Dear Columnists, it’s very simple

You either need to embrace The Big Orange, sign on to kicking the libs all the way to November and acknowledge that there may come a moment in the upcoming debates when he pelvic thrusts the  well padded trousers of his tailored suits OR you can stop dehumanizing Hillary for fun and profit.

Really, it’s that simple.

Also, the more you put Creamsicle on your front page, the more legitimacy as a candidate he gets. It’s not just for entertainment value anymore.

Finally, I have tried to stay away from mentioning Maureen Dowd on this blog for a very long time but I think it’s time she got some therapy before she’s allowed to unleash any more of her word salad on the Op/Ed page of the NY Times anymore. As someone who is as much of a throwback to the white gloved Catholic girl meme and who accepted her Mean Girl role in journalism without achieving any further self-actualization, MoDo is the last person in the world who should be lecturing (or just raving, let’s face it) anyone on feminism.

Speaking of the NY Times, what kind of sick joke is this is the weekly line up of regular columnists. You know, the ones with the 401Ks and pension plans. Not the freelancers and contractors, the second class columnists, where you throw in a few more women:

  • David Brooks Tu, F

     Frank Bruni Su, W

  • Roger Cohen Tu, F

  • Gail Collins Th, Sa

  • Ross Douthat Su

  • Maureen Dowd Su

  • Thomas L. Friedman W

  • Nicholas Kristof Su, Th

  • Paul Krugman M, F

No one at the NY Times should go off on an unhinged tangent about feminism until this egregious lack of women’s voices is rectified.
