Maureen Dowd And The Making Of Barack Hitler Hussein Obama

NEW York Times columnist Maureen Dowd hears things other do not.
Republican congressman from the South, Joe Wilson, heckles Barack Hitler Obama with the cry “You lie”.

Maureen Dowd pricks up her ears:

“…what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: ‘You lie, boy!’ Some people just can’t believe a black man is president and will never accept it.”

You lie?

Dowd might reprehend the true meaning of what she is saying, but Ace of Spades (yeah, Spades) hears you, Maureen and delivers his Top Ten American Political Quotations. Put on those Dowd Cansspeak into one end and hear exectly what you want to come out the other! –  and listen up:

10. JFK: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country, you greasy Dago bastard.”

8. Bill Clinton: “I want to say one thing to the American people. I want you to listen to me. I’m going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Sheeney McHebrewstein.”

6. Will Rogers: “I never met a man I didn’t like. On the other hand, I don’t know any chinks.”

2. Richard M. Nixon: “I. Am not. A Jew.”

1. America’s All-Time Longest-Serving Senator, Democrat Robert Byrd: “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side… Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.” [quote unaltered]

Over in the Mail, Gavin Esler asks:

“…you ****!”

Sarah Palin Loses Presidency Wins Facebook

MAUREEN Dowd salutes the awesome power of Sarah Palin in the New York Times – imagine if Palin had the White Hosue and not just Facebook:

[Sarah Palin] took a forum, Facebook, more commonly used by kids hooking up and cyberstalking, and with one catchy phrase, several footnotes and a zesty disregard for facts, managed to hijack the health care debate from Mr. Obama.

Palin win internets!

maureen-dowdMAUREEN Dowd has won the New York Times’s memory challenge. Maureen is modest and says she did not plagiarise Talking Points Memo editor Josh Marshall’s blog, but just committed the piece to memory – having been told it!

Maureen Dowd has a fine mind – a mind like a sponge:

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, in an email to Huffington Post, admits that a paragraph in her Sunday column was lifted from Talking Points Memo editor Josh Marshall’s blog last Thursday.

Maureen Dowd Wants Mark Thatcher For Prime Minsiter

NY Times columnist Maureen O’Dowd has been watching too much TeeVee as she haps on about the Clinton-Kennedy-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Kennedys of Washington.

Sarah Palin’s F*ck Me Shoes

SARAH Palin’s glasses. Sarah Plain’s hair. And now Sarah Palins f*ck me shoes:

All this, taken together, goes far beyond Maureen Dowd’s searing revelation that Sarah Palin wears shoes that are really intended for much younger women.

Jezz. Next we’ll be talking about Sarah Palin’s womb…
