SHUT UP AL­READY

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Is it ca­coph­ony or just vig­or­ous po­lit­i­cal dis­course? A new Wall Street Jour­nal/NBC News poll asked Amer­i­cans to con­sider a woe­fully short list of six pub­lic fig­ures, then re­veal who they “most want to be quiet.”

Sarah Palin led the ram­bunc­tious ros­ter, cited by 52 per­cent of the re­spon­dents, fol­lowed by Jesse Jack­son (51 per­cent), Dick Cheney (45 per­cent), Newt Gin­grich (43 per­cent), Al Gore (40 per­cent) and Bill Clin­ton (32 per­cent). A more for­giv­ing 12 per­cent, how­ever, said the talkers in ques­tion should just keep talk­ing.
