Who says that Daily Kos is “too serious and lefty”?

This was added to a Peggy Noonan “abbreviated pundit post” about Obama’s upcoming inaugural address on Jan 20, 2009:

I hope he uses phrases like “veriest varlet that ever chewed with a tooth” and “thou art a boil, a plague-sore, an embossed carbuncle long-tongu’d babbling gossip” or even “false of heart, light of ear, bloody of hand” like Shakespeare did. Now those were the classics [and Cavett adds a few more]. And maybe if he speaks English, people won’t be so deferential the way they were to His Juniorness. Which I only care about because Obama is a Democrat. But I digress. Let me return to setting unrealistic high expectations for Obama.

Reads like funny and ironic to me!
