On Maureen Dowd

Leave it to the Dowdy one to (in the words of a former baseball coach of mine) go bat-sh*+-crazy in her description of "core conservatives." As I blogged at CFIF:

The writing sins there are abundant: extreme triteness (gee, it is just so original and clever to call conservatives “troglodytes” and “antediluvians” — although one does wonder, as a matter of chronology, how we can be troglodytes and “medieval” at the same time), breathless overstatement not as intentional irony but as an actual attempt at persuasion, and blind, over-broad, demonizing assertions unmoored from proof.

Again, please read my whole post.
