Maureen Dowd Inanity Watch

From today's New York Times:

"Some critics say Hillary doesn’t have the foreign-policy chops for the job. But she would stop the pompous John Kerry from getting it, and that is a formidable recommendation. (You know he just wants to swan around in those striped pants.)"

As Fishbulb once put it, "She reads like a sarcastic 6th-grader." Couldn't agree more. Does anyone else get the impression that Dowd was one of the pretty, popular girls in high school, only she wasn't the prettiest and she certainly wasn't the most talented, but she got to sit with them during lunch because she went to middle school with one really pretty girl and the others put up with her because she had a penchant for making nasty, cutting little remarks like the one above?

Hey, have you gotten your invitation to Maureen's birthday party yet? Oh, yeah, that's right, you weren't invited. (Giggle giggle giggle giggle)
