It must really suck to be Maureen Dowd. I seldom read her screeds, but bloggers and such were writing about her dismissive column today about Palin.
Reading this godawful piece, I am reminded of how the worst sexists are often women.
She treated Hillary Clinton like crap, so why should I be surprised with her attitude towards Sarah Palin? Because Palin was a beauty contestant and "Miss Congeniality," she is an airhead. Because she didn't go to Harvahd but instead to a despised state university and actually worked for a living on her own merit, she is beneath contempt. How dare she have a Down syndrome baby. Republicans don't see her as an affirmative action candidate despite her thin resume, while Dowd's idol Obama has an even thinner one and wouldn't be where he is today without his shady Chicago connections.
Just when I think I have been the most disgusted I have ever been, something else comes along to top it.
Do these so-called liberals really want to lose that badly? Because of the constant pimping of Obama and trashing all opponents, for the first time in my adult life I am truly ashamed of my country. For the first time in my adult life I will NOT be voting for president, and since I cannot write in anybody else's name on a Nevada ballot, I will simply check off "none of these candidates."
