If Hollywood is high school for rich people, and Washington is Hollywood for ugly people, then today's journalism is Hollywood high school, where the English major dweebs obsess over the "cool" crowd.


You're reminding me of a reaction I had just the other day, which I will now paraphrase fairly. Chris Matthews played a clip of Hillary responding to David Gregory (I think) questions about whether she wants to run for president. (I hate this question. I hated it when Tim Russert wasted time with it and I still hate it. Six months since Inauguration Day and he's wasting air time with this.) She said no, she couldn't imagine that. Gregory, nobody's fool he, pounces with, "But you didn't say 'never'!" Hillary: "Okay. Never. No. Whatever you want." Cut back to Matthews: "Well, I think we all know what she's thinking."

I thought, "What is it with these Washington people? Do they actually see horrors in Hillary that are hidden from everyone else?" Why do they all presume to live inside her brain? if Chris Matthews could ever get inside any woman's brain. I've seen him in an interview with his own wife. He couldn't get inside her brain!

Or could it be something about Catholicism - Matthews, Dowd - and presidential oral sex that has so twisted them? Really, it's so strange to me that I will consider almost any cockamamie theory.


Some guy on the internet nailed this exact issue ten year ago, and it always stuck with me;

Maureen Dowd hates everyone.


VERY nice smack down of Dowd - the Daily Howler does it more often but you do it with more finesse. Kudos!
