Dowd Unhinged Again
Commentary ^ | 10/17/10 | Jennifer Rubin

Posted on 10/17/2010 11:20:22 AM PDT by Nachum

This is rich: Maureen Dowd is aggrieved because Republican women are insufficiently demure. The grand dame of the Gray Lady, whose columns are distinguished not by their blindingly clever policy insights (her research is confined to taxi cabs in Manhattan) but by her own particular brand of nasty armchair psychology (not to mention plagiarism), is beside herself:

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.

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 that originally buoyed Barack Obama. Whether they’re mistreating the help or belittling the president’s manhood, making snide comments about a rival’s hair or ripping an opponent for spending money on a men’s fashion show, the Mean Girls have replaced Hope with Spite and Cool with Cold. They are the ideal nihilistic cheerleaders for an angry electorate.

Beaten at her own game, is she? Why yes. (She does impart one piece of information: Sharron Angle “campaigns at times with a .44 Magnum revolver in her 1989 GMC pickup.” My word, what is not to like about her?!) The tough girls have not only given a clear alternative to the whiny victimhood of Dowd and her fellow gender-grievance-mongers; they have redefined political feminism. You can gain power, win the respect and affection of fellow citizens, and be pro-free market, pro-guns, and pro-life (the unholy trinity of the left).

So that explains it. Maureen had a very difficult time in her teens and has never gotten over it.

Hey, I may not be the biggest fan of some of the politicians on that list, but anything that gets Maureen Dowd this upset is officially a Good Thing.

That's awesome! And she's never called an opponent a whore or a witch. Go, Sharron!

Woo-hoo!! The Nags are beaten at their own game....here we have TRUE feminists - strong, principled women - not hypocrites like the NOW gang who prostituted themselves in the face of Clinton’s abuse of women and most recently gave Brown’s “whore” remark a pass - all in the name of protecting abortion, their sacrament (as Coulter called it). I just love it.

Well I’ve been saved by the grace of Southern charm
I got a mouth like a sailor and yours is more like a Hallmark card
And if you wanna pick a fight
Well I’m gonna have to say goodnight
I don’t have to be hateful, I can just say bless your heart

And even though I don’t belong with your high life friends
It doesn’t mean we don’t get together and try to make amends
It’s easier can’t you see
Let’s agree to just disagree
We don’t have to like each other but it’s sure fun to pretend

So let’s shake hands and reach across those party lines
You’ve got your friends just like I’ve got mine
We might think a little differently
But we got a lot in common you will see
We’re just like you
Only prettier

Everybody says you’ve gotta know your enemies
Even if they only weigh a hundred pounds and stand five foot three
If you just smile and behave you can always get your way
It’s a universal plan that’ll get you where you can in all societies

So let’s shake hands and reach across those party lines
You’ve got your friends just like I’ve got mine
We might think a little differently
But we got a lot in common you will see
We’re just like you
Only prettier

Let’s shake hands and reach across those party lines
You’ve got your friends just like I’ve got mine
We might think a little differently
But we got a lot in common you will see
We’re just like you
Only prettier

Well, I’ll keep drinkin’
And you’ll keep gettin’ skinnier
I’m just like you
Only prettier

Maureen supposedly has a couple of brothers who are normal Americans. I’d like them to sit her down and have a long talk with her.

You almost have to feel sorry for "Lonely Mo'".

Perfectly written. I am passing it on to the mean conservative women I know. They will all enjoy a good laugh.

Rush is right. Liberals, especially the NAGS, are the unhappiest bunch of people. They just hate everything. Mo probably hates a beautiful fall day because of the environmental damage the falling leaves cause.

Well, you certainly can’t blame Douglas for getting far away. She is batty and has no concept of making it in life with only the cloth of your brothers.

Maureen has been a senile old bat since the Johnson administration. She needs another couple of gallons of makeup and some more estrogen supplements.

The happiest little girl has to be the one Douglas had with Jones. The girl is beautiful and her mother isn’t an angry never happened b!tch.

I exercise my right not to give a $hit what “MoDo” thinks about anything. She is given importance way beyond her meaning and as with the NYT, I revel in the decline.

Yes, informed by the insides of taxicabs where she has her head on the floor, her bottom in the air, her dress up and one show with its heel caught in a hole in the plexiglas divider.

I doubt you can think all that well in that position ~ but her Johns think she can.

They are so stupid.

Her feminist Nazi party is the Culture of Death and nihilism....They continue with the Big Lie and a bizarre interpretation of reality.

Angry, bitter, hateful, jealous.

It shows on her face. Makeup doesn’t hide that kind of ugly.

Dowd writes like a thirteen year old, hyperactive girl who thinks she knows everything, but actually knows nothing.

Michael Douglass dumped Mo Dowd for Catherine Zeta Jones, so all Mo Dowd threads have to be loaded with CZJ pictures -- it's a rule.

Maureen’s #1 goal in high school was “taking on” the football team behind the bleachers.

They got everything they wanted. They can marry other women, kill their babies, and hate on men. Life should be good for them.

Just read Dana Perino’s remarks regarding this piece by MODO the DODO.

One of the commenters to Dana hit the nail on the head and I think explains a lot of the anger and bitterness displayed by liberal women.

She says that conservative women LIKE TO BE WOMEN! BINGO.

One of the things I have always thought with liberal women, especially the feminazi types is that they are angry that they are women.

It explains so much when you think about it.

That is not Maureen Dowd, but Katherine Zeta Jones who married Dowd’s then boyfriend Michael Douglass.

Maureen Dowd (aka MoDo) has always been unhinged or about six bricks short of a full load in the cognitive reasoning department. Whenever I see her glory, she reminds me of a goalie for a dart board.
