B-list Maureen Dowd

Joan Vennochi pollutes the Boston Globe with pissy middle school insults aimed at Barack Obama. They could have been ghost-written by the RNC. Of course, of course, she balances her column with John McCain's modesty.

Joan, here's a little unfriendly but sincere advice: If you're in pain, as your writing suggests, get some help or medication, or find some joy. Also, journalism is a tough and precarious career these days, but the MoDo moment is ending under the weight of a huge variety of free, fresh-blogged snark; find another way to be valuable.
