The New York Times is quite the diverse paper. Now that they sound more idiotic with William "The Bloody" Kristol on the editorial board it has gotten even worse. Sure, Krugman helps to balance things but Maureen Dowd can definitely serve up a whopping, steaming pile of sexist bullshit from time to time. She certainly came through today.
From The NY Times:
Even newly armored by the spirit of Camelot, Barack Obama is still distressed by the sight of a certain damsel.
It’s already famous as The Snub, the moment before the State of the Union when Obama turned away to talk to Claire McCaskill instead of trying to join Teddy Kennedy in shaking hands with Hillary.
Nobody cared about W., whose presidency had crumpled into a belated concern about earmarks.
The only union that fascinated was Obama and Hillary, once more creeping around each other.
It would have been the natural thing for the Illinois senator, only hours after his emotional embrace by the Kennedys and an arena full of deliriously shrieking students, to follow the lead of Uncle Teddy and greet the rebuffed Hillary.
What kind of f**king narrative is that? Couldn't she have thought of something better to write, like, gee I don't know, talking about issues and policy positions instead of this type of crap. Nobody wants to hear of Hillary as a damsel, if they are for or against her candidacy, that is not what people want to hear when talking about our next President. Reading Disney stories to little children is one thing, but Maureen is obviously caught in a fairy tale land. Her ramblings definitely confirm it.
She goes on and on, using words and phrases like "damsel," "Scarlett O’Hara," and "Queen Hillary."
