Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Could Maureen Dowd have written this?

Here's a quote from what is probably the best Maureen Dowd column ever on a topic other than organ transplantation:

We do not live in a secular country. There are all sorts of people of faith that place moral values over personal freedoms. They are not all "wacky evangelicals." They are people who don't like Howard Stern piping a hard porn show over the airwaves and wrapping himself in the freedom of the First Amendment. They don't like being told that a young girl does not have to seek her mother's counsel about an abortion. They don't like seeing an eight-month-old fetus having his head punctured and his brains sucked out. They don't like being told the Pledge of Allegiance, a moment of silent prayer and the words "under God" are offensive to an enlightened few so nobody should be allowed to use them.

If this doesn't sound like Maureen Dowd, that's because Maureen didn't write that snippet. Her brother Kevin did. Which gives us an idea: Since William Safire is retiring next month, why not make Kevin Dowd the Times' new conservative op-ed columnist?
