Maureen Dowd Loves Gendered Jabs (Especially for Democrats)


| 6/12/2008 6:02:44 PM


No surprise here: A report by Media Matters for America found that Maureen Dowd has “frequently characterized” the 2008 Democratic presidential candidates “using gendered language, specifically characterizing Clinton as masculine, and Obama and Edwards as feminine.”

For those of us who preserve our sanity by avoiding her column altogether, the report serves as a helpful reminder to continue doing so.
