regrets, has she had a few?

Today Maureen Dowd notes how de facto President George W. Bush, de facto King Dick Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and the rest are quite happy with their performance at the highest ranks of the American government. Dowd writes, correctly, that "things keep spiraling while W. keeps fiddling. Just as when he was in the National Guard and didn’t bother to show up, now, as the scabrous consequences of his missteps shake the economy and the world, he doesn’t bother to show up. He’s checked out — spending his time on more than a dozen exit interviews that do nothing to change his image as a president who was over his head and under Cheney’s spell."


So Dowd, do you regret your role in the selection of Bush as President? Remember, all you media types, how you ripped Al Gore for (allegedly) saying he invented the Internet, for getting fashion advice from Naomi Wolf, for sighing, for being a stiff bore, for carping on about climate change and the environment?

In short, you and others in the so-called liberal media collectively committed character assassination on Gore to the point that Bush was able to eke out (helped by Poppy's Supreme Court) a dubious victory in the electoral college (but STILL losing the popular vote).

Any regrets there, Maureen?

I don't think Maureen Dowd had a seat on the Supreme Court or made any of those senile voters in Palm Beach County vote for Buchanan.

Don't blame Maureen for pointing out that the emperor's earth tone robes were rather threadbare.

Gore was a stiff and should shoulder the blame for his inept campaign. Maureen was just the messenger that he was running a disaster in the making.

Also, I refuted the "Dowd defeated Gore" meme here. Gore was his own worst enemy and is solely to blame for us being stuck with Dubya.
