what the fuck is Maureen Dowd's problem
here is a woman who knows how to hate.
Maureen Dowd fucking hates Hillary Clinton’s guts.
this is not an exaggeration, nor am I treading over any new ground here.
but MoDo’s Hillary-hate goes far beyond that of a pundit disagreeing with a person’s politics, or activities. no, for MoDo, it’s personal. very personal. she basically hates it that Hillary even exists.
did Hillary strangle Maureen’s childhood puppy? there’s not much else that would justify the years of vicious attacks.
this Hillary obsession has certainly clouded Dowd’s ability to make rational judgements.
let us count the ways in which Dowd has gone after the email lady. no wait, we don’t have to, because Oliver Willis of Media Matters has already done the hard work for us.
let us just say that here is a woman who knows how to hate.
so it seems quite natural that Maureen Dowd has now joined the Hunter Biden pile-on.
MoDo is very very very very upset that Joe Biden never mentions Hunter Biden’s child born out of wedlock.
I didn’t know about about Hunter Biden’s child. did you know? probably not. but this morning, millions of people woke up, opened the New York Times and learned all about her.
long story short: five years ago, during one of Hunter’s famous drug-fueled nights, he impregnated a sex worker. he claims to have no memory of the episode, but DNA testing confirms paternity. and yes, it absolutely seems that Hunter should be doing a much better job of being a father to this 4-year-old girl.
but is this any of our business? why do we have to know this?
how does any of this help this poor little no-longer-anonymous girl?
what office is Hunter Biden running for that we need to have his entire life publicly dissected?
does every aspect of Hunter Biden’s existence have to be put under a microscope?
people, can we at long last please leave this poor man alone. the guy’s been through some shit. his mother died in a car crash. his brother died of brain cancer.
his life went off the rails, but he seems to have cleaned himself up and he is facing accountability for his financial misdeeds — and yes, again, he could be a better father.
but again, this is really none of our business.
all this is just an excuse to tar Joe Biden by association. if Hunter Biden were Hunter Schmoe, we’d have never heard of the guy.
Joe Biden loves his son. that’s pretty much all he’s guilty of.
yes, Hunter’s traded off the family name — as if that never happens among the families of the wealthy and powerful.
remember, this is the same media ecosystem that blows a fucking gasket every time someone mentions that Barron Trump is freakishly tall. no! no! they scream. it’s ok to go after public figures, but the children are off limits!
Individual-1 Junior — who quite publicly dumped his wife and five children for a pneumatic floatation device older than his second stepmother — can spend every night fucked out of his mind on who even knows what, posting one incoherent video after another, and no one in the media says boo.
if Don Jr. has the right to privacy, so has Hunter Biden.
what the fuck, MoDo? what the fuck, media?

folks, a word on a different subject before I let you go: we’re doing some quarterly fundraising at my other venture, The Smirking Chimp. I’m leery of even mentioning it because if you’re one of the people paying to support my own writing here, you’re already doing god’s work and you’re already doing more than enough to help out. but if you’ve got five dollars that you absolutely wouldn’t miss and you do feel like supporting the Chimp, well, that just makes you twice the hero. the donation link is here, or you can go straight to paypal if you need no further convincing. and if you don’t care to donate, that’s totally cool, too, and we will not speak of this again. in fact, we never had this conversation. thanks for listening and that’s it from me for now.
