tell us how you really feel (republican pundits on palin: "it's over")

Peggy Noonan and other conservatives were caught on tape with their real feelings on John McCain's VP pick:

Wall Street Journal columnist and former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan and former John McCain adviser, Time columnist, and MSNBC contributor Mike Murphy were caught on tape disparaging John McCain's selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential running mate.

"It's over," Noonan said.

Noonan went on to respond to a question about whether or not Sarah Palin was the most qualified woman that McCain could have put on the ticket:
"The most qualified? No. I think they went for this, excuse me, political bullshit about narratives. Every time the Republicans do that, because that's not where they live and that's not what they're good at, they blow it."
Wow, tell us how you really feel, Peggy. Perhaps more Republicans are pretending for the cameras, but behind closed doors are disappointed with the Palin pick. Maybe Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison is in agreement with Noonan, which would explain her faint praise.
