What They Really Think: GOPers Mike Murphy, Peggy Noonan Caught on Mike Trashing Palin Choice

Here is yet more evidence that one should never, ever trust one word from the GOP pundit bobbleheads that mark time on America's "cable news" infotainment outlets: about 38 seconds into this clip, Murph and Nooners express opinions that are in stark contrast to the talking points they spew with alacrity when they know they're on the air.
UPDATE: Transcript after the break.

Murphy: You know, because I come out of the blue swing state governor work. Engler, Whitman, Thompson, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush. I mean — and, uh, and these guys, this is all, like, how you want to win a Texas race. You know, just run it up. And it’s not gonna work. And, but…

Noonan: It’s over.

Murphy: Still, McCain can give a version of the Lieberman speech to do himself some good.

Todd: Don’t you think the Palin pick was insulting to Kay Bailey Hutchison, and to the… ?

Noonan: I saw Kay this morning.

Todd: She’s never looked comfortable about it.

Murphy: They’re all bummed out.

Todd: I mean, is she really the most qualified woman they could have turned to?

Noonan: The most qualified? No. I think they went for this, excuse me, political bullshit about narratives and …

Todd [talking over Noonan]: Yeah, but what’s the narrative?

Noonan: … the picture.

Murphy: I totally agree.

Noonan: Every time the Republicans do that because that’s not where they live and it’s not what they’re good at and they blow it.

Murphy: You know what’s really the worst thing about it? The greatness of McCain is no cynicism and this is cynical.

Todd: And as you called it, gimmicky.

Murphy: Yeah…

Todd: Yeah. Thanks, guys.

Murphy: See you later.
