Maureen Dowd nails it

Even a blind hen gets a worm once in a while.

Well, we are all different.

One thing I note about the NY Times (and I'm sure others though the times seems to be worse than most) opinion writers. They are never held accountable for the errors of their earlier statements. I suspect a review of the past 5 or 10 or 25 years of their punditry will reveal their very high error rates.

I suppose that is OK if they acknowledged their historical failure rate so that readers could realize that while they may write with panache they think with blinders.

PanZZer,

Hell, for a couple of beers you'd go for a snake if someone would hold it still for you.

On the other hand for a couple of beers I'd go for a pile of rocks if I thought there was a snake in it.

Well that takes care of any need to engage any circuits above the reptilian brain.

Please show me comparable postings by conservative members on this board.

Simply curious if juvenile expressions of hate are universally posted by the fringe here or if only the more enlightened ones do so.

Is this the best you can do?

So one guy says he can't read her work because she just oozes out of the screen all over his keyboard or something, and the rest of the talk is about Coulter. Didn't anybody read what she said? Who cares who said it? It's spot on as far as I'm concerned.
What's really depressing about this mess is the fact that thanks to Obama, it'll be in our grandchildren's lives maybe until an intellectual is elected again. The man is reminding me more and more of Carter. Carter, who I voted for also, was hampered by his evangelical upbringing. Obama, I fear, is just a pussy.

I don't understand why intelligence and balls can't be found in one individual. I'm beginning to think Hillary may in fact have had both and we blew it big time.

I liked Down for the first 5 or six years or so. But she has become increasingly formulaic and decreasingly analytical. I'm bored by repetition. Sorry.

It's the Nazi/Hitler thing man.

Whole different 'can-of-worms' in my world.

And what I said was her personality oozes.

I don't see comparableness but I've certainly been wrong before.

I don't understand this thing the left has with Hitler.

Down the street from me the guy has a Hitler/Bush bumper sticker and here is a Hitler/Coulter poster.

I just haven't seen (excluding the wacko's) posters of Obama, Pelosi, Clinton, Reed, Gore juxtaposed with Hitler/Nazis.

I mean have whatever opinion you want of Coulter, her views are no more extreme than Bill Maher's and she's smarter and prettier so why does one need to make her Hitler's sex slave?

And why am I the only one who says, time-out, this is not right?
