I Love Maureen Dowd
One of the New York Times's most critical and sharply humorous columnists today takes on a compare-and-contrast of Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton, and how they have in many ways switched roles from who they were in the 2008 presidential election campaign, in "Sarah Grabs the Grievance Bag." Hillary Clinton, the presidential contender who was attacked for being too wonky and seeming paranoid is now at the top of Obama's Cabinet and respected for being at the top of her policy game. Palin, the darling of the far right, has (with McCain) lost the Republicans' battle for the White House, resigned her governorship a year and a half early, and is now sounding like a paranoid whiner. You gotta love the kharma.
