This morning Maureen Dowd pretends to write about Paul Newman (RIP), but uses him as a foil:
>>At a moment when America feels angry and betrayed, when our leaders have forfeited our trust and jeopardized our future, we lost an American icon who stood for traits that have been in short supply in the Bush administration: shrewdness, humility, decency, generosity, class.<<
Uh, say.... Mo??!!
Have you forgotten all of the 1990s?
shrewdness – Hillary Health Care?
humility, -- Oh such humble people, condemning the decade of greed – NOT the 90s (Howell Raines, OMB director, call your office at Fannie Mae, where you raped and pillaged for tens of millions, James Johnson -- ditto!!)
decency -- Gennifer Flowers? Juanitta Brodderick? Bill and "decency" are, well, not acquainted.
generosity -- they deducted donating their USED UNDERWEAR from their taxes !!!!
Class? Hey Monica, how do you spell it?
There is not enough room in my barn and pastures for this fertilizer.
