Maureen Dowd, 17 November 2012:
Is Rice Cooked?
OUR Rice is better than your Rice.
That’s the argument Democrats are aggressively making against Republicans.
And it’s true. Condi Rice sold her soul. Susan Rice merely rented hers on the talk shows one Sunday in September.
Marie Burns, NYTimes Examiner, 18 November 2012:
Meanwhile, Dowd masks and bolsters the Republicans’ unfounded accusations. If Dowd thinks the intelligence community was too cautious in its initial assessment, or too opaque in its early releases to the public, why doesn’t she say so? Instead of faulting the authors of the talking points – you know, older white guys like former CIA director David Petraeus and NSA Director James Clapper – she fingers the spokeswoman. Just like John McCain & Lindsey Graham, Dowd blames the messenger. And just like McCain and Graham, Dowd relies on phony assertions to do so. Indeed, Dowd cannot criticize McCain and Graham because she’s fishing in the same cesspool of half-truths and innuendo favored by the Old White Boys’ Resentment Club. Not surprisingly, Dowd catches the same variety of sexist, racist carp the GOP anglers so commonly nab bare-handed.
Adam Shah, Media Matters, 28 November 2012:
New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd defied her own paper’s reporting to hype false Republican attacks on Ambassador Susan Rice.
Dowd devoted much of her November 27 column to quoting questions Republican Sen. Susan Collins (ME) had for Rice — who currently serves as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, and is rumored to be a possible nominee to become the next secretary of state — regarding statements Rice made during September appearances on Sunday political shows about the attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya. But the questions Dowd posed have already been answered by Times reporting, and those answers show that Rice is being unfairly attacked.
Maureen Dowd, 12 January 2013:
PRESIDENT OBAMA ran promoting women’s issues.
But how about promoting some women?
Sarah, Proud and Tall, 13 January 2013:
Go fuck yourself, Maureen, you fucking arsehole.
