Maureen Dowd Speaks: The Ghastly Outdated Op-ed Columnist


MoDo: "I am big. It's the 'newspapers' that got small."
On Oscar night, with a silent film being considered for Best Picture, Ms Maureen "Norma Desmond" Dowd comes out of seclusion and takes pot shots at the GOP.  Here is a hint Ms. Dowd:  You are not in a position to call anyone "creepy." And this statement by you was curious: "How can the warm, nurturing Catholic Church of my youth now be represented in the public arena by uncharitable nasties like Gingrich and Rick Santorum? "  I am pretty sure you abandoned that "warm nurturing Catholic Church" of your youth way way before Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House, let alone in this election cycle.  
Prior EBL Post:  
Maureen Dowd is a big fat liar...
Sarah Palin on Maureen Dowd: Don't get all wee-weed up!
Maureen Dowd on Silence is Golden (it is indeed Ms. Dowd, when it comes to your political opining)


Academy Aware Update:  Well it is over, Sacha Baron Cohen steals the show...

Update:  The Other McCain comments about Marueen Dowd's latest rant:  "Finally, if ”perceived sexuality” is to be so zealously protected, would the Oakland Police press hate-crime charges against protesters if they shouted “bitter old spinster” at Maureen Dowd?"

  1. Nice catch. I did a bit on this "op-ed" myself.

  2. Ms. Dowd, IIRC, has never written a positive opinion of the Roman Catholic Church during her employment at the NYT. Her turning an institution that she demonstrably hates into the "warm, nurturing Catholic Church of [her] youth" invalidates her opinion. It's like Albert Einstein writing paeans of love to Hitler a few decades after leaving Germany.

    There, I invoked Godwin's Law and MoDo the DoDo in one comment!
