September 14, 2005 A Fatal Incuriosity By MAUREEN DOWD
I hate spending time in hospitals and nursing homes. I find them to be some of the most depressing places on earth.
Maybe that's why the stories of the sick and elderly who died, 45 in a New Orleans hospital and 34 in St. Rita's nursing home in the devastated St. Bernard Parish outside New Orleans, haunt me so.
You're already vulnerable and alone when suddenly you're beset by nature and betrayed by your government.

What a lying hag.
I wonder if she blames Bush for her stupidity
Better pray that any children or relatives you may have don't feel the same way when YOU are confined to one, former Michael Douglas sperm dumpster....
Poor, Poor Mo! She'll never be happy.
Well you know the one flew over the coocoos next Nurse Ratchet was framed after G W Bush during his corporate days.
a Carter staffer . . lol . .
Can you make an exception to the rule on cussing...just for this thread?
What a vile, disgusting, hate-filled piece of excrement. After reading the Molly Ivins post, I don't know which of these two harpies is worse. I wonder which one will self-immolate first.
Yeah, it's always the Government's fault first and foremost, especially under a Republican president.
That nursing home?
I can't believe my eyes!!!!! Doesn't poor dumb Maureen know we know the truth of what happened in New Orleans? She is so full if it that if I ever saw her I'd have to slap some of it out of her!
MoDo's idiocy knows no bounds.
She goes out of her way to prove it in spades in this moronic hitpiece.
"How many places will be in shambles by the time the Bush crew leaves office?"
..if we have our wish, the NY Times building, for one...
Notice: I don't see the usual NYT blog comment link on this column.
What I mean is that there's usually a link for readers to post comments. Maybe I'm missing it.
I second the motion. 'Course I don't normally cuss, but it would be great to know it's possible.
i don't understand this rule, enlighten me.
I am holding George Bush fully accountible for the bird that dropped a turd on my windshield this morning
well of course she would...Maureen is a media whore...
What a Completely Unoriginal Negative Thinker.

The reason the people are being charged with the crimes for leaving the elderly people is because they were offered busses to evacuate the people in need. They were given the chance to evacuate and the owners determined that it would be too hard to do it and just left the people.
They should be hung for what they did, and this hag ought to be shot for her lying comments. But that will never happen, they will get a slap on the wrist, and she will continue to be a witch.
That would be one and the same.
For a while MoDo dated Michale Douglas. It is believed by FReepers that she went totally kookoo after he started dating Catherine Zeta Jones. So, in the hopes of driving her further off the edge, FReepers post a picture of Catherine whenever dodo MoDo is mentioned.
What a drunken piece of hate-filled filth!
"Is this the same nursing home where the parish emergency guy blamed Bush for not saving a co-workers mother for 4 days when in fact she died 4 days earlier and the co-worker, a deputy, did not go rescue his own mother, but told her she was on her own?"
Yes, the same nursing home.
"Momma, they're comin' to get you on Tuesday...Momma, they're comin' to get you Wednesday...Momma, they're comin' to get you on Thursday", etc.
Russert and Broussard are getting a pass on this and it's sickening! Has anyone (Hannity, Drudge, Rush) picked up on the lie?
What Enterprise said.
If they had loaded all those non-ambulatory and infirm patients onto buses and left and one or more died or become more ill only to discover that the nursing home was not destroyed, there would be ten times as many personal-liability lwayers wanting to prosecute them in civil court than this newshound of a prosecutor who doesn't want to be caught dead with his bosses when the mess is finally cleaned up.
These nursing home owners were screwed because they owned the nursing home; which fact left them without the faceless bureaucrat behind the scene to blame when the shit hits the fan.
Well since Mo appears to be the Wicked Witch of the East and Molly looks like the Wicked Witch of the West (or Southwest), a house will probably fall on Mo (The Slimes building), and Red Molly will probably ignite from self-combustion. After somebody throws water on her, she'll melt away. With that much rage, hatred, and bile stored inside those two, something bad has to happen eventually.
She forgets to add that it is the Emma Peel FOURTY years after her prime.
Al Bundy: My God. She was high kicking, too Arrrghhh!!!
"... a house will probably fall on Mo"
For G-0d's Sake, somebody drop a house on that woman"
I blame Maureen Dowd for lowering the average IQ of the entire nation.
As Louisiana's death toll spiked to 423 yesterday, the state charged St. Rita's owners with multiple counts of negligent homicide, accusing them of not responding to warnings about the hurricane. "In effect," State Attorney General Charles Foti Jr. said, "I think that their inactions resulted in the death of these people."
President Bush continued to try to spin his own inaction yesterday...
This is a pretty cheap college-freshman way of linking two independent ideas.....stapling them together by the repeated use of a single word.
Goebbels and Hitler would be sooooo proud.
The only thing I agree with her on is, nursing homes are incredibly depressing; a land of living death.
The rest is typical. *Flushes*
Give her a holler.
I saw the email address...there used to be a posting link, too.
She actually gets paid for this dribble? She needs to have someone put this load into an audio book and play it back to her.
Maybe that's why the stories of the sick and elderly who died, 45 in a New Orleans hospital and 34 in St. Rita's nursing home in the devastated St. Bernard Parish outside New Orleans, haunt me so. You're already vulnerable and alone when suddenly you're beset by nature and betrayed by your own wretched personality that's doomed you to a life of childless lonely emptiness!!!
Mmmmm. The reason I always check out MoDowd posts. It's certainly not to read anything that bitter idiot writes.
