Maureen's New Age Exorcism
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 12/30/2007 10:04:48 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Is America ready for a New Age pundit? There's been much scrutiny of the respective religions of Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee. But do we need to reconsider Maureen Dowd's fitness for op-ed office in light of the revelation that she has apparently embraced New Age spirituality, even undergoing a New Age "exorcism" complete with swinging crytal?

I kept waiting for Dowd to say it was all a joke -- but she never did. Her column of today, "Am I a Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chameleon?", describes her experience, conducted by one Faith Green: "a pretty, curvy 31-year-old green-eyed blonde, [who] says she has studied tribal shamanism, rolfing, Pilates, tango, movement and stretching."

this seems like a good thread for my tagline. So, in order to put it here, I'll post this:

As soon as the Pope talks about the need for Exorcism, you can be sure every religious rebel in the known universe will begin hearing (and repeating) voices about their own.

I think it needs a bit more Kentucky Bluegrass in the mix. By the way, what lawn? :=)

Mo Dowd’s OpEd piece is here:

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/30/opinion/30dowd.html?_r=1&ref=opinion&oref=slogin

I must say that it isn’t any crazier than any of her other OpEd pieces. It’s just reveals more about the depths from which that craziness bubbles up.

Nothing has changed about her bizarre style. She’s just telling us more about herself this time. Probably snorted or drank too much before she sat down at her computer. Thus this self-revelation, which no doubt she will blame on the Curse of Sununu.

That’s a photo of actress Catherine Zeta-Jones. Maureen Dowd was romantically linked to Michael Douglas, but he dumped her for Catherine. So any whiny, self-absorbed Dowd column (i.e., all of her columns) brings out the photos of Catherine.

Whatever it was that Shirley MacClaine contracted several years ago, Dowdie has it.

When you ascend too fast from the bottom of the reef, nitrogen gets into the blood stream, and usually the first question asked is a foolish one.

Before inserting foot into mouth, try google, then ignorance won't be proven.

Even easier: Right click on the pic, then click on 'Properties":

If you read the original article, Maureen is attempting to sound amused, detached, and skeptical in that slightly cynical way the New York intelligentsia thinks is cool. But she wouldn’t have hired this shaman/healer/fraud if she were not desperate to figure out what’s wrong with her life.
