  •  Republicans these days, and particularly tea party (5+ / 0-)

    groups, are so self-righteous and convinced of the rightness of their cause they have a need - a NEED - to see themselves as martyrs - persecuted for acting on behalf of virtuous morality.  Noonan is feeding that need for her own reasons (to be seen by the martyrs as a crusader for the Republican cause?), just as other, senior  Republicans are feeding that need.  But the senior Republicans have holding onto power at all costs as their cause, even at the cost of their own integrity, as long as their moneyed interests are kept satisfied.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
