Since I try to maintain some level of decency here, I am not going to tell you what I realy think of Maureen Dowd. I can give you a hint, though.
The word I am thinking of rhymes with “Punt.”
The first letter of the word might be “C.”
Check out her latest bile:
At every opportunity, as the extraordinary procession solemnly wended its way from California to the Capitol, W. was peeping out from behind the majestic Reagan mantle, trying to claim the Gipper as his true political father.
Finally, there’s a flag-draped coffin and military funeral that President Bush wants to be associated with, and wants us to see. (It’s amazing they could find enough soldiers, given Rummy’s depletion of the military.)
Under 70 words, and she manages to:
A.) Lie about Bush’s presence. Bush was in Georgia at the G-8, and I watched wall to wall coverage. There was little or no mention of the current President, little or no attempt to compare Bush to Reagan.
B.) Lie about Bush and invoke the favorite DNC myth- “Bush doesn’t visit the wounded or dead soldiers.”
C.) Over-estimate the status of the military and fails to mention which political side was in favor of force reduction. Wanna take a wild guess which side of the issue MoDo was on in the past?
I bet there is more, but I quite reading.
Quick question- Has the NY Times ever had a more sustained attack on a sitting President than what we have listened to about Bush for the past 4 years?
