Every once in a while Maureen Dowd leaves her Lefty closet to poop. Nature will have its way.
Maureen Dowd has written nonsense for years. I once collected her scribbles in the New York Times as samples of the intellectually kept feminist New Yorker, a lefty mental hooker of big mouth and small brain, too ditsy to dislike. She must have been the first female student to enter Harvard when it finally allowed such people into its halls.
Somewhere in the inner sancti of my house I have the best article she has ever written…….yes, this is a bit of hyperbole, for no, I haven’t reviewed all of her poops. Please forgive me.
It was probably early second week in that November after one of America’s greatest insults to the world, John F. Kerry eked out a failure to become 43rd president of these United States. This Maureen’s promising aardvark, was destined to throw decency out of the white house to find more room for his yachts.
Maureen was intellectually, emotionally, religiously, leftily, hysterically, and in total dream was convinced of Kerrytime in the White House. She must have spent days free of her closet restraints stunned trying to grasp the shock of this eventful loss. What might she write to explain it?
She turned to family.
She turned to a Republican brother, her political enemy. She described his conservative thinking. There is no way I can paraphrase her words describing the mind and soul of her brother’s collections of conservative behavior and thought and do it any justice. In a sense she was writing Maureen Dowd stuff in the usual shallow Maureen Dowd snotty way, but it didn’t quite ring true. She was trying to hate this brother verbally for helping the enemy of her lefty dreams, G.W. Bush win re-election. She tried to write mean by couldn’t make it work.
Family ties ruled her pen. She must have loved this brother very much. Respectfully, but not at all understood, Maureen Dowd described him as a deeply devoted conservative, an honorable man, a decent, intelligent thinking Republican man, a wonderful member of her family, even listed some honorable conservative positions he supported………and she moaned, “How could he not be a lefty?”
“How could he be a Republican?’
Unlike many, maybe most of today’s lefties, most Republicans are truly good people. They have traditional honorable American values and try to live by them. Their JudeoChristian ties have been an aid…..and are still likely honored in some way.
I know Maureen Dowd only by her column. She is a classic lefty New York snot and makes her money being one. If she is educated at all, her learnings are paper thin. Someone should track her day to help her discover why she knows so little about the real world.
Maureen Dowd doesn’t like Rick Santorum. She wrote the following article in yesterday’s New York Times:
“RICK’S RELIGIOUS FANATICISM”
Rick Santorum has been called a latter-day Savonarola.
That’s far too grand. He’s more like a small-town mullah.
“Satan has his sights on the United States of America,” the conservative presidential candidate warned in 2008. “Rick’s Religious FanaticismWhen, in heaven’s name, did sensuality become a vice? Next he’ll be banning Barry White.
Santorum is not merely engaged in a culture war, but “a spiritual war,” as he called it four years ago. “The Father of Lies has his sights on what you would think the Father of Lies would have his sights on: a good, decent, powerful, influential country — the United States of America,” he told students at Ave Maria University in Florida. He added that mainline Protestantism in this country “is in shambles. It is gone from the world of Christianity as I see it.”
Satan strikes, a Catholic exorcist told me, when there are “soul wounds.” Santorum, who is considered “too Catholic” even by my über-Catholic brothers, clearly believes that America’s soul wounds include men and women having sex for reasons other than procreation, people involved in same-sex relationships, women using contraception or having prenatal testing, environmentalists who elevate “the Earth above man,” women working outside the home, “anachronistic” public schools, Mormonism (which he said is considered “a dangerous cult” by some Christians), and President Obama (whom he obliquely and oddly compared to Hitler and accused of having “some phony theology”).
Santorum didn’t go as far as evangelist Franklin Graham, who heinously doubted the president’s Christianity on “Morning Joe.”
Mullah Rick, who has turned prayer into a career move, told ABC News’s Jake Tapper that he disagreed with the 1965 Supreme Court decision striking down a ban on contraception. And, in October, he insisted that contraception is “not O.K. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”
Senator Sanitarium, as he was once dubbed on “The Sopranos,” sometimes tries to temper his retrogressive sermons so as not to drive away independent and Republican women who like to work, see their kids taught by professionals and wear Victoria’s Secret.
He told The Washington Post on Friday that, while he doesn’t want to fund contraception through Planned Parenthood, he wouldn’t ban it: “The idea that I’m coming after your birth control is absurd. I was making a statement about my moral beliefs, but I won’t impose them on anyone else in this case.”
That doesn’t comfort me much. I’ve spent a career watching candidates deny they would do things that they went on to do as president, and watching presidents let their personal beliefs, desires and insecurities shape policy decisions.
Mullah Rick is casting doubt on issues of women’s health and safety that were settled a long time ago. We’re supposed to believe that if he got more power he’d drop his crusade?
The Huffington Post reports that Santorum told Philadelphia Magazine in 1995 that he “was basically pro-choice all my life, until I ran for Congress.” Then, he said, he read the “scientific literature.”
He seems to have decided that electoral gold lies in the ruthless exploitation of social and cultural wedge issues. Unlike the Bushes, he has no middle man to pander to prejudices; he turns the knife himself.
Why is it that Republicans don’t want government involved when it comes to the economy (opposing the auto bailouts) but do want government involved when it comes to telling people how to live their lives?
In a party always misty for bygone times bristling with ugly inequities, Santorum is successful because he’s not ashamed to admit that he wants to take the country backward.
Virginia’s Republican governor, Bob McDonnell, touted as a vice presidential prospect, also wants to drag women back into a cave.
This week, public outrage forced the Virginia Legislature to pause on its way to passing a creepy bill forcing women seeking an abortion to undergo an ultrasound, which, for early procedures, would require a wand being inserted into the vagina — an invasion that anti-abortion groups hope would shame some women into changing their minds once they saw or heard about traits of the fetus.
Democratic Delegate Lionell Spruill hotly argued that the bill would force “legal rape.” “I cannot believe that you would disrespect women and mothers in such a way,” he chided colleagues. “This legislation is simply mean-spirited, and it is bullying, bullying women simply because you can.”
While the Democratic-controlled Maryland House of Delegates just passed a bill that would allow same-sex marriage, the Republican-controlled Virginia Legislature passed a bill allowing private adoption agencies to discriminate against gays who want to be parents.
The Potomac River dividing those states seems to be getting wider by the day”.
Comment: As you notice while reading the above Dowd New York Times piece, there isn’t much worth remembering from her words. She hasn’t described Rick Santorum’s religious concepts and ideas which may apply to his presidency.
She reaches deep into the past to pick and choose his words.
When one reads any writing by leftwinger Maureen Dowd, one reads the left wing. So little has to do with problem solving but everything to do with hysterics. The Left is indeed the Women’s club for the loony female, the one Marueen Dowd so accurately represents…….except for that one writing nearly eight years ago.
