    Frank Rich Knows The Answer, He Just Can’t Say It

    Frank Rich Knows The Answer, He Just Can’t Say It

    Frank Rich asks the question “Who Will Stand Up To The Superrich?”

    Rich never answers the question, he just complains (mostly about Republicans who self-fund campaigns, and Republican corporate interests, etc.)

    But Rich knows the answer.  And there isn’t a Democrat in sight.  The One who might have been the answer to that question turned out to be happy to play crony capitalism as needed to advance his agenda.

    There really is only one politician who is not beholden to wealthy corporate interests, who could raise a gazillion dollars from small donors without having to turn off credit card security features meant to prevent foreign donations, and who has a vision of our economic system which does not reward the well-connected or corporate interests.

    Rich knows the answer.  He just can’t bring himself to say it.

    The two words would force Rich to question almost every nasty rant he has written in the last 27 months, and every assumption he has made about conservatism. 

    And then Rich would have to put up or shut up.  Does Rich really truly want someone who will stand up to the superrich, or only someone who will stand up to the Republican superrich?

    Say it Frank. 

    And once you do, cancel all your cocktail party acceptances, before they rescind the invitations. 

    And get a pillow for MoDo, so she doesn’t hit her head on the floor when she faints.

    I wonder if the two words match a name who was vindicated in a major way yesterday when Krugman and the smarmy Liberal table on Face the Nation admitted that yes, Obamacare will require
    1) tax increases
    2) a VAT tax



    Ooh! Ooh! I know! I know!

    Because Bush demonstrated that prior executive experience doesn't guarantee a successful presidency, we can ignore the unnamed politician's lack of an extended track record in high office.

    Oh, wait. There I go again, confusing 2008 and 2010…

    The Good Witch of the North

    The Arctic Fox

    The Queen of the Frozen Tundra

    The Alaskan Goddess

    The Thrilla from Wasilla

    The 45th President of the United States

    Frank Rich? Oh, yes, he's the one who called John McCain, a decorated war hero who chose to remain in captivity at the hands of a brutal regime out of principle, "unpatriotic." And of course, how could McCain's service compare to working on the Harvard Crimson?

    But as to Maureen Dowd–I will demonstrate another time through logic and reason that there is no "Maureen Dowed;" "MoDo," as we fans like to call the construct, has no more actual existence than Betty Crocker. "Maureen Dowd" is an elaborate practical joke the NY Times has been playing on its readers, for too long, if you ask me.
