Maureen Dowd… you know, I’m going to be better than what I was tempted to be and simply note that this is an entertaining column* from her:
Why is it that America’s roil family always seems better in abstract than in concrete? The closer it gets to running the world once more, the more you are reminded of all the things that bugged you the last time around.
The Clintons’ neediness, their sense of what they are owed in material terms for their public service, their assumption that they’re entitled to everyone’s money.
Are we about to put the “For Rent” sign back on the Lincoln Bedroom?
After all, the goal is to make Maureen do better, not make her wonder why she even bothered to try.
PS: I am not even going to make something of the roil/royal thing. If that was accidental of Maureen Dowd, she should never ever ever admit it: the substitution works perfectly.
*Via Jonah Goldberg, who is bemused about that, too:
What a nice change of pace; a Maureen Dowd column I enjoyed. http://t.co/m7ASP5593N
