For better of worse nothing fires up Maureen Dowd like powerful women. In today’s column her sights are set on the ‘Republican Mean Girls.’ In other words, Sarah Palin‘s Mama Grizzlies. Perhaps not surprisingly she has some rather mean words for this group (in the words of Drudge: MAUREEN DOWD UNLEASHED):
These women — Jan, Meg, Carly, Sharron, Linda, Michele, Queen Bee Sarah and sweet wannabe Christine — have co-opted and ratcheted up the disgust with the status quo that originally buoyed Barack Obama. Whether they’re mistreating the help or belittling the president’s manhood, making snide comments about a rival’s hair or ripping an opponent for spending money on a men’s fashion show, the Mean Girls have replaced Hope with Spite and Cool with Cold. They are the ideal nihilistic cheerleaders for an angry electorate.
Emphasis mine, because no one knows “belittling the president’s manhood” better than Maureen Dowd. Meanwhile, presumably MoDo managed to escape deportation:
As the politicians droned on and my Irish skin turned toasty brown, I worried that Governor Brewer might make a citizen’s arrest and I would have to run for my life across the desert. She has, after all, declared open season on anyone with a suspicious skin tone in her state.
