Maureen Channels Marvin
Maureen Dowd wrote one heck of a funny column today with next to no fingernails on the blackboard. Next to; she did say that New Orleans was "the city [Bush] let drown."
She concludes the piece by channeling Dr. Suess' “Marvin K. Mooney, Will You Please Go Now!”
“The time has come. The time has come. The time is now. Just go. ... I don’t care how. You can go by foot. You can go by cow. Hillary R. Clinton, will you please go now! You can go on skates. You can go on skis. ... You can go in an old blue shoe.But she won't, she won't go now. No matter how they howl, she won't go now. Not on a horse, not on a cow. Look at the ruckus they raise! But she just stays and stays and stays!
Just go, go, GO!”
Leaving Obama with this:
But this is clearly a man who can’t wait to get back to his organic scrambled egg whites. That was made plain with his cri de coeur at the Glider Diner in Scranton when a reporter asked him about Jimmy Carter and Hamas.Nice. It must be crushing to him that we aren't just handing him are nation on a platter because he's so darn special.
“Why” he pleaded, sounding a bit, dare we say, bitter, “can’t I just eat my waffle?”
His subtext was obvious: Why can’t I just be president? Why do I have to keep eating these gooey waffles and answering these gotcha questions and debating this gonzo woman?
