Like Thomas Friedman Declaring War on Silly Metaphors

Maureen Dowd attacking the Mama Grizzlies:

Whether theyíre mistreating the help or belittling the presidentís manhood, making snide comments about a rivalís hair or ripping an opponent for spending money on a menís fashion show, the Mean Girls have replaced Hope with Spite and Cool with Cold. They are the ideal nihilistic cheerleaders for an angry electorate.
Not that I have any interest in defending Sarah Palin or Christine O'Donnell, but what hypocritical nonsense that is. Isn't Dowd the woman who coined the phrase "Obambi," calls all Democratic politicians girls and has been at the forefront of putting stupid, inconsequential bullshit at the forefront of political analysis? Maureen Dowd criticizes the "mean girls" approach to politics- she INVENTED the "mean girls" approach to politics.
