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.

“A wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences”

Which seem to have embittered her.

For some reason, the concept of culling out the “white man” reminds me of geese and golden eggs...

Ole Modo, what a sourpuss of a woman!

Self-loathing, empty, pathetic life of a lonely New York feminist.
