Maureen Dowd Attacks Dick, Liz, Mary (Cheney), Palin and Limbaugh

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd must have woken up on the far-left side of the bed Tuesday given the number of prominent conservatives she chose to abuse in her article published Wednesday.

In "Daisy Chain of Cheneys", Dowd went after former Vice President Dick Cheney, his two daughters Liz and Mary, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, former Vice President Dan Quayle, Rush Limbaugh, the Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol, and OF COURSE George W. Bush.

This was really quite a venom-dripping hatefest even for Dowd (h/t Jennifer Rubin):

Something is DEEPLY wrong with American journalism when it turns a blind eye to government, and begins to focus on the private individuals.

If we had an honest press, and a balanced entertainment media complex, Obama's approval rating would be in the high thirties. Instead of reporting on Obama's epic fail with respect to Russian support of Iranian sanctions, they're too busy talking about Rush Limbaugh's bid to buy an NFL franchise, or the daughters of a former VP. In the big scheme of things, which of those topics is more pressing and relevant for the American people?

Damn,she really is a screeching harpy,isn't she?
A life support system for her own boiling,raging cauldron of bile.
If the average human carried that much hate around with them day in and day out,they'd spontaneously combust.

Dowd-y adjective

Definition:

1. Lacking stylishness or neatness; shabby
2. Old-fashioned; antiquated.

No doubt about it.

Are you implying that she's, ummm, put on a little weight???

My guess is it's just redistribution of wealth... ;-)

Interesting. Perhaps she converted?

I have noticed that lately. We, the people, are the target for the wrath of the press. And they seem to go after all private citizens, not just former politicians.

Although I wonder if their lashing out at Americans is because of an angry response to Americans turning more and more of them off?

It’s a 6-pointer alright. She’s not Jewish...Kirk Douglas was though. Maybe it’s something that was given to her...or knowing Hollywood-types maybe it was just a design they liked and it was full of diamonds, so what the hell...

In Maureen Dowd’s article, she referred to “right wing dictators”... Would someone give me an example of ONE (1) right wing dictator because I’m stumped.

This destruction of private individuals is nothing more than a game to hide the real communists agenda. Keep Americans off balance while they trash America. This rotten little rat Dowd will be pitched under the RAT bus when she will soon become ineffective.

Hey, wait a minute. Dowd made some great points in the article (excerpts):

"... the Cheneys have led the charge against Obama, painting him as a wishy-washy loser who has turned America to mush." [no effort necessary]

" ... presenting the president as a callow, wobbly, golf-playing appeaser whose foreign policy will “make us weaker.”

"The “Keep America Safe” mission statement says that “the current administration too often seems uncertain, wishful, irresolute, and unwilling to stand up for America, our allies and our interests.”"

Okay, since she really doesn't believe any of this, here's a statement by CZJ:

Now, I don’t want to see that. Well, perhaps I do, just a peek.
