Maureen Dowd, "Donald Trump Struts in His Own Pageant": Is Dowd a 3?

Is Maureen Dowd a 3? Mind you, I'm referring to a "3" in terms of opinion piece quality.

In her latest New York Times op-ed entitled "Donald Trump Struts in His Own Pageant," Dowd returns to the subject of Donald for the third time in three weeks. And while this might please the Donald to no end, it leaves me wondering whether Dowd's journalistic well has gone bone dry. This time around, Dowd writes:

"It is a fable conjured up in several classic movies: A magnetic, libidinous visitor shows up and insinuates himself into the lives of a bourgeois family. The free spirit leaves, but only after transforming the hidebound family, so that none of them can see themselves the same way again."

In fact, Trump is no transformer. Rather, he and his coiffure are a reflection of the shallowness of our Times. Can you even begin to imagine a Trump/Hillary debate? It could be headlined "Narcissism Gone Wild."

  1. Trump trumps talking about anything that reminds the Dems about Iran or Hillary's emails, or that Jim Webb is a presidential candidate for the Democratic Party.

    In a Trump-free news cycle, Webb would be talking about Iran instead of economic justice. or anchor babies.

    "..."The danger in the Iran agreement is in what it does not address, other than nuclear issues, that allows Iran to continue to gain a greater balance of the power in a very fragile region,” Webb said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “It affects Israel. It affects the Sunni countries.” ..."

    Try to imagine a Webb-Perry debate. Marine v Air Force: veterans who are NOT narcissists.

    CA Gov Jerry Brown just said Hillary needs to drive a stake through her 'email vampires' on Meet the Press. Brown says he is too busy fighting forest fires to run for the presidency.
