Maureen Dowd Has One Point; Misses Another

I definitely sympathize with her complaint that there aren't many female columnists out there. (With any luck maybe I'll be able to help redress the balance in the future.) I also agree that women pundits are often unfairly depicted as castrating harridans. What Dowd fails to address is that perhaps the reason so many of us loathe her is that she customarily writes snarky, snippy, pompous columns. So in her case at least, there's a damn good reason for disparagement.
