Soooooo hiiiiiiiiiigh you guyyyyyyysssss


Oh dear. It seems New York Times columnist and comedienne has overdosed on candy again, and, in a marijuana-fueled rage, has typed another mud puddle of words on her favorite subject in all the land, Madam You-Know-Who:

After running as a man last time around, Hillary Clinton is now running as a woman.

The nerve! The audacity! The oh-the-humanity of Hillary Clinton foolishly thinking that in this, the year of our Jesus Effing Christ two thousand and SIXTEEN, it might be OK to run for president as a woman. (Ha, stupid Hillz, wrong again!)

Matthew Dowd, the former W. strategist who became an independent, says Hillary got it backward: She should have run as a woman in 2008, when she was beating back a feminized antiwar candidate. And she should have run as a man this time, when Americans feel beleaguered and scared and yearn for something “big and masculine and strong,” as Dowd put it.

It's so hard to remember that Maureen Dowd is supposed to be one of the "liberal" columnists at the Times, the left side of the "both sides do it" counterweight to the equally insufferable David Brooks, for example, and Ross Douthat, the cranky old man trapped in a Gen-Xer's dad bod, who wants you kids to stop doing sex, listening to hippity hop, and for god's sake, get off his lawn. It's always hard, really, but especially so when MoDo is approvingly citing George Dubya Bush's former strategist to simultaneously call Barack Obama a pussy and Hillary Clinton a stupid "woman," instead of reassuring terrified Americans by swinging her big ol' genitals, like a real man.

MoDo's list of complaints include Clinton campaigning with popular women (!), appearing on a woman-hosted "cozy chat show with women" on Lifetime (!!), and talking about how when she was a little girl, she was a little girl instead of boy and what that was like (!!!). Perhaps most offensively of all, however:

She told Rachel Maddow she wouldn’t rule out an all-estrogen ticket by choosing a female running mate.

What a transparent case of special-interest pandering, refusing to deny that it's at least hypothetically possible that the best candidate to be her running mate might be a woman. As if there is more than one woman in the entire country adequately qualified to fuck up America from the Oval Office as well as any of the men before her.

Dowd, allegedly a fellow woman -- and a liberal, don't forget -- launches into a tirade of why women are terrible, actually:

It always sounds nice to say that women are more collegial and empathetic and helpful to other women and that they see the big picture more clearly, and sometimes it’s true. But sometimes it’s not — especially with hard-boiled alpha women trying to break gender barriers.

Look at Carly Fiorina’s crash at Hewlett-Packard.

We have looked at Fiorina's crash at Hewlett-Packard, many times. But Fiorina-bashing is not the point here. As per usual and always, the point is that Maureen Dowd really, really, really cannot stand that woman, Hillary Clinton. And, dude, she just took an extra big hit off her chocolate pot bar and she has this AMAZING insight:

Since we cannot know if a woman is going to overcompensate on machismo — as Hillary did on the unjustified Iraq invasion — we may want to look at it a different way.

It may be more relevant to ask if someone is a cat or a dog.

The feline Barack Obama began his aloof reign wanting to prowl alone on the stage and he’s ending it the same way.

It may be more relevant -- or it may be that Maureen Dowd ran out of semi-coherent ideas for her columns back when scrunchies were still a thing. We won't bother with a close reading of her arguments that President Obama is like a cat, cold and aloof, hissing at Dowd and refusing to cuddle her through the long winter nights. No, let's skip right ahead to the "What even the hell?" crescendo:

Both Hillary and Trump have been emphasizing that they will do a lot more schmoozing with lawmakers and others who disagree with them, vowing to be dogs with a bone, eager canines offering paws, and not a cool cat stalking away at the first sign of difficulty or when affection is most desired.

“You have to build those relationships and constantly be looking for common ground no matter how small a sliver it may be,” Hillary told The Des Moines Register on Monday.

We were led to believe that Clinton is barely likable (at best!) and frigid (obviously; just look at all the blood on her hands and the splooge stains on other women's dresses). But now that she's trying to build relationships like a typical weak-female puppy dog named Donald Trump ... you know what? We can't finish that thought, because we have no idea where it was supposed to go other than the timeless Dowd conclusion that HILLARY CLINTON BAD.

After all these decades, you'd think Dowd might get tired of trying to invent clever ways to say that. You'd think.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
