NY Times columnist Maureen Dowd writes:
The Mayans were right, as it turns out, when they predicted the world would end in 2012. It was just a select world: the G.O.P. universe of arrogant, uptight, entitled, bossy, retrogressive white guys.Dowd's last book is Are Men Necessary?: When Sexes Collide, where she complains that feminists have difficult time finding a husband. She herself has no husband or kids. She won a Pulitzer Prize for her sarcastic columns about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.
Just another vanishing tribe that fought the cultural and demographic tides of history. ...
Instead of smallpox, plagues, drought and Conquistadors, the Republican decline will be traced to a stubborn refusal to adapt to a world where poor people and sick people and black people and brown people and female people and gay people count.
Dowd and other liberals are counting the tribal voters, and are now convinced that they now have enough to control the political future of the USA. My theory is that pernicious parasites turn victims into zombies.
