In her Wall Street Journal essay titled “Too Bad” and subtitled, “President Bush has torn the conservative coalition asunder”, Peggy Noonan wrote:

Why would they speak so insultingly, with such hostility, of opponents who are concerned citizens? And often, though not exclusively, concerned conservatives? It is odd, but it is of a piece with, or a variation on, the “Too bad” governing style. And it is one that has, day by day for at least the past three years, been tearing apart the conservative movement.

Err, is Noonan describing the president, or the editorial board at the Journal?
