Is this mic on?

The political analysts on the cable networks are a lot more honest when they’re off the air. A couple of Republican commentators — Peggy Noonan and Mike Murphy — went off script when talking about the Palin pick, after concluding an appearance on MSNBC.

    If these commentators really don’t like the Palin pick, why don’t they say so? Why do they feel so pressured to back her up? Is it simply that it’s their role to play the “devil’s advocate”?

    I’m assuming here that they were in fact promoting the positives of Palin. I didn’t see the actual show.

    Peggy Noonan’s comments were VERY interesting.
