Connecting the dots between Maureen Dowd of the NYT, and Emmett Tyrrell of the American Spectator: Dowd: “If we can’t catch a Nigerian with a powerful explosive powder in his oddly feminine-looking underpants and a syringe full of acid, a man whose own father had alerted the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria, a traveler whose ticket was paid for in cash and who didn’t check bags, | Read More »
Obama Is Opposed By Racists
If patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel then crying racism must be in the other half of the duplex. Many of us noted back during the ’08 primaries and general election that the Obama camp would cry racism at the drop of a hat. He performed poorly in Pennsylvania because of racism. He was trounced in WV because of racism. In August 2008, | Read More »
Stay strong Ms. Dowd, never be silent. Your country needs you.
The latest installment of the left’s thrashing of a person they don’t agree with comes from Ms. Maureen Dowd’s op ed in the NY Times. This latest condescending missive about Sarah Palin includes such mature phraseology as “Caribou Barbie is one nutty puppy,” “exquisite battiness,” “loopy,” and “solipsistic meltdown.” Solipsistic? Way to dazzle us with big words! There’s plenty more where that came from, Dowd | Read More »
But I’m a Liberal and I Voted for Obama….I Can’t be a Sexist or a Racist!!
I’m not sure if anyone else has noticed this recent phenomenon or not, but for the past year or so, liberals have progressively become more and more flagrant with regard to making sexist, racist, or bigoted comments about anyone who ran against or voted against Barack Obama. At first, liberal sexism and bigotry started out as a distant rumble–now it has become a thunderous roar. | Read More »

Among the universe of writers I keep up with even though I rarely agree with is NYT columnist Maureen Dowd. Her plaigerism scandal broke following her column of May 17. http://tpmcafe.talkingpointsmemo.com/talk/blogs/thejoshuablog/2009/05/ny-times-maureen-dowd-plagiari.php Her regular midweek column appeared the following Wednesday, May 20, after which she has seemingly dissappeared into thin air, with no Dowd column published on her last 5 Sunday / Wednesday slots. http://topics.nytimes.com/top/opinion/editorialsandoped/oped/columnists/maureendowd/index.html Has she resigned or been fired? | Read More »
I’m linking to this MoDo piece on a Cheney/Rumsfeld “conversation”…
…(care of the much more interesting Jen Rubin) for two reasons. One, people like Dowd really do think that we think and talk like this: “I hear Poppy Bush is furious at you,” he says. “He’s telling folks he put Junior in your care and you stole his presidency and destroyed the Bush name and derailed Jeb’s chances to ever be president, and P.S., you | Read More »
Maureen Dowd unloads … on Obama??
Yes, that’s not a typo. Not only does she go after Obama over the porkulus bill squealing through Congress, but she also heaps praise on McCain for his railing against earmarks – and using Twitter as a tool for twisting the knife.
Quote Of The Day
You wonder if Maureen Dowd reads her own paper when she writes things like this: “Mr. Obama called W. on Friday to give him a heads-up about the repudiation on Iraq. Robert Gibbs said the call was not at all contentious.” Should someone tell her it wasn’t contentious because it marked the fulfillment not the repudiation of Bush’s Iraq policy? (Hence, the decision to leave | Read More »
Maureen Dowd is a Raging Snob!
OK, I admit it. When it comes to Maureen Dowd, I’m like a moth to a flame. I know that I have already written a diary about how ridiculous she is, but I am back for more. This time, I would like to try her (and The New York Times) in the court of public opinion, and if you all would be so kind as | Read More »
If this is how NY liberals are feeling, we’re going to have fun in 2010.
For those who don’t feel like risking the SAN/Intelligence loss that can come from reading one of Dowd’s columns, let me summarize: I like Blagojevich more than I like Paterson, because Blagojevich is clearly insane – do you hear that, Illinois voters? Insane – and Paterson did my friend Marquise Caroline Kennedy-Schlossberg wrong by not picking her right away. That let the awful, awful Clintons | Read More »
And The Winner Is–Maureen Dowd!
OK, it’s official. Maureen Dowd is the worst New York Times op-ed columnist of the 2008 election year. Folks, that’s a big accomplishment because, as you all know, she had some pretty stiff competition from the likes of Frank Rich, Bob Herbert, and Nicholas Kristof. So, without further delay, please allow me to explain exactly what Maureen Dowd did to merit her award. First of | Read More »

The Socialists are Coming!
The left has once again exposed their hand. In a recent column by Maureen Dowd, she was addressing McCain’s return to Washington to deal with the financial crisis. She said “It was quite a memorable moment in history for the M.B.A. president and the nominee of the party of business. Who would have dreamed that *when socialism finally came to the U.S.A. *it would be | Read More »
Maureen Dowd: Superfluous Fiction, Supreme Storyteller
I’ve often been told that a great writer is capable of making the reader feel connected and empathetic for the protagonist irrespective of how. Fiction gives the writer amazing leverage in creating the story around the character to accomplish that empathetic end. Honesty, when the protagonist is real however, rarely makes for a spectacular “based on a true story” Lifetime movie. Such is the case | Read More »
Tasteless, Tacky, Heartless: The Prose of Maureen Dowd
John McCain drew blood with the Palin pick. That was obvious from the ill-considered instant press release from the Obama campaign deriding the accomplished governor of Alaska as the former mayor of a tiny burg on the tundra. It hurt. McCain fooled everyone. The fumble-rooski just took a backseat to the McCain Maneuver. Maureen Dowd is on the case, though. She’s got that Sex and | Read More »
