Maureen Dowd: Stupid, Insincere, and Ugly

Has there ever been a worse liberal pundit than Maureen Dowd? Any more shallow, smug, and harmful to liberal causes? Dowd condemns Gore and Kerry because "they allowed themselves to be painted as girlie men." Daily Howler has the goods, showing how Dowd herself tossed the paint on Gore 2000, doing great service to the RNC in the press corps' War Against Gore.

Don't worry Bob! Josh and Kevin (and even Atrios) may not link to you, but Citizen Cain will!

During the 2004 campaign, Citizen Cain fell out of his lazyboy when Dowd basically called Kerry a pussy on Real Time with Bill Maher. I don't remember Dowd's exact words, but I do vividly remember Aaron McGruder summarizing Dowd thus-- "So you're saying that Kerry is a bitch?" Dowd smirked and shrugged, as if to say, "if the shoe fits . . ."

Note also that Gore and Kerry's crime is they "allowed themselves" to be portrayed as weak. Not that they actually were. As if anything they could have done could have kept the likes of Dowd and the RNC from their nasty work. Dowd also manages in today's column to call Senator Clinton a "manly girl." Nice.

Did you know, by the way, that Dowd isn't as smart, sincere, or pretty as Naomi Wolf? It's true! Says so right here.
