On Mediaite: Peggy Noonan continues to dominate at…being a person yakking on television. She was invited on Morning Joe to debate tax policy with Andrew Ross Sorkin. When Sorkin asked if she would support higher taxes in 2012, Noonan was incredulous, asking “Why did you say 2012?

Except that apparently the $1 million offer is bunk, and we all know Grammer would never agree to this anyway. More important: I desperately need to know what Camille Grammer had to say about this.
