Foxy and Fighting

What a surprise:

Which New York Times Op-Ed Columnist Are You?


You are Maureen Dowd! You like to give people silly nicknames and write in really short, non sequitur paragraphs. You’re the most playful of the columnists and a rock-ribbed liberal, but are often accused of being too flamboyant and frivolous. You tend to focus on style over substance, personality over politics. But your heart is in the right place. Plus, you are a total fox.

Flamboyant and frivolous, I don’t know, but I’ll take foxy. MoDo did indeed give Obama a silly nickname or two in her column Wednesday, but there was nary a non sequitur in sight as she broke out the fightin’ words. A good, incisive article worth checking out if you have TimesSelect or LexisNexis. I think Dowd is right; if Obama takes off the kid gloves a bit more, he’ll be a stronger candidate – and I’d wager so will the mama lion (silly nickname alert!). We’ve got a deep field, but it’s only spring training right now. Much as I hate to see Democrats tear one another apart, a civil, but critical dialogue could be good preparation for whomever emerges as the nominee.
