Peggy Noonan offers a biting critique of the hubris of Washington politicians in her weekly column in the Wall Street Journal. The title pretty much says it all: â€œConceit of Government: Why are our politicians so full of themselves?â€ One of the great things about this essay is that she is an equal opportunity criticizerâ€”that is, she directs her censure at both sides of the aisle. What she writes is harsh, but I think it is sorely needed. There seem to be less and less statesmen in Washington and more and more men who like to state their own virtue.

I aspire to write like Peggy Noonan…well said, Peggy!
