The state of the big tribal dumb: Maureen Dowd saved the best for last.
Dowd’s new column concerns same-sex marriage. Obama came out in favor of same-sex marriage last year.
Hillary Clinton came out in favor last week.
That said, the modern pseudo-liberal knows only one way to reason. With that in mind, Dowd saved the best for last.
In an otherwise pedestrian column (at best), she unloaded her bomb at the end:
DOWD (3/27/13): The fusty legal discussion inside [the Court] was a vivid contrast with the lusty rally outside. There were some offensive signs directed at gays, but the vibrant crowd was overwhelmingly pro same-sex marriage. One woman summed it up nicely in a placard reading “Gays have the right to be as miserable as I make my husband.”As she finished, Dowd dropped her bomb. As we have been telling you, this is the only language with which the modern pseudo-liberal can “reason.”
The only emotional moment in court was when Justice Kennedy brought up the possible “legal injury” to 40,000 children in California who live with same-sex parents. “They want their parents to have full recognition and full status,” he told Cooper. “The voice of those children is important in this case, don’t you think?”
While Justice Alito can’t see into the future, most Americans can. If this court doesn’t reject bigotry, history will reject this court.
Is it “bigotry” when people oppose same-sex marriage? We’re inclined to avoid such freighted words, but presumably it is in some cases. That said, Dowd has flawlessly displayed the mental world of the modern pseudo-liberal.
This is a topic on which our team began to make up its mind last Tuesday. On that basis, we feel empowered to say that everyone else is a bigot.
Unless we liberals can drop our bombs, it isn’t clear that we know how to talk. That said, Dowd looks like a mental giant compared to Salon’s Joan Walsh.
Yesterday, Walsh penned an astonishing overwrought piece concerning the Obamas’ daughters. It must be one of the dumbest pieces we’ve ever seen in print.
If you can’t see how dumb it is, there’s no real way we could tell you. Having said that, the comments—especially those from the liberals—make Walsh seem like Einstein's much brighter sibling.
Truly, it’s painful to read those comments, which now consume eleven pages. By the way: When’s the last time Salon ran a piece—any piece at all—about the needs and interests of low-income minority children?
Can you recall any such work? If such a piece had ever appeared, would you have bothered to read it?
That piece by Walsh is amazingly dumb—but Walsh knows only one way to “reason,” as she basically states at one point in her piece. For decades, the conservative world has been stunningly dumb.
Our tribe is now catching up fast.
When the Bush daughters got trashed: As of this morning, Walsh has been forced to pen a new piece discussing the way she once trashed the Bush daughters.
Walsh wouldn’t write that piece today, she is quick to “admit.”
That said, her new piece is just as dumb as yesterday’s offering was. In all honesty, Walsh went around the bend some time ago. She’s a full-blown tribal hater. And she seems to be blinded by her hatred, unless she’s just crazily dumb.
Let’s look on the brighter side:
Presumably, Walsh has scored some nice pay-days by now. If our tribe had one ounce of sense, we’d tell her it’s time to go. She could spend her declining years writing pieces like this at Salon—pieces in which she helps us consider the problem of farting in bed.
Our side is deeply, tragically dumb. Your lizard brain won’t let you see it!
