  •  It's such valuable real estate (7+ / 0-)

    The OpEd page of the New York Times. Seems a shame for it to be wasted on snark, unless that snark is truly epic snark. (I think Gail Collins is funnier, but I wish they had kept Sarah Vowell on.)  I wish they would give that slot to someone less gossipy, more substantive than M Dowd.  And, agreeing with the other commenter, I'm offended whenever she calls the Prez "Barry".

      And when she is, she's better than when she does the snark.

    •  I'm a huge fan of Collins (0+ / 0-)

      and I think Collins and Dowd don't get along, but...

      Dowd, when she's at her best, is superb.

      So is Collins.

      I want BOTH of them to remain on the NYT op-ed page forever.

      Because really, the only op-ed columnist who is better than both of them put together is Dr. Krugman, and he can't be expected to write ALL op-ed columns. I mean, the man has other work to do!
