Maureen, I was not aware that angry Hillary Clinton supporters equaled the body and full membership of feminism.
I can't even really explain the pointless turns to Amy Chozick's "Obama's too skinny" article or the relatively expanded exegesis on Obama as Mr. Darcy, except to say that Dowd honestly believes that every woman in America has the God-given ability to be as stupid as she is, but are just less jaded. The end of the article, incidentally, is a pitch perfect example of what "begging the question" as logical fallacy is - she asks if Obama can overcome the misconceptions placed against him while simultaneously accepting each and every one as invariably true. Well done, dumbass.
Dowd is like the anti-feminist Batman. She thinks women are a cowardly and superstitious lot, easily scared by the mysteries of the night. Or math.
