Perhaps Maureen Dowd Was In A Coma

Leave it to the ever increasingly irrelevant Maureen Dowd of The New York Times to write a piece that is nothing more than mindless prattle. Ms. Dowd is a frustrated old maid who has trouble seeing the real America from high atop her ivory tower. She is a liberal and loves to extol the virtues of liberalism while berating anyone who is not in line with her thinking.

All well and good but at least this shrew could demonstrate some professionalism. She is, after all, supposed to be a journalist.

Case in point. Dowd has a new article this weekend at the NYT (you find it, no linky love here). In it she discusses all the Republican women and how mean they are. She mischaracterizes the Arizona immigration law while taking a shot at the mean ole meanie Jan Brewer. Yes, to Dowd, Brewer is mean because she was elected to protect the citizens of Arizona and that is what she is doing. And Dowd does not stop at Brewer. She also has it in for Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and a handful of other conservative women.

Dowd is upset with these strong women and describes them as mean simply because they are out playing hardball in the field of politics. There was once a time when women like Dowd fought for the rights of all women and told us that women are just as tough as men. Now it seems that sentiment is only reserved for liberal women. Conservative women who are in the game are mean. Sharron Angle tells Harry Reid to man up and she is a horrible, mean woman.

Has Dowd ever called Hillary Clinton such things? Clinton uses the F word more than a platoon of special forces soldiers and has been known to throw a few things in the White House (confirmed by a Secret Service acquaintance) and Dowd ignores her meanness.

No, she has to reserve her disgust for the conservative women who are supposed to act like June Cleaver while the MSM, the political pundits, and their opponents ravage them. Can anyone honestly say that Sarah Palin got a fair shake and was treated with respect? Hell no, she was attacked, her family was attacked, and the left treated her like a bastard at a family reunion.

I think Dowd herself has had a few nasty things to say about some or all of the women she mentions but she conveniently ignores that while excoriating them for being mean.

Dowd’s writing is acerbic and it has been said that she is writing to her mother. Seems to me her mother should straighten that girl out. Perhaps a note like, hey Maureen, for goodness sake will you finally get yourself a man who will treat you like a cheap gong so you won’t feel so testy anymore.

Either that or she needs to see Doc Johnson and buy an aid.

We are not going to cure Dowd’s mental issues here so let’s move on.

She claims conservative women are mean. I guess this has something to do with the fact that many of them are WINNING and beating the pants off her liberal buddies. Yes, when conservatives win it is a mean thing, boo hoo.

I also cannot discount the bit of jealousy that must be at play here. Dowd is not too terribly famous and is a boor. She is a has been who has never wielded power.

It has to eat her up that conservative women have better name recognition and are contributing much more to society.

Don’t worry Maureen, your articles provide great value to millions of bird owners and guys who run the fish markets.

I guess Maureen has a right to be mad. The women she hates are influencing politics and the direction of this country. Some of them are beating Dowd’s candidates like they are red headed step children.

And that can’t sit too well with the Queen of boor.

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

  1. The source of Maureen Dowd’s bitterness is not hard to find.

  2. Blake says:

    Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.Dowd has, as long as I have read her, written like a woman scorned- like she has a crush on GWB, but the love wasn’t returned.
    With a tongue on her like she has demonstrated, noone in his or her right mind would want that shrew.
    I do not condone violence, but as the comic Sam Kinison once said, “I know what turns Mr. Hand into Mr. Fist.”
