Default Maureen Dowd says what needs to be said

MoDo has a great column in today's NYT. Read it.

If you're disinclined to click the link, at least read this bit:

I tended to agree with some Obama advisers that Democratic presidents typically have provoked a frothing response from paranoids — from Father Coughlin against F.D.R. to Joe McCarthy against Truman to the John Birchers against J.F.K. and the vast right-wing conspiracy against Bill Clinton.

But Wilson’s shocking disrespect for the office of the president — no Democrat ever shouted “liar” at W. when he was hawking a fake case for war in Iraq — convinced me: Some people just can’t believe a black man is president and will never accept it.


Bravo, Maureen.

Great column; thank you for the link.

Meanwhile, Rachel Maddow explores the merger of the Republican Party leadership and its extremist base.

Congratulations on the byline nikkibong. I hope you'll forgive me if I'm a bit ambivalent, though, regarding the venue. Eeww, ick!

Thanks Jeff.

I hear ya on the mag. . . but I stand by everything that I said in my particular article. (Also, I take no personal responsibility for the invasion of Iraq.) And if Phillip Anschutz wants to send me a check - who am I to say no?

Hey, I missed that link until Jeff mentioned it. Pretty cool, Nikkibong! Congratulations. That's a pretty prestigious platform! (Even if I do disagree with its politics.)

Take the checks, man! But if you ever find yourself traveling with Michael Goldfarb, you have a duty to perform. I'm sure I need say nothing further on the matter.

Default They're All Racists!

Bullshit! They're racists! Racists!

{Added} - I can't believe you thought this article was quality nikkibong. Talk about superficial at its best.

Default Congratulations!

Ethan, seriously.

Best of luck! This is Bob monovlog-worthy, if anything is.

I am proud of you , Nikki!

Wait, aren't you a LEFT-wing agitator and socialist deathpanel-ite traitor from Kenya and Indonesia only posing as an Oregonian?

Oh, I get it. You have infiltrated the belly of the monster!*

Often translated as "I lived in the belly of the monster"
