The New York Times needs to show the door to Maureen Dowd.  Her "political comments" are more than ever expressions of her own psychological problems -- jealousy of other women, searching for a "Daddy" and demeaning those who don't measure up to whatever "macho" image she has in mind (especially Democrats).

Today, the supposedly "hip" Maureen jumps on the McCain/Graham bandwagon to go after Susan Rice.  So as not to be tainted with McCain's decrepitude and bitterness, she hides under the cover of Susan Collins, supposed "moderate," who has decided to throw Rice under the bus and has "questions" about Rice's TV appearances.

Dowd's Sunday column was yet more evidence that she has never met a Democratic politician that she doesn't try to emasculate.  That column had the absurd premise of comparing Obama to Redskin's phenom RGIII. "While Obama prefers to preen as the man alone in the arena .  .  .  . RGIII never passes up a chance to share credit."  She's repeating the same offensive act she started with Clinton and Gore (her last column about Gore before the '00 election was titled "I Feel Pretty" and imagined him, yes "preening" before a mirror.)  Crap like that can cost 538 votes in Florida.

Send her to TMZ where she belongs.

(I can't in good conscience link to her and add even one hit to her total.)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
