Despite that, please donate here: Late yesterday, the analysts cheered when they saw Kevin Drum refer to Maureen Dowd in a rude, dismissive way:
“I just don't get it. What does it take to convince the Dowds and Milbanks and Fourniers of the world? How can any of them still believe that Republicans will ever agree to real revenue increases?”
We recommend Drum’s full post. But this would be a different world if career writers had dismissed the very influential Dowd that way over the past twenty years. If they had been willing to sniff at her as one of “the Dowds of this world.”
As you know, that hasn’t been the way of the mainstream or liberal worlds. Two nights ago, Stephanie Miller helped us see, for the ten millionth time, now our fallen world actually works. Compliments must be paid!
Here at this site, we have begged the liberal and mainstream worlds to reject its Rampant Dowdism. Before our fund-raising drive is done, we’ll even show you a very old transcript in which we rolled our eyes at Dowd’s 1999 Pulitzer Prize—with the help of Bill O’Reilly, in 1999, right there on The Factor!
Yes, it actually happened, in the days when cable was young and Fox hadn’t yet taken control. But let’s face it—we’ve been right from the start about the insipid mainstream culture Dowd very much helped create.
Maybe Kevin can start a virtuous trend! In the meantime, why not donate here? Analysts need a new pair of shoes! To help them continue their many tasks, go ahead:
