A Peggy Noonan quote

“When national Democrats talk to the country they always seem to be talking to themselves. They are of the left, as is their constituency, which wins the popular vote in presidential elections; the mainstream media through which they send their messages is of the left; the academics, historians and professionals they consult are of the left. They get in the habit of talking to themselves, in their language, in a single, looped conversation. They have no idea how they sound to the non-left, so they have no idea when they are damaging themselves.”

I remember saying something similar, repeatedly, on the SH. 

I’ve long believed that the unitary left media echo chamber is ultimately harmful to the left.

I just like Noonan’s formulation better.
