    I have lots of experience with women. Not what you’re thinking. I mean experience in living around a variety of women. Most of those have been extremely strong and accomplished women. My Mother and her two sisters all had college educations at a time when Southern women were often expected to run the kitchen, clean the house, knit and sew, and play hostess. My grandfather was well educated, and insisted that all his daughters attend the strongest women’s college which was also south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Thus, they attended Goucher College in Baltimore, Md. (One met and married a...

    The vaulting ambition of America's Lady Macbeth Gerard Baker Hillary Clinton’s shameless political reconstructive surgery You can measure the scale of an American president’s troubles by the number of skutniks he deploys during his State of the Union address. Every year during his big set-piece speech to Congress, the president will digress from the main thrust of his remarks to offer fulsome praise to some member of the audience in the gallery. This person will have been carefully selected in advance by the president’s speechwriters as an exemplar of some virtue and placed there for the purpose. The television producers...

  • Dowd: Malignant Cheney is Lady Macbeth, OBL is Willie Horton

    by Mark Finkelstein September 13, 2006 - 10:21 Was Maureen Dowd kidding about having called Tim Russert to ask if VP Cheney washed his hands after his Meet the Press appearance this Sunday? By all indications she was not, making one fear the Times columnist is slipping ever deeper into Dowd Derangement Syndrome. Dowd writes in her pay-to-read column of today, Vice Must Wash Hands Before Returning to Work, "I called Tim Russert to ask if Dick Cheney had washed his hands after their interview on Sunday. Any sort of scrubbing, I wondered? Antiseptic wipe, Purell, quick shower on the...

  • A "Woman President"? But Which One?

    This is not about Dick Morris’ latest book, Condi vs. Hillary: The Next Great Presidential Race. The issue today is “Should America have a woman President?” I reply, “Of course, and not a moment too soon. But shouldn’t we put a LITTLE thought into which woman would be good for the job?” The woman/White House issue is, of course, raised by the new ABC program “Commander in Chief,” starring Geena Davis. Does anyone have slight doubt that a President should be impeached and removed, rather than praised, if he/she threatened war against another nation for executing one of its citizens,...

    The Call Cindy Sheehan, mother of deceased Army Specialist Casey Sheehan said this at President Bushs Crawford Texas Ranch: “We need to get our troops out of Iraq. The only reason Bush wants to stay there is because his buddies are getting rich and feasting off the blood of our children” and I have to wonder for the rest of my life if the gun which took Casey’s life was sold to Saddam by the US or by Britain. I could do a whole essay just on those two little nuggets, but I wont. I know. "This woman lost her...

    Memo to: Hillary Clinton, Her Indescribable Holiness from: Irv, New York Impresario re: your Presidential Gig Hillary, baby, Yes, I know the last time I offered you show biz advice, it was about your senatorial shtick. I said it wouldn’t work, and offered several reasons. You were right and I was wrong. But now you’re looking at a bigger league. You’ve put yourself in a great position to have a shot at the presidential gig. The Democratic Leadership Committee has just made you chairman (you don’t mind being referred to as a man, do you?) of the effort to write...

    Monday, Aug. 9, 2004 9:59 a.m. EDT Kerry Edwards Campaign Snubs Cancer Kids The Kerry Edwards campaign disappointed dozens of children suffering with cancer on Sunday when the candidates' whistlestop train tour failed to stop and greet them while traveling through a ranch where they were vacationing in New Mexico. "The train tracks run for four miles through the ranch," complained radio host Don Imus, who runs the Imus Ranch for the kids - some of them terminally ill - near Santa Fe, New Mexico. "We couldn't even get them to even slow down so they could wave." he lamented....

    “As God is my witness,” I did not want to write about Bill Clinton ever again. But he is a persistent cuss. Like Jack Torrance (Nicholson) said in The Shining, as he used an axe to chop through the door, “Little pigs, little pigs, let me in. Not by the hair of your chinny-chin-chin? Well then I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in.” Is there any doubt, by now, that Clinton (him) is equally persistent? That as long as he has life and breath he will continue to break into the present to upstage all other...
