White Manís Last Stand (Maureen Dowd alert)
The New York Times ^ | July 14, 2009 | Maureen Dowd

Posted on 07/15/2009 8:03:56 AM PDT by Bratch

You can’t judge a judge by her cover.

Despite the best efforts of Republicans to root out any sign that Sonia Sotomayor has emotions that color her views on the law, the Bronx Bomber kept a robotic mask in place.

A wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not know that a gaggle of white Republican men afraid of extinction are out to trip her up.

After all, these guys have never needed to speak inspirational words to others like them, as Sotomayor has done. They’ve had codes, handshakes and clubs to do that.

One thing for sure MoDo is not a “wise Latina woman”. Unlike Zeta-Jones!

What is “If an old Republican white guy and Maureen Dowd were stranded on a desert island” for $1,000, Alex.

I think when this country becomes a banana republic and nothing
works, dowd is going to miss the old white guys.

Or maybe it should be “Can’t get a date to save my life; major skank; who will love me when I’m an old, dried-up, undie wetting hag?” alert.

“You can’t judge a judge by her cover”

Then “why’d he” pick her, Mo?

We all know the answer, and you do too. The difference is, you wouldn’t admit it. And therein lies the problem with your’s and those of your ilk’s obession with race.

Has anyone given consideration to sending pictures of Catherine to Dowd whenever she writes a nasty, juvenile column like this (so that would be twice a week)? Just to let her know that we know why she’s so embittered and miserable?

MoDo will go to her grave seething at the white men who had no interest in marrying her.

There’s always alcohol involved, if Maureen Dowd’s belatedly trying to mate.

Let’s just say she floated in on a cask of rum, lol.

Which seem to have embittered her.

I wouldn't give the Times web site a click, but from the excerpt, I had to laugh. Dowd is a charter member of the NY arts and croissants crowd. If there was ever a member of a club that considers themselves the exclusive insider group, it's the editorial staff at the Times.

I've also noticed the Times has done absolutely nothing in terms of looking at her judicial record.

Dowdy Doody already has arsenic dripping on her old lace sunken bodice and running down her arthritic limbs where it splashes sullenly to the basement floor, scattered with rejections from E-Harmony.

What a great idea! How sad to have your personal life so pathetic that no one takes your views, for which you are getting paid, seriously. Women have to be that much more careful and she has blown it big time - case in point - the stupid book she wrote about how lousy her love life is. Definitely her own fault...

Dowd should read Raspail's Camp of the Saints if she's really interested in the white man's last stand. It's not pretty.

“white Republican men afraid of extinction”
the only reason why White men are in the Republican party is that it is their only (faint) hope of being kept from extinction.

Can you imagine how embarrassed the guy who hired Dowd must be?

Sotomayor is lying her fat Latina ass off. And she will continue to do so until confirmed and then she will go back to being the racist she is.

This self loathing act which they push in their triangulation strategy to keep them up at the top is gonna wear thin with both sides.

Thanks, I had assumed that people were sending her such photos, but perhaps not. In case no one has thought of this before, we could just send a picture, captioned, “Maureen, we understand. This is why you’re so nasty and catty. Search your soul, find peace, develop a sweeter temper, and maybe someday some man might love you.”

“frustrated and fed up with the limp-wristed, dip-stick men...”

There is a lot of truth in those words. I am an old redneck boy married to a wonderful,educated woman. She made the comment the other day, “I’m glad you aren’t like those sissy men I have to deal with at work.” I replied, “So you ain’t sorry you married an old redneck boy from back home?” Her reply: “I married you because you are a redneck!”-—JM

Yup. It's already too late, we passed the tipping point a few years back.

The people with the most ammo will prevail though. (IQ will be instrumental too)
