The stupidity overwhelms me, but here goes anyway. Maureen Dowd spewing venomous vitriol in today’s NYT:
As I sat above the Hoover Dam under the broiling sun, I was getting jittery.
There was Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona, speaking at the dedication of a bridge linking Arizona and Nevada 890 feet above the Colorado River.
As the politicians droned on and my Irish skin turned toasty brown, I worried that Governor Brewer might make a citizen’s arrest and I would have to run for my life across the desert. She has, after all, declared open season on anyone with a suspicious skin tone in her state.
Seriously? Wait, wait, there’s more:
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.
The Republican Mean Girls? Oh, Maureen, how quickly we forget. Bushworld ring a bell? How about this this this this this this this or this? Lest I forget this? If anyone knows how to “spread rumors,” sweetheart, it’s you, with a side of snide, snark, and belittling.
What is it about women? Women can be opinionated–if and only if said opinions remain in line with the sole tenet of lockstep liberal womanhood: abortion, abortion, abortion.
I only wish I could vote for every single one of them–Jan, Meg, Carly, Sharron, Linda, Michele, Sarah, Christine (and how could MoDo forget Nikki Haley?!)
If I were a Democrat, I could. Sigh. Such is life, no?
UPDATE: Allahpundit used MoDo’s screed as part of the Quotes of the Day. Scroll through for some choice rebuttal from Dana Perino.
