Dowd(y)'s Sunday Column of Satire Re Bush
In 2000, Dowdy ridiculed Gore without mercy. Never mind that he was a decent, hard working, intelligent and patriotic public servant and Bush was (and is) a bag of ordure*.
Dowdy did her bit to help Bush to get elected. Shame on Maureen Dowdy!
Furthermore, Bush is not the big problem. He is a hyena and there will always be hyenas ready to grab power and harm the country.
There ARE however two big problems, which need to be addressed:
1. The media. The reporters and the pundits are too ignorant, lazy and cowardly to debunk the garbage that's distributed by the Bushes and the Cheneys and their ilk. Include Dowdy. Yeah, she's finally waking up, but it's late.
2. The voters are too lazy and uninterested to analyze the garbage that Rove, Bush, Cheney and the other demagogues put out and vote against their own self-interest. That is the only possible explanation for the re-election of Bush & Cheney. Their lies were perfectly transparent. Yet tens of millions of voters re-elected them.
*Ordure = excrement; dung, something regarded as vile or obnoxious..
