Maureen Dowd's Paranoia

It's nice to catch these columns and record them as they happen This one was on September 12, 2009, By Maureen Down, titled "Boy, Oh Boy."

These New York Times writers sometimes are like a dog waiting for you to throw a stick. They're panting. I guess the veins stand out in their necks. Maureen could't wait stand it. She needed to hear Joe Wilson say something racist, and he didn't say it, so she said it for him:

Surrounded by middle-aged white guys — a sepia snapshot of the days when
such pols ran Washington like their own men’s club — Joe Wilson yelled “You
lie!” at a president who didn’t.

But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!
Sorry Mo. He didn't say anything racist. He didn't say "boy".

Maureen Dowd spent the rest of her column ruminating about racism in South Carolina.

Odd too, Maureen Dowd's column didn't say anything about why Joe Wilson called Obama a liar, which is actually pretty ironic, because the topic was proving US Citizenship to get free emergency room care.

Some of the Republicans, including Congressman Wilson, had proposed citizenship tests to get free government health care.


Well the chickens have come home to roost.
