I once heard a commentator remark that when Peggy Noonan is on her game, her words are worthy of being chiseled in marble. Today is one of those days.
"A Nation That Believes Nothing" sums up the weariness of the American citizenry, the voters' disappointment with the presidential race's lack of focus on critical issues, and the immediate dangers in our path--specifically, the ripple effect of the California fiscal crisis.
I don't know how many Americans Peggy Noonan is speaking for today, but I'm sure the number is impressive. And I am certainly one of them.
