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'".

Yeah, almost.

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.

In before the Katherine Zeta-Jones pics. ;-)

OK, well, I would have been if the power hadn't gone out, cutting the internet just as I was about to post...

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.
