She is, perhaps, the worst human being operating in the media-industrial complex. And yes I realize that's saying quite a bit. But, sadly, I doubt her editors actually care.

The good news is that I think the age of Dowd has passed. That isn't to say she won't influence the way the blue collar boys from NBC talk about things, but once upon a time informed and sophisticated people would pass on her bon mots. I can't remember the last time someone said "did you read Maureen Dowd today?" except to trash her.
