Are We Rome? Naaah.

It appeals to my vanity to believe, as Maureen Dowd and Sarah Palin do, that we are living in the End of Days; but the facts suggest that the American Century may very well give way to the American Millennium.

If credit dries up and there is no plan, more of your neighbors will lose their homes. Those homes will sit empty because potential buyers will not be able to come up with financing.

Kurtz: Journos Checking Their Tongues On Palin, McCain Cracks Down On Dowd | Jason Linkins | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics

Frankly, I don't know what the point of having a press is if they cannot cut through the fog of conversation to offer a sincere assessment of Sarah Palin's acumen.

Maureen Dowd Is Very Good At Outsourcing Her Column

Huffington Post | Rachel Sklar | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media

Maureen Dowd's latest column is #1 on the New York Times most-emailed list (aka 'MEL'), but technically it's not all hers — this week, she offer...

Worth reading, Maureen Dowd's op-ed in today's Times. Summary -- the McC choice of Palin is the plot of a low budget chick flick. Now, picking up the...

P.O.W., It's the New Teflon

McCain has been tweaking his P.O.W. story, with some variation, for many years. For Democrats, critiquing its overuse is too little, too late.

Michelle, Hillary, and Maureen at the DNC

Senator Clinton gave a performance that even Maureen described as "electrifying." Until I read the Dowd column this morning, I thought the hardest of the hardcore Hillary haters would be won over. But no.

Nice Point Hillary, Now We'll Just Wait for McCain to Make It

Linda Hirshman | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Linda Hirshman

This stadium thing looks like a really bad idea. But I did not write of this in public, because the blowback to criticizing Obama is so distracting and also because, well, they would probably wait for a man to say it.

Broken record here. The more I think about it, the more Al Gore seems the only really interesting choice for Barack Obama's vice presidential choice. ...

The Rules According to MoDo

How does Maureen Dowd know that Obama "took back a private promise to join McCain's campaign finance reform effort?" Obviously, that's McCain's story,

Not a Good Sunday for Women

I'll be surprised if McCain doesn't pick a woman. I've long speculated before that such a move would make good sense as McCain seeks to appeal to swing voters.

Hillary Wants [at Least] a First Ballot Vote at the Convention

Hillary seemed to encourage the push for "Hillary Clinton" to be placed in nomination -- she said that her delegates don't need her permission to be there.

More Big Macs for Barack, Part II

The Wall Street Journal's notion that Americans are fat slobs who will reject a candidate who eats right and is fit is an elitist view in itself, and flat-out insulting to American voters.

McCain's Wrong Again: The Press Has Turned On Obama

I guess the Uppity One on a World Tour was just too much for their lily-white hearts. There are, after all, rules. In the Willa Cather world the Washington press corps inhabit, decorum is life.

Maureen Dowd and Jon Stewart: Senator Obama Has a Sense of Humor Do You?

Frank Schaeffer | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Frank Schaeffer

There are worse things than being serious. Being robbed of a country that that we can be proud of is one. We are voting for Obama to restore hope and national pride, without which laughter makes no sense.

Dowd: More Big Macs for Barack

John McQuaid | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media

Even on its own terms -- as an attempted insight into Obama's alleged finickiness or his supposed distance from the Applebee's set -- Maureen Dowd's obsession with Obama and food doesn't make sense.
