Responding to Maureen Dowd’s shameless Palin screed, Jack in Silver Springs said on the post thread
I think that your description of Dowd as a lightweight does a disservice to lightweights. She's beyond lightweight.Jack has a point.
I struggled to find the right word for Dowd.
“Clown” came to mind, but most clowns I’ve met wouldn’t descend to the level Dowd did in her nasty, sexist column in which she even used the Palin children as part of her trashing of their Mom.
I dismissed “sophomoric” because most sophomores I’ve known have been much more mature than Dowd.
The foul language words? I won’t touch them. I don't want them on the comment thread.
Maybe what I should have settled for is “Maureen Dowd’s shameless Palin screed is even worse than her usual shameless screeds.”
Thanks, Jack, for your comment.
