy Noonan’s potty-mouth, but that ain’t all.
Murphy: You know, because I come out of the blue swing state government work. Angler, Whitman, Thompson, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush. And these guys, this is all how you want to (inaudible) this race. You know, just run it up. And it’s not gonna work.
Noonan: It’s over.
Murphy: Still, McCain can give a version of the Lieberman speech to do himself some good.
Noonan: I saw Kay [Bailey Hutchison] this morning
Murphy: They’re all bummed out. I mean, is she really the most qualified woman they could have turned to?
Noonan: The most qualified? No. I think they went for this, excuse me, political bullshit about narratives and (inaudible) the picture.
Murphy: Yeah, but what’s the narrative?
Noonan: Every time the Republicans do that because that’s not where they live and it’s not what they’re good at and they blow it.

And I just gotta say, when Peggy Noonan has to serve as a voice of reason… Well, it’s the political equivalent of Courtney Love showing up at your intervention and suggesting you ease up on the pipe just little a bit.
