Score one for Maureen Dowd!

...or maybe not. In today's NYT, where revenues are mysteriously falling, she pens an erudite examination of Sarah Palin entitled Vice in Go-Go Boots? You know Maureen. She's the author of that wildly successful relationship advice book, Are Men Necessary? She's also one of the Democrats' leading essayists and has a prime role at the NYT, the nation's paper of record. Here's a little of what she had to say about Sarah Palin.
Enthusiastic Republicans don’t see the choice of Palin as affirmative action, despite her thin résumé and gaping absence of foreign policy knowledge, because they expect Republicans to put an underqualified “babe,” as Rush Limbaugh calls her, on the ticket. They have a tradition of nominating fun, bantamweight cheerleaders from the West, like the previous Miss Congeniality types...
Meow! That's gotta sting. What an impressive grasp of the issues Maureen has. What an amazingly sharp mind! Isn't it great that at least one of the two major political parties sees women as something more than just sex objects?

By the way, for a bantamweight cheerleader, Sarah Palin's done quite a bit. And Barack Obama's equivalent accomplishments would be ... what?
