If, somehow, by the grace of God...or in this case...by the grace of NOW...these two were...just...maybe...able to combine their DNA (again to the well of mad science, he goes!), the results would be astounding.
On the one hand we have Maureen Dowd, certainly the father of this unholy fusion:
Traits (all genetic): Rides a broom, überbitch, zero humor, uncanny ability to sling long overused phrases of mud for the dwindling readership of the New York CrimesOn the other hand we have the Wicked Witch of Congress:
Likes: Barack Obama, the Democratic Party, Joseph Stalin
Dislikes: George W. Bush, Sarah Palin, humor
Turn-ons: NOW doesn't allow her any. Well...there is that homeless guy...Paco...who lives in the alley behind the office, but I promised not to tell anyone because Paco doesn't want to ruin his reputation. Oops...sorry, Paco! It just slipped out.
The result? The Curious Case of Benjamin Button...
Traits (all cosmetic): OWNS (through extortion) the factory from which came Maureen Dowd's broom, überclown, hermaphrodite (strap on)
Likes: Abortions, Botox, Barack Obama, the Democratic Party, Cap-and-Slave, national health care, whips and chains
Dislikes: The Pope, George W. Bush, U.S. Constitution, people with brains
Turn-ons: Henry Waxman, Al Whore
...the only reporter to have interviewed all 44 presidents.
On the positive side, "Benjamin" just might be the right pit bull to do us all a bloody favor and get Robert "Ahhhhh" Gibbs fired for looking foolish while never answering a question.
