Word, Maureen

By Chloe Angyal

I rarely say this after reading a Maureen Dowd column, but word. Also, amen and ditto.
Dowd had a great column this Sunday about Palin's perplexing syntax, in which she also asks,

"We could, following her strenuously folksy debate performance, wonder when elite became a bad thing in America. Navy Seals are elite, and they get lots of training so they can swim underwater and invade a foreign country, but if you’re governing the country that dispatches the Seals, it’s not O.K. to be elite? Can likable still trump knowledgeable at such a vulnerable crossroads for the country?"
Word, MDo. Word.
Thanks to Sylvia for the tip!
