Maureen Dowd: fiction writer?

Do you get this?  An supposed opinion piece in the NY Time by MD  is really a short bit of fiction that contains a comspiratorial meeting between H. Clinton and McCain.  They toss back vodka and congratulate themselves on have done down Obama.  Georgia was part of the plot, it turns out, since Bill convinced Putin to go for it. 

At the end, Jesse Jackson shows up to get reassurance that it’s over.

Now, for sheer Hillary hatred MD gets top marks  with, for example,

It would have been better to put this language in the platform: “A woman who wildly mismanages and bankrupts a quarter-of-a-billion-dollar campaign operation, and then blames sexism in society, will dampen the dreams of our daughters.”

So now she’s run out of opinons in which she can invest her ire, so she’s trying fiction?

(If you want to see our discussions of MD and HRC, you could try the search engine or just start here.  It is not a pretty picture.)

My bet on what is going on?  I think it’s the same ‘blame the woman” trope that we saw visited on Elizabeth Edwards.

  1. Sometimes it just flabbergasts me how women can be just as misogynistic as men. Especially those who actually have influence on public opinion…. gah!

  2. I was completely disgusted by her articles. She is definitely one of the most bitter, nasty misogynists I’ve ever read.
