Republican mean girls.....

From the New York Times Opinion Page comes this column by Maureen Dowd:

We are in the era of Republican Mean Girls, grown-up versions of those teenage tormentors who would steal your boyfriend, spray-paint your locker and, just for good measure, spread rumors that you were pregnant.

These women — Jan, Meg, Carly, Sharron, Linda, Michele, Queen Bee Sarah and sweet wannabe Christine — have co-opted and ratcheted up the disgust with the status quo that originally buoyed Barack Obama. Whether they’re mistreating the help or belittling the president’s manhood, making snide comments about a rival’s hair or ripping an opponent for spending money on a men’s fashion show, the Mean Girls have replaced Hope with Spite and Cool with Cold. They are the ideal nihilistic cheerleaders for an angry electorate.
Yesterday the Turner Report noticed that Sarah Palin's PAC had kicked in with a $5,000 campaign donation to Vicky Hartzler, Ike Skelton's opponent.

I watched the Blunt-Carnahan debate today on C-SPAN for the second time.

One glaring reality that came to me is that Robin Carnahan talks, acts and looks like Jack Goodman.

Palin's a bitch.

She belongs on Jerry Springer's show.

You know someday those kids she doesn't raise herself will be on some talk show discussing "mommy dearest" and telling of their nightmare childhoods. It's coming.
