Just another liberal reporter dissing a conservative woman. Maureen is just frustrated because she lost out in the Michael Douglas sweepstakes.

The woman is pushing 60 years old and it’s going to get uglier as she continues to transform into Helen Thomas.

"I worried that Governor Brewer might make a citizen’s arrest "

Not to worry Mo. Unless they start arresting people for utter stupidity and a "green with envy" skin tone, yer safe.

Say good bye you tired old hack.

Dowd is one ugly woman. She keeps that old photo in her byline and that only proves what a liar she is. Does anyone have a recent photo?

She looks exactly like my fifth grade teacher in Catholic school - a nasty nun with tight little lips and a way of emasculating little boys and terrorizing little girls.

For creepy old Dowd to talk about OTHERS having mean streaks - what hypocrisy! What stupidity! What Washingtonitis!

These women — Jan, Meg, Carly, Sharron, Linda, Michele, Queen Bee Sarah and sweet wannabe Christine — have co-opted and ratcheted up the disgust with the status quo ......

Pure projection.

What Maureen fears is a complete repudiation of her ideology, and it's going to happen in bottom-up fashion, not because of "co-opting" or "ratcheting" on the part of leaders. The anger and frustration with Obama's policies came first, and the Mama Grizzlies have arisen because they show the willingness to take action. Words have nothing to do with what we are witnessing.

Maureen, like all liberals, cannot fathom that her ideology is now proven beyond a shadow of doubt to be bankrupt.

I think she USED TO BE witty. She’s always been nasty which makes her accusations of mean girls pretty funny—but still not witty. I think panic has overcome what talent she used to have.

This is what female jealousy looks like.

It's hell when you age and have to watch the younger, more popular women arrive and get all the attention.

It's not fun looking into the mirror and asking "Who is the fairest of them all?" and receiving an honest answer.

Maybe Mo can dress like a kindly old woman and take poisoned apples to those "pretties" she hates.

It's pathetic to watch a grown woman behave like this.

This is one of those articles when you ask yourself “Does she really believe the crap she has committed to print?” Honestly, this article is so over the top that it reads as a parody of Dowd.

MoDo seems to have adopted the “just lay back and enjoy it” response to the current rape and dismantling of the economy and abandonment of basic American ideals. She worries Gov. Jan Brewer is going to deport her for getting a suntan on her pasty white Irish countenance? What a total crock of crap. She’s going down with this ship of fools and it can’t come soon enough for me.

Hmmm, when their Conservative girls, they’re “mean girls”, when their demon-rats, they’re “strong feminists”.

I hate these people more and more each day. I cannot wait until 11/2.

Maureen Dowd is nearly 60 years old. You’d think she would have gotten over high school by now.

We are in the era of Republican Mean Girls, grown-up versions of those teenage tormentors who would steal your boyfriend, spray-paint your locker and, just for good measure, spread rumors that you were pregnant.

I think Maureen just confessed that her High School experience is why she is so bitter.

That question assumes that she was relevant. I have seen no evidence of that.

As Maureen is sitting in the sun getting brown it isn’t the sun doing it.
She is just full of that brown stinky stuff.

Doud needs to get out of New York and hanging with the liberal gliterrati an see how real Americans in the heartland of this country live and work. She is a typical snide liberal who thinks the great unwashed are too stupid to tie their shoes without help from the government. I would love to see Doud interviewing Congressional candidate Kriti Noem (R-SD) on horseback. Trouble is from the back it would be hard to tell which was the horse.

Slamming free cocktails all night at the craps tables will do that. You should really get out of the sun and rehydrate, Maureen. All that hard drinking's tough on an old broad.

Conservative women bad, liberal women good, blah blah blah, vitriol dribble ad nauseum. I’m jealous Angle has a 44 magnum and my wife only has a 380 Bersa. I guess that makes her a former teen age female terror too? Nah, she would have been on the receiving end of the pranks.
